ITEM 6.  CONTRACTS, ARRANGEMENTS, UNDERSTANDINGS OR RELATIONSHIPS WITH
         RESPECT TO SECURITIES OF THE ISSUER.

         Item 6 is hereby partially amended by adding at the end thereof, the
following:

         Except as disclosed in this Schedule 13D (including the original
Schedule 13D filing, as amended), the Reporting Persons know of no contracts,
arrangements, understandings or relationships between or among themselves, or
between the Reporting Persons and any other person, with respect to any
securities of the Issuer.

         On April 19, 1996, Air Partners entered into certain agreements with
the Issuer and Air Canada, a Canadian corporation ("Air Canada"), with respect
to securities of the Issuer, which are described below.  The descriptions set
forth in this Item 6 of the Amendment to Subscription and Stockholders'
Agreement, dated as of April 19, 1996, among the Issuer, Air Partners and Air
Canada (the "Stockholders' Agreement Amendment"), and the Amended and Restated
Registration Rights Agreement, dated as of April 19, 1996, among the Issuer,
Air Partners and Air Canada (the "Restated Registration Rights Agreement") do
not purport to be complete and are qualified in their entirety by reference to
such agreements, each of which is being filed as an exhibit to this Schedule
13D.

         STOCKHOLDERS AGREEMENT AMENDMENT

         The Stockholders' Agreement Amendment amends certain provisions of
the Subscription and Stockholders' Agreement, dated as of April 27, 1993,
among Air Partners, Air Canada and the Issuer (the "Original Stockholders'
Agreement"), a copy of which was filed as Exhibit 4.1 with the Original
Schedule 13D, and sets forth new agreements among the parties thereto. 
Pursuant to the Stockholders' Agreement Amendment, the Issuer agreed to
register under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Registration"), up
to 2,200,000 shares of Class B Common Stock beneficially owned by Air Canada
and up to an aggregate of 2,742,733 shares of Class B Common Stock
beneficially owned by the partners in Air Partners and to engage Merrill
Lynch & Co. as lead underwriter to conduct an underwritten offering of such
shares on a firm commitment basis (the "Offering").  On April 22, 1996 the
Issuer made an initial filing of a Registration Statement on Form S-3 relating
to the Offering.

         It is currently anticipated that the number of shares owned
beneficially by Reporting Persons to be included for sale in the Registration
and Offering will be as follows:

         REPORTING PERSON                NUMBER OF SHARES REGISTERED FOR SALE

         Bonderman                                 114,586

         Bonderman Family                           33,219

         Air Inc.                                  305,456

         Air II                                      2,403

         Bondo Air (1)                             412,499
_____________
         (1)  As reported on his cover page to this Schedule 13D, because of
his indirect ownership of warrants to purchase a 98.5% interest in Bondo Air,
and on the basis of certain provisions of the limited partnership agreement of
Bondo Air, Brenner may be deemed to beneficially own 98.5% of such shares. 
Pursuant to Rule 13d-4 under the Act, Brenner disclaims beneficial ownership
of such shares.


         Air Partners and Air Canada have also agreed, among other things, to
amend the Original Stockholders' Agreement to (i) delete the purchase options,
rights of first refusal and other restrictions on the transfer of the Issuer's
securities, (ii) eliminate the voting arrangement between Air Partners and Air
Canada relating to the election of persons designated by each such party as
directors of the Issuer and (iii) allocate the six demand registrations
granted by the Issuer under the Restated Registration Rights Agreement, four
to Air Partners and two to Air Canada.  In addition, Air Canada further agreed
that it will (a) convert, on a share for share basis, its 1,661,056 shares of
Class A Common Stock (which entitles the holder thereof to 10 votes per share)
into an equivalent number of shares of Class B Common Stock (which entitles
the holder thereof to 1 vote per share) and irrevocably waive its right to
exchange 1,078,944 shares of Class B Common Stock for an equivalent number of
shares of Class A Common Stock, (b) grant an irrevocable proxy (the "Air
Canada Proxy") to Air Partners to enable Air Partners to vote Air Canada's
shares of the Issuer's common stock at the upcoming annual meeting with
respect to the election of directors, approval of certain amendments to the
Issuer's Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, and approval of
amendments to certain employee benefit-related contracts and other matters or,
if Air partners is in any way precluded from exercising such proxy, Air Canada
has agreed to vote its shares in favor of the Issuer's proposals at the annual
stockholders' meeting of the Issuer, (c) irrevocably waive its right to
exchange shares of Class B Common Stock for Class A Common Stock and (d) to
cause each of its designees to the Board of Directors of the Issuer to resign
at any time following the closing of the Offering upon the request of the
Issuer.  The aforementioned agreements will become effective only upon the
closing of the Offering.

         Air Partners intends to vote its shares of the Issuer's common stock
and the shares covered by the Air Canada Proxy at the annual stockholders'
meeting of the Issuer in favor of the proposed amendments to the Issuer's
Certificate of Incorporation, which provide for, among other things, a change
in the number of directors from 18 to such number as may be determined from
time to time by the Board in accordance with the By-Laws (currently
anticipated to be 12), the ability of holders of the Issuer's Class D common
stock to elect one-third of the number of directors determined by the Board
(rounded to the nearest whole number), the deletion of Class C common stock
and the deletion of Air Canada's preemptive rights.

         Finally, Air Partners agreed that prior to December 16, 1996, without
the prior written consent of the Issuer, it would not enter into transactions
in securities of the Issuer that would, pursuant to Section 382 of the
Internal Revenue Code, have an adverse effect on the ability of the Issuer to
fully utilize its net operating losses.  This agreement was effective as of
April 19, 1996.

         RESTATED REGISTRATION RIGHTS AGREEMENT

         The "Restated Registration Rights Agreement" amended and restated in
its entirety the Registration Rights Agreement among Air Partners, Air Canada
and the Issuer dated as of April 27, 1993, a copy of which was filed as
Exhibit 4.3 with the original Schedule 13D.  Under Sections 2.1(a) and (b) of
the Restated Registration Rights Agreement, the aggregate number of demand
registrations of Registrable Securities (as defined in the Restated
Registration Rights Agreement) to which Air Partners and Air Canada are
entitled will be increased from four to six upon the closing of the Offering,
with such rights bearing allocated four to Air Partners and two to Air Canada. 
Section 2.2(a) of the Restated Registration Rights Agreement also provides Air
Partners and Air Canada incidental registration rights commencing on the date
of the closing of the Offering to and including the twelfth anniversary
thereof.  

