When I was in San Diego the other day, I turned on the TV in the hotel just in time to see the last part of one of Continental's ads, which concluded with "Continental...now serving London's Heathrow Airport"
Did I miss something with the US-UK open skies policy in the past five days I've been gone, or is CO still trying to play their VS codeshare off as their own flights?

Please.....Continental does not fly to Heathrow on its own. It code shares with Virgin Atlantic from Newark,
JFK, Boston, Washington DC, and other Virgin gate-
ways. It purchases a block of seats on VS aircraft
and places its CO on the flight. Aircraft, crew, and
all handling is done by Virgin.
At Heathrow Airport, Continental has its desk for
customer service and handling issues next to the
counters for Virgin flights.
The two airlines also code-share on each other's
flights to Gatwick from Newark.

Adding on the AA@DFW's post AA flies the A300 from EWR-LHR flight 92... and i was curious as to what Blink 182 thinks about BA's international going to LHR and abandoning LGW... and i was told by a reliable source
that there cant be any DFW-LHR flights for some pact or something like that...

Dude, you need to get yourself checked out. Seriously. Your imagination has been running waaaaaaaay overtime.
I guess when i was flying non rev back from london and the Virgin 747 was looking full the Continental 777 that was in the adjacent gate that i almost flew back on was a figment of my imagaination

CO and DL would have got it except BA had cried foul and the idea was quickly pulled because both BA and VS wanted open skies on both sides of the pond. Since BM will be allowed next year to fly to the US I hope that either CO, TW, or DL will be the one of airlines to serve LHR.
