In the event that Buyer does not exercise its option to purchase

5.   Contract Terms.

     Within thirty (30) days after Buyer exercises an option to

supplemental agreement amending the Purchase Agreement to add the
applicable Option Aircraft to the Purchase Agreement as a firm
Aircraft (the Option Aircraft Supplemental Agreement).

In the event the parties have not entered into such an Option
Aircraft Supplemental Agreement within the time period
contemplated herein, either party shall have the right,
exercisable by written or telegraphic notice given to the other
within ten (10) days after such period, to cancel the purchase of

agreement, or in the Purchase Agreement, as the case may be:

     (i)    purchase of an Aircraft under the Purchase Agreement
for any reason not attributable to the cancelling party;

     (ii)   payment by Buyer of the Option Deposit with respect to
such Option Aircraft pursuant to paragraph 3 herein; or

     (iii)  exercise of the option to purchase such Option
Aircraft pursuant to the terms hereof.

Cancellation of an option to purchase provided by this letter

terminate.

payments received from Buyer with respect to the affected Option
Aircraft.  Boeing shall be entitled to retain the Option Deposit
unless cancellation is attributable to Boeing's fault, in which
case the Option Deposit shall also be returned to Buyer without
interest.

Model 757-224 Aircraft

1.   Option Aircraft Description and Changes.

     1.1    Aircraft Description.  The Option Aircraft are 
described by Boeing Detail Specification D924N104-3, dated March
18, 1993, as amended and revised pursuant to the Purchase
Agreement.

     1.2    Changes.  The Option Aircraft Detail Specification
shall be revised to include:

            (1)  Changes applicable to the basic Model 757-200
aircraft which are developed by Boeing between the date of the
Detail Specification and the signing of an Option Aircraft
Supplemental Agreement.

            (2)  Changes mutually agreed upon.

            (3)  Changes required to obtain a Standard Certificate
of Airworthiness.

     1.3    Effect of Changes.  Changes to the Detail
Specification pursuant to the provisions of the clauses above
shall include the effects of such changes upon Option Aircraft
weight, balance, design and performance.

2.   Price Description.

     2.1    Price Adjustments.

            2.1.1  Base Price Adjustments.  The base airframe and
base engine price (pursuant to Article 3 of the Purchase
Agreement) of the Option Aircraft will be adjusted to Boeing's
and the engine manufacturer's then-current prices as of the date
of execution of the Option Aircraft Supplemental Agreement.

            2.1.2  Special Features.  The price for special
features incorporated in the Option Aircraft Detail Specification
will be adjusted to Boeing's then-current prices for such
features as of the date of execution of the Option Aircraft
Supplemental Agreement only to the extent that such increase is
attributable to an increase in Boeing's cost for purchased
equipment.

            2.1.3  Escalation Adjustments.  The base airframe and
special features price will be escalated according to the
applicable airframe and engine manufacturer escalation provisions
contained in Exhibit D of the Purchase Agreement.

Buyer agrees that the engine escalation provisions will be
adjusted if they are changed by the engine manufacturer prior to
the signing the Option Aircraft Supplemental Agreement.  In such
case, the then-current engine escalation provisions in effect at
the time of execution of the Option Aircraft Supplemental
Agreement will be incorporated into such agreement.

            2.1.4  Price Adjustments for Changes.  Boeing may
adjust the basic price and the advance payment base prices for
any changes mutually agreed upon by Buyer and Boeing subsequent
to the date that Buyer and Boeing enter into the Option Aircraft
Supplemental Agreement.

            2.1.5  BFE to SPE.  An estimate of the total price for
items of Buyer Furnished Equipment (BFE) changed to Seller
Purchased Equipment (SPE) pursuant to the Detail Specification is
included in the Option Aircraft price build-up.  The purchase
price of the Option Aircraft will be adjusted by the price
charged to Boeing for such items plus 10% of such price. 

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

3.   Advance Payments.

Option Aircraft pursuant to the schedule for payment of advance
payments provided in the Purchase Agreement.

<PAGE>
ARTICLE 3.  Price of Aircraft.

   3.1  Definitions.

      3.1.1  Special Features are the features incorporated in
Exhibit A which have been selected by Buyer.

      3.1.2  Base Aircraft Price is the Aircraft Basic Price
excluding the price of Special Features.

      3.1.3  Aircraft Basic Price is comprised of the Base

                          737-724        737-824  

Base Aircraft Price     [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL OMITTED AND
Special Features        FILED WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE
Aircraft Basic Price    COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR
                        CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT.]

   3.3  Aircraft Price.  The Aircraft Price will be established
at the time of delivery of such Aircraft to Buyer and will be the
sum of:

      3.3.1  the Aircraft Basic Price, set forth in Table 1, plus

      3.3.2  the Economic Price Adjustments for the Aircraft
Basic Price, as calculated pursuant to the formulas set forth in

      3.3.3  other price adjustments made pursuant to this
Agreement or other written agreements executed by Boeing and
Buyer.