         Finally, the Restated Registration Rights Agreement sets forth
certain agreements between the Issuer and Air Canada relating to the exercise
by Air Canada of the two demand registration rights allocated to Air Canada
under the Amended Stockholders' Agreement, which will be effective upon the
closing of the Offering.

         PROPOSED WARRANT AGREEMENT

         Air Partners is negotiating with the Issuer regarding a possible
agreement for the sale by Air Partners to the Issuer, at Air Partners'
election for the one-year period commencing August 15, 1996, of up to $50
million in intrinsic value (then-current Class B Common Stock price minus
exercise price) of Air Partners' Class B Warrants.  The purchase price would
be payable in cash.  The Board of Directors has authorized the Issuer to
effect a public issuance of up to $50 million of Class B Common Stock to fund
any such transaction.  Upon execution of any such agreement, it is expected
that the Issuer would reclassify $50 million from common equity to redeemable
warrants.

          Air Canada Shares and the shares of Class B Common Stock subject to
          the Overallotment Option) and the activities associated with the
          underwriting thereof (including road shows), provided that Air
          Canada shall not (except with respect to the Air Canada Shares and
          the shares of Class B Common Stock subject to the Overallotment
          Option) enter into an underwriting agreement or other agreement

Continental, Air Canada shall take all action necessary to cause each
individual designated or nominated by it to serve on the Board of Directors of
Continental to resign.

          12.  Agreement of Air Partners.  Air Partners hereby confirms,
covenants and agrees that it will not, prior to December 16, 1996, directly or

the Code. In connection with the foregoing covenant, except as expressly
provided below, Air Partners shall not, prior to December 16, 1996, enter into
any agreement relating to the Transfer or acquisition of any Continental

with respect to such stock) or Transfer or acquire such securities without
first notifying Continental of such contemplated transaction or agreement and
(x) counsel satisfactory to Continental having opined that such agreement,
Transfer or acquisition will not have the effect under Section 382 of the Code
of increasing the percentage ownership of any shareholders of Common Stock or
other securities constituting  stock  (within the meaning of Section 382(k)(6)
of the Code) or (y) Continental having otherwise consented to such agreement
or transaction, in which case Air Partners shall be deemed to be in compliance
with such covenant.  Continental shall, upon prior written Notice from Air
Partners, be required to consent to the following transactions unless such
transactions shall have been, in the opinion of counsel to Continental, the
subject of a change in law since the date hereof (by statute, regulation,
ruling or otherwise):  (i) the conversion of any or all shares of Class A
Common Stock beneficially owned by it into an equal number of shares of Class
B common stock if permitted at any time under the Restated Certificate, (ii)
the Transfer of Class A Warrants or Class B Warrants to Continental or the
entering into of an agreement relating to such Transfer, (iii) the exercise of
Class A Warrants or Class B Warrants beneficially owned by Air Partners or
(iv) the exercise of preemptive rights in accordance with Article Seventh of
the Restated Certificate.

          Any purported Transfer of Common Stock in violation of the preceding
paragraph shall be null and void and shall not operate to transfer title to,
or any interest in, the Common Stock purportedly Transferred to the purported
transferee.  In connection therewith, Air Partners shall take, upon the
request of Continental, all actions necessary to permit the placement of an
appropriate restrictive legend on the certificate(s) that represent the shares
of Common Stock beneficially owned, directly or indirectly, by Air Partners.

          Air Partners further represents that as of the date hereof it is not
a party to (nor are any of the shares of any class of Common Stock registered
in the name of, beneficially owned or controlled by Air Partners subject to)
any option, warrant or other right to acquire such Common Stock by any other
Person or entity other than as provided in the Stockholders Agreement. 

     13.  Except for the agreement of Continental set forth in (and the
obligations of the Parties contemplated in) Section 10 hereof, and the
covenants of Air Canada and Air Partners set forth in Section 11(d) and
Section 12, respectively, which shall be effective on and as of the date
hereof, the obligations of the Parties hereunder, and the effectiveness of the
amendments set forth herein, are subject to the closing of the Underwritten
Offering (the "Closing") and shall become effective concurrently therewith;
provided, however, that the covenants of Air Canada and Air Partners set forth
in Section 11(d) and Section 12, respectively, shall (i) not restrict the sale
of the Air Canada Shares (including the shares subject to the Overallotment
Option) and the Partner Shares, respectively, pursuant to the Underwritten
Offering and (ii) terminate if the Closing has not occurred on or prior to May
31, 1996 and shall subsequently become effective only upon the occurrence of
the Closing.

     14.  This Agreement shall be governed by, and construed in accordance
with, the laws of the State of New York.

     15.  The parties hereto agree that the obligations imposed on them in
this Agreement are special, unique and of an extraordinary character, and that
in the event of a breach by any such party, damages would not be an adequate
remedy and each party hereto shall, to the extent permitted by law, be
entitled to specific performance and injunctive and other equitable relief in
addition to any other remedy to which it may be entitled at law or in equity;
and each of the parties hereto, to the extent permitted by law, hereby waives
any requirement for the securing or posting of any bond in connection with the
obtaining of any such injunctive or other equitable relief.

     16.  Except as modified hereby, the Stockholders Agreement shall remain
in full force and effect.

     17.  This Agreement may be executed simultaneously in any number of
counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original, but all such
counterparts shall constitute one and the same instrument.

     2.1            (a)  Registration on Request.  Except as provided in
Section 2.1(b), upon receipt of a Notice of Demand from either Party,
Continental shall use its reasonable best efforts to effect at the earliest
practicable date the registration under the Securities Act of the Registrable
Securities that Continental has been so requested to register by such Party

