Continental & United Merger: FF acct ?

Jump to last reply

Getting notices from AMEX to transefer any AMEX points into Continental OnePass FF (to buy tickets, upgrdes etc) acct before end of Sept 2011 due to merger with United. Went to Continnental to do so today & this message below appeared.

Anyone have any thoughts or advice transfer or don't?

Question: it would appear that if I transfer Amex miles into Continental, they will become United miles? so since I have plenty of United FF miles, it does not appear to be much benefit as United does not offer "same status level complimentary First Class upgrades"..I would have to Buy with FF miles or cash outright. United is one of the airlines that does NOT allow AMEX point transfers...so maybe this is the only benefit.

Noted too that AMEX only allows AMEX points transfer to Aeroplan, Delta nad CathyPacific after Continental is no more...also Inside Flyer posted a note about Continental miles never expired but once transfered to United, will expire 18 months without activity...

(Delta where I received many complimentary upgrades on due to status is no longer flying into Cody where my elderly Dad lives and I have to fly in at least 3 times a year and for emergencies Iike to use FF for First Class upgrades)
