Airline Continental Airlines


Continental Airlines is a renowned airline with the fourth largest airline in the United States of America.

The history of this company dates back to July 1934. Until the beginning of World War II, the company was engaged in air transportation of mail cargo and passengers. During the war, all of the company's activities, of course, were subordinated to the equipment and maintenance of military aircraft for the needs of the US Army. The company received some profit from this activity, and this allowed it to significantly expand its fleet at the end of hostilities. Simultaneously with the increase in aircraft units, the route network of Continental Airlines is also expanding.

The merger of Continental with another airline in 1954 led to an increase in the geography of flights, but they were still limited to domestic flights. Only by the end of the 50s did the company's management seek permission for international flights. At the same time, there is a decrease in tariff rates and, as a result, a sharp increase in the company's passenger turnover. Having received a large profit, the company is among the first to completely withdraw turboprop and piston aircraft from circulation and replace them with modern jet airliners. A little later, Continental Airlines was the first to start operating wide-body aircraft.

In 1985, Continental Airlines was among the first to organize transcontinental flights. Since September 1997, the geography of the company's air transportation has been constantly growing. The company's fleet is annually replenished with the most modern liners, and 2009 in the history of the company was marked by the first demonstration flight of an aircraft to biofuel.

The company's management pays great attention to the quality of passenger service, trying to take into account all the smallest details. Customer service is provided according to three different classes. All aircraft of the company are equipped with audio and video systems, screens built into the backs of front facing seats.

For regular passengers, Continental Airlines has One Pass and Presidents Club programs. Participation in the first gives the opportunity to a regular customer earn a free ticket or upgrade the class of service. In the second program, passengers can spend their time waiting for a flight in the lounges.

Airlines of the World and Russian ...

aircraft design quite comfortable and, unlike the vast majority of Russian airline seats facing each other at a distance pretty well. The staff is fluent in both Russian and English, so that any difficulties with the explanations did not arise. The flight was very pleased.

Flew flight Las Vegas - Moscow through Houston. We made a mistake with the departure time and arrived at the airport in twenty minutes prior to departure. Maybe due to the fact that we were with the child, or would like us to quickly shake off in Moscow, but we regret and registered. We flew a little over three hours. At this time, on board the aircraft was offered a hot lunch and cake for dessert. The child is handed a toy and a book.
