CONTINENTAL ASSISTS INCONVENIENCED PASSENGERS: ACCEPTING MOST TICKETS WITHOUT ENDORSEMENT AND INCREASING CAPACITY WHEN POSSIBLE

 HOUSTON, Nov. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Continental Airlines announced today that customers affected by American Airlines' strike can proceed directly to a Continental ticket counter with most tickets valid for travel within the domestic U.S. The airline is also including additional departures between Houston and Dallas to meet the increased demand for travel, and alleviate passenger inconvenience.
 "We understand that many passengers holding tickets on American are confused about how to proceed, so we have implemented a policy to accept most tickets at face-value directly from customers and without prior endorsement," said a spokesperson for Continental Airlines. "Only passengers holding international tickets on American will need an endorsement from the carrier."
 Continental serves many of the same destinations as American, including cities throughout the U.S., Mexico, Latin America, Europe, and the Caribbean.
 Frequent flyer reward tickets and certain industry tickets on American Airlines will not be accepted for travel. Other tickets will be accepted on a confirmed or stand-by basis depending on the type of ticket.
 For further information, American Airlines' ticketholders can call Continental directly at 800-525-0280, or visit a Continental ticketing facility.
