  1. Good review of the Continental 10-k, and it prompted me to take a look at the original document. Even though they mentioned 11% increase in direct online ticket sales, and 26% of passenger revenue coming from the website, I couldn’t see total number of pax booking via the website – obviously a much higher number than 26% given their comments regarding internet being a low yield channel.
