CO versus UA/WA in the 80's

Fri Sep 06, 2019 2:57 pm

Out of curiosity, how was CO perceived service wise in the 80's (before they went to worst, then rebounded to first, so to speak)? If flying LAX-HNL, was CO a better alternative to UA/WA? Thanks

Pre Lorenzo at the beginning of the 80’s Cal was still very good

After Lorenzo and through the rest of the ‘80’s we were abysmal

When Gordon Bethune and his management team took over in ‘94 Continental went back to it’s rightful place as the US airline with the very best customer service
