                                  PART I


ITEM 1.  BUSINESS.

Continental Airlines, Inc. (the "Company", the "Reorganized Company" or
"Continental") is a United States air carrier engaged in the business of
transporting passengers, cargo and mail.  Continental is the fifth largest
United States airline as measured by 1994 revenue passenger miles and,
together with its wholly owned subsidiary, Continental Express, Inc.
("Express"), and its 91.0%-owned subsidiary, Continental Micronesia, Inc.
("CMI"), serves more than 160 airports worldwide.  Internationally,
Continental flies to 54 destinations and offers additional connecting
service through alliances with foreign carriers.  Continental is one of the
leading airlines providing service to Mexico and Central America, serving
more destinations there than any other United States airline.  Through CMI,
the Company provides extensive service in the western Pacific.  The
Company's wholly owned subsidiary, System One Information Management, Inc.
("System One"), operates a travel agency computerized reservation system,
principally in the United States.  See Item 1.  "Business.  System One".

As used in this Form 10-K, the terms "Continental" and "Company" refer to
Continental Airlines, Inc. (or, as required by the context, its
predecessor) and, unless the context indicates otherwise, its subsidiaries.

Chapter 11 Reorganization

The Company reorganized under Chapter 11 of the federal bankruptcy code
effective April 27, 1993 (the "Reorganization"), after having filed for
protection on December 3, 1990.  Continental's filing for reorganization
was necessitated primarily by declines in revenue resulting from a
recessionary environment, extreme price competition and significantly
increased fuel prices resulting from the Persian Gulf War.

Pursuant to the Reorganization, Continental Airlines Holdings, Inc.
(together with its subsidiaries, "Holdings" or the "Predecessor Company"),
which had been the Company's parent, merged into the Company.  The
previously outstanding publicly held equity interests in Holdings were
cancelled and new stock in the Company was issued.  Also pursuant to the
Reorganization, a majority of the Company's equity was issued to Air
Partners, L.P. ("AP") and Air Canada ("AC"), in exchange for their
investments in the Company.  Additional shares of common stock were issued
to the Company's retirement plan, and a fixed number of shares of common
stock was issued to or for the benefit of prepetition creditors.  See Item
3.  "Legal Proceedings.  Plan of Reorganization".

During the Chapter 11 case, Continental (i) restructured substantial
amounts of secured aircraft debt and aircraft lease obligations,
significantly reducing its annual payments of principal, interest and rent,
(ii) retired 42 older jet aircraft and (iii) accelerated the scheduled
retirement during 1993, 1994 and 1995 of 52 additional older, Stage II
(noise level) aircraft.  Also, the Company resolved (largely on a non-cash
basis) significant claims and contingencies affecting the Company.  Such
claims and contingencies included the Company's liability to the Pension
Benefit Guaranty Corporation (the "PBGC") related to pension plans
previously maintained by Eastern Air Lines, Inc. ("Eastern") (the "PBGC
Settlement") and the Company's potential liability to Eastern (or its
creditors) as a result of certain transactions entered into with Eastern
prior to 1989.  Certain parties have appealed the disposition of their
claims in the Reorganization.  See Item 3.  "Legal Proceedings".  Pursuant
to the Reorganization, a substantial amount of unsecured prepetition
liabilities was converted to equity, and additional secured and priority
debt was restructured to extend payment dates and/or reduce the interest
charge.

Pursuant to the Reorganization, System One, which had been a subsidiary of
Holdings, was restructured as a wholly owned subsidiary of Continental, two
separate commuter airline subsidiaries were restructured as Express and
Continental's western Pacific operations were restructured by establishing
CMI.

Domestic Operations

Continental operates its domestic route system primarily through three hubs
in Newark, Houston and Cleveland.  Continental's hub system allows the
Company to transport passengers between a large number of destinations with
substantially more frequent service than if each route were served
directly.  The hub system also allows Continental to add service to a new
destination from a large number of cities using only one or a limited
number of aircraft.

Newark.  As of March 31, 1995, Continental operated 55.8% (181 departures)
of the total daily jet departures and, together with Express, accounted for
57.0% (277 departures) of all daily (jet and turboprop) departures from
Newark.  Considering the three major airports serving New York City
(Newark, LaGuardia and John F. Kennedy), Continental and Express accounted
for approximately 22.6% of all daily departures, while the next largest
carrier, USAir, Inc. ("USAir"), and its commuter affiliate accounted for
approximately 17.4% of all daily departures as of March 31, 1995.

Houston.  As of March 31, 1995, Continental operated 77.9% (255 departures)
of the daily jet departures and, together with Express, accounted for 79.2%
(352 departures) of all daily departures from Houston's Intercontinental
Airport.  Southwest Airlines Co. ("Southwest") also has a significant share
of the Houston market, primarily through Hobby Airport.  Considering both
Intercontinental and Hobby Airports, as of March 31, 1995, Continental
operated 58.2% and Southwest operated 21.6% of the daily jet departures
from Houston.

Cleveland.  As of March 31, 1995, Continental operated 54.8%
(105 departures) of all daily jet departures and, together with Express,
accounted for 60.3% (169 departures) of all daily departures from
Cleveland's Hopkins Airport ("Hopkins").  The next largest carrier, USAir,
and its commuter affiliate accounted for 9.3% of  all daily departures from
Hopkins as of March 31, 1995.

Denver.  During 1994, the Company significantly reduced operations in
Denver, resulting in the conversion of Denver from a hub to a spoke city. 
In August 1993, prior to management's decision to reduce operations in
Denver, Continental operated 165 daily jet departures and 110 daily
turboprop departures from Denver.  As of March 31, 1995, Continental
operated only 19 daily jet departures and had terminated all turboprop
operations at Denver.  Turboprop service is provided to a number of smaller
regional cities by an unaffiliated third party, G.P. Express Airlines, Inc.
("GP Express"), under a code-share agreement.  As a result of this
reduction of operations in Denver, aircraft were redeployed to other hubs
and to non-hub flying.  See Item 3.  "Legal Proceedings.  Denver
International Airport" and Item 7.  "Management's Discussion and Analysis
of Financial Condition and Results of Operations".

Greensboro.  As of March 31, 1995, Continental operated 56.3%
(57 departures) of all daily jet departures and, together with Express and
GP Express, accounted for 60.8% (90 departures) of all daily departures
from Greensboro's Piedmont Triad International Airport ("Piedmont"). 
Turboprop service is provided to a number of smaller regional cities by GP
Express under a code-share agreement.  The next largest carrier, USAir, and
its commuter affiliate accounted for 21.8% (34 departures) of all daily
departures from Piedmont as of March 31, 1995.

Continental Lite.  In 1994, Continental rapidly expanded "Continental Lite"
(a network of short-haul, no-frills, low-fare flights initially referred to
as Peanuts Flights) from 173 daily flights and 19 aircraft serving
14 cities in November 1993 to 1,000 daily flights and 114 aircraft serving
43 cities in September 1994.  The rapid growth of Continental Lite was
supplied by redeploying a substantial portion of Continental's capacity,
including aircraft made available by elimination of the Denver hub and by
deliveries of new aircraft under the Company's agreement with The Boeing
Company ("Boeing").  Continental Lite experienced operational problems in
connection with this rapid growth and was not profitable in 1994.  At its
peak, approximately 35% of Continental Lite flying consisted of point-to-
point, linear service not integrated with the Company's hubs ("linear
flying").  Linear flying proved to be significantly unprofitable and was
responsible for an estimated 70% of all Continental Lite system losses in
1994.  In 1995, the Company is substantially reducing its Continental Lite
operation.  See Item 7.  "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial
Condition and Results of Operations".

America West Airlines, Inc. ("America West").  As a limited partner in
AmWest Partners, L.P. ("AmWest"), Continental participated in the
acquisition by AmWest of a portion of the equity of reorganized America
West in connection with America West's emergence from bankruptcy, effective
August 25, 1994.  In the transaction, Continental paid $18.8 million for
approximately 4.1% of the equity interest and 17.1% of the voting power of
the reorganized America West.  Continental also entered into a series of
agreements with America West, including agreements related to code-sharing
and ground handling, which have created substantial benefits for both
airlines.

Each investor participating in the acquisition did so on individual terms;
Continental and certain other parties invested at the same per share price,
but at a higher price (approximately $9.36 per share as compared to
approximately $7.01 per share) than the price paid by Air Partners, II,
L.P., TPG Partners, L.P. and TPG Parallel I, L.P. (collectively, the "TPG
entities"), partnerships controlled by Mr. David Bonderman, Chairman of the
Board of Continental.  However, as between Continental and the TPG
entities, Continental is entitled to receive a 10.0% per year return on its
investment before the TPG entities receive any return and to recoup its
invested capital before the TPG entities recoup their capital.

International Operations and Foreign Carrier Alliances

International Operations.  Continental has extensive operations in the
western Pacific conducted by CMI, and has expanded its presence in Mexico
and Central and South America.  As measured by available seat miles, as of
March 31, 1995, approximately 25.5% of Continental's operations (including
CMI) were dedicated to international traffic.  As of March 31, 1995,
Continental operated seven departures a day to five cities in Europe, with
connecting service to additional cities through alliances with foreign
carriers.

Foreign Carrier Alliances.  Over the last decade, major United States
airlines have developed and expanded alliances with foreign air carriers,
generally involving adjacent terminal operations, coordinated flights and
joint marketing.  Continental currently has alliances with AC, Scandinavian
Airlines System ("SAS"), Transavia Airlines ("Transavia") and Alitalia
Airlines ("Alitalia") which management believes are important to
Continental's ability to compete as an international airline.  In April
1994, Continental entered into a strategic alliance with Alitalia pursuant
to a memorandum of understanding, which provided for a code-share agreement
and a framework for jointly developing new and competitive services between
the United States and Italy.  In addition, Continental and Alitalia entered
into a wet lease agreement in May 1994 providing for the sharing of
revenues and expenses associated with such new services.  Implementation of
the new alliance began on July 1, 1994, with the commencement of new
service between Newark and Rome.  The code-share agreement was given final
approval by both the United States and Italian governments in October 1994. 
New service between Newark/Milan and Mexico City/Houston/Rome is planned to
begin in mid 1995.

Continental Micronesia, Inc.

Continental has historically had a strong presence in the western Pacific,
based in part on operations conducted since 1976 under the name
"Continental/Air Micronesia".  CMI's operations include a hub operation
based on the neighboring islands of Guam and Saipan.  The Guam/Saipan hub
provides scheduled service to seven Japanese cities (more Japanese
destinations than any other United States carrier), Hong Kong, South Korea,
Taiwan, Indonesia, the Philippines and ten islands in the western Pacific. 
Effective April 15, 1995, CMI is adding service to Sydney, Australia.  In
1995, CMI also plans to add service to Cebu, Philippines, subject to
certain regulatory matters.

Pursuant to the Reorganization, Continental restructured its western
Pacific operations by establishing CMI.  Continental provides CMI with
pilots, aircraft and other essential services at a price intended to
approximate Continental's cost of providing the service.  CMI is separately
certificated as an airline by the United States Department of
Transportation (the "DOT"), and holds an operating license issued by the
United States Federal Aviation Administration (the "FAA") and foreign route
authority issued by the DOT.

The 9.0% minority interest in CMI is owned by United Micronesia Development
Association, Inc. ("UMDA"), a private company.  Under agreements entered
into in connection with the Reorganization, UMDA would have the right to
increase its ownership in CMI to just over 20% in the event any
participating employer in the Company's pension plans failed to make, or
Continental failed to adequately provide for, certain pension plan
payments.  CMI also pays UMDA a fee of approximately one percent of CMI's
gross revenues, as defined, which will continue until January 1, 2012. 
Prior to the establishment of CMI, Continental had conducted the western
Pacific operations itself under the name Continental/Air Micronesia and had
paid UMDA the one percent fee.

CMI's operations in the western Pacific have consistently provided greater
operating profit margins than Continental's overall operations.  Any
significant and sustained decrease in traffic to and from Guam and Saipan
could materially adversely affect the Company.  Because the majority of
CMI's traffic originates in Japan, its results of operations are
substantially affected by the Japanese economy and are impacted by changes
in the value of the yen as compared to the dollar.  During 1993 and 1994,
the yen generally appreciated against the dollar, resulting in an increase
in CMI's profitability, revenues and, to a lesser extent, expenses.

Continental Express

Continental's jet service at each of its domestic hub cities and at
Greensboro is coordinated with Express, which operates under the name
"Continental Express".  Express operates advanced new-generation turboprop
aircraft that average approximately five years of age and seat from 30 to
60 passengers.  As of March 31, 1995, Express served 23 destinations from
Houston, 17 from Newark, 16 from Cleveland and 2 from Greensboro.  In
general, Express flights are less than 200 miles in length and less than
90 minutes in duration.  Management believes the turboprop operations
complement Continental's jet operations by allowing more frequent service
to small cities than could be provided economically with jets and by
carrying traffic that connects onto Continental's jets.  In many cases,
Express (and Continental) compete for such connecting traffic with commuter
airlines owned by or affiliated with other major airlines operating out of
the same or other cities.

In May 1994, Express terminated substantially all of its unprofitable
Denver operations, which were taken over by GP Express, an unaffiliated
commuter airline operator.  Express has implemented cost-reduction
programs, including substantial workforce reductions.  In 1994, Continental
announced it was considering a possible private placement by Express of
less than 20% of the common stock of Express as well as a possible future
distribution by Continental to its stockholders of all or part of the stock
of Express held by Continental.  Continental has currently postponed
pursuing these transactions.

Business Strategy

Continental has developed a new strategic program, the Go Forward Plan,
designed to strengthen the Company's domestic hub operations, increase
revenues and cash flows, improve profitability by shrinking excess
capacity, and enhance customer service.  Since the Reorganization,
Continental has not been profitable.  In late 1993 and throughout 1994, the
Company significantly reduced its presence in Denver, which had
historically been unprofitable for the Company, and redeployed aircraft and
other resources to the eastern United States in connection with the
expansion of Continental Lite.  Demand for Continental Lite, particularly
in linear markets, proved insufficient to absorb the Company's excess
capacity, and Continental Lite was not profitable in 1994.  Overcapacity
worsened in the latter half of 1994 as Continental's fleet expanded due to
deliveries of new jet aircraft.

During the fourth quarter of 1994, the Company determined that a new
strategic plan was needed to return the Company to profitability and
strengthen its balance sheet.  The Go Forward Plan has four key strategic
components:  Fly to Win, Fund the Future, Make Reliability a Reality and
Working Together.

Fly to Win.  Continental intends to maximize efficiencies and revenues by:

- - - - Strengthening its domestic hub operations by adjusting frequencies and
  improving schedules.

- - - - Pricing fares commensurate with market demand and elasticity.

- - - - Reducing Continental Lite flying by approximately one-third, primarily in
  linear markets which, at Continental Lite's peak capacity in 1994,
  represented approximately 35% of the Continental Lite system but
  accounted for an estimated 70% of Continental Lite's 1994 losses.

- - - - Downgauging aircraft and reducing overall capacity by removing from
  service 24 less-efficient widebody aircraft and accelerating the
  retirement of 23 older Stage II narrowbody aircraft during 1995.

- - - - Modernizing its domestic fleet by placing in service 27 new, more
  efficient aircraft in 1995.

- - - - Improving customer service by returning Continental's frequent flyer
  program ("OnePass") to its 1993 terms.

- - - - Reducing staff (at all levels) by approximately 4,000 positions to match
  the reduction in capacity and to eliminate non-value added activities.

Fund the Future.  The Company is taking steps to improve liquidity and, in
the long term, de-leverage the balance sheet by:

- - - - Adjusting Continental's fleet plan by deferring certain aircraft
  deliveries, canceling options on aircraft deliveries and removing 24
  widebody aircraft and 30 narrowbody aircraft (23 of which are being
  retired on an accelerated schedule) from service in 1995.

- - - - Negotiating amendments to certain debt and lease agreements to reduce
  cash requirements in 1995 and 1996.

- - - - Evaluating the potential disposition of certain non-strategic assets.

See Item 7.  "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition
and Results of Operations.  Liquidity and Capital Commitments".

Make Reliability a Reality.  Continental has placed renewed emphasis on
reliability and has named two executives to improve its on-time
performance, baggage handling and customer satisfaction.  Employees will
have the opportunity to earn extra pay each month that the Company meets
certain on-time performance targets as measured by the DOT.  In order to
enhance consumer perception of Continental's reliability, consistency and
quality, the Company is completing the refurbishment of its terminal spaces
and fleet interiors and exteriors during the first half of 1995.  In
addition, the Company is installing new passenger in-flight
telecommunications and computer facilities on all jet aircraft and expects
that installation will be substantially completed by the end of 1995.

Working Together.  Senior management has instituted a new open-door policy
with its employees designed to improve the working environment and
encourage all employees to work together as a team to improve operational
performance and customer service.  In support of the new policy, senior
management has hosted hundreds of employees for informal get-togethers and
discussion sessions in the executive offices, and more of these sessions
are scheduled.  In addition, the Company has hired new senior executives
with successful records at profitable companies in the areas of pricing,
scheduling, distribution, human resources, airport services, law and
finance.

Continental's alliance with America West is producing further efficiencies
for the two carriers.  Task forces have been established to coordinate and
optimize benefits in the areas of code-sharing, frequent flyer programs,
maintenance procurement, station operations and information systems.

Employees

Labor costs are a significant variable that can substantially impact
airline results.  For the year 1994, labor costs constituted approximately
27.0% of total operating expenses.  While there can be no assurance that
Continental's generally good labor relations and high labor productivity
experienced in the past five years will continue, Continental's management
has established as a significant component of the Go Forward Plan the
preservation of good employee relations.

As of December 31, 1994, Continental had approximately 37,800 full-time
equivalent employees (including approximately 4,800 pilots, 6,400 flight
attendants, 4,900 mechanics,  100 dispatchers, 17,300 customer service
agents, reservations agents, ramp and other airport personnel and 4,300
management and clerical employees), approximately 29.8% of whom were
represented by unions.

The Company and the Independent Association of Continental Pilots ("IACP")
are negotiating an initial collective bargaining agreement for the pilots. 
Negotiations have progressed to mediated collective bargaining with the
National Mediation Board ("NMB") - a normal and usual part of the airline
labor negotiation process.  The Company is hopeful that a mutually
acceptable agreement can be reached without adverse employee work actions;
however, the ultimate outcome of the Company's negotiations with the IACP
is unknown at this time.

In 1992, Continental and its flight attendants entered into a collective
bargaining agreement with the International Association of Machinists and
Aerospace Workers ("IAM") that has been ratified by the Continental flight
attendants and becomes amendable in 1996.  In 1993, the NMB ruled that the
Express flight attendants are also represented by the IAM.  Negotiations
between Continental and the IAM have commenced, but the parties have not
yet reached an agreement.  The Company is hopeful that the parties can
reach an agreement without adverse employee work actions; however, the
ultimate outcome is unknown at this time.  CMI's flight attendants are also
represented by the IAM, but are covered under a separate four-year contract
that was signed in September 1992 and becomes amendable in September 1996.

Continental's dispatchers are represented by the Transport Workers Union
which also represents the dispatchers of Express.  CMI's dispatchers are
not represented by a union.

CMI's mechanics and mechanic-related employees are represented by the
International Brotherhood of Teamsters ("IBT") under a collective
bargaining agreement signed in April 1994 which becomes amendable in March
1997.  The IBT also represents CMI's agent classification employees located
on Guam whose collective bargaining agreement was also signed in April 1994
and becomes amendable in March 1997.

The other employees of Continental, Express and CMI are not represented by
unions and are not covered by collective bargaining agreements.  

The Company has taken several cost containment actions affecting employees. 
In 1992, Continental and its subsidiaries implemented across-the-board
salary and wage reductions for all employees, ranging from 5.0% of pay at
the lowest level of compensation to approximately 22.5% of base pay for
Continental's senior management.  The reductions, which lowered payroll
expense by approximately 10.0%, were restored in equal increments in
December 1992, April 1993, April 1994 and July 1994.  In January 1995,
Continental determined not to make any longevity pay increases and to
eliminate approximately 4,000 positions, including executive and management
positions, during 1995.

Fuel

Fuel costs constituted approximately 13.1% of total operating costs in
1994.  Consequently, changes in fuel costs can significantly affect
Continental's operating results.  Fuel prices continue to be susceptible to
political events.  In the event of any fuel supply shortage, higher fuel
prices or curtailment of scheduled service could result.  Continental
cannot predict near or long-term fuel prices.  Continental enters into
petroleum purchase option contracts to hedge a portion of its future
purchases against significant increases in the market price of jet fuel. 
In December 1994, approximately three months of jet fuel purchases were
hedged by these contracts.  In August 1993, the United States increased
taxes on domestic fuel, including aviation fuel, by  4.3 cents per gallon. 
Airlines are exempt from this tax increase until October 1, 1995.  When
implemented (based on approximately one billion gallons of fuel consumed
domestically in 1994), the fuel tax will increase Continental's annual
costs by approximately $43.9 million.  However, it is possible that the
fuel tax exemption will be extended beyond the October 1, 1995 deadline.

Competition and Marketing

The airline industry is highly competitive and susceptible to price
discounting.  Continental must compete with carriers having substantially
greater resources, as well as smaller carriers with lower cost structures. 
Overall industry profit margins have historically been low and in recent
years, have been substantially negative.  See Item 7.  "Management's
Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations". 


As is the case with other carriers, most tickets for travel on Continental
are sold by travel agents.  Travel agents generally receive commissions
measured by the price of tickets sold.  Accordingly, airlines compete not
only with respect to the price of tickets sold but also with respect to the
amount of commissions paid.  Airlines often pay additional commissions in
connection with special revenue programs.  On February 10, 1995, Delta
Airlines, Inc. ("Delta") became the first major airline to place a $50 cap
on travel agency commissions for round-trip tickets priced over $500. 
Other airlines, including Continental, imposed similar commission caps. 
However, due to Continental's low fare structure, this change in its
commissions policy is not expected to significantly impact operating
results.  See Item 3.  "Legal Proceedings.  Antitrust Proceedings".

Frequent Flyer Program

Each major airline has established a frequent flyer program designed to
encourage travel on that carrier.  Continental sponsors OnePass, which
allows passengers to earn mileage credits by flying Continental and certain
other carriers, including AC, Transavia, Alitalia, America West and SAS
(collectively, the "OnePass Partners"), and by using the services of
hotels, car rental firms and credit card companies participating in the
OnePass program.

Continental accrues the incremental cost associated with the earned flight
awards based on expected redemptions.  The incremental cost to transport a
passenger on a free trip includes the cost of incremental fuel, meals,
insurance and miscellaneous supplies and does not include any charge for
potential displacement of revenue passengers or costs for aircraft
ownership, maintenance, labor or overhead allocation.

Continental estimates that as of December 31, 1994 and 1993, the total
available awards under the OnePass program(based on accumulated mileage)
were 1.6 million and 2.5 million roundtrips, respectively, after
eliminating those accounts below the minimum level.  Continental estimates
that as of December 31, 1994 and 1993, 1.1 million and 1.5 million,
respectively, of such awards could be expected to be redeemed, and,
accordingly, Continental has recorded a liability with respect to such
awards.  The liability for expected redeemed flight awards decreased from
$63.6 million in 1993 to $42 million in 1994 primarily due to a change in
the Company's estimate of awards expected to be redeemed.  The difference
between the awards expected to be redeemed and the total awards available
is an estimate, based on historical data, of breakage for those customers
who do not redeem all or part of their mileage for travel awards or use
their awards with another OnePass Partner.

The number of awards used on Continental was approximately 590,000 and
580,000 roundtrips for the years 1994 and 1993, respectively.  Such awards
represented approximately 4.6% and 4.7% of Continental's total revenue
passenger miles for each year, respectively.  Due to the structure of the
program and the low level of redemptions as a percentage of total travel,
Continental believes that displacement of revenue passengers by passengers
using flight awards has historically been minimal.

Industry Regulation and Airport Access

Continental, CMI and Express operate under certificates of public
convenience and necessity issued by the DOT.  Such certificates may be
altered, amended, modified or suspended by the DOT after notice and hearing
if public convenience and necessity so require, or may be revoked for
intentional failure to comply with the terms and conditions of a
certificate.  The airlines are also regulated by the FAA, primarily in the
areas of flight operations, maintenance, ground facilities and other
technical matters.  Pursuant to these regulations, Continental has
established, and the FAA has approved, a maintenance program for each type
of aircraft operated by the Company that provides for the ongoing
maintenance of such aircraft, ranging from frequent routine inspections to
major overhauls.  Recently adopted regulations require phase-out of certain
aircraft and aging aircraft modifications.  Such types of regulations can
significantly increase costs and affect a carrier's ability to compete.

The DOT allows local airport authorities to implement procedures designed
to abate special noise problems, provided such procedures do not
unreasonably interfere with interstate or foreign commerce or the national
transportation system.  Certain airports, including the major airports at
Boston, Washington, D.C., Chicago, Los Angeles, San Diego and San
Francisco, have established airport restrictions to limit noise, including
restrictions on aircraft types to be used and limits on the number of
hourly or daily operations or the time of such operations.  In some
instances these restrictions have caused curtailments in services or
increases in operating costs and such restrictions could limit the ability
of Continental to expand its operations at the affected airports.  Local
authorities at other airports are considering adopting similar noise
regulations.

In the last several years, the FAA has issued a number of maintenance
directives and other regulations relating to, among other things,
retirement of older aircraft, collision avoidance systems, airborne
windshear avoidance systems, noise abatement and increased inspections and
maintenance procedures to be conducted on older aircraft.

On March 24, 1995, the FAA issued new regulations relating to commuter
safety.  The new regulations are not expected to have a significant impact
on the operations of Express.

Several airports have recently sought to increase substantially the rates
charged to airlines, and the ability of airlines to contest such increases
has been restricted by a recent decision of the United States Supreme
Court.  In addition, legislation which became effective June 1, 1992 allows
public airports to impose passenger facility charges of up to $3 per
departing or connecting passenger at such airports.  With certain
exceptions, these charges are passed on to the customers.

The FAA has designated John F. Kennedy, LaGuardia, O'Hare and Washington
National airports as "high density traffic airports" and has limited the
number of departure and arrival slots at those airports.  Currently, slots
at the high density traffic airports may be voluntarily sold or transferred
between the carriers.  The DOT has in the past reallocated slots to other
carriers and reserves the right to withdraw slots.  Various amendments to
the slot system, proposed from time to time by the FAA, members of Congress
and others, could, if adopted, significantly affect operations at the high
density traffic airports or expand slot controls to other airports. 
Certain of such proposals could restrict the number of flights, limit the
ownership transferability of slots, increase the risk of slot withdrawal,
or otherwise decrease the value of Continental's slots.  Continental cannot
predict whether any of these proposals will be adopted.

The award of international routes to United States carriers is regulated by
agreements between the United States and foreign governments.  The United
States has in the past generally followed the practice of encouraging
foreign governments to accept multiple carrier designation on foreign
routes, although certain countries have sought to limit the number of
carriers.  Foreign route authorities may become less valuable to the extent
that the United States and other countries adopt "open skies" policies
liberalizing entry on international routes.  Continental cannot predict
what laws and regulations will be adopted or their impact, but the impact
may be significant.  Certain regulatory changes, if proposed and adopted,
could materially adversely affect Continental, could cause defaults under
the Company's secured note agreements with General Electric Capital
Corporation and affiliates (collectively "GE Capital") and could require
charges to the Company's financial statements.

Many aspects of Continental's operations are subject to increasingly
stringent federal, state and local laws protecting the environment.  Future
regulatory developments could affect operations and increase operating
costs in the airline industry, including for Continental.

Additional laws and regulations have been proposed or are contemplated that
could significantly increase the cost of airline operations by, for
example, increasing fuel taxes, imposing additional requirements or
restrictions on operations or impairing access to capital markets. 
Continental cannot predict what laws and regulations will be adopted or
their impact, but the impact could be significant.

System One

System One develops, markets and distributes travel-related information
management products and services ("IMS") to the worldwide travel-related
services industry and owns, markets and distributes a computerized
reservation system ("CRS") to travel agencies, travel suppliers,
corporations and other customers.  System One has approximately a 15% share
of the travel agency business in the United States and has a substantial
market share in Latin America and in the Mid-Pacific/ Micronesia markets. 
The travel information supplied by the System One CRS to its subscribers
includes flight availability, fares, hotel accommodations, car rentals,
currency exchange rates and tourist information.  System One's IMS business
includes management and accounting systems for large travel agencies as
well as data consolidation and management products.  Approximately 12.3% of
System One's 1994 revenues were realized in connection with Continental
bookings.

In 1991, System One signed a 10-year systems management agreement with
Electronic Data Systems ("EDS").  The agreement provides for EDS to manage
the data processing and telecommunications facilities and services used by
System One.

In February and March 1995, System One borrowed additional funds from EDS
on the same terms as the existing loan agreement with EDS.  The proceeds
from these borrowings were used to repay a portion of the outstanding
amount due Continental from System One under an intercompany revolving
credit agreement.

Continental and System One are currently negotiating a series of
transactions whereby the existing systems management agreement between
System One and EDS would be terminated and a substantial portion of the
assets (including the travel agent subscriber base and IMS software) and
certain liabilities of System One would be transferred to a newly formed
limited liability company ("New S1") that would be owned equally by System
One (which will remain a wholly owned subsidiary of Continental), EDS and
AMADEUS, a European CRS.  Substantially all of System One's remaining
assets (including the CRS software) and liabilities would be transferred to
AMADEUS.  In addition to retaining a one-third interest in New S1, the
outstanding indebtedness of System One owed to each of EDS and Continental
would be repaid, and System One would receive cash and an equity interest
in AMADEUS.  New S1 would market the AMADEUS CRS and would continue to
develop, market and distribute travel-related IMS.  These transactions are
anticipated to close in the second quarter of 1995.

*Stage II (noise level) aircraft.

All of the aircraft and engines owned by Continental are subject to
mortgages.

Pursuant to the Company's Go Forward Plan, Continental will remove from
service 21 A300 aircraft, three 747 aircraft and 30 727 aircraft (23 of
which are being retired on an accelerated schedule) during 1995.  See Item
7.  "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and
Results of Operations.  Results of Operations.  Nonrecurring Charges".

The FAA has adopted rules pursuant to the Airport Noise and Capacity Act of
1990 that require a scheduled phase out of Stage II aircraft during the
1990's.  As a result of Continental's acquisition of a number of new
aircraft and the retirement of older Stage II aircraft in recent years,
approximately 60.0% of Continental's current jet fleet was composed of
Stage III aircraft at December 31, 1994.  The Company plans to either
retire or install hush kits on the remainder of its Stage II jet fleet
prior to the year 2000 in order to comply with such rules.

Continental has firm commitments to take delivery of 22 new 737 and five
new 757 aircraft in 1995, one new 757 aircraft in 1996 and 43 new jet
aircraft during the years 1998 through 2002.  The estimated aggregate cost
of these aircraft is approximately $3.4 billion.

As of December 31, 1994, Express operated a fleet of 76 aircraft, as
follows:

In late 1994, the Company returned to the lessor five Beech aircraft, sold
10 Beech aircraft and grounded its fleet of five Dash 7 aircraft.

In December 1994, Express contracted with Beech Acceptance Corporation
("Beech") for the purchase of 25 Beech 1900-D aircraft at an estimated
aggregate cost of $104 million, excluding price escalations.  Deliveries of
these aircraft are scheduled in 1995 and 1996. 

See Item 7.  "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition
and Results of Operations.  Liquidity and Capital Commitments" for
information regarding capital commitments and financing relating to
aircraft.

Facilities

Continental's principal facilities are located in Newark, Houston,
Cleveland, Guam, Los Angeles, Denver and Honolulu.  All such facilities, as
well as substantially all of Continental's other facilities, are leased on
a long-term, net rental basis, with the lessee responsible for maintenance,
taxes, insurance and other facility-related expenses and services.  In
certain locations, Continental owns hangars and other facilities on land
leased on a long-term basis, which facilities will become the property of
the lessor on termination of the lease.  At each of its hub cities and most
other locations, Continental's passenger and baggage handling space is
leased directly from the airport authority on varying terms dependent on
prevailing practice at each airport.

Denver's Stapleton Airport closed on February 28, 1995 in connection with
the opening of the new Denver International Airport ("DIA").  In 1992, the
Company agreed to lease (i) 20 gates at DIA for a period of five years from
the date DIA opened, (ii) four of such gates for an additional five years
and (iii) a substantial amount of operational space in connection with the
gates.  On April 10, 1995, the Company reached an agreement with the City
and County of Denver (the "City") and certain other parties to amend its
lease of facilities at DIA which, among other things, reduces to 10 the
number of gates (and reduces associated operational space) to be leased by
Continental.  See Item 3.  "Legal Proceedings.  Denver International
Airport" and Item 7.  "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial
Condition and Results of Operations.  Liquidity and Capital Commitments". 
The Company is negotiating with America West and Frontier Airlines
("Frontier") to sublease up to five of its 10 gates and certain operational
space.

Continental recently finished construction of certain new cargo facilities
at Los Angeles International Airport ("LAX").  Such facilities were
financed with the proceeds from the issuance of $25.3 million of tax-exempt
revenue bonds in December 1994.  Continental agreed to fund the principal
and interest payments related to such bonds through long-term lease
agreements.  The Company is attempting to sublease the majority of these
facilities.

On November 7, 1994, the Company announced its decision to close its
western United States scheduled maintenance facilities in Los Angeles and
Denver, eliminating approximately 1,640 maintenance positions.  Much of the
Company's scheduled maintenance needs are now performed by outside
suppliers who can support the Company's flight operations at locations more
convenient to its primary domestic routes in the eastern, central and
southern regions of the United States.

CMI operates a hub in Guam/Saipan, where the airport has undertaken a major
terminal expansion expected to be completed by 1997.  This expansion, while
increasing the number of gates available to CMI, will also increase the
cost of CMI's operations in Guam.

Continental also maintains administrative offices, airport and terminal
facilities, training facilities and other facilities related to the airline
business in the cities it serves.

As of December 31, 1994, Continental remains contingently liable on
$202.1 million of long-term lease obligations of USAir related to the East
End Terminal at LaGuardia.  In the event USAir defaults on such
obligations, Continental may be required to cure the default,  at which
time it would have the right to reoccupy the terminal.


ITEM 3.  LEGAL PROCEEDINGS.

Plan of Reorganization

The Company's Plan of Reorganization, which became effective on April 27,
1993, provides for the full payment of all allowed administrative and
priority claims.  Pursuant to the Plan of Reorganization, holders of
allowed general unsecured claims are entitled to participate in a
distribution of 1,900,000 shares of Class A common stock, 5,042,368 shares
of Class B common stock and $6,523,952 of cash and have no further claim
against the Company.  The Plan of Reorganization provided for this
distribution to be issued initially in trust to a distribution agent and
thereafter for distributions to be made from the trust from time to time as
disputed claims are resolved.  The distribution agent must reserve from
each partial distribution of stock or cash to allow a complete pro rata
distribution to be made to each holder of a disputed claim in the event
such claim is eventually allowed, unless the United States Bankruptcy Court
for the District of Delaware (the "Bankruptcy Court") establishes a lower
reserve or estimates the claim at a lesser amount for purposes of
distribution.  As of March 31, 1995, there remained 307,939 shares of
Class A common stock, 1,115,915 shares of Class B common stock, and
approximately $1 million of cash available for distribution.  The stock and
cash set aside for distribution to prepetition unsecured creditors was
fixed in the Plan of Reorganization and will not change as claims are
allowed.  However, as set forth below, a limited number of proceedings are
still pending in which prepetition creditors seek to impose additional
obligations on the Company.

Bankruptcy Appeals

Several parties appealed the Bankruptcy Court's April 16, 1993 order
confirming the Plan of Reorganization.

A group of bondholders appealed to have the United States District Court
for the District of Delaware (the "District Court") declare invalid the
Plan of Reorganization provisions relating to the allocation for payment of
unsecured creditors and the provisions releasing certain current and former
officers and directors of the Company and its former parent from the claims
of creditors.  If the bondholders successfully imposed liability upon such
officers and directors, the Company could be required to indemnify such
individuals.  The Company opposed the appeal on the merits and sought
dismissal of certain of the claims as moot due to the substantial
consummation of the Plan of Reorganization.  On March 16, 1995, the
District Court dismissed the appeal in part on grounds of mootness and
denied it in part on the merits.  The Company does not believe that the
foregoing matter will have a material adverse effect on the Company.