          (b)  Registration Restrictions.  Notwithstanding the foregoing,
Continental shall not be obligated to take any action to effect any
registration pursuant to Section 2.1(a) (i) after Continental has effected six
(6) such registrations pursuant to such Section and in accordance with the
provisions of Section 2.1(f) (except for actions relating to a previous Notice
of Demand delivered pursuant to Section 2.1(a)); (ii) during any period (not
to exceed sixty (60) days) if the Independent Directors of Continental
determine in good faith that it would be materially detrimental to Continental
and its shareholders to file a registration statement at such time (such
determination to be evidenced by a certificate of the Chief Executive Officer
or any Senior or Executive Vice President of Continental and delivered at such
time to Continental and to the Parties); (iii) during the period commencing on

determination to be evidenced by a certificate of the Chief Executive Officer
or any Senior or Executive Vice President of Continental and delivered at such
time to Continental and to the Parties); (iv) if the Party providing the
Notice of Demand does not beneficially own, directly or indirectly, at least
five percent (5%) of the aggregate voting power of the then outstanding Voting

to this Section 2.1 has been effected pursuant to and in accordance with this
Agreement within the previous sixty (60) days; or (vi) with respect to a
Requested Registration by Air Canada in accordance with Section 6.03 of the
Stockholders Agreement (A) during any period (not to exceed thirty (30) days)
subsequent to January 31, 1997 if, during such period, Continental intends to
issue any securities or (B) except as otherwise provided below in the second
proviso of this sentence, if, within the six-month period immediately
preceding the issuance of a Notice of Demand by Air Canada subsequent to the
Exclusive Sales Period (as defined below), Air Canada has failed to execute
any lockup required of Air Partners in connection with any issuance by
Continental of its securities (a "Required Lockup"); provided, however, that
the exceptions to Continental s obligations under Section 2.1(a) set forth in
clauses (ii) and (iv) of this Section 2.1(b) shall not apply to any such
Requested Registration by Air Canada relating to a disposition of Registrable
Securities during the period commencing on December 16, 1996 and ending on
January 31, 1997 (the "Exclusive Sales Period"); and, provided, further, that
Air Canada shall not be obligated to execute any Required Lockup (and the fact
of any such non-execution shall not be deemed a failure by Air Canada under
clause (vi)(B) of this Section 2.1(b)) if the effect of such Required Lockup
would be to prevent Air Canada from selling Registrable Securities during the
Exclusive Sales Period pursuant to a Requested Registration in accordance with
Section 6.03 of the Shareholders Agreement.

          If, subsequent to the Exclusive Sales Period, Air Canada holds
Registrable Securities representing less than five percent (5%) of the
outstanding capital stock of Continental, Continental agrees to use its
reasonable best efforts to cause any underwriter or underwriters engaged by
Continental in connection with any offering of its securities to waive the
requirement (if any) that Air Canada execute a Required Lockup in connection
with such offering, it being specifically understood that Air Canada shall be
required to execute a Required Lockup if such a waiver is not obtained.

          (c)  Registration of Securities.  Without limiting the foregoing,
when making a request for registration pursuant to Section 2.1(a), the Party
providing the Notice of Demand may seek to register different types of
Registrable Securities and/or different classes of the same type of
Registrable Securities simultaneously and Continental shall use its, and in
the case of an underwritten offering, shall cause the managing underwriter or
underwriters to use its, or their, reasonable best efforts to effect such
registration and sale in accordance with the intended method or methods of
disposition specified in the Notice of Demand.

          (d)  Registration Statement Form.  Registrations under this Section
2.1 shall be on such appropriate registration form of the SEC (i) as shall be
selected by Continental and as shall be reasonably acceptable to the Party
providing the Notice of Demand and (ii) as shall permit the disposition of
such Registrable Securities in accordance with the intended method or methods
of disposition specified in the Notice of Demand.  Continental agrees to
include in any such registration statement all information which the Party
providing the Notice of Demand shall reasonably request.

          (e)  Expenses.  Subject to Section 2.3, Continental will pay all
Registration Expenses incurred in connection with a registration effected
(whether or not deemed effective pursuant to Section 2.1(f)) pursuant to this
Section 2.1, except that Continental shall not be so required to pay any
Registration Expenses in connection with a Requested Registration by Air
Canada in accordance with Section 6.03 of the Stockholders Agreement if a
previous Requested Registration by Air Canada was deemed to have been effected
pursuant to Section 2.1(f) hereof.  In addition, Continental shall use its
best efforts consistent with past practice to ensure that the underwriters
involved in the underwritten offering of Registrable Securities pay all road
show expenses in connection therewith.

          (f)  Effective Registration Statement.  For purposes of this
Agreement, a Requested Registration shall be deemed to have been effected
(including, without limitation for purposes of Section 2.1(b)(i)) if (and only
if) (i) a registration statement with respect thereto has become effective and
remains effective during the period provided for in Section 2.5(ii) or (ii)
such registration is deemed to have been effected pursuant this Section 2.1(f)
or Section 2.3(b).  A Requested Registration pursuant to this Section 2.1
shall not be considered effected for purposes of this Section 2.1(f) (A) if,
after it has become effective, such registration is interfered with by any
stop order, injunction or other order or requirement of the SEC or other
governmental agency or court for any reason (other than a misrepresentation or
an omission by the holders of such Registrable Securities in which case such
registration shall be deemed to have been effected pursuant to this Section
2.1(f)) and such order or injunction has not been lifted; or (B) if the
conditions to closing specified in the purchase agreement or underwriting
agreement entered into in connection with such registration have not been
satisfied (unless such condition or conditions have been waived or such non-
satisfaction is due to the wrongful or bad faith act, omission or
misrepresentation by the holders of such Registrable Securities in which case
such registration shall be deemed to have been effected pursuant to this
Section 2.1(f)).

          (g)  Selection of Underwriters.  If a Requested Registration
involves an underwritten offering, the underwriter or underwriters thereof
shall be selected by the Party providing the Notice of Demand with the
approval of Continental, such approval not to be unreasonably withheld;
provided, however, that if Air Canada is the Party providing the Notice of
Demand, the underwriter or underwriters thereof shall be Merrill Lynch & Co.
and/or Goldman, Sachs & Co. and/or any other investment bank mutually
acceptable to Continental and Air Canada.

          (h)  Priority in Demand Registrations.  If a registration pursuant
to this Section 2.1 involves an underwritten offering of the Registrable
Securities being registered to be distributed (on a firm commitment basis) by
or through one or more underwriters and the managing underwriter or
underwriters of such underwritten offering shall inform Continental and the
Party providing the Notice of Demand by letter of its belief that the number
of securities requested to be included in such registration exceeds the number
that can be sold in (or during the time of) such offering within a price range
acceptable to such Party or Parties, then Continental will include in such
registration such number of Registrable Securities that can be sold in (or
during the time of) such offering as requested to be included in such
registration by such Party or Parties in the manner specified in Section 6.03
of the Stockholders Agreement.

