Continental vs Delta?

I'm pricing flights from Orlando to Honolulu for next May, and both Continental and Delta are in the $550 range - which is a great price! I've had lots of experience on Delta but very little on Continental. I'd appreciate any comments. Continental is about $50 cheaper than Delta.

All I can say is that I fly Continental quite a bit and use their rewards credit card. I'm generally happy with them. I think flying with them is comparable to Delta.

I'd even put CO a bit over Delta. Their cabin service is better these days I think. They never curtailed it as much as other airlines did.

Don't take Delta if it connects through Atlanta, more delays than ever lately.

Both are sub-standard. Atlanta, Newark, hey, is there a difference? We use European airlines to the max, even for travel in the US, and don't say it cannot be done, LOL. Ciao, L

Continental still gives you a small meal on domestic flights and has a better on time record than Delta.

Houston, Newark, Cleveland are CO hubs. I would guess Houston for Honolulu.

Yes, it's Houston. We'll probably go with Continental if the prices remain lower than Delta. Thanks!