On December 3, 1990, Continental owned 77 aircraft and 81 spare engines (in
four collateral pools) securing debt evidenced by equipment trust
certificates.  The trustees for the four collateral pools moved in the
Bankruptcy Court for "adequate protection" payments under Sections 361 and
363 of the federal bankruptcy code for the Company's retention and use of
the aircraft and engines after December 3, 1990, including postpetition
claims for the alleged decline in market value of the aircraft and engines
after December 3, 1990 and claims for deterioration in the condition of the
aircraft and engines in the same period.  The Bankruptcy Court rejected the
adequate protection claims that alleged market value decline, and prior to
April 16, 1993, the Company settled all of the adequate protection claims
of the trustees from three of the four collateral pools.  The Company also
settled all adequate protection claims of the trustees for the fourth
collateral pool, except for their claim of approximately $117 million for
alleged market value decline of their pool of 29 aircraft and 81 additional
engines.  On April 16, 1993, the Bankruptcy Court rejected the market value
decline claims of the trustees for the fourth collateral pool in their
entirety and incorporated those findings into its order confirming the Plan
of Reorganization.  The trustees for the fourth collateral pool appealed
from these orders, but failed to obtain a stay pending appeal.  The Company
opposed these appeals on the merits and sought dismissal of the appeals on
the grounds they were made moot by the substantial consummation of the Plan
of Reorganization.  The District Court dismissed the appeals as moot, and
the trustees appealed to the Third Circuit Court of Appeals seeking review
of the District Court's mootness determination and the Bankruptcy Court's
finding on the merits.  Such appeal is still pending.  The Company does not
believe that the foregoing matter will have a material adverse effect on
the Company.

On July 19, 1994, the Bankruptcy Court approved a comprehensive settlement
resolving certain claims filed by the Air Line Pilots Association ("ALPA")
and former pilots of Eastern.  A group of separately represented Eastern
pilots (the "LPP Claimants") filed an appeal from an order disallowing the
integration of the Eastern pilots seniority list with Continental pilots
seniority list.  Continental filed a motion to dismiss as moot the appeals
brought by the LPP Claimants, on the grounds that only ALPA had standing
with regard to this proceeding and ALPA had previously withdrawn a similar
appeal.  The motion remains pending.  Other Eastern-related claimants,
including a group of 130 Eastern pilots who seek jobs and damages from
Continental based on alleged prepetition promises of employment with
Continental, have filed notices of appeal from the confirmation order.  The
Company is opposing these appeals on the merits and, in any event, if such
parties are successful on their claims, their recovery would be limited to
the fixed pools of Company common stock and cash provided for in the Plan
of Reorganization.

Antitrust Proceedings

In March 1994, the United States District Court for the Northern District
of Georgia approved the July 1992 settlement agreement between Continental
and class plaintiffs in the consolidated Domestic Air Transportation
Antitrust Litigation, in which Continental and other airlines were alleged
to have violated the federal antitrust laws by actions related to pricing. 
Under the settlement approved by the court, Continental provided
approximately $11 million in transportation certificates to class members,
in full settlement and release of all claims.  Pursuant to this agreement
and similar settlements involving other defendant airlines, transportation
certificates totaling $438 million were provided by Continental and other
airlines, which will be valid on any of the settling defendants and will
not be subject to interline reimbursement.

On December 21, 1992, the United States Department of Justice (the "DOJ")
commenced a civil action in the United States District Court for the
District of Columbia against Continental, seven other domestic airlines and
the Airline Tariff Publishing Company, alleging violations of Section 1 of
the Sherman Act by price fixing and maintenance of a "coordination
facilitation device".  The suit sought injunctive relief only.  All of the
airlines, including Continental, named in the suit have entered into a
consent decree with the DOJ that is intended to restrict, to some extent,
the airlines' pricing practices.  This consent decree was approved by the
court on August 10, 1994.

Continental and other airlines were the subjects of a civil investigation
conducted during 1990-1992 by the Attorney General of the State of Florida
and, separately, of a multistate civil investigation that was begun in
December 1992 by the Attorneys General of several other states, including
Colorado, Connecticut, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Utah and Washington. 
The investigations sought to determine if the airlines had violated federal
or analogous state laws with respect to pricing or bidding concerning
government air travel.  On October 11, 1994, Continental, together with
other airlines, entered into a Settlement Agreement with several states to
settle the claims by the 50 states of price fixing.  The Settlement
Agreement requires the airlines to provide a 10% discount off published
domestic fares for eligible government travel during a period no greater
than 18 months.  To implement the Settlement Agreement, on November 10,
1994, the State Attorneys General filed a class action complaint against
Continental and the other airlines in the United States District Court for
the District of Columbia, along with a motion for preliminary approval of
the Settlement Agreement.  On December 8, 1994, the District Court issued a
preliminary order approving the Settlement Agreement.  Final approval of
the Settlement Agreement is still pending.  The Company does not believe
that the foregoing matter will have a material adverse effect on the
Company.

On February 9, 1995, Delta  imposed dollar limits on the base commissions
it would pay to travel agents on domestic airline tickets.  Shortly
thereafter, other airlines, including Continental, imposed similar dollar
limits on their respective commissions.  In February and March of 1995,
Continental and six other major United States airlines were sued in a
number of putative class actions, including In re Airline Travel Agents
Antitrust Litigation in the United States District Court for the District
of Minnesota, in which various travel agents allege that Continental and
the other defendants combined and conspired in unreasonable restraint of
trade and commerce in violation of applicable antitrust laws.  The
plaintiffs also allege that the defendant airlines unlawfully fixed,
lowered, maintained and stabilized the commissions paid to United States
travel agents.  Plaintiffs seek injunctive relief, treble damages,
attorneys fees and related costs.  Continental is in the process of
reviewing the specific allegations in light of the pertinent facts and
commencing the preparation of its defense.  The Company does not believe
that the foregoing matter will have a material adverse effect on the
Company.

Denver International Airport

In 1992, the Company agreed to lease (i) 20 gates at DIA for a period of
five years from the date DIA opened, (ii) four of such gates for an
additional five years and (iii) a substantial amount of operational space
in connection with the gates and for the terms set forth in the agreement. 
During 1994, the Company significantly reduced its Denver operations.  The
City filed a complaint on February 22, 1995 against the Company in the
United States District Court for the District of Colorado seeking a
determination that the Company materially breached and repudiated the lease
and a March 1994 agreement to pay certain costs associated with the delays
in opening DIA.  In addition, the City sought a judgment declaring the
City's rights and the Company's obligations and the award of an injunction
that the Company perform such obligations.  The City also sought attorneys
fees and costs relating to its suit.  The Company believes it has defenses
against the City, as well as claims against the City that justify
rescission of the lease or, if rescission is not awarded by the court, a
substantial reduction in the Company's obligations thereunder.

The Company, the City and certain other parties have entered into an
agreement ("Settlement") that was approved by the Denver City Council on
April 10, 1995.  The Settlement provides for the release of certain claims
and the settlement of certain litigation filed by the City against the
Company and reduces (i) the full term of the lease to five years, subject
to certain rights of renewal granted to Continental, (ii) the number of
gates leased from 20 to 10, (iii) the amount of leased operational and
other space by approximately 70%.  The reduced gates and operational space
exceed Continental's current needs at the airport, and the Company is
negotiating with America West and Frontier to sublease up to five of its
remaining gates and certain operational space.  The Company will attempt to
sublease additional facilities and operational space as well.  To the
extent Continental is able to sublease any of its gates and operational
space, its costs under the lease would be reduced.  

The Settlement may still be challenged by certain parties, including by
other air carriers, and the Company cannot predict what the outcome of any
such challenge would be.  Certain air carriers have taken the position that
an insufficient number of carriers have executed the Settlement.  Failure
to implement the Settlement could reduce or eliminate the Company's
estimated savings at DIA.

Environmental Proceedings

The Company (including its predecessors) has been identified by the United
States Environmental Protection Agency ("EPA") as a potentially responsible
party at three Superfund sites.  At each site, the Company's potential
responsibility is premised on allegations that the Company generated waste
disposed of at such site.  The Company believes that, although applicable
case law is evolving and some cases may be interpreted to the contrary, any
claim of liability associated with these sites was discharged by
confirmation of the Company's Plan of Reorganization, principally because
the Company's exposure at each site is based on alleged prepetition offsite
disposal known as of the date of confirmation.  Even if the claims were not
discharged, on the basis of currently available information, the Company
believes that its potential liability for a share of the cost to remedy
each site (to the extent the Company is found to have liability) is not
material; however, the Company has not been designated a "de minimis"
contributor at any of such sites by the EPA.  The Company does not believe
that the foregoing matters will have a material adverse effect on the
Company.  The Company may become involved in other environmental
proceedings, including the investigation and remediation of environmental
contamination at properties or waste disposal sites used or previously used
by the Company.

General

Various other claims and lawsuits against the Company are pending, which
are of the type reasonably foreseeable in view of the nature of the
Company's business.  The Company cannot at this time reasonably estimate
the possible loss or range of loss that could be experienced if any of the
claims were successful.  Typically, such claims and lawsuits are covered by
insurance.  The Company does not believes that the foregoing matters will
have a material adverse effect on the Company.

ITEM 5.  MARKET FOR REGISTRANT'S COMMON EQUITY AND RELATED STOCKHOLDER
MATTERS.

Continental's Class A and Class B common stock began trading on the New
York Stock Exchange on a when-issued basis on July 14, 1993 and commenced
trading on a regular-way basis on September 2, 1993, following the initial
distribution of stock to the Company's prepetition creditors.  On
December 14, 1993, the Company sold 8,086,579 shares of Class B common
stock in an underwritten public offering.  Prior to that time, there had
been limited trading volume in the Company's common stock.

The following table gives the high and low sales prices for the stocks as
reported on the New York Stock Exchange for each quarterly period
subsequent to July 1993.

The stock of Holdings that was cancelled in the Reorganization was publicly
traded prior to April 28, 1993.  Information regarding the price range of
such pre-reorganization trading is not comparable with data provided for
the Class A common stock or the Class B common stock and is not included in
this Form 10-K.

As of March 31, 1995, there were approximately 5,100 and 5,900 holders of
record of Continental's Class A and Class B common stock, respectively.

The Company has not paid dividends on its common stock.  The Company
anticipates that no dividends on its common stock will be declared in the
foreseeable future, and that earnings, if any, will be retained for the
development of the Company's business.  The Company's loan agreements with
GE Capital prohibit the Company from paying dividends to common
stockholders until February 28, 1997, restrict the subsequent payment of
dividends to common stockholders to a percentage of eligible net income (as
defined) and require CMI to maintain certain minimum cash balances and net
worth levels, which effectively restrict the amount of cash available to
Continental from CMI.

The Company's certificate of incorporation provides that no shares of
capital stock may be voted by or at the direction of persons who are not
United States citizens unless such shares are registered on a separate
stock record.  The Company's bylaws further provide that no shares will be
registered on such separate stock record if the amount so registered would
exceed United States foreign ownership restrictions.  United States law
currently requires that no more than 25% of the voting stock of the Company
(or any other domestic airline) may be owned directly or indirectly by
persons who are not citizens of the United States.  Because AC owns
approximately 23.9% of the voting power of the Company's common stock and
shares of common stock owned by AC have priority over shares held by other
foreign holders, the number of shares that may be voted by other foreign
holders is very limited.

ITEM 6.  SELECTED FINANCIAL DATA.

The following table sets forth certain consolidated financial data of (i) the Reorganized Company
at December 31, 1994 and 1993 and for the year ended December 31, 1994 and the period April 28,
1993 through December 31, 1993 and (ii) the Predecessor Company, for the period January 1, 1993
through April 27, 1993 and as of and for the three years ended December 31, 1992 (in millions,
except per share data).

Because consolidated Continental (as reorganized) includes System One and other businesses that
had been consolidated with Holdings prior to April 28, 1993 (but not with pre-reorganization
Continental), the discussion herein generally refers to Holdings' consolidated financial
statements for periods prior to April 28, 1993.  As a result of the adoption of fresh start
reporting in accordance with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants' Statement of
Position 90-7 -"Financial Reporting by Entities in Reorganization Under the Bankruptcy Code"
("SOP 90-7") upon consummation of the Plan of Reorganization on April 27, 1993, the consolidated
financial statements of the Predecessor Company and the Reorganized Company have not been
prepared on a consistent basis of accounting and are separated by a vertical black line.

ITEM 7.  MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND
         RESULTS OF OPERATIONS.

Continental is the successor to Continental Airlines Holdings, Inc. and
Continental Airlines, Inc.  On December 3, 1990, Continental and Holdings
and all their wholly owned domestic subsidiaries filed voluntary petitions
to reorganize under Chapter 11 of the federal bankruptcy code.  The
companies' consolidated Plan of Reorganization was confirmed on April 16,
1993 and became effective on April 27, 1993.  On such date, Holdings merged
with and into Continental.  System One, which had been a subsidiary of
Holdings, was reorganized as a subsidiary of Continental.  Because
consolidated Continental (as reorganized) includes System One and other
businesses that had been consolidated with Holdings for periods through
April 27, 1993 (but not with pre-reorganization Continental), the
discussion herein generally refers to Holdings' consolidated financial
statements for periods through April 27, 1993.

On April 27, 1993, the Company adopted fresh start reporting in accordance
with SOP 90-7, which resulted in adjustment of the Company's common
stockholders' equity and the carrying values of assets and liabilities. 
The fresh start reporting adjustments, primarily related to the adjustment
of the Company's assets and liabilities to fair market values, have also
affected the Company's statements of operations.  The more significant
adjustments related to increased amortization expense relating to routes,
gates and slots and reorganization value in excess of amounts allocable to
identifiable assets; reduced aircraft rent expense; and increased interest
expense.

Adverse Industry Conditions and Competition

The Company has experienced significant losses in the last five fiscal
years.  The Company's viability is dependent upon its ability to achieve
and sustain profitable results of operations and thereby obtain access to
external capital sources.  During the fourth quarter of 1994, the Company
recorded a nonrecurring charge of approximately $446.8 million.  See
"Results of Operations.  Nonrecurring Charges".

The airline industry is highly competitive and susceptible to price
discounting, and Continental must compete with carriers having
substantially greater resources, as well as smaller carriers with lower
cost structures.  Overall industry profit margins have historically been
low and in recent years, have been substantially negative.  Profit levels
are highly sensitive to changes in fuel costs, changes in average yield
(fare levels) and changes in passenger demand.  Passenger demand and yield
have been affected by, among other things, the general state of the economy
and fare actions taken by Continental or its competitors.

In addition, a number of new carriers have entered the industry, typically
with low cost structures.  In some cases, the new entrants have initiated
or triggered further price discounting.  Aircraft, skilled labor and gates
at most airports continue to be available to start-up carriers, and
additional entrepreneurs have indicated that they intend to enter the
airline business.  Although management believes Continental may be better
able than several of its major competitors to compete with the fares
offered by start-up carriers because of Continental's lower cost structure,
the entry of new carriers on many of Continental's routes (as well as
increased competition from established carriers) could negatively impact
Continental's results of operations.

Airline Costs

Management believes that the Company's costs will be affected in 1995 by
(i) the full-year impact of the 1994 wage restorations, (ii) higher
aircraft rental expense as new aircraft are delivered, (iii) changes in the
costs of materials and services (in particular, the cost of fuel, which can
fluctuate significantly in response to global market conditions), (iv)
changes in governmental regulations and taxes affecting air transportation
and the costs charged for airport access, (v) changes in the Company's
fleet and related capacity and (vi) the Company's continuing efforts to
reduce costs throughout its operations.

Management believes that maintaining a cost advantage is crucial to the
Company's business strategy, and Continental is pursuing aggressive cost
reduction objectives in virtually all aspects of its operations.

Fuel costs constituted approximately 13.1% of Continental's operating costs
in 1994 and, although Continental has consistently sought to hedge its
short to intermediate term exposure against severe spikes in crude oil
prices, future price changes could materially affect Continental's results
of operations.  See Item 1.  "Business.  Fuel".

In the last several years, the FAA has issued a number of maintenance
directives and other regulations relating to, among other things,
retirement of older aircraft, collision avoidance systems, airborne
windshear avoidance systems, noise abatement and increased inspections and
maintenance procedures to be conducted on older aircraft.  These regulatory
actions have imposed, and may in the future impose further, material
unanticipated costs upon the Company and other airlines.

Other

The Company had, as of December 31, 1994, deferred tax assets aggregating
approximately $1.6 billion, including approximately $1.1 billion of net
operating loss carryforwards.  The Company recorded a valuation allowance
of $844.2 million against such assets as of December 31, 1994.  Realization
of a substantial portion of the Company's remaining net operating loss
carryforwards will require the completion during the next three years of
transactions resulting in recognition of built-in gains for federal income
tax purposes.  Although the Company currently intends to consummate one or
more such transactions, in the event the Company were to determine in the
future that no such transactions will be completed, an adjustment to the
deferred tax liability of up to approximately $194 million would be charged
to income in the period such determination was made.

Many aspects of Continental's operations are also subject to increasingly
stringent federal, state and local laws protecting the environment.
Continental has been named as a potentially responsible party at three
cleanup sites which have been designated as Superfund Sites.  At sites
where EPA has commenced remedial litigation, potential liability is joint
and several.  Continental's alleged volumetric contributions at the sites
are minimal.  The Company does not believe that the foregoing matters will
have a material adverse effect on the Company.

Results of Operations

The following discussion provides an analysis of the Company's results of
operations and reasons for material changes therein for the three years
ended December 31, 1994.  The Company's results of operations for the
periods subsequent to April 27, 1993 have not been prepared on a basis of
accounting consistent with its predecessor's results of operations for
periods prior to April 28, 1993 due to the implementation of fresh start
reporting upon the Company's emergence from bankruptcy.  Financial
information for 1993 is derived by combining the results of operations of
the Company for the period April 28, 1993 through December 31, 1993 with
those of Holdings for the period January 1, 1993 through April 27, 1993.

Overview of 1994.  Continental's 1994 loss before nonrecurring charges was
$166.5 million, or $6.61 per common share (primary and fully diluted).  The
1994 net loss of $613.3 million, or $23.76 per common share (primary and
fully diluted), included nonrecurring charges of approximately
$446.8 million, or $17.15 per common share (primary and fully diluted). 
See "Nonrecurring Charges" below.  The nonrecurring charges and losses in
1994 were caused primarily by major operating changes implemented by
Continental during the year and by a late 1994 build-up of excess fleet and
related operating capacity that the Company was unable to deploy
profitably.  Continental's Go Forward Plan, a new, multi-faceted strategy,
is designed to redirect and improve the Company's operations, shrink excess
capacity, improve liquidity and achieve profitability.  See Item 1. 
"Business.  Business Strategy".  

Reduction in Western United States Operations.  During 1994, Continental
greatly reduced its operations in the western United States.  The Company
eliminated its unprofitable Denver hub operation, cutting daily jet
departures from 165 in August 1993, to 86 in July 1994, 59 in September
1994 and 19 at March 31, 1995.  Beginning in May 1994, Express also
terminated all Denver turboprop operations.  In November 1994, Continental
announced its decision to close its western United States heavy maintenance
facilities in Los Angeles and Denver, eliminating approximately 1,640
maintenance positions.  

Continental Lite.  In 1994, Continental rapidly expanded Continental Lite
(a network of short-haul, no-frills, low-fare flights initially referred to
as Peanuts Flights), from 173 daily flights and 19 aircraft serving 14
cities in November 1993 to 1,000 daily flights and 114 aircraft serving 43
cities in September 1994.  The rapid growth of Continental Lite was
supplied by redeploying a substantial portion of Continental's capacity,
including aircraft made available by elimination of the Denver hub and by
deliveries of new aircraft under the Company's agreement with Boeing. 
Continental Lite experienced operational problems in connection with this
rapid growth and was not profitable in 1994.  At its peak, approximately
35% of Continental Lite flying consisted of point-to-point, linear service
not integrated with the Company's hubs.  Linear flying proved to be
significantly unprofitable and was responsible for an estimated 70% of all
Continental Lite system losses in 1994.  As part of its Go Forward Plan,
the Company is substantially reducing Continental Lite operations by
redeploying aircraft out of Continental Lite to replace less efficient,
larger aircraft being retired from long-haul service, and implementing
other changes intended to improve profitability.

Express.  Management has implemented strategies designed to improve the
performance of Express, which experienced losses in 1994.  In addition to
terminating its significantly unprofitable Denver operations, Express
implemented cost-reduction programs, including substantial workforce
reductions, and has entered into an agreement to acquire 25 new,
operationally efficient, 19-seat turboprop aircraft from Beech Acceptance
Corporation.  Fourth quarter results for Express were adversely affected by
an FAA Airworthiness Directive, which prohibited all airlines, including
Express, from flying ATR-42 and ATR-72 aircraft during atmospheric icing
conditions.  The Airworthiness Directive was effective December 9, 1994
through January 13, 1995.  The FAA may issue further Airworthiness
Directives with respect to the ATR aircraft and it is not possible to
predict the effect, if any, that future directives or other regulatory
actions may have on the use of such aircraft in certain weather conditions.

International.  CMI achieved significant profit growth in 1994 and
continued to generate operating profit margins greater than those of the
rest of the Company.  The increase in CMI's profits during 1994 reflected
improvement in the Japanese economy, continued appreciation of the Japanese
yen against the dollar (which increased CMI's dollar revenues and, to a
lesser extent, expenses), the severe typhoons and an earthquake at Guam
that adversely affected 1993 results, and continued growth in air traffic
demand in CMI's markets.  Continental also expanded its presence in Europe
and South America in 1994 and is one of the leading airlines providing
service to Mexico and Central America, serving more destinations there than
any other United States airline.

Nonrecurring Charges.  During the fourth quarter of 1994, the Company
recorded a nonrecurring charge of approximately $446.8 million associated
primarily with (i) the planned early retirement of certain aircraft and
(ii) closed or underutilized airport and maintenance facilities and other
assets.

Approximately $278 million of the nonrecurring charge was associated with
the planned early retirement during 1995 of 24 widebody jet aircraft (21
Airbus A300s and three Boeing 747s), 23 narrowbody Boeing 727 jet aircraft
and five Dash 7 turboprop aircraft, including a provision for the disposal
of the related inventory.  All of these aircraft (except for two owned
Airbus A300 aircraft) have remaining lease obligations beyond the planned
retirement dates for such aircraft.  The $278 million charge represents the
Company's best estimate of the expected loss based upon, among other
things, the anticipated resolution of negotiations with certain lessors as
well as anticipated sublease rental income of certain aircraft and engines. 
To the extent the actual resolution of the negotiations, actual sublease
rental income or other events or amounts vary from the Company's estimates,
the actual charge could be different from the amount estimated.

Approximately $168.8 million of the nonrecurring charge was associated with
the closure of the LAX maintenance facility, underutilized airport
facilities and other assets (primarily associated with DIA).  This portion
of the charge relates to the Company's contractual obligations under the
related lease agreements and the write-off of related leasehold
improvements, less an estimated amount for sublease rental income. 
However, should actual sublease rental income be different from the
Company's estimates, the actual charge could be different from the amount
estimated.

Approximately $324.2 million of the nonrecurring charge represents an
actual cash outlay to be incurred over the remaining lease terms (of from
one to 15 years) and approximately $122.6 million represents a noncash
charge associated with a write-down of certain assets (principally
inventory and flight equipment) to expected net realizable value. 
Continental expects to finance the cash outlays primarily with internally
generated funds.

Comparison of 1994 to 1993.  The Company recorded a consolidated loss
before nonrecurring charges of $166.5 million for the year ended
December 31, 1994 as compared to a consolidated loss before extraordinary
gain of $1 billion for the year ended December 31, 1993.  The Company's net
loss in 1994 included nonrecurring charges of approximately $446.8 million. 
The Company's net income in 1993 included an extraordinary gain of
$3.6 billion primarily related to the discharge of prepetition debt
obligations in the Reorganization.

Passenger revenues of $5 billion in 1994 decreased 1.6%, $79.4 million,
from 1993 due primarily to a 1.7% decrease in Continental's jet revenue
passenger miles resulting from a 1.7% decrease in available seat miles. 
Such decrease was partially offset by a 0.8% increase in jet yields.

Cargo, mail and other revenues decreased by 2.8%, $18.3 million, from 1993
to 1994 primarily as a result of Continental's termination of service to
Australia and New Zealand in October 1993 and poor weather in the eastern
United States in the first quarter of 1994.

Wages, salaries and related costs increased 2.0%, $30.2 million, from 1993
to 1994 due to higher wage rates, partially offset by a decrease in the
number of full-time equivalent employees.  In July 1992, the Company
implemented an average 10.0% wage reduction, which reduction was restored
in equal increments in December 1992, April 1993 and April 1994, with the
final restoration occurring in July 1994.  The number of full-time
equivalent employees decreased from approximately 39,700 as of December 31,
1993 to approximately 37,800 at December 31, 1994.

Rentals and landing fees increased 4.0%, $32 million, from 1993 to 1994. 
Rent expense increased primarily as a result of the delivery of new Boeing
737 and 757 aircraft during 1994.  Such increase was partially offset by
retirements of leased aircraft and the full year impact in 1994 of the
amortization of deferred credits recorded in connection with the Company's
adjustment of operating leases to fair market value as of April 27, 1993.

Aircraft fuel expense decreased 8.7%, $70.6 million, from 1993 to 1994
primarily due to a reduction in the average price per gallon.  The average
price per gallon of fuel decreased 9.7%, from 59.26 cents in 1993 to
53.52 cents in 1994.  The quantity of jet fuel used increased from
1.333 billion gallons in 1993 to 1.349 billion gallons used in 1994
principally due to an increase in the frequency of take-offs and landings
associated with Continental Lite operations.

Maintenance, materials and repairs costs decreased 9.5%, $51.8 million,
from 1993 to 1994 primarily due to increased operational efficiencies and
the retirement of older aircraft.

Commissions expense decreased 20.6%, $113.9 million, from 1993 to 1994
primarily due to a decrease in commissionable sales and a reduction in the
aggregate average commission rate.

Depreciation and amortization expense increased 7.9%, $18.9 million, from
1993 to 1994 due primarily to (i) an increase in aircraft operated under
capital leases during the fourth quarter of 1993, (ii) the amortization of
incremental capitalized costs associated with aircraft, and (iii) the
annualized impact of fresh start adjustments relating to aircraft, routes,
gates and slots and Reorganization Value in Excess of Amounts Allocable to
Identifiable Assets.

Other operating expenses increased 3.8%, $50.7 million, from 1993 to 1994
primarily as a result of increases in reservations and sales expense,
advertising expense and other miscellaneous expenses, partially offset by a
decrease in passenger service expenses that consist primarily of catering
costs.  

The Company's interest expense increased 10.6%, $23.1 million, from 1993 to
1994 due primarily to a net increase in debt on which the Company was
required to accrue interest.  As a result of its Chapter 11 filing, through
April 1993, the Company was not obligated to pay, and accordingly ceased
accruing, contractual interest on its unsecured and undersecured
obligations.

Interest capitalized increased 71.3%, $7.1 million, from 1993 to 1994 due
primarily to an increase in 1994 in the average balance during the year of
purchase deposits for flight equipment.

Interest income increased 20.2%, $3.8 million, from 1993 to 1994 primarily
due to an increase in the average balance of cash and cash equivalents
coupled with an increase in the average interest rate.  Interest income
earned on the Company's investments during the period prior to April 28,
1993 was netted against reorganization items in accordance with SOP 90-7.

The Company recorded gains of $10.5 million and $35.4 million in 1994 and
1993, respectively, relating primarily to Continental's disposition of
property, equipment and other assets.  In 1994, a gain totaling
$8.5 million related to the sale of 10 Beech aircraft and five spare
engines was recorded.  In 1993, the Company recorded a gain of
$34.9 million related to System One's sale to EDS of substantially all of
the assets of its Airline Services Division.

Reorganization items, net, in 1993 included professional fees of
$58.6 million, accruals for rejected aircraft agreements of $153.3 million
and other miscellaneous adjustments of $33.9 million.  In addition, in the
second quarter of 1993, fresh start adjustments totaling $719.1 million
were recorded relating to the adjustment of assets and liabilities to fair
market value as well as other miscellaneous fresh start adjustments of
approximately $76.8 million.  These fresh start adjustments were partially
offset by the write off of deferred gains on sale/leaseback transactions of
$218.6 million and interest income of $4.5 million.

The Company's other nonoperating income (expense) in 1994 included foreign
exchange losses of $5.2 million (primarily related to Japanese yen-
denominated transactions).  Other nonoperating expense in 1993 included
foreign exchange losses (primarily related to Japanese yen, German mark and
British pound denominated transactions), charges totaling approximately
$13.1 million related to the Company's termination of services to Australia
and New Zealand and other expenses primarily related to the abandonment of
airport facilities.

In 1993, the Company recorded an extraordinary gain of $3.6 billion
resulting from the extinguishment of prepetition obligations, including the
write off of a deferred credit related to Eastern of $1.1 billion.

Comparison of 1993 to 1992.  The Company recorded a consolidated loss
before extraordinary gains of $1 billion for the year ended December 31,
1993 as compared to a consolidated net loss of $125.3 million in 1992.  The
Company's net income in 1993 included an extraordinary gain of
approximately $3.6 billion primarily related to the discharge of
prepetition debt obligations.  The net loss in 1992 included gains
aggregating $185 million relating to sales of assets and Eastern-related
adjustments, principally the PBGC Settlement.

Passenger revenues of $5.1 billion in 1993 increased 5.9%, $286.2 million,
from 1992 due primarily to an 8.2% increase in Continental's jet yields,
partially offset by a 1.7% decrease in Continental's jet revenue passenger
miles resulting from a 1.3% decrease in available seat miles.  Such
increase reflected $75 million of passenger revenues recorded in the third
quarter of 1993 as a result of the completion of the Company's periodic
evaluation of its air traffic liability account.

Cargo, mail and other revenues increased 3.6%, $22.8 million, from 1992 to
1993 primarily due to an increase in ground handling and similar services.

Wages, salaries and related costs increased 2.5%, $36.6 million, from 1992
to 1993.  In July 1992, the Company implemented an average 10.0% wage
reduction which was partially offset by increases in worker's compensation
and medical benefits expenses.  In December 1992, 25% of such wage
reduction was restored and in April 1993 another 25% was restored.  The
number of full-time equivalent employees increased from approximately
35,600 as of December 31, 1992 to approximately 39,700 as of December 31,
1993.

Rentals and landing fees remained relatively constant in 1993 as compared
to 1992.  Rent expense increased due to Continental's leaseback of
previously owned aircraft which were transferred to certain debt holders in
December 1992 and April 1993 in settlement of litigation.  These increases
were offset by the amortization of deferred credits recorded in connection
with the Company's adjustment of operating leases to fair market value as
of April 27, 1993.

Aircraft fuel expense decreased 3.0%, $25.4 million, from 1992 to 1993. 
The quantity of jet fuel used increased from 1.307 billion gallons in 1992
to 1.333 billion gallons in 1993 due to an increase in Continental's
operating levels, while the average price per gallon of fuel decreased
5.4%, from 62.48 cents per gallon in 1992 to 59.26 cents per gallon in
1993.

Maintenance, materials and repairs increased 7.8%, $39.6 million, from 1992
to 1993 primarily due to outsourcing certain maintenance to third parties. 
For outsourcing contracts, 100% of the cost is included in maintenance,
materials and repairs, whereas, when Continental performs its own
maintenance work, a portion of such cost is classified as wages, salaries
and related costs, in accordance with industry practice.

Commissions expense increased 19.8%, $91.5 million, from 1992 to 1993
primarily due to an increase in passenger revenues.

Depreciation and amortization expense remained relatively constant in 1993
as compared to 1992.  Depreciation decreased due to a reduction in the
number of owned aircraft as a result of settlements reached in December
1992 and April 1993 with certain aircraft debt holders (which resulted in
the transfer to the debt holders and subsequent leaseback of certain
aircraft).  This decrease was substantially offset by the amortization of
intangibles (including Reorganization Value in Excess of Amounts Allocable
to Identifiable Assets) beginning April 28, 1993.

Other operating expenses increased 6.5%, $82.2 million, from 1992 to 1993
due primarily to increases in reservations and sales expense, advertising
expense and other miscellaneous expenses.

The Company's interest expense increased 42.0%, $64.3 million, from 1992 to
1993 due primarily to (i) interest accretion associated with the fair
market value adjustment for operating leases and debt and (ii) a net
increase in debt on which the Company was required to accrue interest.

Interest capitalized increased 69.5%, $4.1 million, from 1992 to 1993 due
primarily to an increase in 1993 in the average balance during the year of
purchase deposits for flight equipment.

Interest income increased 22.9%, $3.5 million, from 1992 to 1993 primarily
due to an increase in funds available for investment.  Interest income
earned on the Company's investments during the period prior to April 27,
1993 was netted against reorganization items in accordance with SOP 90-7.

The Company recorded gains on disposition of property, equipment and other
assets of approximately $35.4 million in 1993 relating primarily to System
One's sale to EDS of substantially all of the assets of its Airline
Services Division.  The Company recorded gains on disposition of property,
equipment and other assets of approximately $53.2 million in 1992 relating
primarily to Continental's sale to USAir of certain assets at LaGuardia.

In 1992, the Company recorded a $17.3 million gain when it was released
from its guaranty of interest payments on certain Eastern Equipment Trust
Certificates and a $114.5 million net gain in connection with the PBGC
Settlement.

Reorganization items, net, in 1993 included professional fees of
$58.6 million, accruals for rejected aircraft agreements of $153.3 million
and other miscellaneous adjustments of $33.9 million.  In addition, in the
second quarter of 1993, fresh start adjustments totaling $719.1 million
were recorded relating to the adjustment of assets and liabilities to fair
market value as well as other miscellaneous fresh start adjustments of
approximately $76.8 million.  These fresh start adjustments were partially
offset by the write off of deferred gains on sale/leaseback transactions of
$218.6 million and interest income of $4.5 million.

In 1992, the Company recorded reorganization items, net, totaling
$31.5 million, including $30 million in reorganization-related professional
fees, $6.7 million in net adjustments related to rejected leases and
$10.1 million of miscellaneous items, offset by $15.3 million of interest
income.

Continental's loss on settlement of litigation in 1992 included a
$41.6 million charge recorded in connection with a lawsuit brought by
American General Corporation and American General Life Insurance Company
and $8 million related to the settlement of certain antitrust litigation.

The Company's other nonoperating expense in 1993 included foreign exchange
losses (primarily related to Japanese yen, German mark and British pound
denominated transactions), charges totaling approximately $13.1 million
related to the Company's termination of services to Australia and New
Zealand and other expenses primarily related to the abandonment of airport
facilities.  The Company's other nonoperating income in 1992 included
foreign exchange gains of $6.4 million, proceeds of approximately
$4.5 million from Trump Shuttle, Inc. (the "Shuttle") under a settlement
agreement related to the termination of the Shuttle's participation in the
OnePass program, insurance proceeds of $6.4 million and other miscellaneous
items.

In 1993, the Company recorded an extraordinary gain of approximately
$3.6 billion resulting from the extinguishment of prepetition obligations,
including the write off of a deferred credit related to Eastern of
approximately $1.1 billion.

Liquidity and Capital Commitments

As part of the Company's Go Forward Plan, in January 1995 the Company
commenced a series of initiatives designed to improve liquidity in 1995 and
1996.  The major liquidity elements of this plan include (i) rescheduling
principal amortization under the Company's loan agreements with its primary
secured lenders (representing approximately $599.4 million of the Company's
outstanding long-term debt at December 31, 1994), (ii) restructuring the
Company's commitments to purchase new Boeing aircraft and related engines,
(iii) deferring or reducing cash requirements associated with certain
existing aircraft, (iv) reducing the Company's lease commitments at DIA and
(v) evaluating the potential disposition of non-core assets.  As discussed
below, under agreements in principle and binding agreements reached through
April 12, 1995, the Company has improved its liquidity by an estimated
$231 million in 1995 and $221 million in 1996.  This achieves roughly 75%
of the Go Forward Plan liquidity goal.

On March 31, 1995 the Company signed agreements with Boeing and certain
engine manufacturers to defer substantially all aircraft deliveries that
had been scheduled for 1996 and 1997.  Five Boeing 767 aircraft that had
been scheduled for delivery to Continental in 1995 have been sold to a
third party.  They have been replaced by five Boeing 767's which
Continental will take delivery of starting in 1998.  Options to purchase
additional aircraft have been canceled.  On March 30, 1995 Continental
amended its principal secured loan agreements with GE Capital and General
Electric Company (collectively, the "Lenders") to defer 1995 and 1996
principal payments and amended certain of its operating lease agreements
with one of the Lenders to defer 1995 rental obligations.  Continental
agreed, among other things, to obtain concessions from certain aircraft
lessors.  Continuing deferrals of these principal and operating lease
payments will be suspended if specified portions of such concessions are
not obtained by May 31 and June 30, 1995 or if other covenants are not
complied with.  If the required concessions are obtained at a later date,
the deferrals will resume.  As discussed immediately below, the Company has
reached agreements with some of these lessors and is in negotiations with
the remaining lessors.  The Company anticipates that it will be successful
in timely obtaining the required concessions.  These agreements with
Boeing, the engine manufacturers and the Lenders will improve the Company's
1995 and 1996 liquidity by approximately $167 million and $161 million,
respectively. 