   3.4  Advance Payment Base Price.

      3.4.1  Advance Payment Base Price.  For advance payment

Agreement.  The Advance Payment Base Price of each Aircraft is
set forth in Table 1.

   3.4.2  Adjustment of Advance Payment Base Prices - Long-Lead
Aircraft.  For Aircraft scheduled for delivery 36 months or more

No later than 25 months before the scheduled month of delivery of
each affected Aircraft, Boeing will increase or decrease the
Advance Payment Base Price of such Aircraft as required to
reflect the effects of (i) any adjustments in the Aircraft Basic
Price pursuant to this Agreement and (ii) the then-current
forecasted escalation factors used by Boeing.  Boeing will
provide the adjusted Advance Payment Base Prices for each
affected Aircraft to Buyer, and the advance payment schedule will
be considered amended to substitute such adjusted Advance Payment
Base Prices.

amount equal to 5% of an amount equal to the adjusted Advance
Payment Base Price of such Aircraft, after subtracting the total

<PAGE>
ARTICLE 6.  Excusable Delay.

   6.1  General.  Boeing will not be liable for or be deemed to be
in default under this Agreement on account of any delay in
delivery of any Aircraft or other performance hereunder arising
out of causes such as:  acts of God; war, armed hostilities,
riots, fires, floods, earthquakes or serious accidents;
governmental acts or failures to act affecting materials,
facilities or Aircraft; strikes or labor troubles causing
cessation, slowdown or interruption of work; damage to an
Aircraft; failure of or delay in transportation; or inability,
after due and timely diligence, to procure materials, systems,
accessories, equipment or parts; or arising out of any other
cause to the extent it is beyond Boeing's control or not
occasioned by Boeing's fault or negligence.  A delay resulting
from such causes is referred to as an "Excusable Delay".

   6.2  Excusable Delay of 12 Months.

        6.2.1  Anticipated Delay.  If Boeing concludes, based on
its appraisal of the facts and normal scheduling procedures, that
due to an Excusable Delay, delivery of an Aircraft will be
delayed more than 12 months beyond the month in which delivery is
scheduled, Boeing will promptly so notify Buyer in writing and
either party may then terminate this Agreement with respect to
such Aircraft by giving written notice to the other within 15
days after receipt by Buyer of Boeing's notice.  Failure of a
party to terminate the purchase of an Aircraft for an Excusable
Delay pursuant to this paragraph results in a waiver of that
party's right to terminate the purchase of such Aircraft for any
delay in delivery caused by such Excusable Delay.

        6.2.2  Actual Delay.  If, due to an Excusable Delay,
delivery of an Aircraft is delayed for more than 12 months beyond
the month in which delivery is scheduled, and such right to
terminate has not been waived under paragraph 6.2.1, either party
may terminate this Agreement with respect to such Aircraft by
giving written notice to the other within 15 days after the
expiration of such 12-month period.

   6.3  Aircraft Damaged Beyond Repair.  If, prior to delivery, an
Aircraft is destroyed or damaged beyond economic repair due to
any cause, Boeing will promptly notify Buyer in writing and
either party may then terminate this Agreement with respect to
such Aircraft.  If Boeing does not so terminate this Agreement
with respect to such Aircraft, such notice will specify the
earliest date reasonably possible, consistent with Boeing's other
contractual commitments and production capabilities, by which
Boeing will deliver a replacement for such Aircraft.  This
Agreement will thereupon terminate as to such Aircraft, unless
Buyer gives Boeing written notice, within 30 days after receipt
of Boeing's notice, that Buyer desires the proposed replacement
for such Aircraft.

   6.4  Agreement Revision.  If an Aircraft is delayed, or
destroyed or damaged beyond economic repair, and this Agreement
is not terminated pursuant to this Article, this Agreement will
be appropriately revised.

   6.5  Agreement Termination.

        6.5.1  Termination under this Article will discharge all
obligations and liabilities of Boeing and Buyer hereunder with
respect to terminated Aircraft and all related undelivered items
and services, except that Boeing will return to Buyer, without
interest, all advance payments related to such Aircraft,

        6.5.2  If either party terminates this Agreement as to any
Aircraft pursuant to this Article, Boeing may, upon written
notice to Buyer within 30 days after such termination, purchase
from Buyer any Buyer Furnished Equipment related to such
Aircraft, at the invoice prices paid, or contracted to be paid,
by Buyer.

   6.6  Exclusive Rights.  The termination rights set forth in
this Article are in substitution for any and all other rights of
termination or contract lapse or any other claim arising by
operation of law by virtue of delays in performance covered by
this Article.

