The Houston Chronicle is reporting that Continental and United have agreed to merge. The merger was approved by both companies respective board of directors and is supposed to be announced tomorrow morning.
As a loyal flyer of both I'm truly sad to see this happen. While the big-wigs want to tout consolidation as neccesary, it is never good from a consumer standpoint as it reduces competition.

We'll see what the details are tomorrow, but this is definitely some sad news.
