Given all the current chaos at Canadian airports with US bound flights and no one telling us what constitutes a “Small Purse”, since that’s all we’re allowed to carry on the flights now, we’re considering an alternate route to Orlando for our trip in December 2010.
There is a small airline that flies out of our Island Airport here in Toronto that has flights to Newark. We were thinking of flying to Newark on Porter Airlines the afternoon before our Disney arrival, spending the night in a hotel near the Newark Airport and then switching to a Continental flight from Newark to Orlando. Continental has direct flights from Newark to Orlando. Has anyone ever flown with Continental and can speak to their experiences?
We’ve only ever flown Air Canada so don’t know much about Continental. Also this will be at the start of December, our travel dates are Nov 30 - Dec 8 2010.
This would be our first time on a US domestic flight. We’d be looking at doing the 6:45am or the 7:45am Continental flight out of Newark.
Thoughts/experiences with Continental Airlines? What are the flights like? What about the check in process etc.