In connection with the Go Forward Plan, the Company is retiring from
service 24 less efficient widebody aircraft during 1995.  In February 1995,
the Company began paying market rentals, which are significantly less than
contractual rentals on these aircraft, and began ceasing all rental
payments as the aircraft are removed from service.  In addition,  in
February 1995 Continental reduced its rental payments on an additional 11
widebody aircraft leased at significantly above-market rates.  The Company
began negotiations in February 1995 with the relevant lessors of the 35
widebody aircraft to amend the lease repayment schedules or provide,
effective February 1, 1995, alternative compensation, which could include
debt securities convertible into equity, in lieu of current cash payments. 
As of April 12, 1995, the Company had entered into agreements or agreements
in principle with lessors of 16 of these aircraft that will improve the
Company's liquidity by an estimated $44 million and $40 million in 1995 and
1996, respectively.

On April 10, 1995, the Denver City Council approved an agreement among the
City and County of Denver, the Company and certain signatory airlines
amending the Company's lease of facilities at DIA by reducing the Company's
lease term to five years, reducing to 10 the number of gates (and reducing
associated space) leased by the Company and making certain changes in the
rates and charges under the lease.  The agreement also provides for the
release of certain claims and the settlement of certain litigation filed by
the City and County of Denver against the Company.  See Item 3.  "Legal
Proceedings.  Denver International Airport".  The agreement is expected to
result in annual reduction in costs to the Company of approximately
$20 million over the life of the lease.

Continental and System One are currently negotiating a series of
transactions whereby the existing systems management agreement between
System One and EDS would be terminated and a substantial portion of the
assets (including the travel agent subscriber base and IMS software) and
certain liabilities of System One would be transferred to a newly formed
limited liability company (New S1) that would be owned equally by System
One (which will remain a wholly owned subsidiary of Continental), EDS and
AMADEUS, a European CRS.  Substantially all of System One's remaining
assets (including the CRS software) and liabilities would be transferred to
AMADEUS.  In addition to retaining a one-third interest in New S1, System
One would receive cash proceeds and an equity interest in AMADEUS and the
outstanding indebtedness of System One owed to each of EDS and Continental
would be repaid.  New S1 would market the AMADEUS CRS and would continue to
develop, market and distribute travel-related IMS.  These transactions are
anticipated to close in the second quarter of 1995.

Continental's failure to make required payments to the Lenders, the City
and County of Denver and certain aircraft lessors as described above
constituted events of default under the respective agreements with such
parties.  The agreements reached through April 12, 1995 with the Lenders,
the City and County of Denver and two aircraft lessors have cured defaults
under their respective agreements.  As of April 12, 1995, defaults under
the remaining widebody aircraft leases were continuing due to the
nonpayment of rents, which could entitle the lessors to pursue contractual
remedies, including seeking to take possession of the leased aircraft.  As
of April 12, 1995, the Company is in negotiations with these remaining
lessors and has received proposals from lessors representing a majority of
the Company's agreements currently in default.  The Company believes it
will be able to successfully conclude the remaining negotiations and thus
avoid any material adverse effect on the Company.  In addition, under
"cross default" provisions, the payment defaults create defaults under a
significant number of Continental's other lease and debt agreements, and
the Company's obligations under the agreements subject to such cross
defaults are also eligible to be accelerated.  However, in the opinion of
the Company, it is unlikely that lessors or creditors will exercise
remedies under cross default provisions because (i) the Company is making
all required contractual payments under the applicable agreements, (ii) the
contractual payments on a substantial majority of aircraft leases are at
current market rates, (iii) taking possession of the aircraft would cause
the lessors or lenders to incur remarketing costs, and (iv) exercise of
remedies could expose lessors and lenders to "lender liability" litigation. 
Additionally, the Company has made substantial progress in negotiations
with lenders and lessors to cure the payment defaults and expects to
complete all such negotiations by June 30, 1995, and as a result all events
of default, including cross defaults, should be eliminated.  Consequently,
the Company does not expect the cross defaults to have a material adverse
effect on the Company.

As a result of the FAA Airworthiness Directive which forced the partial
grounding of the Company's ATR commuter fleet in late 1994 and early 1995,
the Company withheld January and February lease payments totaling
$7 million on those ATR aircraft leased by the manufacturer.  The Company's
non-payment of rentals may have resulted in an event of default under the
related lease agreements with ATR.  As of April 12, 1995, the Company was
engaged in discussions with ATR concerning compensation, if any, to be
received by the Company as a result of the grounding, and the Company had
received a proposal from ATR that, if accepted, would cure the payment
default.  In addition because of a decrease in the value of certain
collateral, the Company may have been in default under the debt agreement
relating to the financing of the Company's LAX maintenance facility.  At
March 31, 1995 the principal balance of the applicable obligation was
approximately $64 million and at April 12, 1995, the Company was in
negotiations with the creditor.  As a result of the progress in the ATR and
LAX maintenance facility negotiations, the Company does not anticipate that
the foregoing matters will have a material adverse effect on the Company.

The Company has no current plans to take other actions in the future that
would constitute additional events of default.  

As a result of the defaults and cross-defaults described above that were
continuing at April 12, 1995, approximately $489.9 million of the Company's
long-term debt and capital lease obligations were classified as debt and
capital leases in default within current liabilities as of December 31,
1994.  While the Company does not believe it is probable that it will be
required to fund such defaulted obligations in the next twelve months,
generally accepted accounting principles require that such defaulted
obligations be classified as current liabilities at December 31, 1994.  In
addition, certain operating leases with remaining aggregate rentals of
$1.4 billion as of December 31, 1994 were in default or cross default at
April 12, 1995.  See Notes 5 and 6 of the Notes to the Consolidated
Financial Statements included in Item 8.  Financial Statements and
Supplementary Data.

Continental has firm commitments to take delivery of 22 new 737 and five
new 757 aircraft in 1995, one new 757 aircraft in 1996 and 43 new jet
aircraft during the years 1998 through 2002.  The estimated aggregate cost
of these aircraft is approximately $3.4 billion.  In December 1994, Express
contracted with Beech for the purchase and financing of 25 Beech 1900-D
aircraft at an estimated aggregate cost of $104 million, excluding price
escalations.  Deliveries of the Beech aircraft are scheduled in 1995 and
1996.  As of December 31, 1994, Continental had made deposits on jet and
turboprop aircraft orders of approximately $166.1 million, of which
$29.6 million was refunded in January 1995 and $22.6 million was refunded
in April 1995 in connection with the rescheduling of aircraft deliveries. 
The Company currently anticipates that the firm financing commitments
available to it with respect to its acquisition of new Boeing and Beech
aircraft will be sufficient to fund all deliveries scheduled during the
years 1995 and 1996.  

Continental's capital expenditures during 1994 aggregated approximately
$131.1 million, which primarily related to aircraft modifications,
passenger terminal facility improvements, and ground, telecommunications
and computer equipment.  Continental expects its 1995 capital expenditures,
exclusive of aircraft, to aggregate approximately $83 million primarily
relating to aircraft modifications, passenger terminal facility
improvements and office, maintenance, telecommunications and ground
equipment.

As of December 31, 1994, the Company had approximately $396.3 million in
cash and cash equivalents as compared to $721 million as of December 31,
1993.  The $324.7 million decrease resulted from approximately
$246.6 million of net cash used by financing activities and $121.4 million
of net cash used by investing activities, offset by $43.3 million of net
cash provided by operating activities.

Continental does not have general lines of credit, and substantially all of
its assets, including the stock of its subsidiaries, are encumbered.

Approximately $118.7 million and $102.4 million of cash and cash
equivalents at December 31, 1994 and 1993, respectively, were held in
restricted arrangements relating primarily to workers' compensation claims
and in accordance with the terms of certain other agreements.  In addition,
CMI is required by its loan agreement with GE Capital to maintain certain
minimum cash balances and net worth levels, which effectively restrict the
amount of cash available to Continental from CMI.  As of December 31, 1994,
CMI had a minimum cash balance requirement of $23.7 million.

Continental currently believes that its cash on hand, together with cash
expected to be generated from operations, cash anticipated to be generated
from disposition of non-strategic assets and available aircraft financing,
will be sufficient to fund its operations, fleet commitments and expected
capital expenditures for fiscal 1995.

                      REPORT OF INDEPENDENT AUDITORS


The Board of Directors and Stockholders
Continental Airlines, Inc.

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Continental
Airlines, Inc. (the "Company") as of December 31, 1994 and 1993, and the
related consolidated statements of operations, redeemable and non-
redeemable preferred stock and common stockholders' equity and cash flows
for the year ended December 31, 1994 and for the period April 28, 1993
through December 31, 1993.  We have also audited the accompanying
consolidated statements of operations, redeemable and nonredeemable
preferred stock and common stockholders' equity and cash flows for the
period from January 1, 1993 through April 27, 1993 of Continental Airlines
Holdings, Inc.  These financial statements are the responsibility of the
Company's management.  Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these
financial statements based on our audits.

We conducted our audits in accordance with generally accepted auditing
standards.  Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to
obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free
of material misstatement.  An audit includes examining, on a test basis,
evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial
statements.  An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles
used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating
the overall financial statement presentation.  We believe that our audits
provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

As discussed in Note 2 to the consolidated financial statements, the
Company's consolidated Plan of Reorganization was confirmed by the
bankruptcy court on April 16, 1993 and became effective April 27, 1993.  As
a result, Continental Airlines Holdings, Inc. (the "Predecessor Company")
merged with and into the Company (the "Reorganized Company") effective
April 27, 1993.  The Company also adopted fresh start reporting effective
April 27, 1993 and, as a result, the consolidated financial information for
the period after April 27, 1993 is presented on a different basis of
accounting than for the period before April 28, 1993 and, therefore, is not
comparable.

In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above
present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated financial
position of the Company as of December 31, 1994 and 1993, the consolidated
results of its operations and its cash flows for the year ended
December 31, 1994 and the period from April 28, 1993 to December 31, 1993
and the consolidated results of operations and cash flows of Continental
Airlines Holdings, Inc., for the period from January 1, 1993 through
April 27, 1993, in conformity with generally accepted accounting
principles.

                 REPORT OF INDEPENDENT PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS


To Continental Airlines Holdings, Inc.:

We have audited the accompanying consolidated statements of operations,
nonredeemable preferred stock and common stockholders' deficit and cash
flows of Continental Airlines Holdings, Inc. (a Delaware corporation) and
its subsidiaries, entities in Chapter 11 reorganization proceedings
(Holdings), for the year ended December 31, 1992.  These financial
statements and the schedules referred to below are the responsibility of
Holdings' management.  Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these
financial statements and schedules based on our audit.

We conducted our audit in accordance with generally accepted auditing
standards.  Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to
obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free
of material misstatement.  An audit includes examining, on a test basis,
evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial
statements.  An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles
used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating
the overall financial statement presentation.  We believe that our audit
provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above
present fairly, in all material respects, the results of operations and
cash flows of Holdings for the year ended December 31, 1992, in conformity
with generally accepted accounting principles.

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a
going concern basis.  Holdings has experienced significant operating losses
in 1990, 1991 and 1992.  Furthermore, Holdings is subject to additional
uncertainties, including litigation and significant liquidity concerns,
which management expects will be substantially resolved upon emergence from
bankruptcy and the consummation of the investment by Air Partners, L.P. and
Air Canada.  In January 1993, Holdings filed a revised second amended joint
plan of reorganization and related disclosure statement with the bankruptcy
court.  If a plan of reorganization is not approved by the bankruptcy
court, there is substantial doubt about Holdings' ability to continue as a
going concern.  In the event a plan of reorganization is approved by the
bankruptcy court, the reorganized company will adopt fresh start reporting;
however, in the long-term, the reorganized company's viability will be
dependent upon its ability to achieve successful future operations.  The
accompanying consolidated 1992 financial statements do not include any
adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded
asset amounts or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might
be necessary should Holdings be unable to continue in existence nor do the
consolidated financial statements reflect the adjustments required by fresh
start reporting.

Our audit was made for the purpose of forming an opinion on the basic
financial statements taken as a whole.  The schedules for Holdings for 1992
listed in the index to financial statement schedules are presented for
purposes of complying with the Securities and Exchange Commission's rules
and are not part of the basic financial statements.  These schedules have
been subjected to the auditing procedures applied in the audits of the
basic financial statements and, in our opinion, fairly state in all
material respects the financial data required to be set forth therein in
relation to the basic financial statements taken as a whole.

                NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS


Continental Airlines, Inc. (the "Company", the "Reorganized Company" or
"Continental") is the successor to Continental Airlines Holdings, Inc.
(together with its subsidiaries "Holdings" or the "Predecessor Company")
and Continental Airlines, Inc.  On December 3, 1990, Continental and
Holdings and all their wholly owned domestic subsidiaries filed voluntary
petitions to reorganize under Chapter 11 of the federal bankruptcy code. 
The Companies' consolidated Plan of Reorganization was confirmed on
April 16, 1993 and became effective on April 27, 1993 (the
"Reorganization").  On such date, Holdings merged with and into
Continental.  System One Information Management, Inc. ("System One"), which
had been a subsidiary of Holdings, was reorganized as a subsidiary of
Continental.  Because consolidated Continental (as reorganized) includes
System One and other businesses that had been consolidated with Holdings
prior to April 27, 1993 (but not with pre-reorganization Continental), the
discussion herein includes references to Holdings' consolidated financial
statements for periods prior to April 27, 1993.  On April 27, 1993,
Continental adopted fresh start reporting in accordance with the American
Institute of Certified Public Accountants' Statement of Position 90-7 -
"Financial Reporting by Entities in Reorganization Under the Bankruptcy
Code" ("SOP 90-7"), which resulted in adjustments to the Company's common
stockholders' equity and the carrying values of assets and liabilities. 
Accordingly, the Company's post-reorganization balance sheet and statements
of operations have not been prepared on a consistent basis of accounting
with the pre-reorganization balance sheet and statements of operations. 
For accounting purposes, the inception date for the Reorganized Company is
deemed to be April 28, 1993.  A vertical black line is shown in the
consolidated financial statements to separate Continental from the
Predecessor Company since they have not been prepared on a consistent basis
of accounting.

NOTE 1 - LIQUIDITY

During the fourth quarter of 1994, the Company determined that a new
strategic plan, the Go Forward Plan, was needed to return the Company to
profitability and strengthen its balance sheet.  As part of the Company's
Go Forward Plan, in January 1995, the Company commenced a series of
initiatives designed to improve liquidity in 1995 and 1996.  The major
liquidity elements of this plan include (i) rescheduling principal
amortization under the Company's loan agreements with its primary secured
lenders (representing approximately $599.4 million of the Company's
outstanding long-term debt at December 31, 1994), (ii) restructuring the
Company's commitments to purchase new Boeing aircraft and related engines,
(iii) deferring or reducing cash requirements associated with certain
existing aircraft, (iv) reducing the Company's lease commitments at Denver
International Airport ("DIA") and (v) evaluating the potential disposition
of non-core assets.  As discussed below, under agreements in principle and
binding agreements reached through April 12, 1995, the Company has improved
its liquidity by an estimated $231 million in 1995 and $221 million in
1996.  This achieves roughly 75% of the Go Forward Plan liquidity goal.

On March 31, 1995 the Company signed agreements with The Boeing Company
("Boeing") and certain engine manufacturers to defer substantially all
aircraft deliveries that had been scheduled for 1996 and 1997.  Five Boeing
767 aircraft that had been scheduled for delivery to Continental in 1995
have been sold to a third party.  They have been replaced by five Boeing
767's which Continental will take delivery of starting in 1998.  Options to
purchase additional aircraft have been canceled.  On March 30, 1995
Continental amended its principal secured loan agreements with General
Electric Capital Corporation and affiliates (collectively, "GE Capital")
and General Electric Company (collectively, the "Lenders") to defer 1995
and 1996 principal payments and amended certain of its operating lease
agreements with one of the Lenders to defer 1995 rental obligations. 
Continental agreed, among other things, to obtain concessions from certain
aircraft lessors.  Continuing deferrals of these principal and operating
lease payments will be suspended if specified portions of such concessions
are not obtained by May 31 and June 30, 1995 or if other covenants are not
complied with.  If the required concessions are obtained at a later date,
the deferrals will resume.  As discussed immediately below, the Company has
reached agreements with some of these lessors and is in negotiations with
the remaining lessors.  The Company anticipates that it will be successful
in timely obtaining the required concessions.  These agreements with
Boeing, the engine manufacturers and the Lenders will improve the Company's
1995 and 1996 liquidity by approximately $167 million and $161 million,
respectively. 

In connection with the Go Forward Plan, the Company is retiring from
service 24 less efficient widebody aircraft during 1995.  In February 1995,
the Company began paying market rentals, which are significantly less than
contractual rentals on these aircraft, and began ceasing all rental
payments as the aircraft are removed from service.  In addition,  in
February 1995 Continental reduced its rental payments on an additional 11
widebody aircraft leased at significantly above-market rates.  The Company
began negotiations in February 1995 with the relevant lessors of the 35
widebody aircraft to amend the lease repayment schedules or provide,
effective February 1, 1995, alternative compensation, which could include
debt securities convertible into equity, in lieu of current cash payments. 
As of April 12, 1995, the Company had entered into agreements or agreements
in principle with lessors of 16 of these aircraft that will improve the
Company's liquidity by an estimated $44 million and $40 million in 1995 and
1996, respectively.

On April 10, 1995, the Denver City Council approved an agreement among the
City and County of Denver (the "City"), the Company and certain signatory
airlines amending the Company's lease of facilities at DIA by reducing the
Company's lease term to five years, reducing to 10 the number of gates (and
reducing associated space) leased by the Company and making certain changes
in the rates and charges under the lease.  The agreement also provides for
the release of certain claims and the settlement of certain litigation
filed by the City against the Company.  See Note 13.  The agreement is
expected to result in annual reduction in costs to the Company of
approximately $20 million over the life of the lease.

Continental and System One are currently negotiating a series of
transactions whereby the existing systems management agreement between
System One and Electronic Data System ("EDS") would be terminated and a
substantial portion of the assets (including the travel agent subscriber
base and travel-related information management products and services
("IMS") software) and certain liabilities of System One would be
transferred to a newly formed limited liability company ("New S1") that
would be owned equally by System One (which will remain a wholly owned
subsidiary of Continental), EDS and AMADEUS, a European computerized
reservation system ("CRS").  Substantially all of System One's remaining
assets (including the CRS software) and liabilities would be transferred to
AMADEUS.  In addition to retaining a one-third interest in New S1, System
One would receive cash proceeds and an equity interest in AMADEUS and the
outstanding indebtedness of System One owed to each of EDS and Continental
would be repaid.  New S1 would market the AMADEUS CRS and would continue to
develop, market and distribute travel-related IMS.  These transactions,
which are expected to result in a gain, are anticipated to close in the
second quarter of 1995.

Continental's failure to make required payments to the Lenders, the City
and County of Denver and certain aircraft lessors as described above
constituted events of default under the respective agreements with such
parties.  The agreements reached through April 12, 1995 with the Lenders,
the City and County of Denver and two aircraft lessors have cured the
defaults under their respective agreements.  As of April 12, 1995, defaults
under the remaining widebody aircraft leases were continuing due to the
nonpayment of rents, which could entitle the lessors to pursue contractual
remedies, including seeking to take possession of the leased aircraft.  As
of April 12, 1995, the Company is in negotiations with these remaining
lessors and has received proposals from lessors representing a majority of
the Company's agreements currently in default.  The Company believes it
will be able to successfully conclude the remaining negotiations and thus
avoid any material adverse effect on the Company.  In addition, under
"cross default" provisions, the payment defaults create defaults under a
significant number of Continental's other lease and debt agreements, and
the Company's obligations under the agreements subject to such cross
defaults are also eligible to be accelerated.  However, in the opinion of
the Company, it is unlikely that lessors or creditors will exercise
remedies under cross default provisions because (i) the Company is making
all required contractual payments under the applicable agreements, (ii) the
contractual payments on a substantial majority of aircraft leases are at
current market rates, (iii) taking possession of the aircraft would cause
the lessors or lenders to incur remarketing costs, and (iv) exercise of
remedies could expose lessors and lenders to "lender liability" litigation. 
Additionally, the Company has made substantial progress in negotiations
with lenders and lessors to cure the payment defaults and expects to
complete all such negotiations by June 30, 1995, and as a result all events
of default, including cross defaults, should be eliminated.  Consequently,
the Company does not expect the cross defaults to have a material adverse
effect on the Company.

As a result of the Federal Aviation Administration ("FAA") Airworthiness
Directive which forced the partial grounding of the Company's ATR commuter
fleet in late 1994 and early 1995, the Company withheld January and
February lease payments totaling $7 million on those ATR aircraft leased by
the manufacturer.  The Company's non-payment of rentals may have resulted
in an event of default under the related lease agreements with ATR.  As of
April 12, 1995, the Company was engaged in discussions with ATR concerning
compensation, if any, to be received by the Company as a result of the
grounding, and the Company had received a proposal from ATR that, if
accepted, would cure the payment default.  In addition because of a
decrease in the value of certain collateral, the Company may have been in
default under the debt agreement relating to the financing of the Company's
Los Angeles International Airport ("LAX") maintenance facility.  At
March 31, 1995 the principal balance of the applicable obligation was
approximately $64 million and at April 12, 1995, the Company was in
negotiations with the creditor.  As a result of the progress in the ATR and
LAX maintenance facility negotiations, the Company does not anticipate that
the foregoing matters will have a material adverse effect on the Company.

The Company has no current plans to take other actions in the future that
would constitute additional events of default.  

As a result of the defaults and cross-defaults described above that were
continuing at April 12, 1995, approximately $489.9 million of the Company's
long-term debt and capital lease obligations were classified as debt and
capital leases in default within current liabilities as of December 31,
1994.  While the Company does not believe it is probable that it will be
required to fund such defaulted obligations in the next twelve months,
generally accepted accounting principles require that such defaulted
obligations be classified as current liabilities at December 31, 1994.  In
addition, certain operating leases with remaining aggregate rentals of
$1.4 billion as of December 31, 1994 were in default or cross default at
April 12, 1995.  See Notes 5 and 6.

NOTE 2 - PREDECESSOR COMPANY CHAPTER 11 REORGANIZATION

On April 16, 1993, the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of
Delaware (the "Bankruptcy Court") confirmed the Plan of Reorganization of
Holdings and all its subsidiaries that had filed for Chapter 11
reorganization, including, among others, Continental, System One and
Chelsea Catering Corporation ("Chelsea") (collectively, the "Debtors"). 
The Reorganization became effective on April 27, 1993 (the "Effective
Date").  The Reorganization resolved several large contingent claims that
had burdened the Company.  Such claims and contingencies included the
Company's liability to the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (the
"PBGC") related to pension plans previously maintained by Eastern Air
Lines, Inc. ("Eastern") (the "PBGC Settlement") and the Company's potential
liability to Eastern (or its creditors) as a result of certain transactions
entered into with Eastern prior to 1989.  Certain of Eastern's former
employees continue to assert claims against the Company, including demands
that former Eastern pilots be integrated into Continental's work force.

Pursuant to the Reorganization, pre-existing equity interests of the
Company were cancelled, the Company's obligations to other prepetition
creditors were restructured and general unsecured nonpriority prepetition
creditors became entitled, in full satisfaction of their claims, to share
in $6,523,952 of cash and fixed pools of Class A Common Stock ("Class A")
and Class B Common Stock ("Class B") of the Reorganized Company.

Pursuant to the Reorganization, on the Effective Date, all of the Debtors
other than Continental were merged with and into Continental.  Continental
capitalized two wholly owned subsidiaries, Continental Express, Inc.
("Express") and System One, which continue the commuter airline and
computer reservations and related businesses, respectively, of certain of
the Debtors, by transferring certain assets and liabilities to such
subsidiaries.  Also, on the Effective Date, Continental transferred the
assets of its Continental/Air Micronesia division to Continental
Micronesia, Inc. ("CMI"), an indirect subsidiary 91.0%-owned by Continental
which continues Continental's western Pacific operations.

As part of the Reorganization and an Investment Agreement dated
November 12, 1992, as amended, between Continental, Holdings, Air Partners,
L.P. ("AP") and Air Canada ("AC"), on the Effective Date (i) AP purchased
for an aggregate of $55 million (less certain fees) 2,740,000 shares of
Class A and 2,260,000 shares of Class B and warrants to purchase an
aggregate of 1,519,734 additional shares of Class A and
3,382,632 additional shares of Class B; (ii) AC purchased for an aggregate
of $55 million (less certain fees) 1,373,216 shares of Class A and
3,626,784 shares of Class B and warrants to purchase an aggregate of
1,367,880 additional shares of Class A and 4,849,755 additional shares of
Class B; (iii) enRoute Enterprises USA Inc., an indirect wholly owned
subsidiary of AC, purchased 300,000 shares of Continental's 12% Cumulative
Preferred Stock ("12% Preferred Stock") for $30 million; (iv) Continental
issued to itself, as Distribution Agent, 1,900,000 shares of its Class A
and 5,042,368 shares of its Class B for the benefit of general unsecured
creditors under the Plan of Reorganization; (v) Continental issued
493,621 shares of Class B to the Master Trust for the Continental Airlines,
Inc. Retirement Plan; and (vi) Continental issued to GE Capital, as
commitment consideration for its loan to CMI, 171,000 shares of its newly-
authorized 8% Cumulative Preferred Stock ("8% Preferred Stock").  As a
result of such issuances, as of April 27, 1993, AC had 28.7% of the equity
interest and 24.3% of the voting power and AP had 28.7% of the equity
interest and 41.5% of the voting power of Continental without giving effect
to the warrants.

Nonoperating reorganization items recorded by the Predecessor Company
consisted of the following (in millions):

NOTE 3 - FRESH START REPORTING

In connection with its emergence from bankruptcy on April 27, 1993,
Continental adopted fresh start reporting in accordance with SOP 90-7.  The
fresh start reporting common equity value of $615 million was determined by
the Company with the assistance of its financial advisors.  The significant
factors used in the determination of this value were analyses of publicly
available information of other companies believed to be comparable to the
Company, industry, economic and overall market conditions and historical
and estimated performance of the airline industry; discussions with various
potential investors; and certain financial analyses, including discounted
future cash flows.

Under fresh start reporting, the reorganization value of the entity has
been allocated to the Reorganized Company's assets and liabilities on a
basis substantially consistent with the purchase method of accounting.  The
portion of reorganization value not attributable to specific tangible or
identifiable intangible assets of the Reorganized Company has been
reflected as "Reorganization Value in Excess of Amounts Allocable to
Identifiable Assets" in the accompanying consolidated balance sheet as of
December 31, 1993.  The fresh start reporting adjustments, primarily
related to the adjustment of the Company's assets and liabilities to fair
market values, will have a significant effect on the Company's future
statements of operations.  The more significant adjustments relate to
increased depreciation and amortization expense relating to aircraft,
routes, gates and slots and reorganization value in excess of amounts
allocable to identifiable assets; reduced aircraft rent expense; and
increased interest expense.

NOTE 4 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

(a)  Principles of Consolidation -

     The consolidated financial statements of the Reorganized Company
     include the accounts of Continental and its wholly owned operating
     subsidiaries, System One and Express, as well as CMI.  The minority
     interest holder of CMI has rights to acquire the minimum number of
     additional shares of CMI necessary to cause Continental's equity
     interest to decline below 80.0% if certain events relating to the
     defined benefit plans of Continental occur.  The consolidated
     financial statements of the Predecessor Company include the accounts
     of Holdings and its wholly owned operating subsidiaries, Continental,
     System One and Chelsea.

     The companies operate within the air transportation industry.  All
     significant intercompany transactions have been eliminated in
     consolidation.

(b)  Cash and Cash Equivalents -

     Cash and cash equivalents consist of cash and short-term, highly
     liquid investments which are readily convertible into cash and have
     original maturities of three months or less.  Approximately
     $118.7 million and $102.4 million of cash and cash equivalents at
     December 31, 1994 and December 31, 1993, respectively, were held in
     restricted arrangements relating primarily to payments for workers'
     compensation claims and in accordance with the terms of certain other
     agreements.

(c)  Spare Parts and Supplies -

     Flight equipment expendable parts and supplies were recorded at fair
     market values (which approximated average cost) as of April 27, 1993;
     subsequent purchases are valued at average cost.  An allowance for
     obsolescence for flight equipment expendable parts and supplies is
     accrued to allocate the costs of these assets, less an estimated
     residual value, over the estimated useful lives of the related
     aircraft and engines.

(d)  Property and Equipment -

     Property and equipment were recorded at fair market values as of
     April 27, 1993; subsequent purchases are valued at cost and are
     depreciated to estimated residual values over their estimated useful
     lives using the straight-line method.  Estimated useful lives for such
     assets are 15 to 28 years from date of manufacture for all owned jet
     and certain commuter aircraft; 9 to 21 years, depending on the lease
     period, for aircraft acquired under long-term capital leases; and 2 to
     25 years for other property and equipment, including airport facility
     improvements.  Effective April 27, 1993, Continental revised the
     estimated useful lives of its Stage III aircraft from 28 years from
     date of manufacture to 25 years.

(e)  Intangible Assets -

     Routes are amortized on a straight-line basis over 40 years, gates
     over the stated term of the related lease and slots over 20 years. 
     Routes, gates and slots are comprised of the following (in millions):

                            $1,591.1                   $96.6
</TABLE>

     Reorganization value in excess of amounts allocable to identifiable
     assets is amortized on a straight-line basis over 20 years.  The
     carrying value of intangible assets is reviewed if the facts and
     circumstances suggest that it may be impaired.  If this review
     indicates that the Company's intangible assets will not be
     recoverable, as determined based on the undiscounted cash flows over
     the remaining amortization period, the Company's carrying value of the
     intangible assets is reduced by the estimated shortfall of cash flows.

(f)  Air Traffic Liability -

     Passenger revenues are recognized when transportation is provided
     rather than when a ticket is sold.  The amount of passenger ticket
     sales not yet recognized as revenue is reflected in the accompanying
     consolidated balance sheets as air traffic liability.  The Company
     performs periodic evaluations of this estimated liability, and any
     adjustments resulting therefrom, which can be significant, are
     included in results of operations for the periods in which the
     evaluations are completed.  In the third quarter of 1993, the Company
     recorded an adjustment to increase passenger revenues by $75 million
     as a result of completion of a periodic evaluation.

     Continental sponsors a frequent flyer program ("OnePass") and records
     an estimated liability for the incremental cost associated with
     providing the related free transportation at the time a free travel
     award is earned.  The liability is adjusted periodically based on
     awards earned and awards redeemed.

(g)  Passenger Traffic Commissions -

     Passenger traffic commissions are recognized as expense when the
     transportation is provided and the related revenue is recognized.  The
     amount of passenger traffic commissions not yet recognized as expense
     is included in prepayments and other in the accompanying consolidated
     balance sheets.

(h)  Deferred Income Taxes -

     Deferred income taxes reflect the net tax effects of temporary
     differences between the financial reporting carrying amounts of assets
     and liabilities and the income tax amounts.

(i)  Deferred Credit - Aircraft Operating Leases -

     Aircraft operating leases were adjusted to fair market value at
     April 27, 1993.  The net present value of the difference between the
     stated lease rates and the fair market rates has been recorded as a
     deferred credit in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets.  The
     deferred credit is increased through charges to interest expense and
     decreased on a straight-line basis as a reduction in rent expense over
     the applicable lease periods, generally one to 15 years.

(j)  Maintenance and Repair Costs -

     Maintenance and repair costs for owned and leased flight equipment,
     including the overhaul of aircraft components, are charged to
     operating expense as incurred.

(k)  Petroleum Option Contracts -

     Gains on petroleum option contracts are recognized as a component of
     fuel expense when the underlying fuel being hedged is used.

(l)  Earnings (Loss) per Share -

     Earnings (loss) per common share computations are based upon earnings
     (loss) applicable to common shares and the average number of shares of
     common stock and dilutive common stock equivalents (stock options,
     warrants and restricted stock) outstanding.  The number of shares used
     in the computation for the year ended December 31, 1994 and the period
     April 28, 1993 through December 31, 1993 was 26,056,897 and
     18,022,918, respectively.  Preferred stock dividend requirements
     (including additional dividends on unpaid dividends) and accretion to
     redemption value on preferred stock increased the net loss for this
     computation by approximately $5.7 million and $3.5 million for the
     year ended December 31, 1994 and for the period April 28, 1993 through
     December 31, 1993, respectively.  On the Effective Date, all of the
     outstanding common and preferred stock of Holdings was cancelled. 
     Information regarding the earnings (loss) per share computation
     relating to the pre-reorganization stock is not comparable with data
     provided for Class A and Class B and is therefore not included.

(m)  Reclassifications -

     Certain reclassifications have been made in the prior year's financial
     statements to conform to the current year presentation.

NOTE 5 - LONG-TERM DEBT

Continental's long-term debt was recorded at fair market value at April 27,
1993.  The fair market value adjustment is amortized to interest expense
over the life of the debt.  Long-term debt as of December 31 is summarized
as follows (in millions of dollars):

</TABLE>

Substantially all of Continental's property, equipment and spare parts and
supplies are subject to agreements securing indebtedness of Continental.

Continental has various loan and lease obligations with GE Capital which
were renegotiated in March 1995.  In addition, the Company is in default
under various loan agreements.  See Note 1.

Continental and CMI have various loan agreements containing significant
financial covenants including, among other things, minimum cash balance
requirements, consolidated net worth requirements, restrictions on the
payment of dividends, restrictions on new borrowings and mandatory
prepayments upon sale of certain assets.  As of December 31, 1994, CMI had
a minimum cash balance requirement of $23.7 million, net assets of
$286.7 million and was restricted from paying dividends in excess of
approximately $48.7 million.

In December 1993, the Company obtained a $50 million secured revolving
credit facility, the proceeds from which must be used to finance certain
aircraft purchase deposits.  During 1994, Continental drew down
approximately $21.5 million and repaid a total of $31.6 million of such
facility.  The revolving credit agreement contains a financial covenant
relating to minimum cash balance requirements and is collateralized by
certain accounts receivable and the related aircraft agreements.

Maturities of long-term debt due over the next five years (including the
scheduled repayments of debt in default) are as follows (in millions):

As of December 31, 1994 and 1993, the prime, LIBOR and Eurodollar rates
associated with Continental's indebtedness approximated 8.5% and 6.0%, 6.5%
and 3.4%, and 6.3% and 4.0%, respectively.

NOTE 6 - LEASES

Continental leases certain aircraft and other assets under long-term lease
arrangements.  Other leased assets include real property, airport and
terminal facilities, sales offices, maintenance facilities, training
centers and general offices.  Most leases also include renewal options and
some aircraft leases include purchase options.

At December 31, 1994, the scheduled future minimum lease payments under
capital leases and the scheduled future minimum lease rental payments
required under aircraft and engine operating leases that have initial or
remaining noncancellable lease terms in excess of one year are as follows
(in millions):

______________
* These amounts have not been reduced to reflect the Company's fresh start-
  related revaluation of leases to fair market value as of April 27, 1993
  (see Note 4(i)).

In March and April 1995, the Company successfully completed negotiations
with lessors of 11 narrowbody aircraft and 16 widebody aircraft which
resulted in the deferral of payments due in 1995 and 1996 to later years. 
Such deferrals are not reflected in the tables above.  Operating leases
with remaining lease payments of $1.4 billion as of December 31, 1994 are
in default as of April 12, 1995.  Scheduled repayments have not been
adjusted in the above table.  See Note 1.

Not included in the above operating lease table is approximately
$240 million in annual minimum lease payments relating to non-aircraft
leases, principally airport and terminal facilities and related equipment. 
See Note 1 for a discussion of the Denver lease.

The Company's total rental expense for all operating leases, net of
sublease rentals, was $674.6 million, $666.2 million and $645.9 million in
1994, 1993 and 1992, respectively.

As of December 31, 1994, Continental remains contingently liable on
$202.1 million of long-term lease obligations of USAir, Inc. ("USAir")
related to the East End Terminal at LaGuardia.  In the event USAir defaults
on such obligations, Continental may be required to cure the default, at
which time it would have the right to reoccupy the terminal.

NOTE 7 - FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

(a)  Cash equivalents -

     Cash equivalents consist primarily of commercial paper with maturities
     of three months or less and approximate fair value due to the short
     maturity of three months or less.

(b)  Investment in Marketable Equity Securities -

     Continental's investment in America West is classified as available-
     for-sale and carried at aggregate market value of $16.6 million at
     December 31, 1994.  An unrealized loss of $2.2 million representing
     the excess of cost over market value is reflected in stockholders'
     equity.

(c)  Petroleum Option Contracts -

     The Company enters into petroleum option contracts to protect against
     a sharp increase in jet fuel prices.  These option contracts generally
     cover the Company's forecasted jet fuel needs for the next three to
     six months.  At December 31, 1994, the Company had options outstanding
     with an aggregate contract value of approximately $140 million.  At
     December 31, 1994, the fair value of the option contracts was
     immaterial as the strike price under these contracts exceeded the
     current spot rate.  During the year ended December 31, 1994, option
     hedging activities reduced fuel expense by approximately $2.2 million,
     net of the premiums associated with these options.

