United-Continental Airlines Merger - Good For Portland

The recent United-Continental airlines merger will be a boon for PDX. Why? More non stop flights to the New York City airports, more Boeing 737 jet service up and down the west coast (Continental has surplus 737's), better service to Ft Lauderdale (Florida's cruise capitol) enhanced service to South America and Europe via the Houston International Airport (IAH)
The airport ticket counter will have better security and be more efficient. Look for the changes in early 2011.
