Continental extended to 2013 from 2011 the expiration of its Sabre global distribution agreement to coincide with merger partner United, a spokesperson confirmed.
With that, we've updated the Deadline Watch chart
to the best of our knowledge. For Continental’s Amadeus deal, the United spokesperson asked us to replace the previous (and definite) 2011 expiration date in the chart with a very indefinite "ND." The companies wouldn’t elaborate on what's up there. The expiration of both Continental's and United's agreements with Travelport, meanwhile, coincide in 2013.