     The Company is exposed to credit loss in the event of nonperformance
     by the counterparty on the petroleum option contracts, however, the
     Company does not anticipate nonperformance by this counterparty.  The
     amount of such exposure is generally the unrealized gains, if any, on
     such option contracts.

(d)  Debt -

     The fair value of the Company's debt with a carrying value of
     $1.34 billion and $1.53 billion as of December 31, 1994 and
     December 31, 1993, respectively, estimated based on the discounted
     amount of future cash flows using the current incremental rate of
     borrowing for a similar liability or quoted market prices,
     approximates $1.29 billion and $1.56 billion, respectively.  The fair
     value of the remaining debt (with a carrying value of approximately
     $84.4 million and $53.1 million, respectively, and primarily relating
     to modification notes) was not practicable to estimate due to the
     large number and small dollar amounts of these notes.

NOTE 8 - PREFERRED AND COMMON STOCK

On the Effective Date, all of the then outstanding equity securities of the
Predecessor Company were cancelled, including all outstanding common and
preferred stock of Continental and Holdings.  Continental's Restated
Certificate of Incorporation authorizes the issuance of 10 million shares
of preferred stock, 50 million shares each of Class A, Class C Common Stock
("Class C") and Class D Common Stock ("Class D") and 100 million shares of
Class B.

Redeemable Preferred Stock

Pursuant to the Plan of Reorganization and the Investment Agreement, newly
authorized shares of redeemable preferred stock were issued.  Redeemable
preferred stock consists of the following:

</TABLE>

Holders of 12% Preferred Stock and 8% Preferred Stock are entitled to
receive, when and if declared by the Board of Directors (the "Board") out
of legally available funds of the Company, cumulative dividends payable
quarterly in cash at an annual rate of $12 and $8 per share for 12%
Preferred Stock and 8% Preferred Stock, respectively.  To the extent net
income, as defined, for any calendar quarter is less than the amount of
dividends due on all outstanding shares of 12% Preferred Stock for such
quarter, the Board may declare dividends payable in additional shares of
12% Preferred Stock in lieu of cash.  At any time, the Company may redeem,
in whole or in part, on a pro rata basis among the stockholders, any
outstanding shares of 12% Preferred Stock or 8% Preferred Stock.  All
outstanding shares of both series of preferred stock are mandatorily
redeemable on April 27, 2003 out of legally available funds.  In each case,
the redemption price is $100 per share plus accrued unpaid dividends. 
Neither series of preferred stock is convertible into shares of common
stock and neither series has voting rights, except under limited
circumstances.  The 8% Preferred Stock ranks pari passu with the 12%
Preferred Stock as to payment of dividends and liquidation.  As of December
31, 1994, the Company had approximately $8.9 million of dividends on its
preferred stock in arrears.

The Company recorded a $222,000 and $134,000 charge against additional
paid-in capital related to the accretion of the difference between
redemption value and fair market value at date of issuance for the 8%
Preferred Stock for the year ended December 31, 1994 and for the period
from April 28, 1993 through December 31, 1993, respectively.

Common Stock

Continental has two classes of common stock outstanding, Class A and
Class B.  Holders of shares of Class A and Class B are entitled to receive
dividends when and if declared by the Board.  Each share of Class A is
entitled to 10 votes per share and each share of Class B is entitled to one
vote per share.  Pursuant to a stockholders' agreement, AC and AP have
agreed to vote their shares for the election of six directors nominated by
AC, six directors nominated by AP and six directors not affiliated with AP
or AC.  AC has the right, subject to foreign ownership restrictions, to
convert shares of Class B into shares of Class A.  Also, AC has the limited
right, in certain circumstances, to convert its Class A into Class C and AP
has the limited right, in certain circumstances, to convert its Class A
into Class D.  No person may hold or own Class C or Class D stock,
respectively, other than AC and certain of its affiliates or AP and certain
of its affiliates.  The Class C and Class D common stock, if issued, would
preserve the rights of each of AC and AP, respectively, to elect six
directors to the Company's Board in certain circumstances, including a sale
by the other party of its stock.

On December 14, 1993, the Company sold 8,086,579 shares of Class B common
stock in an underwritten public offering realizing net proceeds of
approximately $153.1 million.  In January 1994, AC converted 287,840 shares
of Class B into an equal number shares of Class A to preserve its
percentage of total voting power.  In July 1994, 1,000,000 shares of
restricted Class B were granted and issued to substantially all employees
at or below the manager or equivalent level and 182,000 shares of
restricted Class B were granted and issued to key officers.  See Note 9. 
As of December 31, 1994, AC had 18.7% of the equity interest and 23.9% of
the voting power and AP had 18.7% of the equity interest and 35.6% of the
voting power.

Warrants

The Company has outstanding 11,120,001 Class A Warrants and Class B
Warrants (collectively, the "Warrants") of which 4,902,366 Warrants are
held by AP and 6,217,635 Warrants are held by AC.  Each Warrant entitles
the holder to purchase one share of Class A or Class B.  The Warrants are
exercisable as follows:  (i) 7,413,334 Warrants (1,964,534 Class A Warrants
and 5,448,800 Class B Warrants) have an initial exercise price of $15 per
share, and (ii) 3,706,667 Warrants (923,080 Class A Warrants and
2,783,587 Class B Warrants) have an initial exercise price of $30 per
share.  The warrants expire on April 27, 1998.

NOTE 9 - STOCK PLANS AND AWARDS

On March 4, 1994, the Board of Directors adopted the Continental Airlines,
Inc. 1994 Employee Stock Purchase Plan (the "Stock Purchase Plan")
effective July 1, 1994 and the Continental Airlines, Inc. 1994 Incentive
Equity Plan (the "Incentive Plan"), which plans were approved by the
stockholders of the Company at the annual stockholders' meeting on June 30,
1994.

Under the Company's Stock Purchase Plan, all full and part-time employees
of the Company who are on the United States payroll may purchase shares of
Class B at 85% of the lower of fair market value on the first or last
business day of a calendar quarter.  Subject to adjustment, a maximum of
4,000,000 shares of Class B are authorized for purchase under the Stock
Purchase Plan.  In January 1995, 118,069 shares of Class B were issued in
connection with the Stock Purchase Plan.

Under the Incentive Plan, key officers and employees of the Company and its
subsidiaries may be selected by the Human Resources Committee of the Board
of Directors (the "Committee") to receive any or all of the following: 
stock options, restricted stock, long-term incentive awards and annual
incentive awards subject to adjustment.  The Incentive Plan also provides
for each outside director to receive on the day following the annual
stockholders meeting options to purchase 1,500 shares of Class B.  Subject
to adjustment, the number of shares of Class B that may be issued under the
Incentive Plan will not in the aggregate exceed 2,300,000.  The following
table summarizes stock option transactions pursuant to the Company's
Incentive Plan for the year ended December 31, 1994:

* The option price for all stock options is equal to 100% of the fair
  market value of Continental's common stock at the date of grant.

The stock options generally vest over a four-year period.

In addition, the Incentive Plan permits awards of restricted stock to
participants, subject to one or more restrictions, including a restriction
period and a purchase price, if any, to be paid by the participant, as
determined by the Committee.  The number of shares of common stock that may
be granted or sold as restricted stock under the Incentive Plan may not in
the aggregate exceed 300,000 shares of Class B.  As of December 31, 1994,
152,000 shares of restricted stock were outstanding with no cost to the
participants.  These shares vest over a two-year period.  During 1994,
30,000 shares were forfeited and returned to treasury stock.  At
December 31, 1994, 302,000 shares of common stock were available for future
grants of stock options or restricted stock under the Incentive Plan. 
Additionally, on March 4, 1994, the Board approved a one-time grant of
1,000,000 shares of restricted stock to substantially all employees at or
below the Manager level.  These shares were issued at no cost to the
employee and vest over a four-year period.  Unvested shares of restricted
stock are subject to certain transfer restrictions and forfeiture under
certain circumstances.  The unearned portion of restricted stock issued for
future service, representing the fair market value of the stock on the date
of award, is being amortized to wages, salaries and related costs over the
vesting period.

The Board of Directors, on March 4, 1994, also approved a profit sharing
program under which 15% of the Company's pre-tax earnings (before unusual
or nonrecurring items) will be distributed each year to all employees on a
pro rata basis according to base salary.

NOTE 10 - EMPLOYEE BENEFIT PLANS

The Company has noncontributory defined benefit pension and defined
contribution (including 401(k) savings) plans.  Substantially all domestic
employees of the Company are covered by one or more of these plans.  The
benefits under the active defined benefit pension plan are based on years
of service and an employee's final average compensation.  Total pension
expense for the defined benefit plans was $50.7 million, $52.1 million and
$36 million and total expense for the defined contribution plans was
$0.9 million, $0.3 million and $2.1 million for 1994, 1993 and 1992,
respectively.

Net periodic pension cost of the Company's defined benefit plans for 1994,
1993 and 1992 included the following components (in millions):

retirement plan for domestic employees and the recognition of unamortized
losses and costs.  The following table sets forth the defined benefit
plans' funded status amounts as of December 31, 1994 and 1993 (in

</TABLE>

In accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 87
"Employers' Accounting for Pensions", an additional minimum pension
liability for certain plans, representing the excess of accumulated
benefits over plan assets and accrued pension costs, was recognized at
December 31, 1994 and 1993.  A corresponding amount was recognized as a
separate reduction to stockholders' equity.

Plan assets consist primarily of equity securities, long-term debt
securities and short-term investments.  Pursuant to the Reorganization, the
PBGC Settlement and the Investment Agreement, on April 27, 1993,
Continental issued 493,621 shares of Class B to the Master Trust for the
Continental Airlines, Inc. Retirement Plan.

The weighted average discount rate used in determining the actuarial
present value of the projected benefit obligation was 8.75%, 7.50% and
8.25% for 1994, 1993 and 1992, respectively.  The expected long-term rate
of return on assets (which is used to calculate the Company's return on
pension assets for the current year) was 9.25%, 9.25% and 9.97% for 1994,
1993 and 1992, respectively.  The weighted average rate of salary increases
was 4.3%, 5.3% and 6.3% for 1994, 1993 and 1992, respectively.  The
unrecognized net gain (loss) are amortized on a straight-line basis over
the average remaining service period of employees expected to receive a
plan benefit.

Continental's policy is to fund the noncontributory defined benefit pension
plans in accordance with Internal Revenue Service ("IRS") requirements as
modified, to the extent applicable, by agreements with the IRS.

NOTE 11 - INCOME TAXES

Effective April 27, 1993, the Reorganized Company adopted the liability
method of accounting for income taxes required by SFAS No. 109 (which was
adopted January 1, 1993 by the Predecessor Company).  Under the provisions
of SFAS 109, the Company elected not to restate prior years' consolidated
financial statements.  The cumulative effect of initial adoption on prior
years' retained earnings was not material.  Additionally, as of January 1,
1993, the effect of the adoption of SFAS 109 upon income before income
taxes was not material.

The reconciliation of income tax computed at the United States federal
statutory tax rates to income tax benefit for the year ended December 31,
1994 and the period April 28, 1993 through December 31, 1993 are as follows
(in millions):

</TABLE>

The significant component of the provision for income taxes for the year
ended December 31, 1994 and the period April 28, 1993 through December 31,
1993 was a deferred tax benefit of $42.2 million and $12.8 million,
respectively.

The provision for income taxes of the Predecessor Company for the period
from January 1 through April 27, 1993 and for the year ended December 31,
1992 was $2.1 million and $0.5 million, respectively.  The provision for
income taxes of the Predecessor Company represents only state income taxes. 
Due to losses generated, there is no provision for federal income taxes for
the period from January 1, 1993 through April 27, 1993 and for the year
ended December 31, 1992.

The provision for income taxes for the period from April 28, 1993 through
December 31, 1993 reflects an increase of $1.5 million which is related to
the increase in the corporate tax rate from 34.0% to 35.0% enacted by the
Revenue Reconciliation Act of 1993.

Deferred income taxes reflect the net tax effects of temporary differences
between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial
reporting purposes and the related amounts used for income tax purposes.

</TABLE>

At December 31, 1994, the Company has net operating loss carryforwards of
approximately $2.7 billion for income tax purposes that will expire from
1995 through 2009 and investment tax credit carryforwards of approximately
$44.7 million that will expire through 2001.  As a result of the change in
ownership of the Company on April 27, 1993, the ultimate utilization of the
Company's net operating losses and investment tax credits could be limited.

For financial reporting purposes, a valuation allowance of $844.2 million
has been recognized to offset the deferred tax assets related to a portion
of those carryforwards.  The Company has considered prudent and feasible
tax planning strategies in assessing the need for the valuation allowance. 
The Company has assumed $194 million of benefit attributable to such tax
planning strategies.  In the event the Company were to determine in the
future that any such tax planning strategies would not be implemented, an
adjustment to the deferred tax liability would be charged to income in the
period such determination was made.  In the event the Company recognizes
additional tax benefits related to net operating loss carryforwards and
investment tax credit carryforwards attributable to the Predecessor
Company, those benefits would be applied to reduce Reorganization Value in
Excess of Amounts Allocable to Identifiable Assets and other intangibles to
zero, and thereafter as an addition to paid-in capital.

The deferred tax valuation allowance increased from $667.3 million at
December 31, 1993 to $844.2 million at December 31, 1994.  This increase is
related to deferred tax assets associated with certain nonrecurring charges
and net operating losses that may not be realizable.

Approximately $545 million of the Company's net operating losses can only
be used to offset the separate parent company taxable income of Continental
Airlines, Inc.  Approximately  $17.8 million of the Company's investment
tax credits can only be used to offset the separate parent company tax
liability of Continental Airlines, Inc.

NOTE 12 - NONRECURRING CHARGES

During the fourth quarter of 1994, the Company recorded a nonrecurring
charge of approximately $446.8 million associated primarily with (i) the
planned early retirement of certain aircraft and (ii) closed or
underutilized airport and maintenance facilities and other assets.

Approximately $278 million of the nonrecurring charge was associated with
the planned early retirement during 1995 of 24 widebody jet aircraft
(21 Airbus A300s and three Boeing 747s), 23 narrowbody Boeing 727 jet
aircraft and five Dash 7 turboprop aircraft, including a provision for the
disposal of the related inventory.  All of these aircraft (except for two
owned Airbus A300 aircraft) have remaining lease obligations beyond the
planned retirement dates for such aircraft.  The $278 million charge
represents the Company's best estimate of the expected loss based upon,
among other things, the anticipated resolution of negotiations with certain
lessors as well as anticipated sublease rental income of certain aircraft
and engines.  To the extent the actual resolution of the negotiations,
actual sublease rental income or other events or amounts vary from the
Company's estimates, the actual charge could be different from the amount
estimated.

Approximately $168.8 million of the nonrecurring charge was associated with
the closure of the LAX maintenance facility, underutilized airport
facilities and other assets (primarily associated with DIA).  This portion
of the charge relates to the Company's contractual obligations under the
related lease agreements and the write-off of related leasehold
improvements, less an estimated amount for sublease rental income. 
However, should actual sublease rental income be different from the
Company's estimates, the actual charge could be different from the amount
estimated.

Approximately $324.2 million of the nonrecurring charge represents an
actual cash outlay to be incurred over the remaining lease terms (of from
one to 15 years) and approximately $122.6 million represents a noncash
charge associated with a write-down of certain assets (principally
inventory and flight equipment) to expected net realizable value. 
Continental expects to finance the cash outlays primarily with internally
generated funds.

NOTE 13 - COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

Capital Commitments

On March 31, 1995, the Company signed agreements with Boeing and certain
engine manufacturers that would defer certain aircraft and engine
deliveries that previously were scheduled to occur in 1996 and 1997, to
cancel orders for certain option aircraft and to obtain refunds of deposits
corresponding to the revised delivery schedule.

Continental has firm commitments to take delivery of 22 new 737 and five
new 757 aircraft in 1995, one new 757 aircraft in 1996 and 43 new jet
aircraft during the years 1998 through 2002.  The estimated aggregate cost
of these aircraft is approximately $3.4 billion.  In December 1994, Express
contracted with Beech Acceptance Corporation ("Beech") for the purchase and
financing of 25 Beech 1900-D aircraft at an estimated aggregate cost of
$104 million, excluding price escalations.  Deliveries of the Beech
aircraft are scheduled in 1995 and 1996.  As of December 31, 1994,
Continental had made deposits on jet and turboprop aircraft orders of
approximately $166.1 million.

Continental expects its 1995 capital expenditures, exclusive of aircraft,
to aggregate approximately $83 million primarily relating to aircraft
modifications, passenger terminal facility improvements and office,
maintenance, telecommunications and ground equipment.

See Note 1 for a discussion of debt and operating lease obligations in
default.  See Note 6 for a discussion of Continental's contingent liability
on long-term lease obligations.

Legal Proceedings

In 1992, the Company agreed to lease (i) 20 gates at DIA for a period of
five years from the date DIA opened, (ii) four of such gates for an
additional five years and (iii) a substantial amount of operational space
in connection with the gates and for the terms set forth in the agreement. 
During 1994, the Company significantly reduced its Denver operations.  The
City filed a complaint on February 22, 1995 against the Company in the
United States District Court for the District of Colorado seeking a
determination that the Company materially breached and repudiated the lease
and a March 1994 agreement to pay certain costs associated with the delays
in opening DIA.  In addition, the City sought a judgment declaring the
City's rights and the Company's obligations and the award of an injunction
that the Company perform such obligations.  The City also sought attorneys
fees and costs relating to its suit.  The Company believes it has defenses
against the City, as well as claims against the City that justify
rescission of the lease or, if rescission is not awarded by the court, a
substantial reduction in the Company's obligations thereunder.

The Company, the City and certain other parties have entered into an
agreement ("Settlement") that was approved by the Denver City Council on
April 10, 1995.  The Settlement provides for the release of certain claims
and the settlement of certain litigation filed by the City against the
Company and reduces (i) the full term of the lease to five years, subject
to certain rights of renewal granted to Continental, (ii) the number of
gates leased from 20 to 10, (iii) the amount of leased operational and
other space by approximately 70%.  The reduced gates and operational space
exceed Continental's current needs at the airport, and the Company is
negotiating with America West Airlines, Inc. ("America West") and Frontier
Airlines to sublease up to five of its remaining gates and certain
operational space.  The Company will attempt to sublease additional
facilities and operational space as well.  To the extent Continental is
able to sublease any of its gates and operational space, its costs under
the lease would be reduced.  

The Settlement may still be challenged by certain parties, including by
other air carriers, and the Company cannot predict what the outcome of any
such challenge would be.  Certain air carriers have taken the position that
an insufficient number of carriers have executed the Settlement.  Failure
to implement the Settlement could reduce or eliminate the Company's
estimated savings at DIA.

Certain parties continue to seek recovery for claims that were subject to
the Company's Plan of Reorganization.  For the most part, if such parties
were successful on their claims, their recovery would be limited to the
fixed pools of Company common stock and cash provided for in the Plan of
Reorganization.  Nevertheless, certain claims, if successful, could result
in additional obligations being imposed upon the Company, including the
possible indemnification of certain current and former officers and
directors of the Company or its former parent.  In addition, the Company is
a party to certain lawsuits, and the subject of certain claims, which arose
after the Company's bankruptcy proceedings were commenced and in the
ordinary course of the Company's business.  Although the amount sought in
certain of these claims and proceedings is substantial, the Company cannot
at this time reasonably estimate the possible loss or range of loss that
could be experienced if any of the claims were successful.  However, the
Company believes that the resolution of these matters is unlikely to have a
material adverse effect on the Company.

NOTE 14 - RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

The following is a summary of significant related party transactions which
have occurred during 1994 and the period April 28, 1993 through
December 31, 1993 other than those discussed elsewhere in the Notes to
Consolidated Financial Statements.

CMI and United Micronesia Development Association, Inc. ("UMDA"), the
minority stockholder of CMI, have a services agreement whereby UMDA is paid
a fee for certain services, which fee approximates 1.0% of CMI's revenues. 
For the year ended December 31, 1994 and the period April 28, 1993 through
December 31, 1993, these fees totaled approximately $4.8 million and
$3.5 million, respectively.  As of December 31, 1994 and 1993, the Company
had a payable to UMDA totaling approximately $7.2 million and $7.3 million,
respectively.  The payable bears interest at 12.0% per annum and matures in
2011.  Annual principal and interest payments on the payable aggregating
$1,000,000 per year are applied to reduce the 1.0% fee.

In connection with AC's investment in the Company, AC, AP and the Company
agreed to identify and pursue opportunities to achieve cost savings,
revenue enhancement or other synergies from areas of joint operation
between the Company and AC.  The Company and AC have entered into a series
of synergies agreements, primarily in the areas of aircraft maintenance and
commercial and marketing alliances (including agreements regarding
coordination of connecting flights).  The Company believes that the
synergies agreements allocate potential benefits to the Company and AC in a
manner that is equitable and commercially reasonable, and contain terms at
least as favorable to the Company as could be obtained from unrelated
parties.  As a result of these agreements, Continental paid AC
$29.1 million and $9 million for the year ended December 31, 1994 and from
the period April 28, 1993 through December 31, 1993, respectively,
primarily relating to aircraft maintenance.  Continental also reimbursed AC
and AP in 1993 for fees incurred in connection with their investment in
Continental of $6.9 million and $11.1 million, respectively.

GE Capital and General Electric Company, owner of 171,000 shares of the
Company's 8% Preferred Stock, provide certain services to Continental such
as repairing engines and the leasing of certain aircraft.  Continental also
has loans payable to GE Capital.  See Note 5.

Under the amended agreements with GE Capital, if Air Partners disposes of
any of its Class A shares, Continental must prepay deferred amounts
totaling approximately $146 million and, at Continental's election, either
(i) prepay loans totaling $150 million or (ii) pledge its Air Micronesia,
Inc. stock as collateral for all GE Capital obligations.

The Company and America West have entered into a series of agreements
during 1994 related to code-sharing and ground handling.  The services
provided are considered normal to the daily operations of both airlines. 
As a result of these agreements, Continental paid America West $0.5 million
in 1994.

</TABLE>

During the third quarter of 1994, the Company recorded a favorable
adjustment of $23.4 million as a result of the Company's estimate of awards
expected to be redeemed for travel on Continental under its frequent flyer
program.

During the fourth quarter of 1994, nonrecurring charges of approximately
$446.8 million were recorded for costs associated with grounding aircraft,
reducing operations at certain airport facilities and modifying certain
aircraft and facilities lease agreements.

During the first quarter of 1993, reorganization-related charges of
$11.6 million were partially offset by interest income of $3.1 million.

During the second quarter of 1993, the Company recorded a gain of
$34.9 million related to System One's sale to EDS of substantially all of
the assets of its Airline Services Division.  In addition, reorganization-
related charges of $234.2 million were recorded.  Fresh start adjustments
totaling $719.1 million were recorded relating to the adjustment of assets
and liabilities to fair market value as well as other miscellaneous fresh
start adjustments of approximately $76.8 million.  These fresh start
adjustments were partially offset by the write-off of deferred gains on
sale/leaseback transactions of $218.6 million.  The Company recorded an
extraordinary gain of approximately $3.6 billion resulting from the
extinguishment of prepetition obligations, including the write-off of a
deferred credit related to Eastern of approximately $1.1 billion.

During the third quarter of 1993, the Company recorded nonoperating charges
totaling approximately $13.1 million related to the Company's termination
of services to Australia and New Zealand and other expenses primarily
related to the abandonment of airport facilities.  Also included in
passenger revenues is $75 million recorded as a result of completion of the
Company's periodic evaluation of its air traffic liability account.

Reorganization Under the Bankruptcy Code", which resulted in adjustments to
the Company's common stockholders' equity and the carrying values of assets
and liabilities.  Accordingly, the Parent Company only post-reorganization
balance sheets and statements of operations have not been prepared on a
consistent basis of accounting with the Parent Company only pre-
reorganization balance sheet and statements of operations.  See Note 3 of

and payable on such Deferred Principal Payment Date shall instead
be repaid in accordance with Section 2.1(c) of the Loan
Agreement, as amended by this Amendment.

          SECTION 2.  Amendments to Loan Agreement.  The Loan
Agreement is hereby amended as follows:

          (a)  Section 1 is hereby amended as follows:

               (i)  by deleting the definition of the term
     "Disposition" in its entirety and substituting the following
     new definition in lieu therefor:

                    "'Disposition' shall mean any sale,
          transfer, assignment, conveyance or other
          disposition.";

              (ii)  by deleting the definition of the term
     "Disposition Notice" in its entirety;

             (iii)  by inserting in the definition of the term
     "Eligible Assignee" before the first reference therein to
     "any Person" the reference to "GE Capital, Societe Nationale
     d'Etude et de Construction de Moteurs D'Aviation, MTU
     Motoren-und Turbinen-Union Munchen, GmbH, any of their
     respective Subsidiaries or Affiliates, or";

              (iv)  by deleting in the definition of the term
     "Lender" the reference therein to "by Section 8.1(a)(i) or
     8.1(a)(ii)" and substituting the reference to "hereunder" in
     lieu therefor; and

               (v)  by inserting the following new definitions in
     proper alphabetical order:

                    "'CMI Deferred Amount' shall mean the
          aggregate amount of all principal payments
          deferred in accordance with the terms of Section 1
          of the Waiver, Consent and Amendment."

                    "'CMI Deferred Date' shall mean
          December 31, 1996."

                    "'CMI LIBOR Rate' shall mean the average
          of the four rates, reported from time to time by
          Telerate News Service (or such other number of
          rates as such service may from time to time
          report), at which foreign branches of major United
          States banks offer United States dollar deposits
          to other banks for a 90-day period in the London
          interbank market at approximately 11:00 a.m.,
          London time, on the second full Eurodollar
          Business Day next preceding each Interest Payment
          Date set forth on Schedule 2.1 attached hereto
          during which any CMI Deferred Amount is to be
          outstanding (unless such Interest Payment Date is
          not a Business Day, in which event such interest
          rates shall be determined two Eurodollar Business
          Days prior to the Business Day next succeeding
          such Interest Payment Date).  If such interest
          rates shall cease to be available from Telerate
          News Service, the CMI LIBOR Rate shall be
          determined from such financial reporting service
          or other information as shall be mutually
          acceptable to Agent and Borrower.  Such CMI LIBOR
          Rate, as determined above, will remain in effect
          with respect to any outstanding CMI Deferred
          Amount to but not including the next Interest
          Payment Date, after which the CMI LIBOR Rate
          determined in accordance with the prior two
          sentences shall be in effect."

          the meaning set forth in Section 1 of the Waiver,
          Consent and Amendment."

          whole or in part without any prepayment penalty."

          (e)  Section 2.5 is hereby amended as follows:

          (i)  by deleting the words "on the average outstanding

          WHEREAS, Borrower and Lender are parties to that

          WHEREAS, Borrower, together with Continental Express,

          WHEREAS, Lender has agreed so to amend and waive, as
the case may be, certain provisions of the Loan Agreement upon
the terms and subject to the conditions provided herein;

          NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises,
covenants and agreements contained herein, the parties hereto
hereby agree as follows:

          SECTION 1.  Waiver and Consent.  The obligation of
Borrower to make any principal payment of the Loan due and
payable as set forth in Section 2.1(c) of the Loan Agreement on
any Interest Payment Date during the period from January 1, 1995
through December 31, 1996 (a "Deferred Principal Payment Date")
is hereby waived and each such principal payment otherwise due
and payable on such Deferred Principal Payment Date shall instead
be repaid in accordance with Section 2.1(c) of the Loan
Agreement, as amended by this Amendment [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL
OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE
COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT]

          SECTION 2.  Amendments to Loan Agreement.  The Loan
Agreement is hereby amended as follows:

          (a)  Section 1 is hereby amended as follows:

               (i)  by inserting in the definition of the
     term "Net Sales Proceeds" after each reference therein
     to "Asset Sale" the reference to "Equity Issuance, Debt
     Issuance or Stock Sale, as the case may be,"; and

              (ii)  by inserting the following new
     definitions in proper alphabetical order:

                    "'B-1 Deferred Amount' shall mean the
          aggregate amount of all principal payments
          deferred in accordance with the terms of Section 1
          of the Waiver, Consent and Amendment. "

                    "'B-1 Deferred Date' shall mean
          December 31, 1996."

                    "'B-1 LIBOR Rate' shall mean the average
          of the four rates, reported from time to time by
          Telerate News Service (or such other number of
          rates as such service may from time to time
          report), at which foreign branches of major United
          States banks offer United States dollar deposits
          to other banks for a 90-day period in the London
          interbank market at approximately 11:00 a.m.,
          London time, on the second full Eurodollar
          Business Day next preceding each Interest Payment
          Date set forth on Schedule 2.1 attached hereto
          during which any B-1 Deferred Amount is to be
          outstanding (unless such Interest Payment Date is
          not a Business Day, in which event such interest
          rates shall be determined two Eurodollar Business
          Days prior to the Business Day next succeeding
          such Interest Payment Date).  If such interest
          rates shall cease to be available from Telerate
          News Service, the B-1 LIBOR Rate shall be
          determined from such financial reporting service
          or other information as shall be mutually
          acceptable to Lender and Borrower.  Such B-1 LIBOR
          Rate, as determined above, will remain in effect
          with respect to any outstanding B-1 Deferred
          Amount to but not including the next Interest
          Payment Date, after which the B-1 LIBOR Rate
          determined in accordance with the prior two
          sentences shall be in effect."

          exchange transactions."

          as of March 30, 1995, among Borrower, Continental
          Express, Inc., GE Capital, General Electric

          WHEREAS, Lender has agreed so to amend and waive, as
the case may be, certain provisions of the Loan Agreement upon
the terms and subject to the conditions provided herein;

          NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises,
covenants and agreements contained herein, the parties hereto
hereby agree as follows:

          SECTION 1.  Waiver and Consent.  The obligation of
Borrower to make any principal payment of the Loan due and
payable as set forth in Section 2.1(c) of the Loan Agreement on
any Interest Payment Date during the period from January 1, 1995
through December 31, 1996 (a "Deferred Principal Payment Date")

be repaid in accordance with Section 2.1(c) of the Loan
Agreement, as amended by this Amendment [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL
OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE
COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT]

          SECTION 2.  Amendments to Loan Agreement.  The Loan
Agreement is hereby amended as follows:

          (a)  Section 1 is hereby amended as follows:

               (i)  by inserting in the definition of the
     term "Net Sales Proceeds" after each reference therein
     to "Asset Sale" the reference to "Equity Issuance, Debt
     Issuance or Stock Sale, as the case may be,"; and

              (ii)  by inserting the following new defini-
     tions in proper alphabetical order:

                    "'B-2 Deferred Amount' shall mean the
          aggregate amount of all principal payments
          deferred in accordance with the terms of Section 1
          of the Waiver, Consent and Amendment. "

                    "'B-2 Deferred Date' shall mean
          December 31, 1996."

                    "'B-2 LIBOR Rate' shall mean the average
          of the four rates, reported from time to time by
          Telerate News Service (or such other number of
          rates as such service may from time to time
          report), at which foreign branches of major United
          States banks offer United States dollar deposits
          to other banks for a 90-day period in the London
          interbank market at approximately 11:00 a.m.,
          London time, on the second full Eurodollar
          Business Day next preceding each Interest Payment
          Date set forth on Schedule 2.1 attached hereto
          during which any B-2 Deferred Amount is to be
          outstanding (unless such Interest Payment Date is
          not a Business Day, in which event such interest
          rates shall be determined two Eurodollar Business
          Days prior to the Business Day next succeeding
          such Interest Payment Date).  If such interest
          rates shall cease to be available from Telerate
          News Service, the B-2 LIBOR Rate shall be
          determined from such financial reporting service
          or other information as shall be mutually accept-
          able to Lender and Borrower.  Such B-2 LIBOR Rate,
          as determined above, will remain in effect with
          respect to any outstanding B-2 Deferred Amount to
          but not including the next Interest Payment Date,
          after which the B-2 LIBOR Rate determined in
          accordance with the prior two sentences shall be
          in effect."

               of the Closing Date or, with respect to the
               Consolidation Deferred Amount, January 1, 2005, or

               (including the Consolidation Deferred Amount) are
               accelerated by Agent pursuant to the terms of
               Section 9.2 hereof."

          ments deferred in accordance with the terms of
          Section 1 of the Waiver, Consent and Amendment. 
          For the avoidance of doubt, any Consolidation
          Deferred Amount shall be a Loan hereunder for all
          purposes, including without limitation, Section
          2.6 hereof."

                    "'Consolidation Deferred Date' shall

          United States banks offer United States dollar
          deposits to other banks for a 90-day period in the
          London interbank market at approximately 11:00
          a.m., London time, on the second full Eurodollar
          Business Day next preceding each Payment Date set
          forth on Schedule 2.1 attached hereto during which
          any Consolidation Deferred Amount is to be
          outstanding (unless such Payment Date is not a
          Business Day, in which event such interest rates
          shall be determined two Eurodollar Business Days
          prior to the Business Day next succeeding such
          Payment Date).  If such interest rates shall cease
          to be available from Telerate News Service, the
          Consolidation LIBOR Rate shall be determined from
          such financial reporting service or other informa-
          tion as shall be mutually acceptable to Agent and
          Borrower.  Such Consolidation LIBOR Rate, as
          determined above, will remain in effect with
          respect to any outstanding Consolidation Deferred
          Amount to but not including the next Payment Date,
          after which the Consolidation LIBOR Rate
          determined in accordance with the prior two
          sentences shall be in effect."

          Agent or the Consolidation Collateral Agent under the

          the other Loan Documents, Borrower shall fail
          to make any payment when due, taking into
          account applicable cure periods, if any
          (whether by scheduled maturity, required
          prepayment, acceleration, demand or
          otherwise) on any Indebtedness owed by
          Borrower to GE Capital or any of its
          Affiliates; or any such Indebtedness shall be
          declared to be due and payable or required to

lieu thereof:

               "10.23  (a)  Each Holder may sell, transfer,
          assign or negotiate all or a portion of any Loan
          owing to it and any Note held by it and a commen-
          surate portion of its rights and obligations here-
          under and under the other Loan Documents; pro-
          vided, however, that (i) each such assignment
          shall be of a constant, and not a varying percen-
          tage of all of the assigning Holder's rights and
          obligations under this Agreement, (ii) each
          assignee hereunder shall also be a Holder or an
          Eligible Assignee, (iii) each such sale, transfer
          or assignment shall be in an aggregate principal
          amount of not less than $5,000,000 and (iv) no
          such assignment may result in the Notes being
          beneficially owned by more than 15 Persons in the
          aggregate.  As part of any sales or assignments
          (other than participations), the parties to each
          sale or assignment shall execute and deliver to
          Agent, for its acceptance and recording, an
          Assignment and Acceptance, together with the Note
          subject to such assignment.  Upon such execution,
          delivery, acceptance and recording, from and after
          the effective date specified in the applicable
          Assignment and Acceptance, (1) the assignee
          thereunder shall be deemed a party hereto and, to
          the extent that rights and obligations under the
          Loan Documents have been assigned to it pursuant
          to such Assignment and Acceptance, have the rights
          and obligations of a Holder hereunder and there-
          under, as the case may be, and (2) the assignor
          thereunder shall, to the extent that rights and
          obligations under this Agreement have been
          assigned by it pursuant to such Assignment and
          Acceptance, relinquish its rights and be released
          from its obligations under the Loan Documents
          (and, in the case of an Assignment and Acceptance
          covering all or the remaining portion of an
          assigning Holder's rights and obligations under
          the Loan Documents, such Holder shall cease to
          have any rights hereunder or under the other Loan
          Documents).

               (b)  By executing and delivering an
          Assignment and Acceptance in accordance with
          Section 10.23(a), the assigning Holder and the
          assignee thereunder confirm to and agree with each
          other and the other parties hereto as follows: 
          (i) other than as provided in such Assignment and
          Acceptance, such assigning Holder makes no repre-
          sentation or warranty and assumes no responsibil-
          ity with respect to any statements, warranties or
          representations made in or in connection with any
          Loan Document or the execution, legality, valid-
          ity, enforceability, genuineness, sufficiency or
          value of any Loan Document or any other instrument
          or document furnished pursuant hereto or thereto;
          (ii) such assigning Holder makes no representation
          or warranty and assumes no responsibility with
          respect to the financial condition of any Loan
          Party or the performance or observance by any Loan
          Party of any of its obligations under any Loan
          Document or of any other instrument or document
          furnished pursuant hereto or thereto; (iii) such
          assignee confirms that it has received a copy of
          each Loan Document, together with copies of the
          financial statements referred to in Section 4.5 of
          this Agreement and such other documents and infor-
          mation as it has deemed appropriate to make its
          own credit analysis and decision to enter into
          such Assignment and Acceptance; (iv) such assignee
          will, independently and without reliance upon such
          assigning Holder or any other Holder or Agent and
          based on such documents and information as it
          shall deem appropriate at the time, continue to
          make its own credit decision in taking or not
          taking action under this Agreement or any Loan
          Document; (v) such assignee confirms that it is an
          Eligible Assignee or a Holder; (vi) such assignee
          appoints and authorizes Agent to take such action
          as agent on its behalf and to exercise such powers
          under the Loan Documents as are delegated to Agent
          by the terms hereof, together with such powers as
          are reasonably incidental thereto; and (vii) such
          assignee agrees that it will perform in accordance
          with their terms all of the obligations which by
          the terms of the Loan Documents are required to be
          performed by it as a Holder.

