Not sure if anyone else knew this, but today (2nd) marked the last day of operations for Continental Airlines as a separate airline.

From tomorrow, all flights that were previously operated by CO will now use the UA flight code, and tickets will be sold using United's 016 stock number, replacing the 005 that Continental used to use.

With the new United expected to take delivery of its first Boeing 787 in Q2 2012, there are defiantly some exciting times ahead, but let's not forget that this day marks the end of an era!
