Continental’s New Mobile Portal: Empowering You.

With all of the bad news in the aviation industry I’d like to talk about something positive.  Continental recently launched one of the most impressive mobile sites ever: pda.continental.com

Here is the scoop on some of it’s groundbreaking features:

-Flight status that tells you the flight number of your inbound aircraft.  With the inbound flight number you can have a much better idea about the chance/time of delay for your flight.

-Real-time Battlefield upgrade standby list with passenger names.  This list tells you your upgrade priority rank versus every other elite member on the plane.  It also tells you how many elite members have received a complimentary upgrade, and even which seat they are in.  Additionally it says how many people are booked and checked into first class.  It maintains privacy by only listing your first initial and the first 3 letters of your last name.

-Real-time flight standby list: What your rank is for clearing standby on a flight, and how many passengers have already cleared standby or are still on the list.

-Real-time seating maps showing the availability of every seat on the plane, including blocked seats that only a gate agent can assign.

-Online check-in.

-Boarding pass display so that you don’t need to print a boarding pass to clear security (Limited airports only at the current time)

-And many, many more features.

To illustrate how I was able to use it to my benefit:

Continental offers unlimited complementary first class upgrades for their elite members in two manners.   The first is the EUA, which is an automated system that upgrades platinum members at 5 days out, gold members at 3 days out, and silver members at 1 day out.

The EUA only works if the elite member is on their own itinerary without any other passengers and only if their is availbility in “F” class at the time that the EUA runs its course.

The 2nd upgrade manner is the battlefield upgrade in which the gate agent manually processes upgrades by elite status ranking and fare purchased.  On Continental the gate agent will actually get disciplined if they send out a flight with empty first class seats if there were elite members in coach!

When I flew from Ontario, CA to Cleveland after Pesach I knew from Continental’s new mobile site that “ELE. D.” I was #1 on the battlefield upgrade list.  I also saw that first class was fully booked, but that one passenger hadn’t yet checked in.  After I settled into my exit-row seat I took a look at the pda site and noticed that I had been upgraded to seat 1F.  I waited until boarding was complete expecting to be pulled up to first class, but noone came.  So, I got a flight attendant’s attention and asked to please double-check with the gate agent who should be sitting in 1F.  I was settled in the comfy leather seat within 60 seconds!

It’s nice to see an airline truly empower the customer with such proprietary information in today’s day and age, and it’s one example of why Continental will survive the impending airline blood-bath…

Continental Strikes Back…Against USAirways?

Update: DEAD!

United filed a cheap Hawaii fare this morning from Continental’s hubs, and Continental has responded by filing a cheap fare from USAirways’ hubs.
Doesn’t make sense to me either, (preparing for a United/USAir merger?) but I’ll take it anyway!

Pittsburgh-Honolulu is $219+ RT
Philadelphia-Honolulu is $251+ RT
Charlotte-Honolulu is $261+ RT

Taxes will add about $45 depending on the routing.

All fares are now bookable for travel from 08/08 through 03/09. There is a 3 day minimum stay counting from time of departure. There seems to be good availability and all fares were available for the sample dates that I checked of 09/09/08-09/16/08 and 01/13/08-01/20/08 at continental.com

SMOKING HOT!!!! Newark Or Houston To/From Honolulu Or Kauai For $257+ RT On United!!!

Update: DEAD!

This deal was sent to all of our dansdeals.com facebook group members. Join the Dansdeals.com facebook group to receive similar alerts.

Try using the flexible search on Travelocity to find valid dates.
Valid for travel though 02/09.
Sample valid trips currently bookable on United.com:
Newark (EWR)-Kauai (LIH) from 09/02/08-09/09/08 for $272 including all taxes.
Houston (IAH)-Honolulu(HNL) from 01/20/09-01/27/09 for $287 including all taxes.

From Newark you should easily be able to get over 10K elite qualifying miles with this fare. You generally need to earn a minimum of 25K elite qualifying miles in a calender year to earn elite status.

If we’re lucky this will set off a response from Continental to set off a new, long-awaited round of hub-war fares to Hawaii! For you Chicago and DC folks-Stay tuned!

The Discussion Post: 2nd Edition.

Update: Once again you guys have completely overwhelmed this post! Check out the comments for an alternate solution…

Post stickied: Scroll down for new posts.

It’s obvious that Dansdeals readers have a lot to ask and even more to share with each other.

While a forum is the best setting for sharing info, they are extremely tough to get going and keep active.

When a simple post on a great credit card offer (5% auto rebate on gas+wireless purchases) can yield incredible info about traveling to Venice, it’s obvious that it should all be gathered in a somewhat better place.

So, here it is.

Feel free to ask about or just talk about what’s on your mind in this post.

I’ve added a new comment feature to the site in order to make the discussion post more viable. Just click on the reply arrow located after the timestamp on each comment to reply to a specific commenter. This will make a link in your comment back to the comment that you are replying to. Please try it out and tell me what you think of it!

I let the first edition of the discussion post run a bit too long (it had 246 comments when I locked it down!) so I’ll cut off this edition before it gets so unwieldy.

Like I said the first time around, I don’t know the answers to every question asked here, so please go ahead and join in the discussion if you do!

Please post all comments not directly related to a specific post in this discussion post.

AA: No More Free Domestic Checked Luggage For Non-Elites; Other Fees On The Rise.

AA has started off the next round of airline fees with a new $15 (each way) fee for the first checked bag in addition to the $25 (each way) fee for the 2nd checked bag.

AA/OneWorld elite members, full fare passengers, AAnytime AAward passengers, business/first class passengers, passengers on an international itinerary, and all traveling companions of any of these exempted members will continue to be allowed to check 2 free bags.

The new bag fee applies to tickets purchased on or after 06/15, regardless of the date of travel. In other words:
-If you bought an AA ticket before 05/12 you will get 2 free checked bags.
-If you buy an AA ticket on or after 05/12 but before 06/15 you will get 1 free checked bag.
-If you buy an AA ticket on or after 06/12 you will not get any free checked bags.

-Effective for tickets bought 05/21, AA also has matched the new, soon-to-be industry standard $150 domestic change fee.

-International change fees will now range from $150-$300, depending on the market.

-Phone reservation fees (for revenue and mileage tickets) are now $20.

-Airport reservation fees are now $30.

-Mileage ticket city changes and cancellations are now $150.

-Date changes on mileage tickets continue to be free.

Finally, AA said that they will retire 75 aircraft while reducing domestic capacity by 12%. Although AA currently has the industry’s best mileage ticket availability, these cuts may well change that.

SimpleTech 250GB Ultra-Portable 2.5″ External Hard Drive For $98.69 Shipped From Amazon!

A quick note on 2.5″ external hard drives:
The dirty little secret about these hard drives is that while they are unbelievably convenient for traveling and the like, they are in my opinion inherently unstable.

Every WD 2.5″ external hard drive that I have used has broken on me and lost its data, and I’m generally very careful with my electronics. (My awesome 12.1″ Dell 700M laptop has “powered” this website since I started it in Brazil some 3.5 years ago and has traveled the world many times over without a hitch)

Since I switched from WD’s 2.5″ hard drives to SimpleTech’s 2.5″ hard drives I have yet to have a problem, however I am now always careful to have everything backed up onto a standard 3.5″ external hard drive…

Bottom line: Buy 2.5″ external hard drives for their portability and convenience, not for backing up critical data!
