As an ex-COn I find this wildly flattering. But I also totally disagree. Yes the united brand is ruined but frankly something new is needed. I don't think Calling ourselves Continental will fix anything.

Maybe we should buy the rights to Pan Am name? Lol
I believe the Pan Am brand has an owner. Regardless, Pan Am was the pinnacle of customer service; something United and Mr. Munoz don't seem to care about. I recently stated, (another tread) that a United attendant told me horror stories of how they treat customer food and drinks; particularly first class customers that appear "too uppity" because they can afford a first class ticket, or a woman was too well dressed, for the female attendants jealous mind. If only, Mr. Trippe and Pan Am could return, Mr. Munoz and is ill-operated company would be out of business. I'll never set foot on a United operated aircraft again.
Now, that would be epic!!! If UA changed to Pan Am, I bet 99.9% Of a.nutters would go crazy. I actually love the idea. It would be awesome if they also took Pan Am to levels of what they were in terms of service. I know, it will never happen, but it sure would be awesome!
Give it time. Another airline will be the next target and meme baby soon enough.
