    One of the more interesting benefits that United flyers gained after the Continental merger takeover was a very favorable policy of "inherited status" on award tickets. For the past three years, any award tickets issued inherited the status of the account holder.

These benefits included free checked bags, economy plus seating, premier check-in, and upgrades if the Premier also had the MileagePlus credit card -- even the boarding pass would show the status of the account holder!