               (c)  Upon its receipt of an Assignment and
          Acceptance executed by an assigning Holder and an
          Eligible Assignee or a Holder, together with the
          Note subject to such assignment, Agent shall, if
          such Assignment and Acceptance has been completed,
          (i) accept such Assignment and Acceptance,
          (ii) record the information contained therein in
          the Register and (iii) give prompt notice thereof
          to Borrower.  Within ten Business Days after its
          receipt of such notice, Borrower, at its own
          expense, shall execute and deliver to Agent, in
          exchange for such surrendered Note, a new Note
          made payable to such Eligible Assignee or its
          registered assigns in an amount equal to the
          interest in the Loan assumed by it pursuant to
          such Assignment and Acceptance and, if the assign-
          ing Holder has retained an interest in the Loan, a
          new Note made payable to the assigning Holder or
          its registered assigns in an amount equal to the
          interest in the Loan retained by it hereunder. 
          Such new Note shall be dated the effective date of
          such Assignment and Acceptance and shall otherwise
          be in substantially the form of Exhibit O hereto.

               (d)  Each Holder may sell participations to
          one or more banks or other entities in or to all
          or a portion of its rights and obligations under
          the Loan Documents (including, without limitation,
          all or a portion of any Loan owing to it and any
          Note held by it).  The terms of such participation
          shall not, in any event, require the participant's
          consent to (i) any amendments, waivers or other
          modifications of any provision of any Loan
          Documents, or (ii) the consent to any departure by
          any Loan Party therefrom, or to the exercising or
          refraining from exercising any powers or rights
          which such Holder may have under or in respect of
          the Loan Documents (including, without limitation,
          the right to enforce the obligations of the Loan
          Parties), except if any such amendment, waiver or
          other modification or consent would (i) reduce the
          amount, or postpone any date fixed for, any amount
          (whether of principal or interest) payable to such
          participant under the Loan Documents, to which
          such participant would otherwise be entitled under
          such participation or (ii) result in the release
          of all or substantially all of the Collateral
          other than in accordance with the Collateral
          Documents.  In the event of the sale of any par-
          ticipation by any Holder, (i) each Loan Party's
          obligations under the Loan Documents shall remain
          unchanged, and no Loan Party shall incur any
          expense as a result thereof, (ii) such Holder's
          obligations under the Loan Documents shall remain
          unchanged, (iii) such Holder shall remain solely
          responsible to the other parties hereto for the
          performance of such obligations, (iv) such Holder
          shall remain the holder of such Notes and
          Obligations for all purposes of this Agreement,
          and (v) Borrower, Agent and the other Holders
          shall continue to deal solely and directly with
          such Holder in connection with such Holder's
          rights and obligations under this Agreement.

               (e)  Subject to the provisions of Section
          10.15 hereof, any Holder may, in connection with
          any assignment or participation or proposed
          assignment or participation pursuant to this
          Section 10.23, disclose to the assignee or
          participant or proposed assignee or participant
          any information relating to any Loan Party,
          furnished to such Holder by or on behalf of such
          Loan Party."

          (l)  Section 10.24 is hereby amended by inserting the
following new sentences at the end thereof:

          "The entries in the Registry shall be conclusive and
          binding for all purposes, absent manifest error, and
          the Loan Parties, Agent and Holders may treat each
          Person whose name is recorded in the Registry as a
          Holder for all purposes of this Agreement.  The
          Registry shall be available for inspection by Borrower,
          Agent or any Holder at any reasonable time and from
          time to time upon reasonable prior notice."

          SECTION 3.  Amendments to Exhibits and Schedules to
Loan Agreement.  (a) Exhibit A hereto is added as new Exhibit S
to the Loan Agreement. 

          (b)  Schedule 2.1 to the Loan Agreement is hereby
deleted in its entirety and Schedule 2.1 hereto is added as a new
Schedule 2.1 in lieu thereof.

          SECTION 4.  Limited Waiver.  Agent hereby waives
Borrower's compliance with the provisions of Sections 6.15(b) and
(c) of the Loan Agreement for the period from the date hereof
through June 30, 1995.

          SECTION 5.  Effective Date.  This Amendment shall
become effective upon the Restructuring Date (as such term is
defined in the Restructuring Agreement).

          SECTION 6.  Miscellaneous.  (a)  Upon the effectiveness
of this Amendment, on and after the date hereof, each reference

Agreement," "hereunder," "hereof," "herein," or words of like
import, shall mean and be a reference to the Loan Agreement as
amended hereby.

          (b)  Except as specifically amended herein, the Loan
Agreement and all of the other Loan Documents shall remain in
full force and effect and are hereby ratified and confirmed. 
Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Borrower hereby
confirms that all of its obligations under the Collateral
Documents shall continue and shall remain in full force and
effect.

          (c)  The execution, delivery and effectiveness of this
Amendment shall not, except as expressly provided herein, operate
as a waiver of any right, power or remedy of Holders or Agent
under any of the Loan Documents, nor constitute a waiver of any
provision of any of the Loan Documents.

          (d)  This Amendment may be executed in any number of
separate counterparts, each of which shall, collectively and
separately, constitute one agreement.

          (e)  The Section titles contained in this Amendment are

whatsoever and are not part of the agreement among the parties
hereto.

          (f)  Except as otherwise expressly provided in any of
the Loan Documents, in all respects, including all matters of
construction, validity and performance, this Amendment shall be
governed by, and construed and enforced in accordance with, the
laws of the State of New York, without regard to the principles
thereof regarding conflicts of law, and any applicable laws of
the United States.  Agent and Borrower agree to submit to per-
sonal jurisdiction, to the extent permitted by law, and to waive
any objection as to venue in the County of New York, State of New
York.  To the extent permitted by law, service of process on
Borrower or Agent in any action arising out of or relating to
this Amendment shall be effective if mailed to such party at the

herein shall preclude Agent or Borrower from bringing suit or
taking other legal action in any other jurisdiction.

          (g)  To the extent permitted by law, the parties hereto
waive all right to trial by jury in any action or proceeding to
enforce or defend any rights under this Amendment.

          IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have caused this
Amendment to be executed by their respective officers thereunto
duly authorized, as of the date first above written.

Agreement or the B-2 Loan Agreement, for so long as the GE
Parties hold 66 2/3% in principal amount of the Notes issued
under either the B-1 Loan Agreement or the B-2 Loan
Agreement (as defined in such agreements) or a majority in
principal amount of the Notes issued under the Consolidation
Loan Agreement (as defined in such agreement), as the case
may be, it shall be obligated to comply with the covenants
contained on Schedule 7.01, and the failure by Continental
to comply with any of such covenants shall, subject to the
grace periods and notice provisions contained in Section
9.1(c) of the B-1 Loan Agreement, B-2 Loan Agreement or
Consolidation Loan Agreement, respectively, constitute an
Event of Default under the B-1 Loan Agreement, the B-2 Loan
Agreement or the Consolidation Loan Agreement, respectively. 
Each of the GE Parties agrees that compliance with the
covenants set forth on Schedule 7.01 may be enforced or
waived solely by it, and it shall not enter into any
agreement or make any commitment to any other Person with
respect to the enforcement or waiver of such covenants.

Capital agrees, in connection with any agreements
Continental may enter into in connection with the redelivery
of aircraft to lessors, to consent to the grant of a Lien on
B-1 Collateral or B-2 Collateral reasonably acceptable to GE
Capital, subordinate to the Lien of the B-1 Collateral Agent
on the B-1 Collateral or the B-2 Collateral Agent on the B-2
Collateral, in form and substance and pursuant to
documentation reasonably satisfactory to GE Capital (which

from foreclosing upon, or otherwise exercising rights with
respect to, such Collateral), to secure Continental's
obligations to such lessors under such agreements.

          (b)  GE Capital agrees to consent to an amendment
to the certificate of incorporation of Continental, in form
and substance reasonably satisfactory to it, which amendment
would provide for the amendment to the terms of the Air
Canada Preferred Stock and the GE Capital Preferred Stock to
provide that dividends payable on such preferred stock
during the period from March 1, 1995 to February 28, 1997
shall be paid only in additional shares of such preferred
stock.


                        ARTICLE VIII

                  INTEREST RATE PROTECTION

          Section 8.01.  Interest Rate Protection.  So long
as any Deferred Amounts (other than the A-300 Obligations)
remain outstanding, Continental may request that GE Capital
provide it with interest rate cap agreements or other
substantially similar agreements or arrangements
satisfactory to GE Capital (each an "Interest Rate
Agreement") which would provide Continental with a maximum
LIBOR Rate not to exceed 8% on any or all of the Deferred
Amounts (other than the A-300 Obligations) for the remaining
term of such obligations so long as the aggregate cost of
such Interest Rate Agreements does not exceed $5 million.

          Section 8.02.  Procedure.  Any request by
Continental pursuant to Section 8.01 shall indicate the
notional amount of the Interest Rate Agreement to be
provided (which notional amount shall not exceed the maximum
principal amount of the Deferred Amount for which the
Interest Rate Agreement is being requested), the term of
such interest rate protection and the type of Interest Rate
Agreement being requested.  GE Capital will, within five
Business Days of having received such request, notify
Continental of the cost of such Interest Rate Agreement.  If
Continental accepts such offer, then, so long as no Event of
Default (as defined in each of the CMI Loan Agreement, the
B-1 Loan Agreement, the B-2 Loan Agreement or the
Consolidation Loan Agreement) shall have occurred and be
continuing, GE Capital shall promptly provide Continental
with a draft Interest Rate Agreement and an amendment to the
underlying documentation increasing the principal amount of
such Deferred Amount by the cost of such Interest Rate
Agreement.  GE Capital shall have no obligation to execute
any Interest Rate Agreement unless and until Continental
shall have executed an amendment evidencing the additional
obligation.

                          ARTICLE X

               REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES

          To induce the GE Parties to enter into this
Agreement and the other Restructuring Documents, Continental
makes the following representations and warranties to such
GE Parties, each and all of which shall be true and correct
as of the date of execution and delivery of this Agreement,
and shall survive the execution and delivery of this
Agreement:

          Section 10.01.  Corporate Existence; Compliance
with Law.  Continental and each of its Subsidiaries (other
than the Excluded Subsidiaries) (i) is a corporation duly
organized, validly existing and in good standing under the
laws of the state of its incorporation; (ii) is duly
qualified as a foreign corporation and in good standing
under the laws of each jurisdiction where its ownership or
lease of property or the conduct of its business requires
such qualification (except for jurisdictions in which such
failure to so qualify or to be in good standing would not
have a Material Adverse Effect); (iii) has the requisite
corporate power and authority to own, pledge, mortgage or
otherwise encumber and operate its properties, to lease the
property it operates under lease, and to conduct its
business as now conducted and as proposed to be conducted
immediately after the Restructuring Date; (iv) has, or by
the Restructuring Date will have, all licenses, permits,
consents or approvals from or by, and has made all filings
with, and has given all notices to, all Governmental
Authorities having jurisdiction, to the extent required for
such ownership, operation and current conduct except where
the failure to so obtain or comply would not have a Material
Adverse Effect; (v) is in compliance with its certificate or
articles of incorporation and by-laws; and (vi) is in
compliance with all applicable provisions of law where the
failure to comply would have a Material Adverse Effect.

          Section 10.02.  Executive Offices.  The current
location of Continental's and each of its Subsidiaries'
(other than the Excluded Subsidiaries) executive offices and
principal places of business are set forth on Schedule 10.02
hereto.

          Section 10.03.  Subsidiaries.  There are no
Subsidiaries of Continental other than as set forth on
Schedule 10.03 hereto.  Schedule 10.03 sets forth such
Subsidiaries (other than the Excluded Subsidiaries),
together with their respective jurisdictions of
organization, and the authorized and outstanding Stock of
each such Subsidiary, by class and number and percentage of
each class legally owned by Continental or any of its
Subsidiaries (other than the Excluded Subsidiaries) or any
other Person.  There are no options, warrants, rights to
purchase or similar rights covering, or agreements to issue
or sell, Stock of any Subsidiary (other than the Excluded
Subsidiaries), nor agreements restricting the voting or
disposition of such Stock, except for the CMI Loan Documents
(as defined in the CMI Loan Agreement) and as set forth on
Schedule 10.03.

          Section 10.04.  Corporate Power; Authorization;
Enforceable Obligations.  The execution, delivery and
performance by Continental and its Subsidiaries (other than
the Excluded Subsidiaries) of the Restructuring Documents to
be delivered by Continental and such Subsidiaries, to the
extent they are parties thereto, hereunder and thereunder,
and the creation of all Liens in favor of any GE Party
provided for herein and therein:  (i) are within
Continental's and such Subsidiaries' corporate power;
(ii) have been, or by the Restructuring Date will be, duly
authorized by all necessary corporate action; (iii) are not
in contravention of any provision of Continental's, or such
Subsidiaries' respective certificates or articles of
incorporation or by-laws; (iv) will not violate any law or
regulation or any order or decree of any court or
governmental instrumentality; (v) will not conflict with or
result in the breach or termination of, constitute a default
under or accelerate any performance required by, any
material indenture, mortgage, deed of trust, lease,
agreement or other instrument to which Continental or any of
such Subsidiaries is a party or by which Continental or any
of such Subsidiaries or any of their property is bound;
(vi) will not result in the creation or imposition of any
Lien upon any of the property of Continental or any of such
Subsidiaries other than those created pursuant to the Loan
Documents or the Restructuring Documents; and (vii) do not
require the consent or approval of any governmental body,
agency, authority or any other Person except consents and
approvals to be obtained on or prior to the Restructuring
Date and except where the failure to obtain such consents or
approvals will not have a Material Adverse Effect.  All
Regulatory Approvals and all other consents and approvals
necessary to permit Continental and its Subsidiaries (other
than the Excluded Subsidiaries) to conduct their business
operations have been or will be duly obtained on or prior to
the Restructuring Date.  At or prior to the Restructuring
Date, each of the Restructuring Documents contemplated to be
executed prior to or on the Restructuring Date shall have
been duly executed and delivered for the benefit of or on
behalf of Continental or its Subsidiaries (other than the
Excluded Subsidiaries), as the case may be, and each shall
then constitute a legal, valid and binding obligation of
Continental or its Subsidiaries, to the extent they are
parties thereto, enforceable against them in accordance with
its terms except as enforceability may be limited by
bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar laws affecting the
rights of creditors generally or by the application of
general principles of equity.

          Section 10.05.  Financial Statements.  (a)  The
draft consolidated balance sheet of Continental and its
Subsidiaries for the year ended December 31, 1994 (including
notes thereto) set forth in the draft Form 10-K for
Continental for fiscal year 1994 (the "Draft 10-K"), which
is substantially similar to the Form 10-K to be filed by
Continental with the Securities and Exchange Commission, a
copy of which has been furnished to each GE Party prior to
the date of this Agreement, presents fairly the consolidated
financial position of Continental and its consolidated
Subsidiaries at December 31, 1994.

          (b)  The audited consolidated balance sheet of
Continental as at December 31, 1993 and the related
consolidated statements of income, retained earnings and
cash flow for the year then ended, with the opinion thereon
of Ernst & Young, LLP, and the consolidated balance sheet of
Continental as at September 30, 1994 and the related
consolidated statements of income, retained earnings and
cash flow for the nine months then ended, copies of which
have been furnished to the GE Parties prior to the date of
this Agreement, have been, except as noted therein, prepared
in conformity with GAAP consistently applied throughout the
periods involved and present fairly the consolidated
financial position of Continental as at the dates thereof,
and the results of operations and cash flow for the periods
then ended, subject to year end adjustments.

          Section 10.06.  [Reserved].  

          Section 10.07.  Ownership of Property; Liens. 
(a) As of the date of this Agreement, except as disclosed in
Schedule 10.07(a), neither Continental nor any of its
Subsidiaries (excluding the AMI Companies and the Excluded
Subsidiaries) own fee simple title to any Real Estate.  All
real and personal property owned by Continental or its
Subsidiaries (excluding the AMI Companies and the Excluded
Subsidiaries) is described in Schedule 10.07(a) hereto. 
None of the properties and assets of Continental or its
Subsidiaries (excluding the AMI Companies and the Excluded
Subsidiaries) including, without limitation, the Leases, are
subject to any Liens, except Permitted Encumbrances.

          (b)  All Material Leases of Continental or its
Subsidiaries (excluding the AMI Companies and the Excluded
Subsidiaries) as of the date of this Agreement are set forth
on Schedule 10.07(b), together with information regarding
the commencement date, termination date and renewal options,
if any.  Except as set forth in the Disclosure Letter,
neither Continental nor the applicable Subsidiary nor, to
the knowledge of Continental, any other party to any such
Material Lease, is in default of its obligations thereunder
or has delivered or received any notice of default under any
such Material Lease, nor has any event occurred which, with
the giving of notice, the passage of time or both, would
constitute a default under any such Material Lease, except,
in each case, for any default which would not have a
Material Adverse Effect.

          Section 10.08.  No Default.  Except as set forth
in the Disclosure Letter, neither Continental nor any of its
Subsidiaries (other than the Excluded Subsidiaries) is in
default, nor, to Continental's knowledge, is any third party
in default, under or with respect to any contract,
agreement, lease or other instrument to which Continental or
any such Subsidiary is a party, except for any default which
(either individually or collectively with other defaults
arising out of the same event or events) would not have a
Material Adverse Effect.  No Default or Event of Default (as
defined in the B-1 Loan Agreement, the B-2 Loan Agreement,
the CMI Loan Agreement or the Consolidation Loan Agreement),
other than any default under any of the "cross default"
provisions of each such agreement, has occurred and is
continuing, after giving effect to the transactions
contemplated by the Restructuring Documents.


          Section 10.09.  Investment Company Act.  Neither
Continental nor any of its Subsidiaries (other than the
Excluded Subsidiaries) is (a) an "investment company"
required to register under the Investment Company Act of
1940, as amended, or (b) an "affiliated person" of, or
"promoter" or "principal underwriter" for, such an
"investment company," as such terms are defined in the
Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended.  The
consummation of the transactions contemplated by this
Agreement and the other Restructuring Documents will not
violate any provision of such Act or any rule, regulation or
order issued by the Securities and Exchange Commission
thereunder.

          Section 10.10.  No Litigation.  Except as set
forth in the Draft 10-K, no action, claim or proceeding is
now pending or, to the knowledge of Continental, threatened
against Continental or any of its Subsidiaries, at law, in
equity or otherwise, before any court, board, commission,
agency or instrumentality of any foreign government or any
federal, state or local government or of any agency or
subdivision thereof, or before any arbitrator or panel of
arbitrators, which is reasonably likely to have a Material
Adverse Effect.  None of the matters set forth in the Draft
10-K questions the validity of any of the Restructuring
Documents or any action taken or to be taken pursuant
thereto.

          Section 10.11.  Collateral Valuation Report.  The
Restructuring Collateral Valuation Report does not omit any
material (after taking into account any Permitted
Encumbrances thereon) item of property (other than Excluded
Property) to be owned by Continental or any of its
Subsidiaries (other than the AMI Companies or the Excluded
Subsidiaries) immediately after the Restructuring Date and
the Route valuation information contained therein accurately
reflects the conclusions and assumptions contained in the
Morten Beyer and Associates appraisals referred to therein.

          Section 10.12.  Operations.  (a)  Set forth on
Schedule 10.12(a) are true, correct and complete lists, as
of the date of this Agreement, of (i) all Slots (within the
meaning set forth in clauses (i) and (ii) of the definition
thereof) and Routes held or used by Continental or any of
its Subsidiaries (excluding the AMI Companies, System One
and the Excluded Subsidiaries) and indicating those Routes
not being used or operated by Continental or any of its
Subsidiaries (excluding the AMI Companies and the Excluded
Subsidiaries) as of the date of this Agreement and not
intended to be used or operated hereafter (such Routes being
referred to as "Dormant Routes"); and (ii) all Gates leased
by Continental or any of its Subsidiaries (excluding the AMI
Companies and the Excluded Subsidiaries) in or outside the
U.S.  Continental and its Subsidiaries (other than the
Excluded Subsidiaries) hold the Slots (within the meaning
set forth in clauses (i) and (ii) of the definition thereof)
held by them pursuant to Title 14 or equivalent foreign
regulations, subject only to the regulations of the FAA, an
equivalent foreign Governmental Authority and Permitted
Encumbrances, and each of them has, at all times after
obtaining such Slot, complied in all material respects with
all of the terms, conditions and regulations set forth in
Title 14 or any equivalent foreign regulation, including,
without limitation, the usage requirements set forth in
Section 93.227 of Title 14 or any equivalent foreign
regulation (except where noncompliance shall have been
waived by the FAA or an equivalent foreign Governmental
Authority), and there exists no material violation of such
terms, conditions and regulations that gives the FAA or any
equivalent foreign Governmental Authority the right to
terminate, cancel, withdraw or modify any such Slots.

          (b)  Each of Continental, CMI and Express is a
"citizen of the United States" as defined in Section 101(16)
of the Aviation Act.  Each of Express, CMI and Continental
is a duly certificated "air carrier" within the meaning of
the Aviation Act authorized to transport passengers,
property and mail in interstate, overseas and foreign air
transportation and is certificated under Sections 401 and
604(b) of the Aviation Act.  All such certificates or
exemptions from the requirement to possess certificates or
their foreign equivalents are in force and duly issued to
Continental, CMI or Express, as the case may be, by the DOT,
the FAA or its predecessor agency or the applicable
equivalent foreign Governmental Authority, and all material
licenses, permits, authorizations, certificates of
compliance, certificates of public convenience and necessity
and other certificates (including, without limitation, air
carrier operating certificates and operations specifications
issued by the FAA or any applicable equivalent foreign
Governmental Authority pursuant to Part 121 of the
Regulations of the FAA or equivalent foreign regulation),
which are required by the DOT and the FAA or any equivalent
foreign Governmental Authority and which are adequate for
the conduct of the business of Continental, CMI and Express
as now conducted and as proposed to be conducted immediately
after the Restructuring Date, are in full force and effect. 
There are no license fees due and payable on Continental's,
CMI's or Express' DOT or FAA licenses or their applicable
foreign equivalents.  Continental, CMI and Express are in
compliance with all material requirements of the licenses,
permits, authorizations and certificates issued to each of
them by the DOT and the FAA or any applicable equivalent
foreign Governmental Authority and none of the FAA, DOT or
any applicable equivalent foreign agency is taking any
action or, to the knowledge of Continental, considering the
taking of any action to revoke, suspend, modify or amend
such licenses, permits, authorizations or certificates which
is reasonably likely to have a Material Adverse Effect.

          (c)  Schedule 10.12(c) sets forth a true and
complete list of (i) all airframes and aircraft engines,
including serial numbers, which, to the best of
Continental's knowledge, will be operated by Continental or
its Subsidiaries (excluding the Excluded Subsidiaries)
immediately after the Restructuring Date and indicates
whether such airframes and aircraft engines will be owned or
leased and (ii) a complete list of all locations at which
Spare Parts owned and used by Continental or its
Subsidiaries (other than the Excluded Subsidiaries) in their
business are kept.

          Section 10.13.  Existing Indebtedness.  Neither
Continental nor any of its Subsidiaries (excluding the AMI
Companies, the Excluded Subsidiaries and excluding
intercompany Indebtedness) will be obligated with respect to
any Indebtedness on the Restructuring Date other than (i)
the Indebtedness described in the Draft 10-K (ii)
modification financing incurred in connection with the
modification of the aircraft owned or leased by Continental
and such Subsidiaries, (iii) deferred rental or interest
obligations incurred in connection with aircraft owned or
leased by Continental and such Subsidiaries, (iv)
Indebtedness incurred pursuant to the Restructuring
Documents and (v) Indebtedness incurred in the ordinary
course of business since December 31, 1994.

          Section 10.14.  Excluded Subsidiaries.  Each of
the Excluded Subsidiaries is an inactive corporation and
none of the Excluded Subsidiaries is engaged in the conduct
of business.  None of the Excluded Subsidiaries owns any
material assets or is obligated with respect to any
Indebtedness or liabilities other than immaterial
liabilities or liabilities that are joint and several with
Continental.

          Section 10.15. Fees.  Neither Continental nor any
of its Subsidiaries have paid any fees or other compensation
to Air Partners, or any entity controlled by, or under
common control with, Air Partners (other than director
compensation), in connection with the transactions
contemplated by this Agreement or the Restructuring Plan.

consent will not be unreasonably withheld.

          (b)  No amendment or waiver of any provision of
this Agreement or any other Restructuring Document, nor

          request of any Continental Party for any waivers,
          amendments, modifications or consents relating to
          the Restructuring Documents or any other matters
          undertaken by any GE Party and/or Relevant
          Collateral Agent, in each instance, at the request
          of any Continental Party;

              (ii)  of any GE Party and/or Relevant
          Collateral Agent in connection with any of the
          following acts which are undertaken by such GE
          Party and/or Relevant Collateral Agent in
          connection with the evaluation and enforcement of
          their remedies in connection with an Event of

          any GE Party and/or Relevant Collateral Agent of
          rights or remedies under the Restructuring
          Documents; or (C) in taking any other action in or
          with respect to any suit or proceeding (bankruptcy
          or otherwise) relating to the exercise by any GE
          Party and/or Relevant Collateral Agent of rights
          under the Restructuring Documents; and

             (iii)  of any GE Party and/or Relevant
          Collateral Agent after the occurrence and during
          the continuation of an Event of Default under any
          Loan Document, in enforcing any Obligations or in
          foreclosing against or realizing upon the
          Collateral (or any portion thereof), in attempting
          to enforce or enforcing a Lien on any of the
          Collateral or exercising or enforcing any other
          right or remedy available by reason of such Event

          its Subsidiaries or any other Person that may be
          obligated to any GE Party and/or Relevant
          Collateral Agent by virtue of any of the
          Restructuring Documents.

          The Restructuring Expenses shall be due and

and/or Relevant Collateral Agent upon any Continental Party
and shall constitute additional Obligations secured under
this Agreement and the other Restructuring Documents.

Party's failure, at any time or times, to require strict
performance by any Continental Party of any provision of

thereafter to demand strict compliance and performance
therewith.  Any suspension or waiver by any GE Party of an
Event of Default by any Continental Party under the Loan
Documents shall not suspend, waive or affect any other Event
of Default by any Continental Party under this Agreement and
any of the other Loan Documents, whether the same is prior
or subsequent thereto and whether of the same or of a
different type.  None of the undertakings, agreements,
warranties, covenants and representations of any Continental
Party contained in this Agreement or any of the other Loan
Documents and no Event of Default by any Continental Party
under this Agreement and no defaults by any Continental
Party under any of the other Loan Documents shall be deemed
to have been suspended or waived by any GE Party, unless
such suspension or waiver is by an instrument in writing,
signed by an officer of such GE Party and directed to such
Continental Party specifying such suspension or waiver.

          Section 11.04.  Remedies.  Any GE Party's rights
and remedies under this Agreement shall be cumulative and
nonexclusive of any other rights and remedies which any GE
Party may have under any other agreement, including, without
limitation, the Restructuring Documents, by operation of law
or otherwise.  Recourse to any collateral granted to any GE
Party shall not be required.

          Section 11.05.  Waiver of Jury Trial.  To the
extent permitted by applicable law, the parties hereto waive
all right to trial by jury in any action or proceeding to
enforce or defend any rights under the Restructuring
Documents.

          Section 11.06.  Severability.  Wherever possible,
each provision of this Agreement shall be interpreted in
such manner as to be effective and valid under applicable
law; but if any provision of this Agreement shall be
prohibited by or invalid under applicable law, such
provision shall be ineffective to the extent of such
prohibition or invalidity, without invalidating the
remainder of such provision or the remaining provisions of
this Agreement.

          Section 11.07.  Parties.  This Agreement and the
other Restructuring Documents shall be binding upon, and
inure to the benefit of, the successors of any Continental
Party or any GE Party and the permitted assigns, transferees
and endorsees of any GE Party or any Collateral Agent.

          Section 11.08.  Conflict of Terms.  Except as
otherwise provided in this Agreement or any of the other
Restructuring Documents by specific reference to the
applicable provisions of this Agreement, if any provision
contained in this Agreement is in conflict with, or
inconsistent with, any provision in any of the other
Restructuring Documents or Loan Documents (as defined in the
CMI Loan Agreement, the B-1 Loan Agreement, the B-2 Loan
Agreement or the Consolidation Loan Agreement), the
provision contained in this Agreement shall govern and
control.

          Section 11.09.  Consents.  Upon satisfaction of
the conditions contained in Article IX hereof, each GE Party
hereby consents to all waivers, amendments and modifications
contained in each of the Restructuring Documents to the
extent required in the underlying documents.

          Section 11.10.  Governing Law.  Except as
otherwise expressly provided in any of the Restructuring
Documents, in all respects, including all matters of

as to venue in the County of New York, State of New York. 
To the extent permitted by applicable law, service of

                                 AGREEMENT


     This Agreement is entered into on the 21st day of November, 1994,
between Continental Airlines, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the "Company"),
and Robert R. Ferguson III (the "Executive").

                           W I T N E S S E T H:

     WHEREAS, the Executive and the Company mutually desire to terminate
the Executive's employment with the Company; and

     WHEREAS, the Company wishes to retain the Executive as a consultant as
described below;

     NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises, the agreements
herein contained and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt
and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the Company and the
Executive agree as follows:

     1.  This Agreement embodies the full and final settlement of all
obligations of the Company to the Executive and the arrangements set forth
herein fully close out all relationships between the Executive and the
Company and its subsidiaries.

     2.  The Executive hereby resigns from the Board of Directors of the
Company and any committees thereof effective as of the date hereof.  The
Executive and the Company acknowledge that, from and after October 27,
1994, (a) he has not been an active status employee of the Company, (b) he
has not held the positions of Vice Chairman
 and Chief Executive Officer of
the Company and (c) he has not been a director or officer of, has not been
employed by and has not held any other position with subsidiaries of the
Company.  From October 27 to November 30, 1994, the Executive shall
continue to receive salary as though he remained on the payroll of the
Company in paid leave status at his existing rate of base salary.

     3.  Contemporaneous with the execution of this Agreement, the Company
will pay the Executive a lump sum equal to $418,209.  On January 3, 1995,
the Company will pay the Executive a lump sum equal to $2,394,222.  Each of
the payments to be made under this Section 3 shall be made by wire
transfer, immediately available funds, to that account and bank previously
used for the direct deposit of his periodic pay.

     4.  The Executive will be entitled to any benefits or rights he earned
under the terms of the Company's employee pension plans, employee benefit
plans or other compensation arrangements by which the Executive was covered
during his employment, in accordance with the terms of those plans or
arrangements applicable to the Executive's voluntary termination of
employment other than by reason of retirement.  Following October 27, 1994,
the Executive shall accrue no further benefits under said plans and
arrangements, except as specifically provided herein.  The Executive shall
remain entitled to reimbursement for expenses incurred during the period
prior to October 27, 1994, under the Company's standard expense
reimbursement policy and procedures.

     5.  The Executive agrees, from time to time, to provide consulting
services to the Company and its subsidiaries for a period of up to one year
after the date hereof at such times and for such periods as the Company and
the Executive shall reasonably agree.  The Company will pay the Executive
$100,000, in four equal installments of $25,000 payable on January 3, 1995,
February 1, 1995, March 1, 1995 and April 3, 1995, for such consulting
services.  Each of the payments to be made under this Section 5 shall be
made by wire transfer, immediately available funds, to that account and
bank previously used for the direct deposit of his periodic pay.

     6.  Provided all annual pass cards in the possession of the Executive
have been surrendered to the Company, the Executive and his eligible family
members shall be entitled to pass privileges for a 42 month period from the
date hereof of the same type and priority received prior to the termination
of employment (i.e., PS1B for company business or S100 for personal
travel), subject to any changes in policy generally applicable to directors
of the Company still in the service thereof.  Passes shall be issued upon
individual requests directly to the Continental Airlines pass bureau. 
Thereafter, the Executive and his eligible family members shall receive
lifetime passes (equivalent to S200 passes) and his children shall continue
to receive such passes so long as they are eligible under the Company's
pass policy, pursuant to the resolution adopted by the Company's Board of
Directors on April 21, 1993.

     7.  For a period of 42 months from the date hereof, the Executive
shall continue in the Company's group insurance programs (including,
without limitation, long-term disability insurance and group medical
insurance) or be provided substantially comparable benefits, provided he
has not accepted other employment that provides comparable benefits.  The
Executive's entitlement to benefit continuation pursuant to the
Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985 shall commence at
the end of such period.

     8.  The Executive shall be under no obligation to mitigate damage to
the Company and no future earnings (except with respect to benefit coverage
as described in Section 7 above) by the Executive from any source shall be
payable to the Company or be subject to offset pursuant to this Agreement.

     9.  The Company shall indemnify the Executive against all losses,
including legal fees and expenses, arising from claims against the
Executive in connection with the Executive's good-faith execution of his
employment with the Company (which employment shall, for purposes of this
Section 9, be understood by the Company and the Executive to have ceased on
October 26, 1994, except with respect to his capacity as a director, which
ceased on the date hereof), to the fullest extent permitted by the General
Corporation Law of the State of Delaware, and, without limiting the
generality of the foregoing, will be obligated on its commitment to
indemnify the Executive as set forth in the Executive's previous employment
agreement with the Company that was affirmed by order of the Delaware
Bankruptcy Court dated August 21, 1991.

     10.  All payments and benefits due to the Executive hereunder shall be
subject to the Executive's compliance with the following provisions for a
period ending one year after the date hereof:

     (a)  The Executive shall, upon reasonable notice, furnish such
information and proper assistance to the Company and its subsidiaries as
may reasonably be required in connection with any litigation in which it or
any of its subsidiaries is, or may become, a party.

     (b)  The Executive will not discuss with any other employee of the
Company or its subsidiaries the formation or operations of any business
intended to compete with the Company or its subsidiaries, or the possible
future employment of such other employee by any business.

     (c)  Any public statement made by the Executive concerning the Company
or its subsidiaries, officers, directors or employees shall be submitted
for approval in writing from the Company's public relations and legal
departments.

     If the Executive fails to comply with the above obligations, the
Company may cease extending benefits to the Executive and may recover by
appropriate action instituted in any court of competent jurisdiction (i)
any net after-tax payments theretofore paid to the Executive hereunder, and
(ii) any tax benefit actually realized by the Executive as a result of the
recovery of any such payments with respect to the taxable year of the
Executive during which the Executive repays to the Company the payments
described in clause (i) of this sentence (it being understood and agreed
that the Company will not be entitled to recover any tax benefit actually
realized by the Executive in any later taxable year of the Executive,
including, but not limited to, any such tax benefit resulting from any
payment under this clause (ii)).  For purposes of clause (ii) of the
preceding sentence, a tax benefit is "actually realized by the Executive"
"with respect to the taxable year of the Executive" when it results, with
respect to such taxable year, in a refund of tax to the Executive for such
taxable year or a reduction in the amount of tax for such taxable year
which the Executive would have had to pay if such repayment had not been
made.

     11.  The Executive hereby releases, remises, acquits and discharges
the Company, Air Partners, L.P. and Air Canada and each of their respective
subsidiaries, divisions, officers, directors, agents, employees,
consultants, independent contractors, attorneys, advisers, successors and
assigns, jointly and severally, from any and all claims, known or unknown,
which the Executive, his heirs, successors or assigns have or may have
against any of such parties and any and all liability (including any claims
under the April 16, 1993 employment agreement or any prior such agreements,
except with regard to the obligation set forth in Section 9 of this
Agreement) that any of such parties may have to him whether denominated
claims, demands, causes of action, obligations, damages or liabilities
arising from any and all bases, however denominated, including but not
limited to claims of discrimination under the U.S. Age Discrimination in
Employment Act, Title VII of the United States Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42
U.S.C. Paragraph 1981, V.T.C.A., Labor Code Paragraph 21.051(1) or any
other Texas law, or any other U.S. federal, state or local law or any other
law, rule or regulation or workers' compensation or disability claims under
any such laws.  Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, this
release is not intended to interfere with the Executive's right to file a
charge with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in connection
with any claim the Executive believes he may have against the Company, Air
Partners, L.P., Air Canada or any of their subsidiaries.  However, by
signing this Agreement, the Executive agrees to waive the right to recover
in any proceeding he may bring before the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity
Commission or in any proceeding brought by the U.S. Equal Employment
Opportunity Commission on his behalf.  This release relates to claims
arising from and during the Executive's relationship with the Company, Air
Partners, L.P., Air Canada, their subsidiaries and predecessor companies,
or as a result of the termination of such relationship.  This release is
for any relief, no matter how denominated, including but not limited to
wages, back pay, front pay, compensatory damages or punitive damages.  The
Executive further agrees that the Executive will not file or permit to be
filed on his behalf any such claim.  This release shall not apply to (a)
the obligations set forth in this Agreement or (b) any other claims that
may arise after the date on which he signs this Agreement.  The Executive
expressly acknowledges that the benefits being offered to him in this
Agreement constitute consideration for the foregoing release that is in
addition to anything of value to which he is already entitled from the
Company, Air Partners, L.P., Air Canada and their subsidiaries.

