Public Service Announncement: United & Continental Merger

In a few hours Continental will cease to exist ; (

I was actually a fan of CO and flew on their BusinessFirst Product from Newark to Bombay and was impressed. I also liked their DIRECTV in-flight entertainment.

Now before you freak about about your CO miles, don’t worry they will still be there tomorrow in the form of United miles!

Using Miles, a free points tracking service, just sent me an extremely helpful email about the United / Continental merger, so I thought I’d share it!
