"The Blue Skyway" flies again on Continental

One more airline adds a 'retrojet' to its fleet. Continental has recently taken delivery of a brand-new Boeing 737-900ER that's painted in 'The Blue Skyway' livery, in preparation for the airline's 75th anniversary on July 15. The paintjob was first used on Continental planes back in 1947. Here you can see it on a DC-7 back in the day, and much more recently on a shiny 737 (photo by Drewski2112).

Dear Sir/Madam,
We regret the delay in replying to your email.
As mentioned on our website on the purchase page, before you are directed on the payment gateway, we have the note which draws attention to this charge that some card issuing banks charge:
You are transacting on a website where the Merchant is based in India. In certain cases where the merchant is not based in the same country as the customer, your card issuing bank may charge an International Transaction Fee, over and above the transaction value. This fee is imposed by Visa/Master and passed on to the card holders by the card issuing bank. For more information you may please check with your bank on the clauses governing these additional foreign fees. This fee is in addition to your ticket fare charged and will be incorporated in your credit card statement. It is not charged or billed by Air India and hence will not be included in the Online Booking Confirmation email sent to you.

As this charge has not been made by Air India, we request you to liase with your card issuing bank for the same
