- The Red Carpet Club no longer charges for bar service.
- Each airline includes the other's elite flyers in eligibility lists for complimentary upgrades.
- CEO Jeff Smisek addresses both sets of passengers in his pre-takeoff video recording.
- Both airlines now offer buy-on-board food, but United's menu is different--and about 50% more expensive, with a salad going for $6.50 on a Continental flight and almost $10.00 on one operated by United.
- Both airlines' lounges offer complimentary wi-fi, but at the Red Carpet Club you'll need to get a scratch-off card with a code on it, while Continental offers open connectivity to anyone inside its lounge.
Here's hoping that United and Continental are better together than they were apart.
