Continental Airlinesannounces that Mileage Plus and OnePass elite members are now able to sit more comfortably on both United and Continental flights. The new reciprocal seating benefits give Mileage Plus elite members access to domestic first-class upgrades, extra legroom seating and preferred seating on Continental flights, while OnePass elite members can enjoy unlimited domestic first-class and business-class upgrades and Economy Plus seating on United flights.
"We know Mileage Plus and OnePass members value upgrades and premium seating," said Jeff Foland, president of Mileage Plus Holdings. "Now whether flying on United or Continental, elites from each program get the best seats."
Reciprocal preferred seating is one of the first benefits frequent flyers may enjoy as United and Continental work to align their loyalty programs. Additional program benefits will be announced periodically over the coming months, with full integration of the programs anticipated in 2012. More information about reciprocal elite seating benefits can be found at www.mileageplus.com or www.continental.com/onepass.