          2.2  Incidental Registration.

          (a)  Right to Include Registrable Securities.  During the period
commencing on the date this Agreement becomes effective in accordance with
Section 18 hereof to and including the twelfth (12th) anniversary thereof, if
Continental at any time proposes to register any of its securities under the
Securities Act (other than (i) by a registration on Form S-4 or Form S-8 or
any successor or similar form then in effect, (ii) pursuant to a registration
right granted by Continental as part of a bona-fide financing by Continental
structured as a private placement of securities (other than common stock or
warrants to purchase common stock) to be followed, within 270 days of the
consummation thereof, by the filing of a shelf registration statement with
respect to such securities, or (iii) pursuant to Section 2.1) in a form and in
a manner that would permit registration of the Registrable Securities, whether
or not for sale for its own account, it will, as soon as practicable (but in
no event less than twenty (20) days prior to the proposed date of filing the
registration statement relating to such registration), give prompt written
notice to the Parties and such Affiliates of the Parties as the Parties may
designate in writing to Continental prior to or within five (5) days after the
date of such notice to the Parties and who then hold Registrable Securities of
its intention to do so and of such holders' rights under this Section 2.2. 
Upon the written request of any such holder made within fifteen (15) days
after the receipt of any such notice to the Parties (which request shall
specify the Registrable Securities intended to be disposed of by such holder
and the intended method or methods of disposition thereof) (the "Incidental
Registration Notice"), Continental will use its reasonable best efforts to
effect the registration under the Securities Act of all Registrable Securities
which Continental has been so requested to register by the holders thereof, to
the extent requisite to permit the disposition (in accordance with the
intended method or methods thereof as aforesaid) of the Registrable Securities
so to be registered, provided that if, at any time after giving written notice
of its intention to register any securities and prior to the effective date of
the registration statement filed in connection with such registration,
Continental shall determine for any reason not to register or to delay
registration of such securities, Continental may, at its election, give
written notice of such determination to each such holder of Registrable
Securities and, thereupon, (i) in the case of a determination not to register,
shall be relieved of its obligation to register any Registrable Securities in
connection with such registration (but not from its obligation to pay any and
all expenses in connection therewith as specified in the last sentence of this
Section 2.2(a)), without prejudice, however, to the rights of the Parties to
request that such registration be effected as a registration under Section
2.1, and (ii) in the case of a determination to delay registering, shall be
permitted to delay registering any Registrable Securities, for the same period
as the delay in registering such other securities; and provided, further,
that, for purposes of this Section 2.2(a), the use by Continental of its
 reasonable best efforts  shall not require Continental to reduce the amount
or sale price of the securities it proposes to distribute for its own account. 
No registration effected under this Section 2.2 shall be deemed to have been
effected pursuant to Section 2.1 or shall relieve Continental of its
obligation to effect any registration upon request under Section 2.1.  Subject
to Section 2.3, Continental will pay all Registration Expenses incurred in
connection with each registration of Registrable Securities pursuant to this
Section 2.2.

          (b)  Priority in Incidental Registrations.  If (i) a registration
pursuant to this Section 2.2 involves an underwritten offering of the
securities being registered, whether or not for sale for the account of
Continental, to be distributed (on a firm commitment basis) by or through one
or more underwriters of recognized standing under underwriting terms
appropriate for such a transaction and (ii) the managing underwriter of such
underwritten offering shall inform Continental and the holders of the
Registrable Securities requesting such registration by letter of its belief
that the number of securities requested to be included in such registration
exceeds the number which can be sold in (or during the time of) such offering
within a price range acceptable to Continental, then Continental will include
in such registration such number of securities which Continental is so advised
can be sold in (or during the time of) such offering as follows:  first, all
securities proposed by Continental to be sold for its own account; second,
such Registrable Securities requested to be included in such registration by
either or both of the Parties as specified in Section 6.03 of the Stockholders
Agreement; third, such Registrable Securities requested to be included in such
registration by all other Requesting Holders pro rata on the basis of the
number of shares of such securities so proposed to be sold and so requested to
be included by such other holders; and fourth, all other securities of
Continental requested to be included in such registration pro rata on the
basis of the number of shares of such securities so proposed to be sold and so
requested to be included.

          2.3  Withdrawal from Registration.  Each Requesting Holder shall be
permitted to withdraw all or part of such holder's Registrable Securities
included in a Requested Registration or an Incidental Registration at any time
prior to the effective date of such registration; provided that (a) in the
event of a withdrawal from an Incidental Registration, any fees and
disbursements incurred by the Requesting Holders in connection with such
registration shall be paid by such Requesting Holders; and (b) in the event of
a withdrawal from a Requested Registration, such registration shall be deemed
to have been effected for purposes of Section 2.1(f) unless (i) the Parties
have paid any fees and disbursements incurred by them in connection with such
registration or (ii) such withdrawal is due to the occurrence of an adverse
change in market conditions or a materially adverse change in Continental's
business, condition (financial or otherwise) or prospects since the date of
the Notice of Demand relating to such registration.

          2.4  Holdback Agreement.  If a registration pursuant to this
Agreement involves an underwritten offering of the securities being
registered, each Party participating in such offering agrees to, and shall use
reasonable efforts to cause its Affiliates to, enter into a holdback agreement
with the underwriter or underwriters of such offering containing provisions of
the type customarily employed in such agreements with respect to registered
public offerings underwritten by nationally-recognized underwriting firms.

          2.5  Registration Procedures.  If and whenever Continental is
required to use its reasonable best efforts to effect the registration of any
Registrable Securities under the Securities Act as provided in Sections 2.1
and 2.2, Continental will as expeditiously as possible:

          (i)  prepare and (as soon thereafter as possible but in any event no
     later than (A) 120 days from the date a request for registration is made
     or (B) in the event Continental is required to undertake a Special Audit,
     150 days from such date) file with the SEC the requisite registration
     statement to effect such registration and thereafter use its reasonable
     best efforts to cause such registration statement to become effective,
     provided that as far in advance as practicable before filing such
     registration statement or any amendment thereto, Continental will furnish
     to the Requesting Holders copies of reasonably complete drafts of all
     such documents proposed to be filed (including exhibits), and any such
     holder shall have the opportunity to object to any information contained
     therein and Continental will make the corrections reasonably requested by
     such holder with respect to such information prior to filing any such
     registration statement or amendment; provided, however, that with respect
     to the first Requested Registration during the Exclusive Sales Period by
     Air Canada in accordance with Section 6.03 of the Stockholders Agreement,
     the time periods specified in clause (A) and clause (B) of this Section
     2.5(i) shall be 30 days and 60 days, respectively;

