Final Continental Airlines Flights on March 2 and March 3 (CO 6)

This thread is devoted to the final landing of Continental Airlines coded flight. The final landing will be March 3 which will be flight 6 from NRT-IAH.

This is a historic landing as it closes the Continental History book, and opens a new one.

I think there will be COxxx flight numbers after March 3rd. And I believe the callsign Continental is already not used, as the airlines are operating under one FAA certificate.

Nope, UA Insider has already posted that CO 6 NRT to IAH will be the last flight to land with a CO designated flight number on March 3rd. After this flight there will be no more CO flight numbers.

Right! It will be quite sad to watch that final landing after flying CO for 16 years.

CO6 might be the last CO metal plane, but there might be others which take off as a CO codeshare and land after CO6.

Good to know, thanks. So the flights on CO.com after March 3rd with a CO number will just change to UAxxx?

That's correct except it will be in UA.com. To see what it will be like check pss.united.com

Really? And even if so, the codeshare numbers really don't matter for anything other than marketing. They certainly don't apply to operational events.

I'm actually more interested in what is happening with the flights to CCS. There was some issue back when they tried to kill the CO callsign and those flights. I don't know if it was fully resolved, though I assume it was.

Right the code share numbers don't count. I am interested as well especially since they had to cancel the flight a couple times. I believe it is resolved.

Hope the weather is good that day, then! If I didn't have to be somewhere else on 3/3, I might just have been crazy enough to be on this flight.

Somehow, being on the final CO departure PHX-CLE (a mid-con red eye) doesn't seem quite as appealing

Just wondering what would happen if the flight gets delayed or canceled? If the delay is long enough so it doesn't take off until after the changeover will it's flight number change? Hmmm, curious minds want to know.
