Continental Airlines: Eliter Than Thou

When checking the status of his Continental Frequent Flyer miles, Upgrade Travel discovered that he had been subjugated to a cattle car with the rest of Continental’s social refuse, a tattoo brand of ‘Non-Elite’ scrawled across the skin of his metaphorical forearm.

Rejected terminology for Continental Airlines’ base level Frequent Flyers?

    When you actually fly Continental, they separate the “elites” from the “non-elites” with a separate line and a swanky carpet for the “elites.”

    I said to a check-in agent once, “I’ll be over here, in the non-elite/less-than/not good enough line.” She said, “Oh, it’s not like that!” and I said “Oh, but it is. The elites are physically separated from us less-thans.”

    Now, the Star-Belly Sneetches
    Had bellies with stars.
    The Plain-Belly Sneetches
    Had none upon thars.

    Those stars weren’t so big.
    They were really so small
    You might think such a thing
    wouldn’t matter at all.

    But, because they had stars,
    all the Star-Belly Sneetches
    Would brag, “We’re the best kind of Sneetch
    on the beaches.”

    With as many RJ’s as they fly, how can you tell?