          (ii) prepare and file with the SEC such amendments and supplements
     to such registration statement and the prospectus used in connection
     therewith as may be necessary to keep such registration statement
     effective for a period not to exceed nine (9) months (or such shorter
     period as shall be necessary to complete the distribution of the secu-
     
     rities covered thereby, but not before the expiration of the applicable
     period referred to in Section 4(3) of the Securities Act and Rule 174
     thereunder) and comply with the provisions of the Securities Act with
     respect to the sale or other disposition of all securities covered by
     such registration statement during such period in accordance with the
     intended methods of disposition by the seller or sellers thereof set
     forth in such registration statement;

          (iii)     furnish to each seller of Registrable Securities covered
     by such registration statement such number of conformed copies of such
     registration statement and of each such amendment and supplement thereto
     (in each case including all exhibits and documents incorporated by
     reference), such number of copies of the prospectus contained in such
     registration statement (including each preliminary prospectus and any
     summary prospectus) and any other prospectus filed under Rule 424
     promulgated under the Securities Act relating to such holder's
     Registrable Securities, in conformity with the requirements of the
     Securities Act, and such other documents as such seller may reasonably
     request to facilitate the disposition of its Registrable Securities;

          (iv) use its reasonable best efforts to register or qualify all
     Registrable Securities and other securities covered by such registration
     statement under such other securities or blue sky law of such
     jurisdictions each seller thereof shall reasonably (in light of each such
     seller's intended plan of distribution) request, to keep such
     registration or qualification in effect for so long as such registration
     statement remains in effect, and take any other action which may be
     reasonably necessary or advisable to enable such seller to consummate the
     disposition in such jurisdictions of the securities owned by such seller,
     except that Continental shall not for any such purpose be required to (a)
     qualify generally to do business as a foreign corporation in any
     jurisdiction wherein it would not, but for the requirements of this
     clause (iv), be obligated to be so qualified, (b) subject itself to
     taxation in any such jurisdiction or (c) consent to general service of
     process in any such jurisdiction;

          (v)  use its reasonable best efforts to cause all Registrable
     Securities covered by such registration statement to be registered with
     or approved by such other governmental agencies or authorities as may be
     necessary to enable the seller or sellers thereof (or underwriter, if
     any) to consummate the disposition of such Registrable Securities in
     accordance with the plan of distribution set forth in such registration
     statement;

          (vi) furnish to each seller of Registrable Securities a signed
     counterpart, addressed to such seller (and underwriter, if any) of:

             (a)  an opinion of counsel to Continental, dated the effective
          date of such registration statement (and, if such registration
          includes an underwritten public offering, dated the date of the
          closing under the underwriting agreement), reasonably satisfactory
          in form and substance to such seller (and underwriter), and

             (b)  a "comfort" letter, dated the effective date of such
          registration statement (and, if such registration includes an
          underwritten public offering, dated the date of the closing under
          the underwriting agreement), signed by the independent public
          accountants who have certified Continental's financial statements
          included in such registration statement,

in each case covering substantially the same matters with respect to such
registration statement (and the prospectus included therein) and, in the case
of the accountants' letter, with respect to events subsequent to the date of
such financial statements, as are customarily covered in opinions of issuer's
counsel and in accountants' letters delivered to the underwriters in
underwritten public offerings of securities and, in the case of the
accountants' letter, such other financial matters as such sellers (or
underwriters, if any) may reasonably request;

          (vii)     promptly notify each seller of Registrable Securities
     covered by such registration statement, at any time when a prospectus
     relating thereto is required to be delivered under the Securities Act,
     upon discovery that, or upon the happening of any event known to
     Continental as a result of which, the prospectus included in such
     registration statement, as then in effect, includes an untrue statement
     of a material fact or omits to state any material fact required to be
     stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not misleading
     in light of the circumstances under which they were made, and at the
     request of any such seller as promptly as practicable prepare and furnish
     to such seller a reasonable number of copies of a supplement to or an
     amendment of such prospectus as may be necessary so that, as thereafter
     delivered to the purchasers of such securities, such prospectus shall not
     include an untrue statement of a material fact or omit to state a
     material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the
     statements therein not misleading in light of the circumstances under
     which they were made;

          (viii)    otherwise use its reasonable best efforts to comply with
     all applicable rules and regulations of the SEC, including the Securities
     Act and the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations promulgated
     thereunder, and make available to its security holders, as soon as
     reasonably practicable (but not more than fifteen (15) months) after the
     effective date of the registration statement, an earnings statement
     satisfying the provisions of Section 11(a) of the Securities Act and Rule
     158 promulgated thereunder;

          (ix) provide and cause to be maintained a transfer agent and
     registrar for all Registrable Securities covered by such registration
     statement from and after a date not later than the effective date of such
     registration statement;

          (x)  use its reasonable best efforts to list, on or prior to the
     effective date of such registration statement, all Registrable Securities
     covered by such registration statement on any securities exchange on
     which any of the Registrable Securities is then listed, if any;

          (xi) cooperate with each seller of Registrable Securities and each
     underwriter or agent participating in the disposition of such Registrable
     Securities and their respective counsel in connection with any filings
     required to be made with the National Association of Securities Dealers;

          (xii)     enter into such agreements and take such other actions as
     the Party issuing the Notice of Demand or the Requisite Holders, as the
     case may be, shall reasonably request in order to expedite or facilitate
     the disposition of such Registrable Securities, including making members
     of senior management available for participation in any road show
     organized by any underwriter or agent participating in the distribution
     of the Registrable Securities that are the subject of a Requested
     Registration; provided, that in no event shall Continental be required to
     cause any officer, director or employee thereof to participate in any
     such road show so organized in connection with the distribution of
     Registrable Securities that are the subject of a Requested Registration
     by Air Canada in accordance with Section 6.03 of the Stockholders
     Agreements if a previous Requested Registration by Air Canada was deemed
     to have been effected pursuant to Section 2.1(f) hereof; and

          (xiii)    promptly notify each seller and the underwriter or
     underwriters, if any:

     (a)       when such registration statement or any prospectus used in
     connection therewith, or any amendment or supplement thereto, has
     been filed and, with respect to such registration statement or any
     post-effective amendment thereto, when the same has become
     effective;

     (b)       of any written comments from the SEC with respect to any
     filing referred to in clause (a) and of any written request by the
     SEC for amendments or supplements to such registration statement or
     prospectus;

     (c)       of the notification to Continental by the SEC of its
     initiation of any proceeding with respect to, or of the issuance by
     the SEC of, any stop order suspending the effectiveness of such
     registration statement; and

     (d)       of the receipt by Continental of any notification with
     respect to the suspension of the qualification of any Registrable
     Securities for sale under the applicable securities or blue sky laws
     of any jurisdiction.

