Remembering Continental Airlines

Jump to last reply

With the merger of Continental and United, last flight operated as a CO flight will take place on March 2, at 11:59p Mountain Standard Time as CO1267 PHX-CLE. 4 minutes prior, CO6 will depart NRT on March 3, at 3:55p Japan Time for IAH - that will be the last CO flight in the air.

Flights departing after those may still be listed as CO on your itinerary, but internally they're UA flights.

Personally, CO is the top airline I've flown in terms of both segments (81, about 20%) and miles (230K, about 31%). And this is just for mainline, and does not include regionals.

My first flight was in August 1983 for IAH-SFO. Most recent was GUM-HKG last September. Most significantly, I've flown EWR-HKG seven times and HKG-EWR three times (which were for some time longest twin-engine non-stop flights in the world). And I've flown in all their current aircraft types: 735, 73G, 738, 739, 739ER, 752, 753, 762, 764 and 777.

Maybe this is a good time for others to share their CO experience.
