I though Continental miles had no expiration.

They do expire "officially"
Unofficially they have never expired anyone's miles.

Officially CO miles expire, though not at all enforced.
EDIT: oops I see you beat me to it.

At what point do co miles expire "officially"? 18 months?

Why does it matter?  They don't expire for all intents and purposes.

With Co merging with United, they might take on United's policy and expire miles. Now with Delta coming out with this news, it may stop CO from doing so, (if they had such plans). So I guess it helps CO miles.