          Each seller of Registrable Securities as to which any registration
is being effected shall furnish to Continental such information regarding such
seller, the Registrable Securities held by such seller and the intended plan
of distribution of such securities as Continental may from time to time
reasonably request in writing in connection with such registration.

          Each seller of Registrable Securities agrees, by acquisition of such
Registrable Securities, that upon receipt of any notice from Continental of
the happening of any event of the kind described in clause (vii) of this
Section 2.5, such seller will forthwith discontinue such seller's disposition
of Registrable Securities pursuant to the registration statement relating to
such Registrable Securities until such seller's receipt of the copies of the
supplemented or amended prospectus contemplated by clause (vii) of this
Section 2.5 and, if so directed by Continental, will deliver to Continental
(at Continental's expense) all copies, other than permanent file copies, then
in such seller's possession of the prospectus relating to such Registrable
Securities current at the time of receipt of such notice.  In the event
Continental shall give any such notice, the period referred to in clause (ii)
of this Section 2.5 shall be extended by a number of days equal to the number
of days during the period from the date of receipt of such notice by such
sellers to and including the date when each holder of any Registrable
Securities covered by such registration statement receives the copies of the
supplemented or amended prospectus contemplated by clause (vii) of this
Section 2.5.

          2.6  Underwritten Offerings.

          (a)  Requested Underwritten Offerings.  If requested by the
underwriters for any underwritten offering pursuant to a Requested
Registration, Continental will enter into an underwriting agreement with such
underwriters for such offering, such agreement to be reasonably satisfactory
in substance and form to the Party providing the Notice of Demand and to
contain such representations and warranties by Continental and such other
terms as are generally prevailing in agreements of this type, including,
without limitation, indemnities to the effect and to the extent provided in
Section 2.8.  Each of the Parties participating in such registration shall be
a party to such underwriting agreement and may, at its option, require that
any or all of the representations and warranties by, and the other agreements
on the part of, Continental to and for the benefit of such underwriters shall
also be made to and for its benefit and that any or all of the conditions
precedent to the obligations of such underwriters under such underwriting
agreement be conditions precedent to its obligations thereunder.  Neither Air
Partners nor Air Canada shall be required to make any representations or
warranties to or agreements with Continental other than representations,
warranties or agreements regarding such holder, such holder's Registrable
Securities and such holder's intended method of distribution and any other
representation required by law.

          (b)  Incidental Underwritten Offerings.  If Continental at any time
proposes to register any of its securities under the Securities Act as
contemplated by Section 2.2 and such securities are to be distributed by or
through one or more underwriters, Continental will, if requested by any holder
or holders of Registrable Securities participating in such offering and
subject to Section 2.2(b), arrange for such underwriters to include all of the
Registrable Securities to be offered and sold by such holder or holders among
the securities to be distributed by such underwriters.  The holders of
Registrable Securities to be distributed by such underwriters shall be parties
to the underwriting agreement between Continental and such underwriters,
provided such agreement is reasonably satisfactory in substance and form to
the Requisite Holders, and may, at their option, require that any or all of
the representations and warranties by, and the other agreements on the part
of, Continental to and for the benefit of such underwriters shall also be made
to and for the benefit of such holders of Registrable Securities and that any
or all of the conditions precedent to the obligations of such underwriters
under such underwriting agreement be conditions precedent to the obligations
of such holders of Registrable Securities thereunder.  Any such holder of
Registrable Securities shall not be required to make any representations or
warranties to or agreements with Continental other than representations,
warranties or agreements regarding such holder, such holder's Registrable
Securities and such holder's intended method of distribution and any other
representation required by law.

          2.7  Preparation; Reasonable Investigation.  In connection with the
preparation and filing of each registration statement under the Securities Act
pursuant to this Agreement, Continental will give the holders of Registrable
Securities to be registered under such registration statement, their
underwriters, if any, and their respective counsel and accountants, the
opportunity to participate in the preparation of such registration statement,
each prospectus included therein or filed with the SEC in connection
therewith, and each amendment thereof or supplement thereto, and will give
each of them such reasonable access to its books and records and such
opportunities to discuss the business of Continental with its officers and the
independent public accountants who have certified its financial statements as
shall be necessary, in the opinion of such holders' and such underwriters'
respective counsel, to conduct a reasonable investigation within the meaning
of the Securities Act.

          2.8  Indemnification.

          (a)  Indemnification by Continental.  Continental agrees to
indemnify and hold harmless, to the full extent permitted by law, each holder
of Registrable Securities participating in an offering, its directors,
officers, employees, limited and general partners (either direct or indirect) 
(and such partners' directors, officers, employees and agents), agents and
each other Person, if any, who controls such holder within the meaning of the
Securities Act (each such Person, an "Indemnified Party") from and against any
losses, claims, damages or liabilities, joint or several, to which such
Indemnified Party may become subject under the Securities Act or otherwise,
insofar as such losses, claims, damages or liabilities (or actions or
proceedings, whether commenced or threatened, in respect thereof) arise out of
or are based upon any untrue statement or alleged untrue statement of any
material fact contained in any registration statement under which such
securities were registered under the Securities Act, any preliminary
prospectus, final prospectus or summary prospectus contained therein, or any
amendment or supplement thereto, or any omission or alleged omission to state
therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the
statements therein not misleading, and Continental will reimburse such
Indemnified Party for any legal or any other expenses reasonably incurred by
it in connection with investigating or defending any such loss, claim,
liability, action or proceeding, provided that in any such case Continental
shall not be liable to any particular Indemnified Party to the extent that
such loss, claim, damage, liability (or action or proceeding in respect
thereof) or expense arises out of or is based upon an untrue statement or
alleged untrue statement or omission or alleged omission made in such
registration statement, any such preliminary prospectus, final prospectus,
summary prospectus, amendment or supplement in reliance upon and in conformity
with written information furnished to Continental by such Indemnified Party
specifically for inclusion therein; and provided, further, that Continental
shall not be liable in any such case to the extent it is finally determined by
a court of competent jurisdiction that any such loss, claim, damage, liability
or expense arises out of or is based upon an untrue statement or alleged
untrue statement or omission or alleged omission made

          (i)  in any such preliminary prospectus, if (A) it was the
     responsibility of such Indemnified Party to provide the Person asserting
     such loss, claim, damage, liability or expense with a current copy of the
     prospectus and such Indemnified Party failed to deliver or cause to be
     delivered a copy of the prospectus to such Person after Continental had
     furnished such Indemnified Party with a sufficient number of copies of
     the same and (B) the prospectus completely corrected such untrue
     statement or omission; or
          (ii) in such prospectus, if such untrue statement or omission is
     completely corrected in an amendment or supplement to such prospectus and
     the Indemnified Party thereafter fails to deliver the prospectus as so
     amended or supplemented prior to or concurrently with the sale of
     Registrable Securities to the Person asserting such loss, claim, damage,
     liability or expense after Continental had furnished such Indemnified
     Party with a sufficient number copies of the same.

