This is going to take some getting used to…

…for an airport geek like me, anyway: Yes, United and Continental are merging.  So my current favorite airline (CO) is merging with an airline that I haven’t made it onto yet (UAL), keeping the United name but ditching the UAL logo and livery for Continental’s.  Which is OK, I guess, considering that CO has a nice looking fleet, but I … Read More
