I miss continental. favorite airline, ever.Around the Holidays in 2010 I was staying a major hotel in Times Square for work and walked past the electronic meeting room calender. One of the meetings noted was "UAL CAL Executive Meeting." As I traveled a lot for work, I knew 'UAL' was United Airlines' stock symbol and 'Cal' was Continental Airlines's stock symbol. I was a 'gold' level frequent flyer in Continental. In May of 2010, the two airlines announced they were merging. Talk about tight secuirity around a multi-billion dollar transaction. LOL.