Such indemnity shall remain in full force and effect regardless of any
investigation made by or on behalf of such Indemnified Party and shall survive
the transfer of such securities by such Indemnified Party.  Continental shall
also indemnify each other Person who participates (including as an
underwriter) in the offering or sale of Registrable Securities, their officers
and directors and each other Person, if any, who controls any such
participating Person within the meaning of the Securities Act to the same
extent as provided above with respect to Indemnified Parties.

          (b)  Indemnification by the Sellers.  Continental may require, as a
condition to including any Registrable Securities in any registration
statement filed pursuant to Section 2.5 and as a condition to indemnifying
such sellers pursuant to this Section 2.8, that Continental shall have
received an undertaking reasonably satisfactory to it from each prospective
seller of such securities, to indemnify and hold harmless (in the same manner
and to the same extent as set forth in paragraph (a) of this Section 2.8)
Continental, each director, officer, employee and agent of Continental, and
each other Person, if any, who controls Continental within the meaning of the
Securities Act, from and against any losses, claims, damages or liabilities
(or actions or proceedings, whether commenced or threatened, in respect
thereof) arising out of or based upon any untrue statement or alleged untrue
statement of a material fact contained in any registration statement under
which such securities were registered under the Securities Act, any
preliminary prospectus, final prospectus or summary prospectus contained
therein, or any amendment or supplement thereto, or any omission or alleged
omission from such registration statement, preliminary prospectus, final
prospectus or summary prospectus, or any amendment or supplement thereto
required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein not
misleading, if (but only if) such untrue statement or alleged untrue statement
or omission or alleged omission was made in reliance upon and in conformity
with written information furnished to Continental by such prospective seller
specifically for inclusion therein; provided, however, that the obligation to
provide indemnification pursuant to this Section 2.8(b) shall be several, and
not joint and several, among such indemnifying parties.  Such indemnity shall
remain in full force and effect, regardless of any investigation made by or on
behalf of Continental or any such director, officer, employee, agent or
participating or controlling Person and shall survive the transfer of such
securities by such prospective seller.

          (c)  Notices of Claims, etc.  Promptly after receipt by an
indemnified party of notice of the commencement of any action or proceeding
involving a claim referred to in paragraphs (a) and (b) of this Section 2.8,
such indemnified party will, if a claim in respect thereof is to be made
against an indemnifying party, give prompt written notice to the latter of the
commencement of such action, provided that the failure of any indemnified
party to give notice as provided herein shall not relieve the indemnifying
party of its obligations under this Section 2.8, except to the extent that the
indemnifying party is actually and materially prejudiced or damaged by such
failure to give notice.  In case any such action is brought against an
indemnified party, the indemnifying party shall be entitled to participate in
and to assume the defense and control thereof, jointly with any other
indemnifying party similarly notified to the extent that it may wish, with
counsel reasonably satisfactory to such indemnified party, and after notice
from the indemnifying party to such indemnified party of its election so to
assume the defense thereof, the indemnifying party shall not be liable to such
indemnified party for any legal fees or other expenses subsequently incurred
by the latter in connection with the defense thereof other than reasonable
costs of investigation; provided, however, that if, in such indemnified
party's reasonable judgment, a conflict of interest between such indemnified
and indemnifying parties may exist in respect of such claim, such indemnified
party shall be entitled to separate counsel at the expense of the indemnifying
party.  In the event an indemnifying party shall not be entitled, or elects
not, to assume the defense of a claim, such indemnifying party shall not be
obligated to pay the fees and expenses of more than one counsel or firm of
counsel for all parties indemnified by such indemnifying party in respect of
such claim, unless in the reasonable judgment of any such indemnified party a
conflict of interest may exist between such indemnified party and any other of
such indemnified parties in respect of such claim, in which event the
indemnifying party shall be obligated to pay the fees and expenses of such
additional counsel (limited to one additional counsel) for such indemnified
party or parties.  No indemnifying party shall, without the consent of the
indemnified party, consent to entry of any judgment or enter into any
settlement that (i) does not include as an unconditional term thereof the
giving by the claimant or plaintiff to such indemnified party of a release
from all liability in respect of such claim or litigation or (ii) would impose
injunctive relief on such indemnified party.  No indemnifying party shall be
subject to any liability for any settlement made without its consent, which
consent shall not be unreasonably withheld.

          (d)  Other Indemnification.  The provisions of this Section 2.8
shall be in addition to any other rights to indemnification or contribution
which an indemnified party may have pursuant to law, equity, contract or
otherwise.

          (e)  Indemnification Payments.  The indemnification required by this
Section 2.8 shall be made by periodic payments of the amount thereof during
the course of the investigation or defense, promptly as and when bills are
received or expense, loss, damage or liability is incurred.

          (f)  Contribution.  If for any reason (other than the reasons
expressly specified in this Section 2.8) the foregoing indemnity and
reimbursement is unavailable or is insufficient to hold harmless an
indemnified party under paragraphs (a) or (b) of this Section 2.8, then each
indemnifying party shall contribute to the amount paid or payable by such
indemnified party as a result of any loss, claim, damage or liability (or
actions or proceedings, whether commenced or threatened, in respect thereof),
including, without limitation, any legal or other expenses reasonably incurred
by them in connection with investigating or defending any such loss, claim,
damage, liability, action or proceeding, in such proportion as is appropriate
to reflect the relative fault of the indemnifying party on the one hand and
the indemnified party on the other.  The relative fault shall be determined by
reference to, among other things, whether the untrue or alleged untrue
statement of a material fact or the omission or alleged omission to state a
material fact relates to information supplied by the indemnifying party or the
indemnified party and the parties' relative intent, knowledge, access to
information and opportunity to correct or prevent such untrue statement or
omission.  If, however, the allocation provided in the second preceding
sentence is not permitted by applicable law, or if the allocation provided in
the second preceding sentence provides a lesser sum to the indemnified party
than the amount hereinafter calculated, then each indemnifying party shall
contribute to the amount paid or payable by such indemnified party in such
proportion as is appropriate to reflect not only such relative fault but also
the relative benefits to the indemnifying party and the indemnified party as
well as any other relevant equitable considerations.  The parties agree that
it would not be just and equitable if contributions pursuant to this Section
2.8(f) were to be determined by pro rata allocation or by any other method of
allocation which does not take account of the equitable considerations
referred to in the preceding sentences of this Section 2.8(f). 
Notwithstanding anything in this Section 2.8(f) to the contrary, no
indemnifying party (other than Continental) shall be required pursuant to this
Section 2.8(f) to contribute any amount in excess of the net proceeds received
by such indemnifying party from the sale of Registrable Securities in the
offering to which the losses, claims, damages or liabilities of the
indemnified parties relate.  No person guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation
(within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the Securities Act) shall be entitled
to contribution from any person who was not guilty of such fraudulent
misrepresentation.

