 LOS ANGELES, Nov. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T and Continental

Airlines have announced that AT&T Fax Service is now available in Continental's President's Club lounges at Los Angeles International Airport.
 The lounge, located in Terminal 6 at LAX, is part of a nationwide AT&T trial to determine whether public fax service could become as vital to business travelers as the public phone.
 AT&T's free-standing public fax machines offer full-color, touch- sensitive screens with easy-to-follow directions. Faxes are sent directly to the receiver without an intermediary, allowing users to save time and protect the privacy of their documents.
 The machines also offer a broadcast feature, using AT&T Enchanced Fax Service, that allows users to send faxes to multiple locations. In addition, the machines can receive faxes and be used as a copier.
 All charges can be billed to the AT&T Calling Card, the AT&T Universal Card or most major credit cards. The cost to send or receive a fax is $2 per page domestically, $3 internationally; copying cost $2 for up to eight pages, $.25 per additional page.
 Currently AT&T Fax Service is available in Continental's President's Club lounges at Chicago O'Hare, Denver Stapleton, LaGuardia, Newark, Phoenix Sky Harbor, San Francisco and LAX Airports, with additional locations scheduled.
 "Offering our frequent travelers this new service is part of Continental's commitment to meet the needs of our customers, especially one as critical as the need to stay in touch," said Earl Quenzel, vice president, marketing programs, Continental Airlines.
 In a recent AT&T study, 63 percent of business travelers surveyed send faxes while away from their home or office. "Our new product will help them continue to do so from convenient locations, such as airports, as well as hotels, convention centers and truck stops," said Frank Simone, product manager, AT&T Fax Service.
 In addition to the Continental President's Club locations, the service also has been installed at the Greater Cincinnati International, Houston Intercontinental, Seattle-Tacoma International and New Orleans International Airports and a few Embassy Suites Hotels.
 Another offering for frequent travelers that AT&T introduced earlier this month is the AT&T Public Phone 2000. This new product gives travelers an array of communication and information services never before available from a pay phone, including a dataport for laptop computer use, an optional keyboard for accessing electronic mail or dial-up databases, foreign language dialing instructions, and weather and travel information services.
