Definitely not trying to stir up trouble or having anyone choose sides, but I truly would like to know --- Is there some sore of labor beef or something with the flight attendants at Continental or was I just unfortunate? Took my first in nearly 35 years flight through IAH to TPA Saturday (mileage run) on Continental and not one flight attendant smiled even once. I'm a 2MM 1K flier on United and thought that those stews had an attitude, but man, there seems to be some very p.o.ed employees at Continental. Received pre-departure drinks on all 4 segments which was a 100% improvement over UAL, but once the meal service was over the galley curtains were pulled shut and no service, or even a walk by, until the 2 dings. I am not complaining as I have pretty much seen everything doing my BIS thing, but not a smile from anyone? I can handle this, as I mentioned, as all of my flights booked for next year are a combination on both carriers which will be one on 1/1/2011, and I am not flying to be entertained by anyone, but a little smile would seem appropriate, especially when all of them are lucky to even be employed in today's economy. Again, not looking for a fight, but is there a reason for this lack of genuine hospitality, or was this an adoration? By the way, ALL aircraft were awesome, especially the lie flats from TPA to IAH (upgraded on all 4 segments 1 week prior). I think I'm going to like the change, just not going to expect too much gratitude from anyone!