<PAGE>
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 737-700/-800 aircraft that do not affect
the Aircraft Purchase Price or adversely affect Aircraft
delivery, guaranteed weight, guaranteed performance or compliance
with the interchangeability or replaceability requirements set
forth in the Detail Specification.  If Boeing makes changes
Pursuant to this paragraph, Boeing will promptly notify Buyer of
such changes.


<PAGE>
ARTICLE 8.  Federal Aviation Requirements and Certificates.

   8.1  FAA Certificates.

        8.1.1  Boeing will obtain from the Federal Aviation
Administration (FAA):

               8.1.1.1  a Type Certificate (transport category)
issued pursuant to Part 21 of the Federal Aviation Regulations
for the type of aircraft covered by this Agreement, and

               8.1.1.2  a Standard Airworthiness Certificate for
each Aircraft issued pursuant to Part 21 of the Federal Aviation
Regulations, which will be provided to Buyer with delivery of the
Aircraft.

        8.1.2  Boeing will not be obligated to obtain any other
certificates or approvals for the Aircraft.

        8.1.3  If the use of either FAA certificate is
discontinued prior to delivery of an Aircraft, references in this
Agreement to such discontinued certificate will be deemed
references to its superseding FAA certificate.  If the FAA does
not issue a superseding certificate, Boeing's only obligation
under this paragraph will be to comply with the Detail
Specification.

   8.2  FAA Manufacturer Changes.

        8.2.1  If the FAA, or any other governmental agency having
jurisdiction, requires any change to the Aircraft, data relating
to the Aircraft, or testing of the Aircraft in order to obtain
the Standard Airworthiness Certificate (Manufacturer Change),
such Manufacturer Change will be made prior to delivery of such
Aircraft.

        8.2.2  If prior to Aircraft delivery a Manufacturer Change
is required to be incorporated in an Aircraft, it will be
incorporated at no charge to Buyer, unless the requirement is
promulgated subsequent to the date of this Agreement, in which
case Buyer will pay Boeing's charge only for Aircraft scheduled
for delivery to Buyer (a) 18 months or more after the date of
this Agreement or (b) after the date of Boeing's receipt of the
Type Certificate for the Model 737-700/-800, whichever is later.

   8.3  FAA Operator Changes.

        8.3.1  Boeing will deliver each Aircraft with the changes
in equipment incorporated (or, at Boeing's sole discretion, with
suitable provisions for the incorporation of such equipment) that
is required by Federal Aviation Regulations which (i) are
generally applicable with respect to transport category aircraft
to be used in United States certified air carriage and (ii) have
to be complied with on or before the date of delivery of such
Aircraft (Operator Changes).

        8.3.2  If Operator Changes are incorporated in an
Aircraft, Buyer will pay Boeing's charge applicable to such
Aircraft.

   8.4  Delays; Changes to this Agreement.  If delivery of an
Aircraft is delayed due to the incorporation of a Manufacturer
Change or an Operator Change, the delivery of the Aircraft will
be appropriately revised to reflect such delay.  This Agreement
will also be revised to reflect appropriate changes in the
Aircraft Price, design, performance, weight and balance due to
the incorporation of a Manufacturer Change or an Operator Change.


<PAGE>
ARTICLE 9.  Representatives, Inspection, Flights and Test Data.

   9.1  Office Space at Boeing.  From a date 12 months prior to
delivery of the first Aircraft, and until the delivery of the
last Aircraft, Boeing will furnish, without additional charge,
suitable office space and equipment in or conveniently located
near its plant in Seattle for the accommodation of up to three
personnel of Buyer.

   9.2  Inspection by Buyer.  Designated representatives of Buyer
may inspect the manufacturing of the Aircraft at all reasonable
times.  However, if access to any part of Boeing's plant is
restricted by the United States Government, Boeing will be
allowed a reasonable time to arrange for inspection elsewhere. 
All inspections by Buyer's representatives will be performed so
as not to hinder manufacture or performance by Boeing.

   9.3  Aircraft Flight.  Prior to delivery, each Aircraft will be
flown by Boeing for such periods as may be required to
demonstrate to Buyer the function of the Aircraft and its
equipment in accordance with Boeing's production flight test
procedures.  The aggregate duration of such flights will be not
less than 1-1/2 hours or more than 4 hours.  Five persons
designated by Buyer may participate in such flights as observers.

   9.4  Test Data.  Boeing will furnish to Buyer, as soon as
practicable, flight test data obtained on an aircraft of the type
purchased hereunder, certified as correct by Boeing, to evidence
compliance with any performance guarantees set forth in this
Agreement.  Any Performance Guarantee will be deemed to be met if
reasonable engineering interpretations and calculations based on
such flight test data establish that the Aircraft would, if
actually flown, comply with such guarantee.

