All Continental's Boeing 737 economy fleet offer a 3-3 economy layout and a seat pitch of 31 inches. Seats are 17.2 inches wide.
Service levels vary according to route, but expect to pay for alcoholic drinks. Food in some form is given out free on flights of more than two hours.
Similarly, not all of Continental's short-haul aircraft will offer in-flight entertainment. Only some 737-300s, -700s, -800s and -900s will offer any IFE system, depending on route.
Update March 9 2010: Continental has announced that is to charge for economy seats with extra legroom, giving its passengers the option to reserve the seats at check-in at a cost. For more on this see BusinessTraveller.com (link below).
