United Continental: “The companies have also started the first phase of optimising their combined route network to offer customers more travel options. United and Continental continue to operate as separate carriers, and will do so until they receive their single operating certificate, which they currently expect to achieve by the end of 2011. However, travelers will begin to see a more unified product in the spring of 2011, as the carriers integrate key customer service and marketing activities to deliver a more seamless product,” Company statement.
