More and more, my regular flights to IAD, BWI and ORD are becoming Continental, not United flights. The Metal is Continental [737-800] and the crews still wear Continental uniforms. Moreover they think that they are different and their policies are still Continental. I usually fly 'A' fare and like to sit in the last row of the front cabin. The Continental crews ignore status and start at Row 1 taking orders and providing service. That makes me last and they have not the meal that I wanted several times. They made it clear to me that my Global Service Status would not get any special treatment from them. I asked for a meal from the rear cabin [something that I do regularly on UAL flights, and they told me that if they still had what I wanted I would have to pay for it. When I replied that I had always been able to substitute a meal from coach at no cost, I was told that it was not going to happen because Continental's policy did not allow it [even if United's did]. The attitude of the Continental Flight Crews has been brusk, unfriendly, and bordering on rude in these encounters. Is anyone else experiencing this kind of treatment????
