Continental's typical boarding sequence is:
  • "We'd like to open boarding to those passengers needing assistance or parents travelling with small children"
  • "We'd like to extend boarding to our First class passengers only. Once again, that's First Class passengers only at this time." (the latter added if there's an accumulation of people near the gate)
  • "We'd like to invite all of our Continental OnePass Elite members to board at this time and any passengers travelling in the first class cabin"
  • By row, starting at the back of the plane and moving forward
For smaller flights, they often lump 1st class and OnePass Elite together into the same group.

I'm sure I've missed some cricual detail to the speeches, like some mention of Northwest WorldPerks or something. I'm sure dbaker will pipe in with what I've missed.

How did you get seat 5A on a 737-800 if you aren't elite, anyway?

Instead of the first class part, I always hear, "Platinum, Gold, and Silver Elite members may board at any time."
