United, Continental seating improves reciprocal

Some United and Continental passengers can at the moment use their miles for seating upgrades on either airline.

The airlines said Tuesday that elite members of the United loyalty program can obtain domestic first-class upgrades and preferred seats on Continental flights, and Continental elite members can acquire unlimited domestic first-class and business-class upgrades on United flights.

The announcement was made by United Continental Holdings Inc., produced when the two airlines joint this month.

The company said the reciprocal preferred seating was among the first benefits for frequent fliers as the two airlines merge their loyalty programs, a process that is predictable to be complete in 2012.
