Say from 2000, did CO operate any P2P routes in the lower 48? I remember NW didnt have any and then they started some around 2003 or so from IND and then GRR and then there was always a focus on MKE. But in CO's case, I don't remember any. Basically, I'm talking about mainline, but if there were any regional routes, please include.

I don't know of any mainline P2P routes, but there were ~9 destinations operated by 3M as Continental Connection out of FLL (mostly serving the Bahamas) with B1900Ds - an interesting little focus city operation!
Radial engines don't leak oil, they are just marking their territory!

For a while (June-December 2009), Continental had a few weekly ERJ-145s on GPT-JAX and GPT-TPA (3x/week for each) that was on ExpressJet.
Continental was also starting a mini-focus city at LaGuardia right before September 11, with flights to BUF (mix of ERJ-135/145, 4x/day), GRR (2x ERJ-135/day), FLL (2x/day 737), MCO (2x/day 737), MSN (2x/day ERJ-135) and RIC (4x/day mix of 135/145), in addition to the IAH and CLE flying. Initial ramp up started in the Fall of 2000, with a second round of cities in February 2001, then 9/11 caused CO to pull these flights.

As others have said, they had some Florida routes. I did DL, NW, and CO's timetables for flight sim years ago (manually like a noob) so I have a pretty good idea of non-hub flights. You said lower 48 so I won't really mention the CO Micronesia routes or Hawaii routes. There may have been some LAX or JFK flights, but I'm not really sure. Doubt JFK since they had EWR
Poster did not specifically state in the 48 contiguous United States of America. He/she just said "lower 48." Maybe this is confusing. Especially for those in Hawaii which is South and West of the 48 contiguous United States, making the lower 48 the upper 48.
"He waited his whole damn life to take that flight. And as the plane crashed down he thought 'Well isn't this nice...'"
