I am about to embark on my first Transatlantic trip on board a US carrier and looking through Continental's website - I was astonished to find that CO now charge for certain services on-board eg. alcohol and headsets?
Are these charges applied across their network since their website is a little vague about this. I am only interested as they seem to advice purchasing 'Continental Currency' for use on board. Will I need these for my glass of wine and/or headset for the crossing?

As long as I can remember, Continental has charged for inflight alcoholic beverages and headsets in economy. On international flights, the headsets are provided free of charge and you can keep them for future use.

Continental charges $5.00 or EUR4.00 for Alcoholic beverages, as most U.S carriers do at the moment. Although the headsets are free of charge and you are even allowed to keep the headset for a future (Domestic) Flight.
Again I think that CO is the best U.S airline to fly with.
