    Ditto to the above. My parents have lived in Houston for more than 30 years, so naturally I accumulated a large number of Continental FF miles. Once they are gone, my days on United are over.

     

    For the 15 years prior to the merger, Continental was the best kept secret in air travel. Those days are no more. The only thing we are left with now is a choice of the lesser of the evils. Unfortunately for UAL, they are way down on that list.
