I think this is just for clerical purposes related to the renaming of the airline. All those flights are the same PMCO aircraft and routes - just with the UA code.
|Quoting DualQual (Reply 2):|
That is all PMCO equipment. It will still be CO crews and aircraft. This simply has to do with the assumption that a Single Operating Certificate will be granted and there will be (at least on paper) no more Continental Airlines.
|Quoting usairways85 (Reply 3):|
I think this is more of a formality. All these PMCO routes are still served by CO aircraft. So the routes will now longer be served by CO but rather now the newly merged UA.
I didn't mean anything else. If that will apply globally and SOC is expected on that date, we shall see.
One new thing that might become possible on that date forward is the ability to connect between all merged-UA flights at GRU
. Currently, a GIG
tag passenger may only choose between GRU
. In the future, it's expected to be possible for GRU
as well, just the SOC was missing.
