I've searched continental's website, but can't even find an email address except for technical issues or to add missing miles. I'm guessing that although I have chairman's preferred on usairways and that even though the flight is operated by us airways, that if the flight is booked under united (which seems to be the only way it shows up even though it says operated by us air), that I won't have status on that flight for upgrades, etc. Therefore, since this will be my new routing for the next 6 months, I would like to get status on united or continental rather quickly (it's a cross country flight). I was hoping either united or continental would status match to some level. Has anyone tried?
