Continental Announces New and Improved Web Check-In

Continental Airlines today
announced several new additions to its convenient online check-in service
for customers choosing to print their own boarding passes before they
arrive at the airport. Starting today, any customer using
check-in can print out a coupon for a free headset to use for viewing
Continental’s complimentary inflight entertainment. Further, customers are
now able to print a receipt for a ticket purchase along with the boarding
pass, matching the ease of using Continental’s acclaimed eService Center
kiosks at the airport. Checking in online gives customers everything they
need to get through security and head straight to the gate.
“We’re continuing to add features to our check-in, the
fastest and easiest way to check in for a Continental Airlines flight,” a
Continental spokesperson said. “ check-in allows customers
with or without bags to check in within thirty hours of departure, review
or change seat assignments or frequent flyer numbers, print boarding
passes and receipts, and now a coupon to enjoy our excellent selection of
inflight audio and visual programming—all from the comfort of home or
an office.”

Continental’s inflight entertainment service features a variety of music,
full-length films and the popular Continental Visions, an array of shorter
video segments including sitcoms, news and other informative shows.
Inflight entertainment is updated monthly on all 240 of Continental’s
video-equipped aircraft. In July, Continental will increase the number of
flights showing feature films by 10 percent.

The free headset offer applies to all customers checking in online that
have at least one of their flights scheduled on a video-equipped aircraft
with a flight duration of 1.5 hours or more.
