I had the misfortune of traveling on United Airlines for the first time after the “new” combined UA/CO system was put in place. I have been reading post on United’s facebook page, flyer talk and mainstream media about all the issues United was having with this “new” system. Reports of just poor customer service, odd things happing online, upgrades not clearing, massive delays and other issues just to name a few. I have been a loyal 1k with United for years and ...

With the end coming to Continental's participation in the Amex Platinum lounge program (September 2011), I began to look for alternative ways to access the lounge. While I don't fly CO or UA often, when I do, it is nice to have lounge access.
There are a few ways to get lounge access without being a member: Premium class passengers on trans-oceanic flights and UA's "ps" transcontinental flights enjoy complimentary access, as do certain UA/CO elites in economy on trans-oceanic ...
I still am rooting for this design, but at least the merger team at Continental/United is making some progress on the livery of the combined carrier.
When UA and CO announced they were getting hitched in May, they revealed this livery for the post-merger airline. I was horrified by it because it completely eliminated the UA-brand identity and the proposed "United Airlines" font appeared woefully outdated and unbecoming.
