Not What I Want to See

When I go to the Houston Airport site:

Address Not Found
Firefox can't find the server at
The browser could not find the host server for the provided address.

    * Did you make a mistake when typing the domain? (e.g. "" instead of "")
    * Are you certain this domain address exists?  Its registration may have expired.
    * Are you unable to browse other sites?  Check your network connection and DNS server settings.
    * Is your computer or network protected by a firewall or proxy?  Incorrect settings can interfere with Web browsing.

When I go to the Continental Airlines site:


Continental is providing the option to re-schedule or re-route your travel once, without penalty, if you are ticketed to/from one of the cities listed below.* If your flight has been cancelled, a refund to the original form of payment can be requested. If you are traveling using a OnePass Reward, redeposit fees will be waived. Travel must be completed by the original validity dates specified on the ticket and changes must be confirmed in the same class of service as the original ticket. The value of the ticket may also be used towards purchasing another Continental Airlines ticket.

Please enter your confirmation number and last name in Manage Reservations or call Continental Airlines reservations at 800.525.0280 in the U.S. 50 states and Puerto Rico or one of Continental's other reservations numbers for assistance before your original departure date and time.

*You may only reschedule or reroute your travel once without penalty unless the specific incident below states otherwise.

Event Travel to/from/through Dates Additional Information
Hurricane Ike Continental hub: Houston, TX (IAH – Intercontinental)
Other airports: Austin, TX (AUS); Dallas/Fort Worth, TX (DFW); San Antonio, TX (SAT)
Original Travel Dates:
Sept. 11, 2008 — Sept. 21, 2008

Final Travel must be completed by:
End of Validity of ticket (one year from date of issue)

Change fees and/or additional fare collection will be waived if the rescheduled flights are booked in the original class of service to the same city pairs as originally ticketed and rescheduled travel commences on or before Sept. 28, 2008.

If the new travel commences after Sept. 28, 2008, change fees will be waived, however, additional fare collection will apply.

The airport site is down and Continental is offering flight changes for dates including our travel date.  I'm not sure what to make of this – I've never tried to travel after a storm before.  Tomorrow I'll have to brave the Continental reservations line, which I'm sure is insanely busy, to try to find out if our flights are likely to go ahead as scheduled.  My hope is that they'll be on schedule because they're international flights.  But who knows.
