First off, Continental is not offering any more hot meals -- that means hot casserole dish services on any domestic service. Even on transcon flights, you will get a meal on tray, but instead of a hot dish, you will get a hot sandwich of some type. Except redeye flights, you will be offered a hot snack on all transcontinental flights.
will be considered a mid con flight... you will get a snack of some type, but I am not sure if you will get a hot sandwich or not, but you will get the cereal/banana/milk/muffin combo for sure... if you are lucky, you will get the transcon affair, which is a hot breakfast sandwich/fruit/yogurt combo.
to East Coast, you will not get any snack service in Y... only a cup of your beverage. On morning flights, they don't even bother with pretzels. I flew EWR
last year in Y, I only get a cup of cranberry juice -- not even a granola bar like other US airlines.
I hope it helps...