     The Company, Air Partners, L.P. and Air Canada hereby release, remise,
acquit and discharge the Executive and his heirs, successors, assigns,
agents, attorneys and advisers, jointly and severally, from any and all
claims, known or unknown, which they, their subsidiaries, successors or
assigns have or may have against him and any and all liability (including
any claims under the April 16, 1993 employment agreement or any prior such
agreements) which the Executive may have to the Company, Air Partners,
L.P., Air Canada or their subsidiaries whether denominated claims, demands,
causes of action, obligations, damages or liabilities arising from any and
all bases, however denominated.  This release relates to claims arising
from and during the Executive's relationship with the Company, Air
Partners, L.P., Air Canada, their subsidiaries and predecessor companies,
or as a result of the termination of such relationship.  This release is
for any relief, no matter how denominated, including but not limited to
compensatory damages or punitive damages.  The Company, Air Partners, L.P.
and Air Canada further agree that they will not file or permit to be filed
on behalf of the Company, Air Partners, L.P. or Air Canada or any of their
subsidiaries, successors or assigns any such claim.  This release shall not
apply to (a) the obligations set forth in this Agreement or (b) any other
claims that may arise after the date on which the Executive signs this
Agreement.  The Company, Air Partners, L.P. and Air Canada expressly
acknowledge that they and their subsidiaries are receiving consideration
for the foregoing release that is in addition to anything of value to which
they are already entitled from the Executive.

     Nothing in this Section 11 shall have any effect on the Executive's
ability to receive any properly payable benefit under any existing or
expired director and officer insurance policy maintained by the Company. 
The Company shall maintain with respect to the Executive the same coverage
under any director and officer insurance policies relating to the period
during which the Executive was a director and/or officer as is maintained
for others who were directors and officers during such period or continue
to be directors and officers (but only with respect to actions during such
period).

     12.  This Agreement does not constitute an admission of liability of
any kind by the Company or any of its subsidiaries.  This Agreement is
personal to the Executive and, without the prior written consent of the
Board of Directors of the Company, shall not be assignable by the Executive
otherwise than by will or the laws of descent and distribution.  The terms
of this Agreement shall be binding and inure to the benefit of the Company,
Air Partners, L.P., Air Canada and their respective subsidiaries,
successors and assigns.  This Agreement constitutes the entire
understanding between the Executive and the Company, Air Partners, L.P.,
Air Canada and their respective subsidiaries with respect to the subject
matter hereof, and supersedes all prior understandings, written or oral. 
Without limitation on the foregoing, this Agreement shall supersede the
April 16, 1993 employment agreement between the Executive and the Company
and any prior such agreements, except as set forth in Section 9 of this
Agreement.  The terms of this Agreement may be changed, modified or
discharged only by an instrument in writing signed by the parties hereto. 
This Agreement shall be construed, enforced and interpreted in accordance
with applicable Federal law and the laws of the State of Texas without
reference to its principles of conflicts of law.  If either party brings an
action or proceeding to enforce such party's rights under this Agreement,
the prevailing party in such action or proceeding shall be entitled to
receive from the other party an amount equal to the prevailing party's
reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses incurred as a result of such action
or proceeding.  This Agreement may be executed in any number of
counterparts, each of which shall be deemed to be original.

     13.  (a)  All payments hereunder shall be subject to, and reduced by,
applicable withholding taxes, which the Company shall timely remit to the
appropriate tax authorities.

     (b)  Because the Executive believes there is some uncertainty as to
the proper characterization for federal tax purposes of payments made by
the Company to, or for the benefit of, the Executive, the Executive has
determined that he wishes to file his federal income tax returns and make
payment of taxes on the basis that a portion of the payments due him under
Section 3 of this Agreement in the aggregate amount of $2,441,618 (which
amount excludes a "base amount," as defined in Section 280G of the Code, of
$370,813) is subject to Section 4999 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986,
as amended (the "Code"), although a statement will be included in such
returns that states the Executive reserves the right to prosecute a refund
claim with respect thereto on the grounds that such payments are not
subject to Section 4999 of the Code and that the Executive is obligated to
refund amounts to the Company in the event that such refund claim is
successful.  The Executive and the Company acknowledge that as a result of
this determination (i) $126,170 of the $418,209 amount due the Executive on
the date of execution of this Agreement under Section 3 of this Agreement,
and (i) $723,092 of the $2,394,222 amount due the Executive on January 3,
1995, under Section 3 of this Agreement, relate to excise, medicare, and
income tax indemnities and gross-ups that the Executive is entitled to if
such payments are subject to Section 4999 of the Code.  The Executive,
therefore, requests that the Company withhold, and the Company agrees to
withhold, income, medicare, and excise taxes from such amounts as set forth
on Appendix B and determined utilizing the methodology set forth on
Appendix A, notwithstanding the Company's view that none of such payments
are subject to Section 4999 of the Code.  On or before the date the
Executive files his federal income tax return for 1994, the Company and the
Executive shall recompute the amounts due under Section 3 of this Agreement
based upon the information in such federal income tax return to be filed
and utilizing the methodology set forth in Appendix A hereto.  The
Executive anticipates that his taxable income for 1994 (excluding any
amount due the Executive under Section 3 of this Agreement) will not vary
by more than $150,000 from the $590,587 taxable income figure used in
Appendix A.  Within 10 days after the Company and the Executive agree on
such recomputation, the Company or the Executive, as the case may be, shall
make a payment to the other to reflect the results of such recomputation. 
In the event any federal tax rate used in the computations reflected on the
first two pages of Appendix A is different from the corresponding rate in
effect with respect to the Executive's 1995 taxable year solely as a result
of changes in applicable tax law, the Company and the Executive shall
recompute the amounts due on January 3, 1995, under Section 3 of this
Agreement so that neither party receives a benefit nor suffers a detriment
solely as a result of such tax rate difference.  Any such recomputation
shall be made within 10 days after enactment of the law causing such
difference.  Within 10 days after the Company and the Executive agree on
such recomputation, the Company or the Executive, as the case may be, shall
make a payment to the other to reflect the results of such recomputation.

     (c)  As a result of the uncertainty in the application of Section 4999
of the Code, it is possible that the Internal Revenue Service may claim (a
"Claim") that the Executive's tax liability is increased by the reason of
the imposition of the excise tax under Section 4999 of the Code on a
payment or payments made by the Company to or for the benefit of the
Executive with respect to which the Company has not made sufficient
indemnity and gross-up payments.  The Executive shall promptly notify the
Company in writing of any Claim and will not pay such Claim prior to the
expiration of the thirty-day period following the date on which the
Executive gave such notice to the Company (or such shorter period ending on
the date that any payment of taxes with respect to such Claim is due).  If
the Company notifies the Executive in writing prior to the expiration of
such period that it desires to contest such Claim, the Company shall,
subject to the provisions of this Section 13, have the right to control all
proceedings relating to such Claim, including requesting the Executive to
pay the amounts claimed and pursue a refund claim with respect to such
amounts (a "Defensive Refund Claim").  In addition, the Company may prepare
and prosecute a refund claim (an "Offensive Refund Claim") with respect to
any payments hereunder treated as subject to Section 4999 of the Code (and
related taxes thereon).

     (d)  The Executive shall appoint the Company (or counsel appointed by
the Company) as attorney-in-fact to prosecute any Claim, Defensive Refund
Claim or Offensive Refund Claim (a "Controversy") on his behalf for the
Company's benefit with respect thereto.  The Company shall bear and pay
directly all costs and expenses (including the costs and expenses of
counsel and experts retained by the Company and any additional interest and
penalties) incurred in connection with any Controversy and shall indemnify
and hold the Executive harmless, on a fully grossed-up after tax basis, for
any tax, including interest and penalties with respect thereto, imposed as
a result of such payment of costs and expenses.  If the Company requests
the Executive to pay an amount claimed and pursue a Defensive Refund Claim,
the Company shall advance the amount of such payment to the Executive, on
an interest-free basis, and shall indemnify and hold the Executive
harmless, on a fully grossed-up after tax basis, from any tax, including
interest and penalties with respect thereto, imposed with respect to such
advance or with respect to any imputed income with respect to such advance. 
With respect to any Claim, the Company shall indemnify and hold the
Executive harmless, on a fully grossed-up after tax basis, from all
liabilities for taxes (including any interest and penalties imposed with
respect to such taxes), including any tax under Section 4999 of the Code,
resulting from such Claim.  If, after the receipt by the Executive of any
amount advanced by the Company under this Section 13(d), a final
determination is made that the Executive is not entitled to a refund of the
amount claimed to which such advance relates, then such advance shall be
forgiven, to the extent that the Executive was not entitled to a refund of
the amount claimed, and such forgiven amount shall not be required to be
repaid and shall offset, to the extent thereof, the amount of indemnities
and gross-ups required to be paid by the Company hereunder.

     (e)  In the Company's prosecution of any Controversy, (i) any
extension of the statute of limitations relating to assessment, payment or
collection of taxes for the taxable year of the Executive with respect to
which the contested amount of the Controversy relates shall be limited
solely to such contested amount, and (ii) the Company's control of any
contest or proceeding shall be limited to issues with respect to the
Controversy and the Executive shall be entitled to settle or contest, in
his sole and absolute discretion, any other issue.  The Company shall
promptly keep the Executive informed of all developments and events
relating to any such Controversy (including, without limitation, providing
to the Executive copies of all written materials pertaining to any such
Controversy), and the Executive or his authorized representatives shall be
entitled, at the Executive's expense, to participate in all conferences,
meetings and proceedings relating to any such Controversy.  The Executive
agrees to provide (or cause to be provided) to the Company any information
reasonably requested by the Company that is within his possession or
control and relates to such Controversy and otherwise to cooperate with the
Company and its representatives in good faith in order to contest
effectively such Controversy.

     (f)  Any refund (including interest thereon) actually received by or
credited to the Executive as a result of a Controversy shall be returned to
the Company by the Executive within 10 days of such receipt or 10 days of
receipt of notice of such crediting, as the case may be.  In addition, the
Executive shall pay to the Company an amount equal to any tax benefit
actually realized by the Executive with respect to the taxable year during
which the Executive actually returns to the Company such refund or a prior
taxable year as a result of such return (it being understood and agreed
that the Company will not be entitled to recover any tax benefit actually
realized by the Executive with respect to any later taxable year of the
Executive, including, but not limited to, any such tax benefit resulting
from any payment pursuant to this sentence).  A tax benefit is "actually
realized by the Executive with respect to the taxable year" "or a prior
taxable year" when it results, with respect to such taxable year, in a
refund of tax to the Executive or a reduction in the amount of tax which
the Executive would have had to pay if such repayment had not been made in
such taxable year.  Any tax benefit required to be paid by the Executive to
the Company under this Section 13(f) shall be paid within 10 days after the
date on which such tax benefit is actually realized by the Executive.

     14.  The failure of either party at any time to enforce any of the
provisions of this Agreement or to require performance by the other party
of any provision hereof shall not be construed to be a waiver of such
provisions or to affect the validity of this Agreement, or any part hereof,
or of the right of either party thereafter to enforce each and every
provision of this Agreement in accordance with its terms.

     15.  Written notices required or furnished under this Agreement shall
be sent to the following addresses:

     to the Company:               Continental Airlines, Inc.
                                   2929 Allen Parkway

Notices shall be effective on the first business day following receipt
thereof.  Notices sent by mail shall be deemed received on the date of

     16.  Except as is otherwise specifically provided in this Agreement,
the Executive will return to the Company and its subsidiaries, as promptly
as possible, any personal property of the Company and its subsidiaries such
as keys and company credit cards.  The Executive shall not charge any
additional amounts on any company credit card, and represents that he has
not made any such charges since October 26, 1994.

     17.  The payments hereunder will not constitute compensation for any
purpose under any retirement plan or scheme maintained by the Company or
any of its subsidiaries.

     18.  The Company will pay the reasonable fees and expenses of (a)
counsel incurred on his behalf in connection with the review and
negotiation of this Agreement in an amount not to exceed $85,000 and (b)
tax counsel, accountants and other appropriate professionals in connection
with the preparation of the Executive's 1994 and 1995 tax returns in an
amount not to exceed $10,000 for each return.

     IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the Company has caused this Agreement to be
executed by its duly authorized officer, and the Executive has executed
this Agreement, in each case on the date first above written.

                          Memorandum of Agreement


     Charles T. Goolsbee ("Goolsbee") and Continental Airlines, Inc.
("Continental") in full and final settlement of all rights and obligations
of the parties under the Employment Agreement between them dated as of
April 16, 1993, agree as follows:

      1.  The Employment Agreement dated as of April 16, 1993 is of no
          further force and effect and is, in all respects, terminated.

      2.  Goolsbee shall remain in the employ of Continental until March
          15, 1995.

      3.  The balance of the loans presently owed to Continental by
          Goolsbee in the principal amount of $364,000, and all interest
          thereon, is hereby forgiven.

      4.  Continental shall pay Goolsbee the sum of $150,000 on or before
          March 31, 1995.

      5.  If, as and when Goolsbee sells his house, Continental agrees to
          pay, at the Closing thereof, a brokerage commission of up to six
          percent (6%) of the sale price to Goolsbee for payment to the
          selling broker, plus the sum of $30,000 to Goolsbee.

      6.  Goolsbee shall act as a consultant to Continental for a period of
          one year, at the rate of $15,000 per month, from March 15, 1995
          to March 14, 1996, on the following terms:

          (a)  Goolsbee shall work 12 (twelve) full business days per month
               on the business of Continental in matters relating to
               potential business
 alliances for Continental and in legal
               matters of Continental, all as directed by Gordon Bethune or
               his designee;

          (b)  Goolsbee shall report to Gordon Bethune or his designee;

          (c)  Continental shall indemnify Goolsbee against all losses,
               including legal fees and expenses, arising from claims
               against Goolsbee in connection with Goolsbee's good-faith
               execution of his consultancy hereunder.  Continental shall,
               to the fullest extent permitted by law, indemnify Goolsbee
               for all acts or omissions committed by Goolsbee while he was
               employed as a Continental employee;

          (d)  Goolsbee shall assist Continental in connection with any
               litigation in which it, or its affiliates, is or may become
               a party;

          (e)  Goolsbee will not accept employment from any person, firm or
               corporation which, in any way, competes with Continental;

          (f)  Goolsbee will not solicit, directly or indirectly, any
               employee of Continental to leave the employ of Continental.

      7.  Goolsbee shall, to the extent feasible under Continental's
          various programs, continue to be included in the group insurance
          programs, including long-term disability and group term life
          insurance at the normal rate (one-half current annual salary,
          i.e. at $162,500), provided he has not accepted other employment
          that provides comparable benefits, for the period of the
          consultancy in para. 6 hereinabove and for a period of one and
          one-half years thereafter, and shall, indefinitely, be entitled
          to the same pass privileges on Continental as he enjoyed during
          his period of employment with Continental.  During Goolsbee's
          twelve-month consultancy period, he will also have the same pass
          privileges on other airlines that he enjoyed during his period of
          employment with Continental.  Goolsbee shall be eligible for
          COBRA benefits, at his own expense, commencing with the cessation
          of his health benefits under this para. 7.

      8.  Goolsbee and Continental both confirm to each other that there
          are no oral representations or inducements, of any kind or
          nature, made by either to the other to induce the other to enter
          into this Memorandum of Agreement, and none shall be claimed at
          any time.

      9.  In the event of any dispute arising hereunder, Goolsbee and
          Continental agree to arbitrate the dispute before the American
          Arbitration Association in New York City.

     10.  This Memorandum of Agreement constitutes the entire agreement
          between Goolsbee and Continental, and may not be changed, amended
          or modified except by a writing signed by Goolsbee and by
          Continental.

       SECOND AMENDED AND RESTATED EMPLOYMENT COMPENSATION AGREEMENT


     This Agreement dated as of January 10, 1995 between Continental
Airlines, Inc. (the "Company"), a Delaware corporation, and Gordon M.
Bethune (the "Executive"),

                           W I T N E S S E T H:

     WHEREAS the Company and the Executive (each referred to herein
individually as a "Party" and collectively as the "Parties") have entered
into an Employment Agreement dated as of February 14, 1994 (the "Employment
Agreement") a letter agreement dated February 14, 1994 (the February Letter
Agreement") a letter agreement dated July 7, 1994 (the "Letter Agreement")
an amendment to the Employment Agreement styled First Amendment to
Employment Agreement dated as of July 12, 1994 (the "First Amendment") and
a Amended and Restated Employment Compensation Agreement dated January 10,
1995 (the "First Amended and Restated Agreement"), and

     WHEREAS to implement the agreement of the parties with respect to the
supplemental executive retirement plan set forth in Section 18 below, the
Company and the executive desire to further amend the Employment Agreement
and to restate the Employment Agreement as amended to date,

     NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual covenants contained
herein,
 and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt of which
is hereby acknowledged, the Parties hereto agree that the Employment
Agreement hereby be amended and restated in its entirety as follows:

      1.  Employment - The Company agrees to employ the Executive, and the
Executive agrees to remain in the employ of the Company under the terms and
conditions herein provided.

      2.  Position - During his employment hereunder, the Executive agrees
to serve the Company and the Company shall employ the Executive in such
capacity or capacities as may be specified from time to time by the Board
of Directors of the Company, subject to the provisions of Section 5(a)(ii)
hereof and that such Executive shall not be required to work at a location
other than one within the contiguous 48 states of the United States of
America.

      3.  Term - The Executive's employment shall be one at will, to-wit: 
either the Executive or the Company shall have the right to terminate it at
any time, with or without cause, and without any liability or obligation of
either Party to the other except as may be expressly specified in this
Agreement.

      4.  Compensation - The Company will pay the Executive a base salary
at an initial annual rate of $550,000, payable in substantially equal semi-
monthly installments.  During his employment with the Company, the
Executive's salary shall be reviewed periodically in accordance with
Company policy and such review may result in an increase in said salary
which such amount shall be substituted for the specified amount set forth
in this Section.

      5.  Termination of Employment -

          (a)  A "Termination of Employment" shall be defined as any one of
the following:  (i) the termination of the Executive's employment by the
Company for any reason other than (A) willful misconduct or gross neglect
of duty by the Executive, (B) retirement under the ordinary retirement
program of the Company, (C) disability of the Executive resulting in
compensated absence from his duties to the Company on a full-time basis for
over 180 days or (D) death of the Executive; (ii) the termination of the
Executive's employment by the Executive after providing the Company with
ten business days' prior written notice that the Executive is terminating
employment because of (A) a material reduction in the responsibilities or
title of the Executive or of the corporate amenities to which he was
entitled immediately prior thereto or (B) a reduction of the Executive's
cash compensation by more than 10% below the highest annual salary from
time to time in effect for the Executive; provided, however, that no
Termination of Employment shall occur pursuant to the preceding clause (ii)
if the circumstances described in the preceding clauses (ii)(A) and (ii)(B)
are corrected prior to the expiration of ten business days from the date
the Executive provided notice to the Company of his intent to terminate
employment; and (iii) the Termination of the Executive's employment by the
Executive following a Change in Control.  For purposes hereof, a Change in
Control shall be deemed to have occurred if (a) any corporation, person or
other entity completes a tender or exchange offer for shares of the
Company's common stock pursuant to which purchases are made of more than
50% of the Company's common stock, (b) the Company merges with or
consolidates into another corporation pursuant to a transaction in which
the holders of the Company's common stock immediately prior to such merger
or consolidation own less than 50% of the common stock of the Company into
which the Company is merged or consolidated immediately after such merger
or consolidation or the Company sells or otherwise disposes of all or
substantially all of its assets, (c) any person other than Air Canada or
Air Partners owns, directly or indirectly, securities entitling such person
to, or such person does in fact, elect a majority of the Company Board of
Directors, or (d) either Air Canada or Air Partners ceases to own, directly
or indirectly, securities entitling such person to elect one-sixth of the
Board of Directors of the Company, provided that this clause (d) shall not
apply in the case of a sale by Air Canada of all or any portion of its
shares to another foreign air carrier.

          (b)  Upon a Termination of Employment, or upon the expiration of
long term disability insurance benefits (prior to the Executive's regular
retirement date) while the Executive remains disabled, the Company will pay
the Executive (subject to provisions of Section 9 hereof) as severance pay
or liquidated damages, or both, a lump sum amount equal to 300% of his then
current Annual Compensation from the Company.  For purposes hereof, "Annual
Compensation" shall mean the annualized rate of pay as set forth in
Section 4 hereof plus a Deemed Annual Bonus.  The "Deemed Annual Bonus"
shall be equal to 25% of the annualized pay rate set forth in Section 4
hereof.

          (c)  Executive shall be under no obligation to mitigate his
damage resulting from a Termination of Employment and no future earnings by
Executive from any source shall be payable to the Company or shall reduce
the sums due from the Company pursuant to this Agreement.

          (d)  For a period of three years following a Termination of
Employment, the Executive shall continue in the Company's group insurance
programs, including long-term disability insurance (or be provided
substantially comparable benefits), provided he has not accepted other
employment that provides comparable benefits.  The Executive's entitlement
to benefit continuation pursuant to the Consolidated Omnibus Budget
Reconciliation Act shall commence at the end of such period.

          (e)  For three years following a Termination of Employment, and
provided all annual pass cards in the possession of the Executive have been
surrendered to the Company, the Executive and his eligible family members
shall be entitled to pass privileges on Continental Airlines of the same
type and priority as the Executive received prior to the Termination of
Employment, subject to any changes in policy generally applicable to
officers of Continental Airlines still in the employ thereof.  In addition,
upon termination of Executive's employment for any reason, Executive and
eligible family members shall be entitled to a lifetime pass at senior
officer retiree grade.  Passes shall be issued upon individual requests
directly to the Continental Airlines pass bureau.

      6.  Indemnification - The Company shall indemnify the Executive
against all losses, including legal fees and expenses, arising from claims
against the Executive in connection with the Executive's good-faith
execution of his employment hereunder, to the fullest extent permitted by
the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware.

      7.  Tax Indemnity - The Company shall indemnify Executive on a fully
grossed-up after-tax basis against any tax liability (including, without
limitation, excise taxes incurred pursuant to IRC Paragraph 4999) resulting
from the payment of severance or the provision of other benefits following
a Termination of Employment pursuant to this Agreement (excluding benefits
provided for under Section 18), to the extent that Executive's tax payments
are at a higher percentage of total income than they would have been absent
such payment of severance or provision of benefits.  To the extent not
otherwise provided for in this Agreement, the Company shall also indemnify
Executive with respect to any medicare payroll taxes (plus any income taxes
imposed on such indemnity payments) as incurred by Executive in connection
with the deferral of compensation under the supplemental executive
retirement plan set forth in Section 18.

      8.  Life Insurance - The Company shall maintain life insurance for
the Executive in the amount of the severance payable to Executive pursuant
to Section 5 hereof.  In the absence of such life insurance, the Company
shall pay Executive's beneficiary or beneficiaries an amount equal to such
severance in the event of the death of Executive while employed by the
Company.  The Company shall hold Executive harmless from any tax liability
accruing to Executive as a result of the purchase of such insurance, and
likewise shall hold Executive's estate, heirs and assigns harmless from any
tax liability accruing because of the failure to maintain such insurance.

      9.  Post-Termination Obligations - All payments and benefits due to
the Executive hereunder shall be subject to the Executive's compliance with
the following provisions during the applicability of this Agreement and for
one full year after the expiration or termination hereof;

          (a)  The Executive shall, upon reasonable notice, furnish such
information and proper assistance to the Company and its affiliates as may
reasonably be required in connection with any litigation in which it or any
of its affiliates is, or may become, a party.

          (b)  The Executive will not discuss with any other employee of
the Company or its affiliates the formation or operations of any business
intended to compete with the Company or its affiliates, or the possible
future employment of such other employee by any business.

          (c)  Any public statements made by the Executive concerning the
Company or its affiliates, officers, directors or employees shall be
submitted for approval in writing from the Company's public relations and
legal departments.

     If the Executive fails to comply with the above obligations, the
Company may cease extending benefits to the Executive and may recover by
appropriate action instituted in any court of competent jurisdiction any
severance payments theretofore paid to the Executive.

     10.  Consolidation, Merger, Sale of Assets - This Agreement shall be
binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Executive and the Company and
its successors and assigns, including without limitation any corporation
with or into which the Company may be consolidated or merged or to which
the Company sells or transfers all or substantially all of its assets.

     11.  Notices - Written notices required or furnished under this
Agreement shall be sent to the following addresses:

     18.  Supplemental Executive Retirement Plan -

          (a)  The Company agrees to pay Executive the deferred
compensation benefits set forth in this Section 18 as a supplemental
executive retirement plan (the "Plan").  The base retirement benefit under
the Plan (the "Base Benefit") shall be in the form of an annual straight
life annuity in an amount equal to the product of (i) 1.6% times (ii) the
number of Executive's credited years of service (as defined below) under
the Plan times (iii) the Executive's final average compensation (as defined
below).  For purposes hereof, Executive's credited years of service under
the Plan shall be equal to the number of Executive's years of benefit
service with the Company, calculated as set forth in the Continental
Airlines Retirement Plan beginning at January 1, 1995; provided, however
that if a Termination of Employment occurs and Executive is paid severance
pay under Section 5(b) of this Agreement, Executive shall be further
credited with three (3) additional years of service under the Plan.  For
purposes hereof, Executive's final average compensation shall be equal to
the greater of (i) $550,000 or (ii) the average of the five highest annual
cash compensation amounts paid to Executive by the Company during the
consecutive ten calendar years immediately preceding his termination of
employment at retirement or otherwise.  For purposes hereof, cash
compensation shall include base salary plus cash bonuses other than the
bonus set forth in Section 19 below and any other bonus paid on or prior to
March 31, 1995.  All benefits under the Plan shall be payable in equal
monthly installments beginning on the first day of the month following the
Retirement Date.  For purposes hereof, "Retirement Date: is defined as
later of the (i) date on which Executive attains (or in the event of his
earlier death), would have attained) age 65 or (ii) the date of his
retirement from employment with the Company.  If Executive is single on the
Retirement Date, benefits under the Plan will be paid to Executive during
his lifetime in the form of the Base Benefit.  If Executive is married on
the Retirement Date, benefits under the Plan will be paid in the form of a
joint and survivor annuity that is actuarially equivalent (as defined
below) to the Base Benefit, with Executive's surviving spouse being
entitled during her lifetime after his death to a benefit (the "Survivor's
Benefit") equal to 50% of the benefit payable to Executive during their
joint lifetimes.  In the event of Executive's death prior to the Retirement
Date, his surviving spouse, if he is married on the date of his death, will
receive beginning on the Retirement Date an amount equal to the Survivor's
Benefit calculated as if the Executive had retired with a joint and
survivor annuity on the day before his date of death.  The amount of any
benefits payable to Executive and/or his spouse under the Continental
Airlines Retirement Plan shall be offset against benefits due under the
Plan.  If Executive's employment with the Company terminates for any reason
prior to February 14, 1999, the Company shall provide further benefits
under the Plan to ensure that Executive is treated for all purposes as if
he were fully vested under the Continental Airlines Retirement Plan.

     (b)  The Executive understands that he must rely upon the general
credit of the Company for payment of benefits under the Plan.  The Company
has not and will not in the future set aside assets for security or enter
into any other arrangement which will cause the obligation created to be
other than a general corporate obligation of the Company or will cause
Executive to be more than a general creditor of the Company.

     (c)  For purposes of the Plan, the terms "actuarial equivalent", or
"actuarially equivalent" when used with respect to a specified benefit
shall mean the amount of benefit of a different type or payable at a
different age that can be provided at the same cost as such specified
benefit, as computed by the Actuary.  The actuarial assumptions used to
determine equivalencies between different forms of annuities under the Plan
shall be the 1984 Unisex Pensioners Mortality 50% male, 50% female
calculation (with males set back one year and females set back five years),
with interest at an annual rate of 7%.  The term "Actuary" shall mean the
individual actuary or actuarial firm selected by the Company to service its
pension plans generally or if no such individual or firm has been selected,
an individual actuary or actuarial firm appointed by the Company and
reasonably satisfactory to Executive and/or his spouse.

     19.  Bonus Payments.  On July 12, 1994, the Company paid to Executive
a cash bonus in the amount of $1,500,000.  Executive and the Company agree
that:  (i) if Executive voluntarily terminates his employment with the
Company prior to January 12, 1995, Executive will refund to the Company the
entire amount of the bonus ($1,500,000); (ii) if Executive voluntarily
terminates his employment with the Company on or after January 12, 1995 but
prior to January 12, 1996, Executive will refund to the Company one-half of
the bonus ($750,000); and (iii) the bonus will be fully earned if Executive
does not voluntarily terminate his employment with the Company on or before
January 12, 1996.

     20.  Stock Options - Pursuant to the Company's 1994 Incentive Equity
Plan (the "Incentive Plan") the Company has awarded and granted to
Executive options to purchase 125,000 shares of Class B Common stock at an
exercise price of $14.125, and options to purchase 125,000 shares of Class
B Common Stock at an exercise price of $11.00 (together, the "1994 Stock
Options") with 25% of the shares covered by such stock options vesting
annually on a cumulative basis commencing January 2, 1995.  The Company
further agreed to award and grant to Executive, pursuant to the Incentive
Plan, options (the "1995 Stock Options") to purchase 25,000 shares of Class
B Common Stock effective January 2, 1995, at an exercise price equal to the
market price (as defined in the Incentive Plan, of shares of such stock on
January 2, 1995, with 25% of the shares covered by the 1995 Stock Option
vesting annually on a cumulative basis commencing January 2, 1995.  In the
event of a termination of Executive's employment by the Company for any
reason other than cause, the Company shall cause any unvested options under
the 1994 and 1995 Stock Options to vest immediately.  The 1994 Stock
Options and the 1995 Stock Options are evidenced, by certain Amended and
Restated Stock Option Grants with respect thereto, and the Company and the
Executive acknowledge and agree that any and all other agreements with
respect to Executive's stock option grants have been superseded and
replaced thereby.

     21.  Restricted Stock Award - Pursuant to the Incentive Plan,
Executive has been awarded restricted stock grants for a total of 75,000
shares of the Company's Class B Common Stock with 50% of such restricted
stock vesting on March 1, 1995 and 50% vesting on March 1, 1996.  In the
event of a termination of Executive's employment by the Company for any
reason other than cause, the Company shall cause any unvested stock under
such grants to vest immediately.  Such grant of restricted stock is
evidenced by that certain restricted Stock Grant Agreement, executed by the
Company September 21, 1994, and Company and Executive acknowledge and agree
that any and all other agreements with respect to Executive's restricted
stock grants have been superseded and replaced thereby.

     22.  Automobile - The Company has leased an automobile for Executive's
use pursuant to a lease agreement dated July 11, 1994 with Chase Auto
Leasing Corp.  The Company agrees to take such action as may be necessary
to permit Executive, at his option, to take title to the automobile at the
completion of the lease term by paying the residual payment then owing
under the lease.

     The parties hereto have executed this Agreement as of the date and
year first above written.

Mr. John E. Luth



Dear Mr. Luth:

     This letter agreement (the "Agreement") sets forth all of the
understandings and agreements between you and Continental Airlines, Inc.
("Continental") and its affiliates relating to (1) the termination of your
employment with Continental, (2) the resignation from your position as
Senior Vice-President and Chief Information Officer of Continental and (3)
your retention as a consultant to Continental.  You and Continental hereby
agree that the effective date of the termination of your employment with
Continental will be March 31, 1995 (the "Termination Date") but that you
shall retain your title and position as Senior Vice-President and Chief
Information Officer of Continental until May 31, 1995.  It is intended that
the arrangements set forth herein will fully close out all relationships
between you and Continental.  You understand and agree that there are no
other commitments, express or implied, by Continental or any of its
affiliates, except those set forth in this Agreement and that this
Agreement supersedes any and all previous agreements, either written or
verbal, between you and Continental, including, without limitation, the
April 16, 1993 employment
 agreement.

     Upon the Termination Date, you shall be entitled to any benefits or
rights you have earned under the terms of any employee benefit plans by
which you were covered during your employment in accordance with the terms
of those plans applicable to your termination of employment.  On and after
the Termination Date, you shall accrue no further benefits under said
plans, except as specifically provided herein.

     In addition, Continental is offering you the benefits set forth in
this Agreement in recognition of your termination of employment. 
Continental intends that the benefits being offered hereby will fully close
out the relationship between Continental and its affiliates and you, and
any possible claims arising from or through that relationship. 
Consequently, Continental is making the benefits described in this
Agreement available to you only on the conditions that you sign and return
this Agreement, by which you elect to conclude the relationship on this
mutually satisfactory basis.

     You understand that you will be receiving the benefits discussed in
this Agreement as consideration for signing and returning the Agreement, by
which you agree to terminate your relationship with Continental and to
abide by the other obligations described herein.  You also understand and
agree by signing this Agreement that there are no other commitments,
express or implied, by Continental or any of its affiliates other than
those set forth in this Agreement.

I.   Benefits

     The benefits being offered to you are as follows:

     1.  Continental will pay you a lump sum amount equal to $741,404 upon
this Agreement becoming effective, enforceable and irrevocable in
accordance with its terms on the Effective Date (as defined in Section V,
paragraph 14 hereof).

     2.  For a period of two and one-half years following the Termination
Date, you will continue in Continental's group insurance programs
(including long-term disability insurance and group term life insurance at
the normal rate - one-half current annual salary) or be provided
substantially comparable benefits, unless you accept other employment that
provides such comparable benefits.  Your entitlement to benefit
continuation pursuant to the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act
of 1985 shall commence at the end of such period.

     3.  For two and one-half years after the Termination Date, and subject
to your surrender of all annual pass cards in your possession to
Continental (in accordance with Section V, paragraph 12 hereof), you and
your eligible family members shall be entitled to pass privileges on
Continental Airlines of the same type and priority as you received prior to
the Termination Date, subject to any changes in policy generally applicable
to officers of Continental Airlines still in the employ thereof.  Passes
shall be issued upon individual requests directly to the Continental
Airlines pass bureau.

     4.  Continental shall indemnify you against all losses, including
legal fees and expenses, arising from claims against you in connection with
your good-faith execution of your employment with Continental, to the
fullest extent permitted by the General Corporation Law of the State of
Delaware.

     5.  If you are liable for any excise tax imposed by Section 4999 of
the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 with respect to any benefits received by
you pursuant to this Agreement, Continental agrees to indemnify you for the
amount of such excise tax (and any penalties associated therewith) and for
the income, excise and employment taxes imposed on you with respect to any
payment pursuant to this paragraph 5.  If any claim for tax is asserted by
any taxing authority against you that, if successful, would result in
indemnification by Continental under this paragraph 5, you agree to
promptly notify Continental in writing of such fact.  You agree not to
settle, compromise, abandon or pay any such claim without Continental's
prior written consent.  You agree that Continental will have the right to
control all aspects of dealings with the Internal Revenue Service and any
litigation related to such claim.  If any such claim is made by any taxing
authority, Continental agrees to prosecute any contest or settlement of
such claim diligently.

     6.  Continental agrees to provide you with the outplacement services
of Reedie & Co., Inc., on terms and conditions Continental usually provides
to departing senior executives, for a period of up to six months from
either the Termination Date or the date of the termination of your
consulting arrangement with Continental, as you may elect.

II.  Consulting Period from Termination Date Through August 1, 1995

     During the consulting period from the Termination Date through August
1, 1995:

     1.  You will render consulting services to Continental.  You will
devote yourself substantially to the full-time performance of the duties
requested of you by the executive officer to whom you reported immediately
prior to the Termination Date.

     2.  You shall be paid semi-monthly in arrears at a per annum rate of
$350,000 through May 31, 1995.  From June 1, 1995, through July 31, 1995,

event not later than May 31, 1995.

     5.  If the final documents memorializing the GE and Boeing deals are
executed on or before August 1, 1995, you have the option to terminate your
consulting arrangement with Continental upon the date of such execution (or
any date thereafter prior to August 1, 1995), upon which termination you
would cease to earn the amount which would otherwise be payable to you
under Section II, paragraph 2 above.

     6.  Continental may terminate your employment and pay you no further
amounts (other than amounts already accrued) under Section II, paragraph 2
above at any time as a result of your death, disability (resulting in your
failure to perform your duties to Continental on a substantially full-time
basis for over 60 days within any 120-day period) or your willful
misconduct or gross neglect of duty.

III. Restrictive Covenants

consulting arrangement with Continental and for a period ending one year

V.   General Provisions

     1.  No Admission.  This Agreement does not constitute an admission of
liability of any kind by Continental or any of its affiliates.

