Continental goes flat on its narrow bodies

The 41 narrow bodied Continental Boeing 757-200 aircraft operated principally between New York Newark Airport and Europe all now feature flat-bed seats in Business First.  The airline continues to market itself as Continental Airlines although it is well on the way to being totally integrated with partner carrier United whose name dominates freshly painted aircraft.

“With reconfigurations completed on 116 aircraft, United and Continental together offer more flat-bed premium cabin seats than any other US airline,” said United’s Senior Vice President of Marketing Mark Bergsrud.  “The flat-bed seats and advanced audio/video on-demand offer our customers an unmatched onboard experience.”

Continental completed the retrofit on its 22 Boeing 777s in December 2010.
