More than a year after their merger, the two carriers are just one

Sometime around 2 a.m. this Saturday morning, the long-familiar name of Continental Airlines will fly no more. The Continental name has already been airbrushed off (or however planes get repainted these days) the aircraft themselves, but now it’s also coming off the merged United Continental’s (NYSE:UAL) reservations system and website. From this weekend on, the traveling world will see only United.

Having closed their $3.17 billion merger more than a year ago, the newly combined companies have been busy since then working to blend their operations into one, seamless, whole. Just how seamless, however, remains to be seen. And passengers have good reason to be wary of the changeover’s final steps this weekend.