     2.  Assigns.  (a)  This Agreement is personal to you and, without the
prior written consent of the Board of Directors of Continental, shall not
be assignable by you otherwise than by will or the laws of descent and
distribution.

     (b)  The terms of this Agreement shall be binding and inure to the
benefit of Continental and its affiliates and their respective successors
and assigns.

     3.  Entire Agreement.  This Agreement constitutes the entire
understanding between you and Continental and its affiliates with respect
to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes all prior understandings,

discharged only by an instrument in writing signed by the parties hereto.

     4.  Governing Law.  This Agreement shall be construed, enforced and
interpreted in accordance with applicable Federal law and the laws of the
State of Texas without reference to its principles of conflicts of law. 
The parties hereto agree that in the event either party brings an action or
proceeding to enforce such party's rights under this Agreement, the
prevailing party in such action or proceeding shall be entitled to receive

attorney's fees and expenses incurred as a result of such action or
proceeding.

     5.  Taxes.  All payments hereunder shall be subject to, and reduced
by, any applicable withholding taxes.  Continental believes that you are
not subject to any excise tax under Section 4999 of the Internal Revenue
Code of 1986 with respect to any amounts payable hereunder.  If any claim

successful, would result in indemnification by Continental under Section I,
paragraph 5, Continental agrees to prosecute any contest or settlement of
such claim diligently.  You agree not to file any returns or reports, or
otherwise take any positions, with applicable taxing authorities that are
inconsistent with that belief.  The obligations of Continental pursuant to

that would affect or conflict with any of your obligations hereunder, and

violate any contract by which you are bound.

     8.  Enforceability.  The failure of either party at any time to
enforce any of the provisions of this Agreement or to require performance
by the other party of any provision hereof shall not be construed to be a
waiver of such provisions or to affect the validity of this Agreement, or
of any part hereof, or of the right of either party thereafter to enforce
each and every provision of this Agreement in accordance with its terms.

     9.  Confidentiality.  You shall treat this Agreement as confidential
and will not disclose its existence or contents except as may be required
by applicable law.

     11.  Severability.  If any provision of this Agreement is determined
to be so broad as to be unenforceable, such provision shall be interpreted
to be only so broad as is enforceable.  The unenforceability or invalidity
or any provision of this Agreement, or any part thereof, shall not render
any other provision of this Agreement invalid or unenforceable.

     12.  Return of Property.  Except as is otherwise specifically provided
in this Agreement, upon your Termination Date (or, if necessary, upon the
termination of your consulting arrangement with Continental), you will

property of Continental and its affiliates such as keys, company credit

America.

which such amount shall be substituted for the specified amount set forth
in this Section.

      5.  Termination of Employment - 

          (a)  A "Termination of Employment" shall be defined as any one of

of duty by the Executive, (B) retirement under the ordinary retirement
program of the Company, (C) disability of the Executive resulting in
compensated absence from his duties to the Company on a full-time basis for
over 180 days or (D) death of the Executive:  (ii) the termination of the
Executive's employment by the Executive after providing the Company with
ten business days' prior written notice that the executive is terminating
employment because of (A) a material reduction in the responsibilities or
title of the Executive or the corporate amenities to which he was entitled
immediately prior thereto or (B) a reduction of the Executive's cash
compensation by more than 10% below the highest annual salary from time to
time in effect for the Executive; provided, however, that no Termination of
Employment shall occur pursuant to the preceding clause (ii) if the
circumstances described in the preceding clauses (ii)(A) and (ii)(B) are
corrected prior to the expiration of ten business days from the date the
Executive provided notice to the Company of his intent to terminate
employment.

          (b)  Upon a Termination of Employment, or upon the expiration of
long term disability insurance benefits (prior to the Executive's regular
retirement date) while Executive remains disabled, the Company will pay the
Executive,  (subject to the provisions of Section 9 hereof) as severance
pay or liquidated damages, or both, a lump sum amount equal to (i) 200% of
his then current Annual Compensation from the Company; plus, (ii) that
amount due to such Executive under his previous Employment Agreement due to
1992 pay reduction in excess of ten percent of Executive's stated
compensation under such previous Employment Agreement; plus, (iii) that
cumulated amount of pay reductions permitted by Section 5(f) hereof in
excess of 10% of the Executive's annual base salary set forth in Section 4
of this Agreement, from the date of this Agreement until the date of
Termination of Employment.  "Annual Compensation" shall mean:  Annualized

hereof.

          (c)  Executive shall be under no obligation to mitigate damage to
the Company hereunder and no future earnings by Executive from any source
shall be payable to the Company or be subject to offset pursuant to this
Agreement.

          (d)  For a period of two and one-half years following Termination
of Employment, the Executive shall continue in the Company's group
insurance programs, including long-term disability insurance (or be
provided substantially comparable benefits), provided he has not accepted
other employment that provides comparable benefits.  The Executive's
entitlement to benefit continuation pursuant to the Consolidated Omnibus
Budget Reconciliation Act shall commence at the end of such period.

          (e)  For two and one-half years following Termination of
Employment, and provided all annual pass cards in the possession of the
Executive have been surrendered to the Company, the Executive and his
eligible family members shall be entitled to pass privileges on Continental
Airlines of the same type and priority as the Executive received prior to
the Termination of Employment, subject to any changes in policy generally
applicable to officers of Continental Airlines still in the employ thereof. 
Passes shall be issued upon individual requests directly to the Continental
Airlines pass bureau.

          (f)  The Company shall be entitled to continue pay reductions in
effect on the date of this Agreement for so long as, and to the extent
that, such pay reductions are in effect for the Company's work force in
general.  Such continuation of previous pay reductions shall not constitute
a violation of Section 5(a)(ii)(B) hereof.

grossed-up after-tax basis against any tax liability (including, without
limitation, excise taxes incurred pursuant to IRC Paragraph 4999) resulting
from the payment of severance or the provision of other benefits following
Termination of Employment pursuant to this Agreement, to the extent that
Executive's tax payments are at a higher percentage of total income than
they would have been absent such payment of severance or provision of
benefits.

      8.  Life Insurance - The Company shall maintain life insurance for
the Executive in the amount of the severance payable to Executive pursuant
to Section 5 hereof.  In the absence of such life insurance, the Company
shall pay Executive's beneficiary or beneficiaries an amount equal to such
severance in the event of the death of Executive while employed by the
Company.  The Company shall hold the Executive harmless from any tax
liability accruing to Executive as a result of the purchase of such
insurance, and likewise shall hold Executive's estate, heirs and assigns
harmless from any tax liability accruing because of the failure to maintain
such insurance.

      9.  Post-Termination Obligations - All payments and benefits due to
the Executive hereunder shall be subject to the Executive's compliance with
the following provisions during the applicability of this Agreement and for
one full year after the expiration or termination hereof:

          (a)  The Executive shall, upon reasonable notice, furnish such
information and proper assistance to the Company and its affiliates as may
reasonably be required in connection with any litigation in which it or any
of its affiliates is, or may become, a party.

Company or its affiliates, officers, directors or employees shall be
submitted for approval in writing from the Company's public relations and
legal departments.

          If the Executive fails to comply with the above obligations, the
Company may cease extending benefits to the Executive and may recover by
appropriate action instituted in any court of competent jurisdiction any
severance payments theretofore paid to the Executive.

     10.  Consolidation, Merger, Sale of Assets - This Agreement shall be
binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Executive and the Company and

ARTICLE 7.
       Changes to the Detail Specification.

       7.1    Development Changes.  Boeing may, at its own expense and
without Buyer's consent, incorporate Development Changes in the Detail
Specification and the Aircraft prior to delivery to Buyer.  Development
Changes are defined as changes to the basic specification for Model -
737-500 aircraft that neither affect the Aircraft Purchase Price nor
adversely affect Aircraft delivery, guaranteed weight, guaranteed per-
formance or compliance with the interchangeability or replaceability
requirements set forth in the Detail Specification.  Development Chang-
es are changes deemed necessary to correct defects, prevent delay or
ensure compliance with this Agreement.  If Boeing makes changes pursu-
ant to this paragraph, Boeing will promptly notify Buyer of such chang-
es.

       7.2    Change Orders.  The Detail Specification and associated
provisions of this Agreement may be amended by Change Order or other
written agreement, which will state the particular changes to be made
and any effect on design, performance, weight, balance, time of deliv-
ery, Aircraft Basic Price and Advance Payment Base Price.

PRICE ADJUSTMENT DUE TO
ECONOMIC FLUCTUATIONS
AIRFRAME PRICE ADJUSTMENT
(1992 Base Price)

(Relating to Block A, B and C Aircraft)

1.   Formula.

     The Airframe Price Adjustment will be determined at the
time of Aircraft delivery in accordance with the following
formula:

     Pa = (P)(L + M - 1)

     Where:

       Pa = Airframe Price Adjustment.

       L =  .65 x  ECI 
                  116.2

       M =  .35 x  ICI 
                  115.9

       P =  Aircraft Basic Price (as set forth in Arti-
            cle 3.2 of this Agreement) less the base price
            of Engines (as defined in this Exhibit D) in the
            amount of:

       ECI =         A value using the "Employment Cost
            Index for workers in aerospace manufacturing"
            (aircraft manufacturing, standard industrial
            classification code 3721, compensation, base
            month and year June 1989 = 100), as released by
            the Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Department
            of Labor on a quarterly basis for the months of
            March, June, September and December, calculated
            as follows: A three-month arithmetic average
            value (expressed as a decimal and rounded to the
            nearest tenth) will be determined using the
            months set forth in the table below for the
            applicable Aircraft, with the released Employ-
            ment Cost Index value described above for the
            month of March also being used for the months of
            January and February; the value for June also
            used for April and May; the value for September
            also used for July and August; and the value for
            December also used for October and November.

       ICI =         The three-month arithmetic average of
            the released monthly values for the Industrial
            Commodities Index as set forth in the "Producer
            Prices and Price Index" (Base Year 1982 = 100)
            as released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics,
            U.S. Department of Labor values (expressed as a
            decimal and rounded to the nearest tenth) for
            the months set forth in the table below for the
            applicable Aircraft.

       In determining the value of L, the ratio of ECI di-
vided by 116.2 will be expressed as a decimal rounded to the
nearest ten-thousandth and then multiplied by .65 with the
resulting value also expressed as a decimal and rounded to
the nearest ten-thousandth.

       In determining the value of M, the ratio of ICI di-
vided by 115.9 will be expressed as a decimal rounded to the
nearest ten-thousandth and then multiplied by .35 with the
resulting value also expressed as a decimal and rounded to
the nearest ten-thousandth.

                     REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT]

The following definitions of B and D will apply:

          [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATE-
          LY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION
          PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT]

2.     If at the time of delivery of an Aircraft Boeing is
unable to determine the Airframe Price Adjustment because
the applicable values to be used to determine the ECI and
ICI have not been released by the Bureau of Labor Statis-
tics, then:

       2.1   The Airframe Price Adjustment, to be used at
the time of delivery of each of the Aircraft, will be deter-
mined by utilizing the escalation provisions set forth
above.  The values released by the Bureau of Labor Statis-
tics and available to Boeing 30 days prior to scheduled
month of Aircraft delivery will be used to determine the ECI
and ICI values for the applicable months (including those
noted as preliminary by the Bureau of Labor Statistics) to
calculate the Airframe Price Adjustment.  If no values have
been released for an applicable month, the provisions set
forth in Paragraph 2.2 below will apply.  If prior to deliv-
ery of an Aircraft the U.S. Department of Labor changes the
base year for determination of the ECI or ICI values as
defined above, such rebased values will be incorporated in
the Airframe Price Adjustment calculation.  The payment by
Buyer to Boeing of the amount of the Purchase Price for such
Aircraft, as determined at the time of Aircraft delivery,
will be deemed to be the payment for such Aircraft required
at the delivery thereof.

       2.2   If prior to delivery of an Aircraft the U.S.
Department of Labor substantially revises the methodology
used for the determination of the values to be used to de-
termine the ECI and ICI values (in contrast to benchmark
adjustments or other corrections of previously released
values), or for any reason has not released values needed to
determine the applicable Aircraft Airframe Price Adjustment,
the parties will, prior to delivery of any such Aircraft,
select a substitute for such values from data published by
the Bureau of Labor Statistics or other similar data report-
ed by non-governmental United States organizations, such
substitute to lead in application to the same adjustment
result, insofar as possible, as would have been achieved by
continuing the use of the original values as they may have
fluctuated during the applicable time period.  Appropriate
revision of the formula will be made as required to reflect
any substitute values.  However, if within 24 months from
delivery of the Aircraft the Bureau of Labor Statistics
should resume releasing values for the months needed to
determine the Airframe Price Adjustment, such values will be
used to determine any increase or decrease in the Airframe
Price Adjustment for the Aircraft from that determined at
the time of delivery of such Aircraft.

       2.3   In the event escalation provisions are made
non-enforceable or otherwise rendered null and void by any
agency of the United States Government, the parties agree,
to the extent they may lawfully do so, to equitably adjust
the Purchase Price of any affected Aircraft to reflect an
allowance for increases or decreases in labor compensation
and material costs occurring since February, 1992, which is
consistent with the applicable provisions of paragraph 1 of
this Exhibit D.

       2.4   If required, Boeing will submit either a sup-
plemental invoice or refund the amounts due Buyer as appro-
priate to reflect any increase or decrease in the Airframe
Price Adjustment for the Aircraft from that determined at
the time of delivery of such Aircraft.  Any payments due
Boeing or Buyer will be made with reasonable promptness.

3.     For the calculations herein, the values released by
the Bureau of Labor Statistics and available to Boeing 30
days prior to scheduled month of Aircraft delivery will be
used to determine the ECI and ICI values for the applicable
months (including those noted as preliminary by the Bureau
of Labor Statistics) to calculate the Airframe Price Adjust-
ment.

  Note:       Any rounding of a number, as required under
              this Exhibit D with respect to escalation of
              the airframe price, will be accomplished as
              follows:  if the first digit of the portion to
              be dropped from the number to be rounded is
              five or greater, the preceding digit will be
              raised to the next higher number.

PRICE ADJUSTMENT DUE TO
ECONOMIC FLUCTUATIONS
AIRFRAME PRICE ADJUSTMENT
(1992 Base Price)

(Relating to Block A Aircraft)

1.   Formula.

     The Airframe Price Adjustment will be determined at the
time of Aircraft delivery in accordance with the following
formula:

     Pa = (P)(L + M - 1)

     Where:

       Pa = Airframe Price Adjustment.

       L =  .65 x  ECI 
                  116.2

       M =  .35 x  ICI 
                  115.9

       P =  Aircraft Basic Price (as set forth in
            Article 3.2 of this Agreement) less the base
            price of Engines (as defined in this Exhibit D)
            in the amount of [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL OMITTED
            AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND
            EXCHANGE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR
            CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT].

     ECI =  A value using the "Employment Cost Index for
            workers in aerospace manufacturing" (aircraft
            manufacturing, standard industrial
            classification code 3721, compensation, base
            month and year June 1989 = 100), as released by
            the Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Department
            of Labor on a quarterly basis for the months of
            March, June, September and December, calculated
            as follows: A three-month arithmetic average
            value (expressed as a decimal and rounded to the
            nearest tenth) will be determined using the
            months set forth in the table below for the
            applicable Aircraft, with the released
            Employment Cost Index value described above for
            the month of March also being used for the
            months of January and February; the value for
            June also used for April and May; the value for
            September also used for July and August; and the
            value for December also used for October and
            November.

     ICI =  The three-month arithmetic average of the
            released monthly values for the Industrial
            Commodities Index as set forth in the "Producer
            Prices and Price Index" (Base Year 1982 = 100)
            as released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics,
            U.S. Department of Labor values (expressed as a
            decimal and rounded to the nearest tenth) for
            the months set forth in the table below for the
            applicable Aircraft.

       In determining the value of L, the ratio of ECI
divided by 116.2 will be expressed as a decimal rounded to
the nearest ten-thousandth and then multiplied by .65 with
the resulting value also expressed as a decimal and rounded
to the nearest ten-thousandth.

       In determining the value of M, the ratio of ICI
divided by 115.9 will be expressed as a decimal rounded to
the nearest ten-thousandth and then multiplied by .35 with
the resulting value also expressed as a decimal and rounded
to the nearest ten-thousandth.

       [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY
       WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION PURSUANT
       TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT]

The following definitions of B and D will apply:

       [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY
       WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION PURSUANT
       TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT]

2.     If at the time of delivery of an Aircraft Boeing is
unable to determine the Airframe Price Adjustment because
the applicable values to be used to determine the ECI and
ICI have not been released by the Bureau of Labor
Statistics, then:

       2.1    The Airframe Price Adjustment, to be used at
the time of delivery of each of the Aircraft, will be
determined by utilizing the escalation provisions set forth
above.  The values released by the Bureau of Labor
Statistics and available to Boeing 30 days prior to
scheduled month of Aircraft delivery will be used to
determine the ECI and ICI values for the applicable months
(including those noted as preliminary by the Bureau of Labor
Statistics) to calculate the Airframe Price Adjustment.  If
no values have been released for an applicable month, the
provisions set forth in Paragraph 2.2 below will apply.  If
prior to delivery of an Aircraft the U.S. Department of
Labor changes the base year for determination of the ECI or
ICI values as defined above, such rebased values will be
incorporated in the Airframe Price Adjustment calculation. 
The payment by Buyer to Boeing of the amount of the Purchase
Price for such Aircraft, as determined at the time of
Aircraft delivery, will be deemed to be the payment for such
Aircraft required at the delivery thereof.

       2.2    If prior to delivery of an Aircraft the U.S.
Department of Labor substantially revises the methodology
used for the determination of the values to be used to
determine the ECI and ICI values (in contrast to benchmark
adjustments or other corrections of previously released
values), or for any reason has not released values needed to
determine the applicable Aircraft Airframe Price Adjustment,
the parties will, prior to delivery of any such Aircraft,
select a substitute for such values from data published by
the Bureau of Labor Statistics or other similar data
reported by non-governmental United States organizations,
such substitute to lead in application to the same
adjustment result, insofar as possible, as would have been
achieved by continuing the use of the original values as
they may have fluctuated during the applicable time period. 
Appropriate revision of the formula will be made as required
to reflect any substitute values.  However, if within 24
months from delivery of the Aircraft the Bureau of Labor
Statistics should resume releasing values for the months
needed to determine the Airframe Price Adjustment, such
values will be used to determine any increase or decrease in
the Airframe Price Adjustment for the Aircraft from that
determined at the time of delivery of such Aircraft.

       2.3    In the event escalation provisions are made
non-enforceable or otherwise rendered null and void by any
agency of the United States Government, the parties agree,
to the extent they may lawfully do so, to equitably adjust
the Purchase Price of any affected Aircraft to reflect an
allowance for increases or decreases in labor compensation
and material costs occurring since February, 1992, which is
consistent with the applicable provisions of paragraph 1 of
this Exhibit D.

       2.4    If required, Boeing will submit either a
supplemental invoice or refund the amounts due Buyer as
appropriate to reflect any increase or decrease in the
Airframe Price Adjustment for the Aircraft from that
determined at the time of delivery of such Aircraft.  Any
payments due Boeing or Buyer will be made with reasonable
promptness.

3.     For the calculations herein, the values released by
the Bureau of Labor Statistics and available to Boeing 30
days prior to scheduled month of Aircraft delivery will be
used to determine the ECI and ICI values for the applicable
months (including those noted as preliminary by the Bureau
of Labor Statistics) to calculate the Airframe Price
Adjustment.

Note:  Any rounding of a number, as required under this
       Exhibit D with respect to escalation of the airframe
       price, will be accomplished as follows:  if the first
       digit of the portion to be dropped from the number to
       be rounded is five or greater, the preceding digit
       will be raised to the next higher number.

PRICE ADJUSTMENT DUE TO
ECONOMIC FLUCTUATIONS
AIRFRAME PRICE ADJUSTMENT
(1992 Base Price)
                            
(Relating to Block A Aircraft)

1.     Formula.

       The Airframe Price Adjustment will be determined at
the time of Aircraft delivery in accordance with the
following formula:

       Pa = (P)(L + M - 1)

       Where:

       Pa = Airframe Price Adjustment.

       L =  .65 x  ECI 
                  116.2

       M =  .35 x  ICI 
                  115.9

       P =  Aircraft Basic Price (as set forth in
            Article 3.2 of this Agreement) less the base
            price of Engines (as defined in this Exhibit D)
            in the amount of [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL OMITTED
            AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND
            EXCHANGE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR
            CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT].

     ECI =  A value using the "Employment Cost Index for
            workers in aerospace manufacturing" (aircraft
            manufacturing, standard industrial
            classification code 3721, compensation, base
            month and year June 1989 = 100), as released by
            the Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Department
            of Labor on a quarterly basis for the months of
            March, June, September and December, calculated
            as follows: A three-month arithmetic average
            value (expressed as a decimal and rounded to the
            nearest tenth) will be determined using the
            months set forth in the table below for the
            applicable Aircraft, with the released
            Employment Cost Index value described above for
            the month of March also being used for the
            months of January and February; the value for
            June also used for April and May; the value for
            September also used for July and August; and the
            value for December also used for October and
            November.

     ICI =  The three-month arithmetic average of the
            released monthly values for the Industrial
            Commodities Index as set forth in the "Producer
            Prices and Price Index" (Base Year 1982 = 100)
            as released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics,
            U.S. Department of Labor values (expressed as a
            decimal and rounded to the nearest tenth) for
            the months set forth in the table below for the
            applicable Aircraft.

       In determining the value of L, the ratio of ECI
divided by 116.2 will be expressed as a decimal rounded to
the nearest ten-thousandth and then multiplied by .65 with
the resulting value also expressed as a decimal and rounded
to the nearest ten-thousandth.

       In determining the value of M, the ratio of ICI
divided by 115.9 will be expressed as a decimal rounded to
the nearest ten-thousandth and then multiplied by .35 with
the resulting value also expressed as a decimal and rounded
to the nearest ten-thousandth.

       [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY
       WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION PURSUANT
       TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT]

The following definitions of B and D will apply:

       [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY
       WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION PURSUANT
       TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT]


2.     If at the time of delivery of an Aircraft Boeing is
unable to determine the Airframe Price Adjustment because
the applicable values to be used to determine the ECI and
ICI have not been released by the Bureau of Labor
Statistics, then:

       2.1    The Airframe Price Adjustment, to be used at
the time of delivery of each of the Aircraft, will be
determined by utilizing the escalation provisions set forth
above.  The values released by the Bureau of Labor
Statistics and available to Boeing 30 days prior to
scheduled month of Aircraft delivery will be used to
determine the ECI and ICI values for the applicable months 
(including those noted as preliminary by the Bureau of Labor
Statistics) to calculate the Airframe Price Adjustment.  If
no values have been released for an applicable month, the
provisions set forth in Paragraph 2.2 below will apply.  If
prior to delivery of an Aircraft the U.S. Department of
Labor changes the base year for determination of the ECI or
ICI values as defined above, such rebased values will be
incorporated in the Airframe Price Adjustment calculation. 
The payment by Buyer to Boeing of the amount of the Purchase
Price for such Aircraft, as determined at the time of
Aircraft delivery, will be deemed to be the payment for such
Aircraft required at the delivery thereof.

       2.2    If prior to delivery of an Aircraft the U.S.
Department of Labor substantially revises the methodology
used for the determination of the values to be used to
determine the ECI and ICI values (in contrast to benchmark
adjustments or other corrections of previously released
values), or for any reason has not released values needed to
determine the applicable Aircraft Airframe Price Adjustment,
the parties will, prior to delivery of any such Aircraft,
select a substitute for such values from data published by
the Bureau of Labor Statistics or other similar data
reported by non-governmental United States organizations,
such substitute to lead in application to the same
adjustment result, insofar as possible, as would have been
achieved by continuing the use of the original values as
they may have fluctuated during the applicable time period. 
Appropriate revision of the formula will be made as required
to reflect any substitute values.  However, if within 24
months from delivery of the Aircraft the Bureau of Labor
Statistics should resume releasing values for the months
needed to determine the Airframe Price Adjustment, such
values will be used to determine any increase or decrease in
the Airframe Price Adjustment for the Aircraft from that
determined at the time of delivery of such Aircraft.

       2.3    In the event escalation provisions are made
non-enforceable or otherwise rendered null and void by any
agency of the United States Government, the parties agree,
to the extent they may lawfully do so, to equitably adjust
the Purchase Price of any affected Aircraft to reflect an
allowance for increases or decreases in labor compensation
and material costs occurring since February, 1992, which is
consistent with the applicable provisions of paragraph 1 of
this Exhibit D.

       2.4    If required, Boeing will submit either a
supplemental invoice or refund the amounts due Buyer as
appropriate to reflect any increase or decrease in the
Airframe Price Adjustment for the Aircraft from that
determined at the time of delivery of such Aircraft.  Any
payments due Boeing or Buyer will be made with reasonable
promptness.

3.     For the calculations herein, the values released by
the Bureau of Labor Statistics and available to Boeing 30
days prior to scheduled month of Aircraft delivery will be
used to determine the ECI and ICI values for the applicable
months (including those noted as preliminary by the Bureau
of Labor Statistics) to calculate the Airframe Price
Adjustment.

Note:  Any rounding of a number, as required under this
       Exhibit D with respect to escalation of the airframe
       price, will be accomplished as follows:  if the first
       digit of the portion to be dropped from the number to
       be rounded is five or greater, the preceding digit
       will be raised to the next higher number.

PRICE ADJUSTMENT DUE TO
ECONOMIC FLUCTUATIONS
AIRFRAME PRICE ADJUSTMENT
(1992 Base Price)

(Relating to Block A Aircraft)

1.     Formula.

       The Airframe Price Adjustment will be determined at
the time of Aircraft delivery in accordance with the
following formula:

       Pa = (P)(L + M - 1)

       Where:

       Pa = Airframe Price Adjustment.

       L =  .65 x  ECI 
                  116.2

       M =  .35 x  ICI 
                  115.9

       P =  Aircraft Basic Price (as set forth in
            Article 3.2 of this Agreement) less the base
            price of Engines (as defined in this Exhibit D)
            in the amount of [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL OMITTED
            AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND
            EXCHANGE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR
            CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT].

     ECI =  A value using the "Employment Cost Index for
            workers in aerospace manufacturing" (aircraft
            manufacturing, standard industrial
            classification code 3721, compensation, base
            month and year June 1989 = 100), as released by
            the Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Department
            of Labor on a quarterly basis for the months of
            March, June, September and December, calculated
            as follows: A three-month arithmetic average
            value (expressed as a decimal and rounded to the
            nearest tenth) will be determined using the
            months set forth in the table below for the
            applicable Aircraft, with the released
            Employment Cost Index value described above for
            the month of March also being used for the
            months of January and February; the value for
            June also used for April and May; the value for
            September also used for July and August; and the
            value for December also used for October and
            November.

     ICI =  The three-month arithmetic average of the
            released monthly values for the Industrial
            Commodities Index as set forth in the "Producer
            Prices and Price Index" (Base Year 1982 = 100)
            as released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics,
            U.S. Department of Labor values (expressed as a
            decimal and rounded to the nearest tenth) for
            the months set forth in the table below for the
            applicable Aircraft.

       In determining the value of L, the ratio of ECI
divided by 116.2 will be expressed as a decimal rounded to
the nearest ten-thousandth and then multiplied by .65 with
the resulting value also expressed as a decimal and rounded
to the nearest ten-thousandth.

       In determining the value of M, the ratio of ICI
divided by 115.9 will be expressed as a decimal rounded to
the nearest ten-thousandth and then multiplied by .35 with
the resulting value also expressed as a decimal and rounded
to the nearest ten-thousandth.

       [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY
       WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION PURSUANT
       TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT]

The following definitions of B and D will apply:

          [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL OMITTED AND FILED
          SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE
          COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL
          TREATMENT]

2.     If at the time of delivery of an Aircraft Boeing is
unable to determine the Airframe Price Adjustment because
the applicable values to be used to determine the ECI and
ICI have not been released by the Bureau of Labor
Statistics, then:

       2.1   The Airframe Price Adjustment, to be used at
the time of delivery of each of the Aircraft, will be
determined by utilizing the escalation provisions set forth
above.  The values released by the Bureau of Labor
Statistics and available to Boeing 30 days prior to
scheduled Aircraft delivery will be used to determine the
ECI and ICI values for the applicable months (including
those noted as preliminary by the Bureau of Labor
Statistics) to calculate the Airframe Price Adjustment.  If
no values have been released for an applicable month, the
provisions set forth in Paragraph 2.2 below will apply.  If
prior to delivery of an Aircraft the U.S. Department of
Labor changes the base year for determination of the ECI or
ICI values as defined above, such rebased values will be
incorporated in the Airframe Price Adjustment calculation. 
The payment by Buyer to Boeing of the amount of the Purchase
Price for such Aircraft, as determined at the time of
Aircraft delivery, will be deemed to be the payment for such
Aircraft required at the delivery thereof.

       2.2   If prior to delivery of an Aircraft the U.S.
Department of Labor substantially revises the methodology
used for the determination of the values to be used to
determine the ECI and ICI values (in contrast to benchmark
adjustments or other corrections of previously released
values), or for any reason has not released values needed to
determine the applicable Aircraft Airframe Price Adjustment,
the parties will, prior to delivery of any such Aircraft,
select a substitute for such values from data published by
the Bureau of Labor Statistics or other similar data
reported by non-governmental United States organizations,
such substitute to lead in application to the same
adjustment result, insofar as possible, as would have been
achieved by continuing the use of the original values as
they may have fluctuated during the applicable time period. 
Appropriate revision of the formula will be made as required
to reflect any substitute values.  However, if within 24
months from delivery of the Aircraft the Bureau of Labor
Statistics should resume releasing values for the months
needed to determine the Airframe Price Adjustment, such
values will be used to determine any increase or decrease in
the Airframe Price Adjustment for the Aircraft from that
determined at the time of delivery of such Aircraft.

       2.3   In the event escalation provisions are made
non-enforceable or otherwise rendered null and void by any
agency of the United States Government, the parties agree,
to the extent they may lawfully do so, to equitably adjust
the Purchase Price of any affected Aircraft to reflect an
allowance for increases or decreases in labor compensation
and material costs occurring since February, 1992, which is
consistent with the applicable provisions of paragraph 1 of
this Exhibit D.

3.     For the calculations herein, the values released by
the Bureau of Labor Statistics and available to Boeing 30
days prior to scheduled Aircraft delivery will be used to
determine the ECI and ICI values for the applicable months
(including those noted as preliminary by the Bureau of Labor
Statistics) to calculate the Airframe Price Adjustment.

Note:  Any rounding of a number, as required under this
       Exhibit D with respect to escalation of the airframe
       price, will be accomplished as follows:  if the first
       digit of the portion to be dropped from the number to
       be rounded is five or greater, the preceding digit
       will be raised to the next higher number.

                                          Exhibit 10.15(a)

                         AGREEMENT


       The City and County of Denver ("CCD") and
Continental Airlines, Inc. ("Continental"), and United Air
Lines, Inc. ("United"), as signatory airlines ("Carriers")
pursuant to their respective Denver International Airport
("DIA") Airport Use and Facilities Lease Agreements with
CCD (sometimes hereafter the "Lease" or "Leases" as usage
requires) hereby agree as follows:

1.     Continental Gate Lease Commitments:  Continental
commits to leasing gates on Concourse A at DIA, on a
preferential use basis, pursuant to the further terms and
conditions hereof, in the number and location, as follows:

CARRIER      NUMBER           LOCATION         LEASE TERM

Continental   10      A32, A34, A36, A38, A40,   5 years
                      A42, A44, A45, A47, A49 

The locations and numbers specified above are intended to
be in lieu of the locations and numbers specified in
Continental's Lease, and such Lease will be revised to
reflect the appropriate deletions and additions, including
without limitation all associated operations and other
space; provided, however, that Continental will lease
terminal and concourse space totaling approximately
113,488 square feet (including club room, mail facility,
and all other space).  All such concourse space shall be
located on Concourse A.  The parties
 recognize and
acknowledge that a portion of the space included in
Continental's 113,488 square feet has not been
specifically identified as of the date of this Agreement
and that CCD will cooperate with Continental to designate
such particular space as best meets its needs and
objectives, provided that the final designation of space
shall be approved by CCD in the exercise of its reasonable
discretion.  CCD and the Carriers expressly waive any
argument that the lack of specificity as to the identity
of the particular square feet leased renders any portion
of this Agreement unenforceable.  Continental will have
the option to renew or not, in its sole discretion, and
without any liquidated damages payment, its lease for five
years at a reduced level of occupancy commensurate with
three gates and associated space on Concourse A,
consistent with any minimum space requirements for a three
gate lease that may be imposed generally upon airlines by
CCD at such time.

2.  Rates and Charges:  The methodology for calculating
airline rates and charges is hereby modified to reflect
the provisions of this Agreement and such modifications
are reflected on attached Exhibit A, which shall become
Revised Exhibit F to the leases of all signatory airlines;
provided, however, that in the event of any inconsistency
or ambiguity between this Agreement and Exhibit A hereto,
this Agreement shall control.  Rates and charges shall
remain subject to the audit rights of all Carriers set
forth in paragraph 6 below.  The Carriers agree that for a
period of five years CCD may (but is not required to)
include up to 215,000 square feet of unleased operational
and office space as "undeveloped space"; provided,
however, that as additional square footage is leased after
DBO, CCD agrees that it shall reduce such amount of
undeveloped space accordingly.  

3.     Increased Amortization:  Except and only to the
extent, if any, that the rights of the owners of its
airport revenue bonds (including without limitation rights
arising from the rate maintenance covenant) are not
thereby materially impaired, CCD will cause, by January 1,
1997 (or as soon thereafter as possible consistent with
CCD's aforesaid obligations to owners of its airport
revenue bonds), amortization of Capital Fund contributions
to the planning, development, and construction of the new
airport project, which CCD represents to be approximately
$264 million as of the date hereof, over a thirty-year
term, which costs are currently to be amortized by CCD
over a fifteen-year term.  In addition, to the extent that
United is reimbursed by CCD pursuant to the September 1,
1994 agreement between United and CCD, as amended on
October 14, 1994, for (1) payments to BAE Automated
Systems, Inc. for the costs of the modifications to the
automated baggage system, for amounts not to exceed $35
million, and (2) if CCD reimburses United for costs for
the modification of the automated baggage system paid to
parties other than BAE Automated Systems, Inc., for
amounts not to exceed $10 million, such amounts shall be
repaid to CCD by United over a thirty-year amortization
period effective as of the date of any such
reimbursements.

4.     Right of First Refusal/Pedestrian Bridge:  United
hereby releases any claim of right of first refusal, which
it has pursuant to its agreement with CCD, as to all gates
and other space on Concourse A, except gates A32, A34,
A36, A38, A40, A42, A44, A45, A47, and A49 and other space
related to such gates, as to which gates and space
United's right of first refusal shall continue, and fur-
ther, United releases any claims to any restrictions on
any aspect of the use, appearance or function of the
pedestrian bridge to Concourse A.

