Flying Continental - Possibly

I have been looking at flying to Hartford from the UK in December and have a couple of questions.

On the outbound flight there would be a scheduled connection of 1hr 25 mins at EWR, would this be enough time to clear immigration and get to the next flight?

Also I was looking at flying business across the pond but when I search for this it comes up as Coach (R class). I can't find any mention of R class on Continentals website and was wondering if this is actually just a mistake.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey,


CO released R as mileage earning class from September 1st and is BF, not an economy fare.

Thanks for the reply. That's great news, just boils down to that connection time now.

The connection time should be fine usually. In business you can be out of the plane as one of the first, don't loiter too much but go straight ahead to the connection. Remember it will cost Continental a lot of money to accomodate you if you miss the connection so they wouldn't have sold the ticket in the first place it if a substantial part of their pax miss it.


nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

Isn't "R" classified as reward and you earn no miles if using a full reward ticket, or earn miles for purchased class if used reward miles for an upgrade?

Quoting IAHFLYR (Reply 4):

It will, I stand corrected, be changed as of September 20th and is then a mileage earning BF ticket. Source
