United Continental Holdings Awaits FAA Joint Certificate

Seven months after merging, United Airlines and Continental Airlines (now known as United Continental Holdings Inc.) have started the process to look like a unit by meshing kiosks and signs Wednesday.

It all starts at Chicago O’Hare airport, the main hub.

The merged company has all ready repainted a third of its fleet, adding Continental’s logo on the tail with United’s name on the fuselage.

Loyalty members of their respective airline will be able to combine their frequent-flier points.

United Continental still needs to create a joint website, deal with crew dispatching as well as unionized work groups.

Though merged, the airlines will have to run separately until the Federal Aviation Administration provides them with a joint certificate.  It’s expected at the end of the year.