          3.   Rule 144.  Continental will file the reports required to be
filed by it under the Securities Act and the Exchange Act and the rules and
regulations adopted by the SEC thereunder (or, if Continental is not required
to file such reports, will, upon the request of the Parties, make publicly
available other information) and will take such further action as the Parties
may reasonably request, all to the extent required from time to time to enable
such parties to sell Registrable Securities without registration under the
Securities Act within the limitation of the exemptions provided by (i) Rule
144 under the Securities Act, as such Rule may be amended from time to time or
(ii) any similar rule or regulation hereafter adopted by the SEC.  Upon the
reasonable request of the Parties, Continental will deliver to such parties a
written statement as to whether it has complied with such requirements and
will, at its expense, forthwith upon the request of any such Party, deliver to
such Party a certificate, signed by Continental's principal financial officer,
stating (a) Continental's name, address and telephone number (including area
code), (b) Continental's Internal Revenue Service identification number, (c)
Continental's SEC file number, (d) the number of shares of each class of
capital stock outstanding as shown by the most recent report or statement
published by Continental, and (e) whether Continental has filed the reports
required to be filed under the Exchange Act for a period of at least ninety
(90) days prior to the date of such certificate and in addition has filed the
most recent annual report required to be filed thereunder.

          4.   Amendments and Waivers.  This Agreement may be amended,
supplemented or modified at any time, provided that each of the Parties and
Continental has provided its written consent to such amendment, supplement or
modification.  Subject to Section 7, any term or condition of this Agreement
may be waived at any time by the party that is entitled to the benefit
thereof, but no such waiver shall be effective unless set forth in a written
instrument duly executed by or on behalf of the party waiving such term or
condition.  No waiver by any party of any term or condition of this Agreement,
in any one or more instances, shall be deemed to be or construed as a waiver
of the same term or condition of this Agreement on any future occasion.

          5.   Entire Agreement; Other Agreements.  Subject to Section 18,
this Agreement supersedes all prior discussions and agreements between the
parties with respect to the subject matter hereof, including the Registration
Rights Agreement and Section 1.10 (but only Section 1.10) of the Investment
Agreement, and contains the sole and entire agreement between the parties with
respect to the subject matter hereof.

          6.   No Third Party Beneficiary.  The terms and provisions of this
Agreement are intended solely for the benefit of each party, their respective
Successors or permitted assigns and it is not the intention of the parties to
confer third-party beneficiary rights upon any other Person other than any
Person entitled to notice of the registration of Registrable Securities
pursuant to Section 2.2(a) or to indemnity under Section 2.8.

          7.   Invalid Provisions.  If any provision of this Agreement is held
to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable under any present or future law, (i)
such provision will be fully severable, (ii) this Agreement will be construed
and enforced as if such illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision had never
comprised a part hereof, (iii) the remaining provisions of this Agreement will
remain in full force and effect and will not be affected by the illegal,
invalid or unenforceable provision or by its severance herefrom and (iv) in
lieu of such illegal, invalid or unenforceable provision, there will be added
automatically as a part of this Agreement a legal, valid and enforceable
provision as similar in terms to such illegal, invalid or unenforceable
provision as may be possible.

          8.   Nominees for Beneficial Owners.  In the event that any
Registrable Securities are held by a nominee for the beneficial owner thereof,
the beneficial owner thereof may, at its election, be treated as the holder of
such Registrable Securities for purposes of request or other action by any
holder or holders of Registrable Securities pursuant to this Agreement or any
determination of any number or percentage of shares of Registrable Securities
held by any holder or holders of Registrable Securities contemplated by this
Agreement.  If the beneficial owner of any Registrable Securities so elects,
Continental may require assurances reasonably satisfactory to it of such
owner's beneficial ownership of such Registrable Securities.  For purposes of
this Agreement,  beneficial owner  (including, with its correlative meaning,
 beneficial ownership ) has the meaning ascribed to it in Article Sixth,
Section 3 of the Restated Certificate.

          9.   Notices.  All notices, requests and other communications
hereunder must be in writing and will be deemed to have been duly given only

notice in accordance with this Section 9 specifying such change to the other
parties.

          10.  Assignment.  This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to

          12.  Specific Performance.  The parties agree that, to the extent
permitted by law, (i) the obligations imposed on them in this Agreement are
special, unique and of an extraordinary character, and that in the event of a
breach by any such party damages would not be an adequate remedy; (ii) each to
the other parties shall be entitled to specific performance and injunctive and
other equitable relief in addition to any other remedy to which it may be
entitled at law or in equity; and (iii) any requirement for the securing or
posting of any bond in connection with the obtaining of any such injunctive or
other equitable relief is hereby waived.

CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK.

          14.  Majority of Shares.  For purposes of this Agreement, the phrase
"majority of shares" shall mean a majority in number of such shares and, with
respect to the Warrants, such phrase shall refer to the number of shares into
which such Warrants are exercisable.

          15.  Registration Rights to Others.  Continental represents and
warrants that it has not granted to any other Person rights with respect to
the registration of any Registrable Securities or any other securities issued
or to be issued by it, except for the registration rights granted by
Continental in connection with the PBGC Settlement (as defined in the
Investment Agreement).

          16.  Counterparts.  This Agreement may be executed simultaneously in
any number of counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original, but all
such counterparts shall together constitute one and the same instrument.

          17.  Provision of Information.  Each Party shall, and shall cause
its officers, directors and employees to, complete and execute all
questionnaires and other similar documents as Continental shall reasonably
request as required in connection with a Requested Registration or Incidental
Registration to the extent such Party is participating in such registration.

          18.  Effectiveness.   The obligations of the parties hereunder are
conditioned upon the occurrence of the Closing.  Until Closing takes place,
