Disclaimer: This article is purely informational, and in no way represents a commercial relationship between Cancun-Discounts.com and United Airlines Inc, formerly known as Continental Airlines Inc.

The following information was accurate at the time it was written, but is no longer maintained or updated as the OnePass mileage program no longer exists.
Continental Airlines, until its merger with United Air Lines, maintained a frequent flyer program called Continental OnePass. Upon the completion of the merger of these two major airlines, Continental's OnePass program was merged into United's MileagePlus program in early 2012.
Serving 280 cities worldwide, Continental Airlines was the world's sixth largest airline. It was hooked up with SkyTeam, which gave it truly global reach. Its OnePass Frequent Flyer Program was a good one, due to the wide range of partner airlines. We were a member of OnePass, and used Continental Airlines regularly. It served Mexico and the Eastern US exceptionally well. Continental gave you many ways to earn their OnePass Frequent Flyer miles. It was also one of the only programs to give you flyer miles for cruises booked through many agencies. If you liked cruises, you may have wanted to consider the Continental Airlines OnePass program.
There were a lot of other great ways to pick up air miles along the way with Continental. They had a wide list of worldwide partners making international travel really easy, including giants Delta and Northwest. Of particular interest to Cancun travelers was AeroMexico which just gave you one more option to get to Cancun for FREE!

Continental had probably the best group of Telecom partners in the industry. AT&T gave you 10,000 bonus miles to sign up, plus gave you 5 miles for every minute you talked. MCI used to do this with American, and we've always used it. When you call internationally as much as we do, it really adds up! Plus, Cingular, Nextel, and T-Mobile all gave you thousands of bonus miles to use their cell phone service.