5.     Certain Baggage System Issues:

       a.  Rates and Charges for Baggage Systems. 
       CCD and Carriers hereby agree that for
       purposes of rates and charges at DIA there
       are three separate and distinct baggage
       systems known as the Concourse A Automated
       Baggage System ("AABS"), the Concourse B, or
       United Automated Baggage System ("UABS"),
       and the Rapistan-Demag Backup Baggage System
       (the "BBS").  Therefore, all rates and
       charges for equipment and certain space
       associated with the DIA baggage systems, as
       defined and set forth herein, shall be
       allocated on the basis of these three
       separate systems as follows:

   i.  All baggage system equipment
       (hardware) located on Concourse A ("A
       Sortation Equipment") shall be part
       of the AABS and shall be charged
       exclusively to airlines operating
       from Concourse A on the basis of
       their respective passenger
       enplanements.  All space associated
       with such A Sortation Equipment shall
       be allocated to airlines operating
       from Concourse A on the basis of such
       airlines' rented square feet on such
       concourse as a percentage of total
       rentable square feet on such
       concourse.  

  ii.  All baggage system equipment
       (hardware) located on Concourse B ("B
       Sortation Equipment") shall be part
       of the UABS and shall be charged
       exclusively to airlines operating
       from Concourse B.  All space
       associated with such B Sortation
       Equipment shall be allocated to
       airlines operating from Concourse B
       on the basis of such airlines' rented
       square feet on such concourse as a
       percentage of total rentable square
       feet on such concourse.  

 iii.  All baggage system equipment
       (hardware) located on Concourse C ("C
       Sortation Equipment") as of DBO, but
       not the space associated therewith
       nor any subsequent C Sortation
       Equipment or trackage, shall be a
       part of and charged to the UABS and
       shall be charged exclusively to
       airlines operating from Concourse B;
       provided, however, that if the C
       Sortation Equipment is utilized by an
       airline or airlines operating on
       Concourse C, then said C Sortation
       Equipment shall no longer be charged
       to the airline or airlines operating
       on Concourse B.

  iv.  All baggage system equipment
       (hardware) for the AABS and the UABS
       located in the landside terminal and
       the tunnel, and space associated with
       said hardware located in the landside
       terminal, baggage system maintenance
       areas, and all control room equipment
       and certain space in the landside
       terminal and tunnel for the AABS and
       UABS (collectively the "Spine
       Equipment and Space") shall be
       allocated on the basis of 65% to the
       UABS, and thus to airlines serving
       Concourse B, and 35% to the AABS, and
       thus to airlines serving Concourse A,
       and shall be further allocated among
       such airlines on the respective
       Concourses on the basis of their
       origination and destination passenger
       traffic; provided, however, that
       Continental, for itself, its
       successors, and assigns, hereby
       agrees that in the event it no longer
       operates at DIA but remains an
       operating airline during the 5 years
       following DBO, it, or its successors
       or assigns, shall be responsible to
       pay, during such initial five-year
       term, a share of the 35% of the Spine
       Equipment and Space based on its
       actual 1995 DIA origination and
       destination passenger traffic, but
       not less than 800,000 origination and
       destination passengers.  In the event
       that Continental ceases operation
       without a successor or assign, then
       the 35% share of the Spine Equipment
       and Space shall be paid as follows: 
       For each six-month period after the
       commencement of the assessment of
       charges for the AABS pursuant to
       subparagraph a.vii hereof, the
       Concourse A airlines shall
       collectively pay 100% of their 35%
       share of the Spine Equipment and
       Space, unless the total origination
       and destination traffic on
       Concourse A is below 1.0 million
       passengers.  In that event, the A
       Concourse airlines shall be charged
       for the AABS share of the Spine
       Equipment and Space costs, using the
       1.0 million passenger level as the
       "denominator" of origination and
       destination traffic on Concourse A
       for such six-month period and using
       the airlines' actual origination and
       destination traffic as the numerator,
       with the resulting quotient
       multiplied by the 35% charge for the
       Spine Equipment and Space for that
       six-month period.  The balance of the
       35% share of the Spine Equipment and
       Space not charged to any airline
       under this methodology shall, subject
       to all prior requirements of CCD's
       bond ordinances applicable to the
       airport or airport system, be paid by
       net revenues of DIA.  If for any
       reason DIA net revenues are
       insufficient or otherwise cannot be
       used to pay such costs, then each
       Concourse A signatory airline shall
       have the right to move to Concourse C
       to the extent available space exists,
       and be subject to rates and charges
       as if such airline were on
       Concourse C whether or not such
       airline is actually able to obtain
       space on such Concourse.

   v.  The parties recognize and acknowledge
       that the 65/35 allocation of Spine
       Equipment and Space costs is
       desirable for the first 5 years after
       DBO, but may not be desirable over a
       longer term.  Accordingly, at least 8
       months prior to the end of the first
       five years after DBO, any airline or
       group of airlines representing at
       least 40% of combined Concourses A
       and B origin and destination traffic
       may, with respect to the second
       five-year period and thereafter,
       cause CCD to charge the Spine
       Equipment and Space to airlines
       operating on Concourses A and B based
       on such airlines' respective shares
       of the combined A and B origination
       and destination traffic.  If this
       right, as set forth herein, is
       exercised, CCD shall change the
       allocation as set forth in
       subparagraph a.iv above to reflect
       the provisions of this paragraph,
       thus creating a common A/B system for
       purposes of allocating Spine
       Equipment and Space costs.  If no
       such right is exercised, then the
       Spine Equipment and Space costs shall
       continue thereafter to be allocated
       as set forth in subparagraph a.iv of
       this paragraph 5.

  vi.  If, at any time after DBO, a baggage
       system, automated or otherwise, other
       than the BBS, is constructed for
       Concourse C, the costs of such system
       shall not be charged, in whole or
       part or in any way to airlines
       operating from Concourses A or B and
       such costs shall be allocated to a
       separate cost center, to be charged
       exclusively to Concourse C airlines
       based on their respective origination
       and destination traffic and, in
       addition, an equitable share of any
       common equipment and space shall be
       allocated to such airlines to the
       extent such common equipment and
       space is utilized by a Concourse C
       system.

 vii.  The Concourse A airlines' AABS rates
       and charges for the A Sortation
       Equipment, associated space, and for
       the 35% of the Spine Equipment and
       Space as set forth in subparagraphs
       a.i and a.iv of this paragraph 5,
       shall begin to be charged to such
       airlines at the earlier of
       (1) certification by CCD that the
       AABS meets the performance standards
       established in Contract F-300B as
       modified by amendments and change
       orders thereto through Change Order
       14 or (2) November 15, 1995.  Between
       DBO and the assessment of rates and
       charges for the AABS, as provided for
       herein, said rates and charges shall,
       subject to all prior requirements of
       CCD's bond ordinances applicable to
       the airport or airport system, be
       paid from net DIA airport revenues.

viii.  Any expenditures required to make the
       AABS operational shall be paid by CCD
       as part of its obligations under
       Contract F-300B and the amendments
       and change orders thereto.  Any
       additional expenditures, unless paid
       for by CCD's share of net revenues,
       for the AABS cannot be made without
       the approval of signatory airlines
       and their sublessees serving
       Concourse A carrying at least 51% of
       the origination and destination
       traffic on such concourse.  In no
       event shall any expenditures for the
       AABS, over and above that which is
       currently approved in Contract F-
       300B, including the amendments and
       change orders thereto through Change
       Order 14, be charged directly or
       indirectly or in any way to United,
       except to the extent United is
       operating from Concourse A.

  ix.  The Concourse A airlines' obligation
       to pay for the AABS as set forth in
       subparagraph a.vii of this
       paragraph 5, shall not constitute an
       obligation of the Concourse A
       airlines to use the AABS unless the
       AABS meets the performance and
       reliability criteria established in
       F300-B, as amended, and change orders
       thereto through the date hereof and
       (1) the total actual annual
       origination and destination traffic
       on Concourse A exceeds 4.5 million
       passengers, or (2) the airlines
       carrying at least 51% of the
       origination and destination traffic
       on Concourse A (excluding United if
       United operates from Concourse A)
       elect to request the use of such
       system.

b.  Operations and Maintenance Costs. 
Continental hereby agrees for itself and its
sublessees and CCD agrees that any other
airline operating from Concourse A, either
as a signatory or nonsignatory airline,
shall pay a pro rata share of the costs of
an operations and maintenance agreement for
the AABS, UABS, and the BBS on the following
terms and conditions:  

   i.  For so long as the airlines operating
       on Concourse A are not required to
       use, or do not elect to use, the
       AABS, such airlines shall not,
       pursuant to this Agreement, be
       responsible for, and shall not be
       obligated to pay for, any portion of
       the costs of the "O&M Agreement," as
       defined in subparagraph b.ii below. 
       If the Concourse A airlines commence
       the actual use of the AABS pursuant
       to subparagraph a.ix above, then and
       only then the following subparagraphs
       shall apply.

  ii.  The operations and maintenance
       agreement shall be the agreement
       dated January 25, 1995 between United
       and BAE Automated Systems, Inc.,
       entitled Denver International Airport
       Agreement for Operations, Maintenance
       and Management Services, or any
       substantially similar successor
       agreement if the BAE contract is
       terminated pursuant to its provisions
       ("O&M Agreement"), which O&M
       Agreement shall be expanded to
       include the AABS and that part of the
       BBS serving Concourse A.

 iii.  The "O&M Agreement" shall not be
       applicable to the C Concourse portion
       of the BBS, and the Concourse C
       carriers shall be separately
       responsible for the O&M costs for
       that part of the BBS which serves
       Concourse C.  If the AABS is not in
       use by airlines on Concourse A, the
       Concourse A airlines shall be
       separately responsible for the O&M
       costs for that part of the BBS
       serving Concourse A.  

  iv.  The parties acknowledge that the O&M
       Agreement is a five-year agreement. 
       The Concourse A and B airlines agree
       to pay for the cost of the O&M
       Agreement, except those costs related
       to the BBS, as follows:  


<TABLE>
<CAPTION>
                                A Carriers'   B Carriers'
      O&M Contract Segment          Share         Share  
<S>                             <C>            <C>

    Concourse B                      0%         100%
</TABLE>


  v.   The O&M Agreement costs for any
       portion of the BBS shall be allocated
       pursuant to the formula for
       allocation of the equipment costs for
       the BBS.

 vi.   In the event that an automated system
       is built, after DBO, for Concourse C
       and if Concourse C airlines also join
       in some portion of the O&M Agreement,
       then the allocable shares of each
       segment of the O&M Agreement shall be
       adjusted on an equitable basis to
       reflect the addition of such
       airlines.

vii.   The annual costs of the O&M Agreement
       shall be established by United
       pursuant to the provisions of the O&M
       Agreement, provided however that the
       annual budget for the segment of the
       contract solely attributable to
       Concourse A shall be determined by
       the Concourse A airlines in the
       manner provided in the O&M Agreement,
       with a vote required to bind the
       Concourse A airlines of a majority of
       the signatory airlines and their
       sublessees serving Concourse A,
       cumulatively carrying at least 51% of
       such airlines' Concourse A
       origination and destination
       passengers for the immediately
       preceding calendar year (except 1994
       calendar year Stapleton International
       Airport passenger figures for such
       Concourse A airlines shall be used
       from DBO of DIA through the end of
       1995).

viii.  The airlines serving Concourse A
       shall have the right to dispute the
       allocation of budgeted costs among or
       between contract segments of the O&M
       Agreement, with a vote required to
       bind the Concourse A airlines of a
       majority of the signatory airlines
       and their sublessees serving
       Concourse A, cumulatively carrying at
       least 51% of such airlines'
       Concourse A origination and
       destination passengers for the
       immediately preceding calendar year
       (except 1994 calendar year Stapleton
       International Airport passenger
       figures for such Concourse A airlines
       shall be used from DBO of DIA through
       the end of 1995).  


       c.  Miscellaneous Baggage System Provisions.

  i.   The cost allocations provided for in
       this paragraph 5 shall not result in
       joint or joint and several liability
       for any airline.  

 ii.   CCD agrees that, except for
       international arrivals, no airlines
       will be allowed to locate on
       Concourse A or to use Concourse A on
       a charter basis or other limited
       basis unless such airlines agree to
       pay a fair and equitable share of the
       AABS costs, Spine Equipment and
       Space, and, if applicable pursuant to
       subparagraph b above, their allocable
       share of the O&M Agreement,
       substantially on the basis set forth
       above or on other fair and equitable
       terms and conditions, with
       appropriate adjustments for signatory
       or nonsignatory status.  CCD will
       credit the AABS cost center to the
       extent of such collected rates and
       charges from charter or other limited
       basis operations.

6.     Audit Rights:  Notwithstanding paragraph 2 above,
the Carriers will retain the right to audit any and all of
the amounts and the allocation of costs and cost centers
pursuant to the agreed upon rates and charges methodology,
and to dispute (i) such allocations to the extent
inconsistent with such methodology, and (ii) the amounts
of any charges to them.  The Carriers also retain the
right to request annual audits.

CCD will follow such procedures and keep and maintain such
books, records and accounts as are necessary or required
under the provisions of the pertinent agreement or CCD's
bond ordinances applicable to the airport or airport
system.  Such books, records and accounts will contain all
items affecting the computation of airline rentals, rates,
fees and charges, recorded in accordance with reasonable
accounting principles or procedures.  All Carriers will
have the right, at any reasonable time and at their own
expense, until the expiration of three (3) years after the
termination of their respective use and lease agreements,
to examine and make copies of CCD's books, records and
accounts pertinent to such agreements.

Each Carrier agrees that the Auditor of CCD or any of the
Auditor's duly authorized representatives, until the
expiration of three (3) years after the termination of
each respective Carrier's Lease, shall have the right, at
any reasonable time and at its expense, to have access to
and the right to examine any books, documents, papers and
records of the Carrier pertinent to such agreement. 
Nothing herein shall be construed to allow a change to the
baggage system cost allocation methodology in subparagraph
5.a.iv above.  

7.     Capitalization of Delay Costs:  Subject to CCD's
obligations to the owners of its airport revenue bonds,
and consistent with CCD's obligations to United for
repayment of Delay Costs for the period March 10, 1994
through May 15, 1994, pursuant to Section 3.03 of the
agreement between CCD and United dated September 1, 1994,
as amended on October 14, 1994, CCD will use its best
efforts to capitalize delay costs incurred between
March 10, 1994 and May 15, 1994 and, if successful, will
then return to the airlines all amounts paid to date to
defray such costs.  Subject to CCD's obligations to the
owners of its airport revenue bonds, CCD will include such
capitalized delay costs in the rate base for all carriers,
based on a capitalization period of not less than the term
of any bonds issued to finance such costs or 20 years,
whichever is greater.  Notwithstanding the foregoing,
should CCD not return to United said Delay Costs amounts,
nothing herein shall waive United's rights under Section
3.03 of the aforesaid agreement, as amended.  

8.     Sublease Rights:  As a special incentive for
Continental agreeing to commit to take more gates, as of
DBO, than the number of gates it requires as of DBO, and
in compromise of the disputes between the parties, CCD
will amend its policy on subleasing rights, which amended
policy will remain in effect no less than five years from
DBO, to conform to the following:

       a.  CCD will approve a request by
       Continental to sublease any of its gates to
       any other airline so long as (i) all other
       available gates at DIA are leased to an
       airline (other than the City's two
       international Concourse A gates), or
       (ii) Continental and the subleasing airline
       are parties to a legitimate code-sharing
       agreement;

       b.  In addition to the rights in "a" above,
       CCD will approve a subleasing request by
       Continental as to the seven gates and
       associated space that are contemplated to be
       subleased to Frontier and America West, if
       any of such subleased gates and associated
       space thereafter becomes vacant, so long as
       the "replacement" subleasing airline is
       either (i) a new entrant to DIA (not serving
       DIA prior to such replacement sublease) or
       (ii) an airline already serving DIA on
       Concourse A who wishes to take one or more
       additional gates on Concourse A, and no
       other gates on such Concourse are available
       to be leased by CCD to such airline at such
       time.  

       c.  CCD will approve a request by
       Continental to sublease or enter into a use
       agreement with respect to its club space or
       mail sort facility on reasonable terms and
       conditions related to the facilities.

       d.  No sublease for any space will release
       an airline from its obligations under its
       Lease, and such airline will remain
       primarily liable unless CCD elects to
       require an assignment of such airline's
       Lease.

9.     Releases:  CCD and Continental, and their
subsidiaries, affiliates, representatives, agents,
officers, directors, employees, successors and assigns,
hereby mutually release and discharge each other from and
against any and all claims, demands, causes of action,
damages, losses or liabilities arising from or relating
to: 

       a.  Any acts or omissions prior to the date
       of execution of this Agreement, arising from
       or relating to the Airport Use and
       Facilities Lease Agreement, the Amendatory
       Agreement, the Agreement on a New Airport,
       as amended, or the March 16, 1994 Agreement
       between CCD and Continental, including but
       not limited to any failure by Continental to
       occupy, or pay rates and charges on, any
       gates or space in the terminal complex or
       Concourse A at DIA prior to the date of
       execution of this Agreement; and

       b.  any claim by Continental that CCD was
       required to open DIA prior to February 28,
       1995; and

       c.  any claim by Continental that CCD was
       required to provide an "Integrated Automated
       Baggage Handling System;" and

       d.  any claim by Continental that CCD failed
       to coordinate or consult with Continental in
       the planning, design, development and
       construction of DIA, that CCD failed to
       expedite completion, minimize costs and stay
       within its budget, and that CCD failed to
       perform as a reasonably prudent airport
       operator in the planning, design,
       development, and construction of DIA; and

       e.  any claim by CCD against Continental for
       rates and charges at DIA in excess of those
       required by or pursuant to this Agreement,
       or by agreements not modified, amended or
       superseded by this Agreement, it being
       expressly agreed that CCD shall withdraw
       invoices for rates and charges at DIA
       previously submitted to Continental for the
       months of March and April 1995, and CCD
       shall reissue to Continental invoices for
       March and April 1995 as if this Agreement
       had then been in full force and effect as of
       DBO

This provision shall not be construed to release any
claims arising from any breach of this Agreement or any
claims not specifically released herein.  The foregoing
releases shall not affect or release in any way the
parties' rights under paragraph 6 of this Agreement, the
exercise of such rights, or the consequences of the
exercise of such rights.  CCD shall, upon payment of
amounts due from Continental pursuant to subparagraph 9.e
of this Agreement and other amounts due, owing and
outstanding as of May 1, 1995 regarding three special
facility leases for facilities at Stapleton and four
support facilities at DIA, cause to be dismissed, without
prejudice except to the extent of the claims released, the
claims filed against Continental in the matter City and
County of Denver, Colorado v. Continental Airlines, Inc.,
Civ. 95-S-419 (D. Colo. filed February 22, 1995).

10.    Binding Terms:  This Agreement is binding on the
parties hereto and Continental shall be entitled to rely
hereon in order to occupy and to give up for occupancy
premises in the locations and numbers specified in
paragraph 2 above, together with associated operations
space.

11.    Bond Ordinance:  This agreement and any agreement
contemplated hereby will be in all respects subject and
subordinate to any and all City bond ordinances applicable
to the airport and airport system and to any other bond
ordinances which hereafter may amend, supplement or
replace such ordinances; except to the extent that any
ordinances that amend, supplement, or replace such
ordinances impair the rights of the Carriers under this
Agreement.  The parties acknowledge and agree that all
property subject to any agreement which was financed by
the net proceeds of tax-exempt bonds is owned by CCD, and
the Carriers which are a party thereto agree not to take
any action that would impair, or omit to take any action
required to confirm, the treatment of such property as
owned by CCD for purposes of Section 142(b) of the
Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.  In particular,
the Carriers agree to make an irrevocable election
(binding on themselves and all successors in interest) not
to claim depreciation or an investment credit with respect
to any property subject to any agreement which was
financed by the net proceeds of tax-exempt bonds and will
execute such forms and take such other action as CCD may
reasonably request in order to implement such election.

12.    Revenue Credit Split:  The annual "revenue credit"
for DIA, if any, to be divided between the Capital
Improvement Account and the Airline Revenue Credit
Account, shall be divided as follows:

<TABLE>
<CAPTION>
                              Capital        Airline
                            Improvement      Revenue
       Years from DBO      Account Share  Credit Share    
<S>                        <C>            <C>
             0-5              20%              80%
             6-11             25%              75%
             12-              50%              50%
</TABLE>


13.    CCD Use of Available Office Space:  CCD agrees that
for so long as the currently available office or other
unleased space at DIA is available for office space at
DIA, it will not cause to be built any additional office
space over and above existing space, at DIA for the
purpose of use by CCD employees or agents at DIA.

14.    Sixth Runway:  CCD will proceed with the completion
of Runway 16R - 34L and related taxiways in two phases. 
In the first phase, CCD will complete the rough grading in
FY95-96 utilizing the existing AIP #09 Grant for $10
million and the $6 million required as matching funds,
which funds shall come from the proceeds of 30-year bond
sales or the Capital Fund.  In the second phase, CCD will
complete the remainder of the final grading, paving,
lighting and related work to provide a complete
operational unit, only if:  (i) its operational
effectiveness, utilizing computer simulation SIMMOD
(current version), is proven to result in annual
operational cost savings that equal or exceed the annual
debt service and operating and maintenance expenses of
this phase of the sixth runway project; or (ii) signatory
airlines that account for at least 51% of total landed
aircraft weight during the previous fiscal year approves;
or (iii) the FAA funds 75% of the entire cost of the
remainder of the sixth runway project.

15.    Execution by Counterparts:  This agreement may be
signed in two or more counterparts, each of which shall be
deemed an original.

16.    Conflicts With and Amendments of Existing Leases
and Other Agreements:  In the event of any inconsistency
between the Carriers' Leases, or any other agreements
between Carriers and CCD and the terms hereof, this
Agreement shall control, supersede, and amend any such
inconsistent or contrary provisions, but all provisions in
such leases or agreements not inconsistent with the terms
and provisions hereof shall remain in full force and
effect.

17.    Condition; Final Approval:  This Agreement is
conditioned on CCD obtaining the written consent of a
numerical majority of the signatory airlines and a
majority of the signatory airlines in terms of rentals,
rates, fees and charges paid in the preceding fiscal year,
pursuant to the General Provisions Section set forth in
the Rate-Making Procedures and Reestablishment Part of the
Airport Use and Facilities Lease Agreements of such
signatory airlines.  In addition, this agreement is
expressly subject to, and shall not be or become effective
or binding on CCD until executed by CCD and an executed
copy has been delivered to at least one of the Carriers.

18.    Effective Date:  For purposes of rates and charges
assessed to airlines at DIA, this Agreement shall be
deemed to be effective as of May 1, 1995; provided,
however, that as part of the compromise of the litigation
pending between Continental and CCD, Continental's rates
and charges for March and April, 1995, shall be calculated
as if this Agreement were effective as of DBO.

19.    DBO:  "DBO" as used herein is February 28, 1995.

                       DENVER INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
                      AIRLINE RATE-MAKING METHODOLOGY

General Rate-Making Concepts

The City will use a "compensatory" methodology to establish Terminal
Complex rental rates.  The Airlines will pay the fully allocated cost of
the space that they lease in the Landside Terminal building and airside
concourses.

Landing fees will be established according to a "cost center residual cost"
methodology, under which the airlines will pay the costs of the Airfield,
after first deducting airfield revenues from other sources (primarily
general aviation landing fees and fuel flowage fees).

Rate-Making Procedures at the Airport

At the Airport, the City intends to use cost accounting concepts and rate-
making procedures as described in the following sections.

            Cost Center.  Direct (revenue-producing) cost centers to be
established for the New Airport are to include the following:

            Terminal Complex -- All levels of space, including the
            pedestrian bridge to Concourse A, the clerestory in Concourse
            B, public escalators, elevators and moving walkways in the
            Landside Terminal and airside Concourses A, B, and C.

            sortation systems which shall include related equipment and
            space within Concourses A and B (and additional concourses as
            such sortation systems are operational), and approved
            modifications to the automated baggage systems.  Sub-cost
            centers will be established for the Landside Terminal, the

            AGTS and Tunnel cost center) in the Landside Terminal and in
            the Tunnel from the Landside Terminal to the Concourses,
            separately serving Concourse A (the "AABS") and separately
            serving Concourse B (the"UABS"), including the costs of the
            maintenance space, control room equipment and related control
            room space, (excluding the costs of baggage sortation system
            equipment and space in the concourses and the costs of approved

     Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting -- The rapid response stations,
     structural fire station(s) and ARFF operating expenses.

Certain Cost Center Allocations

The net requirement of the Terminal Complex will be recovered through
rental rates.  Net Terminal Complex requirements will be divided by total
rentable space in the Terminal Complex to determine the average rental rate
per square foot of rentable space.  Airlines will be charged this average
rate for space that they lease.  Undeveloped space in the Terminal Complex
shall not be considered rentable space in computing the average rental
rate. Space costs associated with the FIS area, international facilities,
and AGTS and tunnel areas, baggage claim and baggage systems shall be
assigned at the average Terminal Complex rental rate to the appropriate
costs centers.

The net costs of the Ramp Area including pushback zones will be recovered
through separate ramp fees assessed on a per-lineal-foot basis measured two
hundred and fifty (250) feet from the exterior walls of each concourse. 
Commuter aircraft ramp fees will be calculated based on 50% of the sum of
the per-lineal-foot measurement of the commuter facility ramp area.

The net costs of the Airfield Area will be recovered through landing fees
assessed on the basis of the total landed weight of all aircraft using the
Airport.  

International fees on arriving international flights will be assessed on a
per deplaning international passenger basis to recover costs allocable to
the International Facilities cost center.  
Fueling system charges will be distributed 10% equally and 90% on a
gallonage basis among airlines to recover all of the costs associated with
the fueling system.

Charges for the AGTS, the AGTS tunnels, and the baggage and tug tunnels
between the landside terminal and the airside concourses will be assessed
among airlines on the basis of their respective originating and destination
passengers at the Airport for the preceding three-month period.

Baggage Claim space will be costed at the average rental rate in the
Terminal Complex.  This amount will be added to the Baggage Claim cost
center costs.  Charges for the Baggage Claim cost center will be allocated
among airlines on the basis of their respective deplaned destination
passengers for the preceding three-month period.

Landside Terminal space allocated to the Backup Baggage System will be
costed at the average rental rate of the Terminal Complex.  This space
shall be allocated based on Airline rented square footage in the Landside
Terminal and charged to the Airline Tenants.  Space in the Public Parking
Area will be costed at the average cost per square foot of the Parking
Structure, and, when applicable, will be added to the Backup Baggage System
cost center.  Charges for the Backup Baggage System cost center, including
equipment, structural/construction costs and related space as described
above, will be allocated to a sub-cost center for each of the five modules
presently developed in the Terminal and Parking Structure (additional
modules will be added when developed).  The costs of each module shall be
charged to the airline(s) leasing or using those facilities.  In the event
the Backup Baggage System equipment and/or space is jointly used by two or
more airlines, such costs will be allocated among such airlines on the
basis of their proportional number of carrousels in the module exclusively
used by each airline to the total number of carrousels in their module. 
Furthermore, if a carousel is jointly used by two or more airlines, the
costs allocated to such carousel will be further allocated to each carrier
using the carousel based on their proportional share of originating
passengers.  

The cost of the Parking Structure will be allocated to each module based on
the square footage of that module used for the Backup Baggage System. 
However, the airlines will not be charged for such costs until the average
number of cars in the Parking Structure exceeds 12,000 for 22 consecutive
days.

Joint Use Facilities shall be costed at the average Terminal Complex rate. 
The cost of the Joint Use Facilities in each concourse shall be separately
allocated based on Airline rentable square footage within the respective
concourse and charged to the respective tenants/users of the facilities in
each concourse based on their proportional share of rented square footage
to the total rentable square footage.  

For purposes of allocating costs to airlines based on rentable square
footage, airline rentable square footage shall include the 215,000 square
feet of unleased space that has been redefined for certain purposes as
undeveloped space.

The space associated with the Spine Equipment and Space in the Terminal
Complex will be costed at the average rental rate of the Terminal Complex. 
This amount will be added to the equipment costs of the Spine Equipment and
Space and allocated 65% to the UABS serving Concourse B and 35% to the AABS
serving Concourse A and assessed among the airlines on each respective
concourse on the basis of their respective originating and destination
passengers for the preceding three-month period.  The parties recognize and
acknowledge that the 65/35 allocation of Spine Equipment and Space is
desirable for the initial 5-year term, but may not be desirable over a
longer term.  Accordingly, at least 8 months prior to the end of the first
five years after DBO, any airline or group of airlines representing at
least 40% of combined Concourses A and B originating and destination
traffic may, with respect to the second five-year period and thereafter,
cause the City to charge the Spine Equipment and Space to airlines
operating on Concourse A and B based on such airlines' respective shares of
the combined A and B originating and destination traffic.

The Concourse A airlines' rates and charges for the baggage sortation
equipment and space on Concourse A and for the 35% of the Spine Equipment
and Space shall begin to be charged to such airlines at the earlier of (1)
certification by the City that the AABS meets the performance standards
established in Contract F-300B as modified by amendments and change orders
thereto through Change Order 14 or (2) November 15, 1995.  Between DBO and
the assessment of rates and charges for the baggage sortation equipment and
space and the Concourse A proportional share of the Spine Equipment and
Space, as provided for herein, said rates and charges shall, subject to all
prior requirements of the City's Bond Ordinances applicable to the Airport
or Airport System, be paid from net DIA airport revenues.

Continental, for itself, its successors, and assigns, agrees that in the
event it no longer operates at DIA but remains an operating airline during
the 5 years following DBO, it, or its successors or assigns, shall be
responsible to pay, during such initial five-year term, a share of the 35%
of the Spine Equipment and Space based on its actual 1995 DIA originating
and destination passenger traffic, but not less than 800,000 originating
and destination passengers.  In the event that Continental ceases operation
without a successor or assign, then the 35% share of the Spine Equipment
and Space shall be paid as follows:  For each six-month period after the
commencement of the assessment of charges for the AABS, the Concourse A
airlines shall collectively pay 100% of their 35% share of the Spine
Equipment and Space, unless the total originating and destination traffic
on Concourse A during such period is below 1.0 million passengers.  In that
event, the Concourse A airlines shall be charged for the AABS share of the
Spine Equipment and Space, using the 1.0 million passenger level as the
"denominator" of originating and destination traffic on Concourse A for
such six-month period and using the airlines' actual originating and
destination traffic as the numerator, with the resulting quotient
multiplied by the 35% charge for the Spine Equipment and Space for that
six-month period.  The balance of the 35% share of the Spine Equipment and
Space not charged to any airline under this methodology shall, subject to
all prior requirements of the City's Bond Ordinances applicable to the
Airport or the Airport System, be paid by net revenues of DIA.  If for any
reason DIA net revenues are insufficient or otherwise cannot be used to pay
such costs, then each Concourse A signatory airline shall have the right to
move to Concourse C to the extent available space exists, and be subject to
rates and charges as if such airline were on Concourse C whether or not
such airline is actually able to obtain space on such Concourse.

The City shall credit the AABS cost center to the extent of collected
rates, fees and charges assessed charter and other limited basis operations
on Concourse A.

Airline Tenant Finish and Equipment costs, excluding the costs of the
baggage sortation equipment and approved modifications to the automated DCV
baggage system to provide for the automated system on Concourses A and B,
shall be allocated to the applicable sub-costs centers and then divided by
total airline rentable space in that cost center to determine the average
tenant finish rate per square foot.  The cost of the baggage sortation
space shall be included in the costs of the Tenant Finish and Equipment and
allocated based on airline rentable space.

The costs of the Concourse A baggage sortation system equipment and
approved modifications shall be allocated exclusively to the airlines
operating on Concourse A on the basis of their respective passenger
enplanements.  The costs of the Concourse B baggage sortation system
equipment and approved modifications shall be allocated exclusively to the
airlines operating on Concourse B on the basis of their respective
passenger enplanements.  The costs of the Concourse C baggage sortation
system equipment as of DBO shall be allocated to the Concourse B sortation
system equipment until such equipment is otherwise utilized or leased by
other airlines.

In the event an automated baggage system is constructed for Concourse C or
for any additional airside concourse, the costs related to such baggage
system(s), equipment and space shall be allocated to Concourse C, or the
new concourse as applicable, and charged exclusively to the airlines
operating on such concourse.

Costs associated with undeveloped acreage will be allocated to the Airfield
Area until the land is developed.  Costs and revenues associated with
developed acreage will be allocated to the applicable cost center.

Not more than forty percent (40%) of the costs (debt service and operating
and maintenance expenses) associated with the Access and Terminal Roadways
shall be allocated to the Terminal Complex.

Costs associated with the Service Roadways shall be allocated back to the
direct cost centers based primarily on which cost centers benefit from such
Service Roadways.

Not more than eighty percent (80%) of the costs associated with Aircraft
Rescue and Fire Fighting shall be allocated to the Airfield Area cost
center.

Costs associated with the Airport Administration cost center will be
allocated based on a 50/50 revenue/direct expense formula: fifty percent
(50%) on the percentage distribution of operating revenue by cost center
and the remaining fifty percent (50%) allocated on the percentage
distribution of direct Operation and Maintenance Expenses by cost center.

Undeveloped space shall include: (i) space in which no buildout has
occurred, (ii) the space in the basement of Concourse C  until such space
is leased or utilized, (iii) no more than 215,000 square feet of unleased
operational and office space (including the prorata costs of Tenant Finish
and Equipment and Joint Use Facilities) until such space is exclusively
leased and (iv) the space in level 3 of the Landside Terminal interior to
the tug circulation rights-of-way not otherwise leased or used.

Airport Costs

Airport "costs" (also referred to as "requirements") include without
limitation:

     (1)  Operation and Maintenance Expenses.

     (2)  Debt service on Bonds issued for the Airport and any other
          amounts required under the General Bond Ordinance except debt
          service on PFC-enhanced bonds for which PFC revenues are
          available.

     (3)  Debt service on Bonds used for Airport land acquisition.

     (4)  Amortization of 50% of the City's New Airport expenditures
          incurred prior to January 1, 1990, from Capital Fund and
          Operating Fund moneys used for (a) pre-1990 planning and
          administrative costs, (b)Airport land acquisition, (c) New
          Airport Project costs, and (d) debt service on Bonds used for
          Airport land acquisition.

     (5)  Amortization of all investments made for the New Airport Project
          costs from other than Bonds or grants after January 1, 1990 and
          prior to DBO.

     (6)  Amortization of the City's investment in the Airport Coverage
          Account to be accumulated during the pre-DBO period.  

     (7)  For the purposes of items (4), (5), and (6) above, amortization
          charges are to be calculated over 15 years at the weighted
          average effective interest cost on all Airport fixed-rate Bonds
          prior to January 1, 1997.  Except and only to the extent, if any,
          that the rights of the owners of its airport revenue bonds
          (including, without limitation, the rights arising from the rate
          maintenance covenant) are not thereby materially impaired, the
          City will cause, by January 1, 1997 (or as soon thereafter as
          possible consistent with the City's aforesaid obligations to
          owners of its airport revenue bonds), amortization of the net
          unamortized balance of City's investments in items (4), (5) and
          (6) above on a straight-line basis for the balance of the period
          through March 1, 2025.

     (8)  Amortization of reimbursements made to United Airlines related to
          costs for modifications to the United Airlines automated DCV
          baggage system, not to exceed $45 million, from other than bonds
          shall be calculated on a straight line basis over 30 years,
          effective as of the date of any such reimbursement, at the
          weighted average effective interest rate of all Airport fixed-
          rate bonds prior to January 1, 1997.

     (9)  Amortization of the City's investments from the Capital Fund,
          subsequent to DBO, shall be amortized at the average rate of the
          Airport fixed-rate bonds over 15 years and charged to the
          Airlines.

PFC Revenues

PFC Revenues will not be treated as airport revenues for the purpose of
establishing airline rates, fees and charges.  For rate-making purposes,
PFC revenues shall be allocated to the extent available, to at least fifty
percent (50%) of the capital costs and/or debt service associated with the
following eligible projects in the following order of priority:  (1)
facilities for the Federal Inspection Services, (2) the portion of Airport
Boulevard from an interchange with the Proposed E-470 to the terminal and
terminal area roads, (3) the Automated Guideway Transit System ("AGTS"),
including vehicles and equipment and (4) the AGTS tunnels.  That portion of
the capital costs or debt service paid for by PFC revenues will not be
included in the calculation of the airline rate base.



Airport "Credits"

Debt service will be charged to the airline rate base at the Airport in
lieu of amortization of such Airport costs as are bond-financed.  Interest
income on the Bond Reserve Fund (provided that the minimum Bond Reserve
Requirement has been funded) and on the Interest and Principal Accounts of
the Bond Fund that are Gross Revenues shall be credited to the cost centers
of the Airport in the same proportion as the debt service allocation.

The City shall establish accounts within the Capital Fund as illustrated in
Figure 2.  Net Revenues of the Airport System, as defined in the General
Bond Ordinance, flowing to the Capital Fund each year are to be used to
replenish reserve funds or accounts as required in the General Bond
Ordinance and the Coverage Account and to fund the Equipment and Capital
Outlay Account for equipment and capital outlays included in the operating
budget.  Remaining Net Revenues are to be allocated as follows:  (a) 80%
for the first five years following DBO, 75% for the next six years, and 50%
thereafter, up to a maximum of $40 million to flow into the Airline Revenue
Credit Account to be applied as a credit against Signatory Airline rates
and charges in the following fiscal year and (b) the balance to flow into
the Capital Improvement Account.

Prior to DBO, City shall create an Airport Coverage Account and fund that
account up to an amount equal to twenty-five percent (25%) of Debt Service
Requirements on Bonds issued to finance the Airport (other than Special
Facilities Bonds and other Bonds to finance support facilities such as
cargo, maintenance and food preparation facilities).  The Airport Coverage
Account shall be considered as Other Available Funds (as defined in the
General Bond Ordinance) for the purpose of meeting the Rate Maintenance
Covenant.  Airline rentals, rates, fees and charges will not be used for
such funding unless the intended sources are insufficient to fully fund the
Airport Coverage Account prior to DBO.

Miscellaneous

The City intends to redeem, defease or otherwise provide for the
outstanding Series 1984 and 1985 Bonds that relate to Stapleton.  The "land
acquisition" portion of the 1985 Bonds,  portions of the 1984 Bonds and the
interim improvements portion of the 1985 Bonds used for the New Airport
Project will be refinanced if it is determined to result in financial
savings to the City.

All defined terms used herein shall be consistent with the defined terms in
the General Bond Ordinance.

Gross Revenues of the Airport System shall include, after January 1, 1994,
the proceeds of the City's 1989 $0.02 per-gallon fuel tax increase.

Any payments received within six (6) months after DBO from tenants of
Stapleton for activities prior to DBO of the Airport shall be treated as if
received prior to DBO for purposes of allocation of the Capital Fund.
