Re-regulation? No thanks! I'm pretty much fed up with our government anyway, but that's a thread for another day. When you bought your tickets you chose non-refundable ones, so by purchasing them you entered into a contract that stated you would pay for any change fees or fare differences to your itinerary. Sounds like they were nice to you and waived any fare differences. Continental is a very good airline and is doing what they all are doing, and that's just trying to break even. Next time buy the full fare ticket which includes your bags, tv, drinks, etc., it's usually a better deal. Unless you like the SW approach - if you can't take the bus, fly with us!