   9.5  Special Aircraft Test Requirements.  Boeing may use the
Aircraft for flight and ground tests prior to delivery to Buyer,
without reduction in the Aircraft Purchase Price, if such tests
are deemed necessary by Boeing to:

        9.5.1  obtain or maintain the Type Certificate or Standard
Airworthiness Certificate for the Aircraft; or

        9.5.2  evaluate aircraft improvement changes that may be
offered for production or retrofit incorporation in any aircraft.

   9.6  Indemnity.  Boeing will indemnify and hold harmless Buyer
and Buyer's observers from and against all claims and
liabilities, including costs and expenses (including attorneys'
fees) incident thereto, for injury to or death of any person or
persons, including employees of Boeing but excluding employees,
officers or agents of Buyer, or for loss of or damage to any
property, arising out of or in connection with the operation of
the Aircraft during all demonstration and test flights conducted
under the provisions of this Article, whether or not arising in
tort or occasioned in whole or in part by the negligence of Buyer
or any of Buyer's observers, whether active, passive or imputed.

<PAGE>
ARTICLE 10.   Assignment, Resale or Lease.

   10.1  Assignment.  This Agreement will inure to the benefit of
and be binding upon each of the parties hereto and their
respective successors and assigns.  Neither the rights nor the
duties of either party under this Agreement may be assigned or
delegated, or contracted to be assigned or delegated, in whole or
part, without the prior written consent of the other party,
except that:

        10.1.1  Either party may assign its interest to a
corporation that (i) results from any merger or reorganization of
such party or (ii) acquires substantially all the assets of such
party;

        10.1.2  Boeing may assign its rights to receive money; and

        10.1.3  Boeing may assign all or any part of its rights
and obligations under this Agreement to any wholly owned
subsidiary of Boeing, provided that Boeing will remain fully and
solely responsible to Buyer for all obligations and liabilities
as the seller of the Aircraft, and Buyer will continue to deal
exclusively with Boeing.

   10.2  Transfer by Buyer at Delivery.  Buyer may, and at
Buyer's request Boeing will, take any action reasonably required
for the purpose of causing an Aircraft, at time of delivery, to
be subjected to an equipment trust, conditional sale, lien or
other arrangement for the financing by Buyer of such Aircraft. 
No action taken by either party pursuant to this paragraph,
however, will require Boeing to divest itself of title to or
possession of such Aircraft until delivery and payment therefor
pursuant to this Agreement.

   10.3  Sale by Buyer After Delivery.  If, following delivery of
any Aircraft, Buyer sells such Aircraft (including any sale for
financing purposes), then all of Buyer's rights with respect to
such Aircraft under this Agreement will inure to the benefit of
the purchaser of such Aircraft, effective upon Boeing's receipt
of such purchaser's express written agreement, in form
satisfactory to Boeing, to be bound by and to comply with all
applicable terms, conditions and limitations of this Agreement.

   10.4  Lease by Buyer After Delivery.  If, following delivery
of any Aircraft, Buyer leases such Aircraft, Buyer will not
assign to the lessee of such Aircraft any rights under this
Agreement without Boeing's prior written consent, which consent
will not be unreasonably withheld.

   10.5  No Increase in Boeing Liability.  No action taken by
Buyer or Boeing relating to the assignment, resale or lease of
any Aircraft or this Agreement will subject Boeing to any
liability beyond that in this Agreement or modify in any way
Boeing's obligations under this Agreement.

   10.6  Exculpatory or Indemnity Clause in Post-Delivery Sale or
Lease.  If, following delivery of an Aircraft, Buyer sells or
leases such Aircraft and obtains from the transferee an
exculpatory or indemnity clause protecting Buyer, Buyer will
include the same protection for Boeing.

                                 PART A

                              BOEING WARRANTY


1.    Warranties.

      Subject to the exceptions set forth herein, Boeing warrants
that, at the time of delivery, each Aircraft, including all
installed systems, accessories, equipment and parts, will:

      1.1     conform to the Detail Specification, as it may be
changed pursuant to this Agreement, except such portions  stated
to be estimates, approximations, design objectives, or design
criteria, or described as not guaranteed;

      1.2     be free from defects in material and workmanship,
including process of manufacture; and

      1.3     be free from defects in design, including selection
of (i) materials and (ii) process of manufacture, in view of the
state of the art at the time of design.

      For purposes of this Boeing Warranty, nonconformance with
the Detail Specification, defects in material or workmanship and
defects in design may hereinafter be called "defects" or a
"defect", and the term "system", "accessory", "equipment" or
"part" may hereinafter be called "item" or "items."

2.    Exceptions.

      The warranties above will not apply to BFE.  The warranty
above covering material and workmanship and the warranty above
covering design will not apply to Engines or to any other item
purchased by Boeing but not manufactured to Boeing's detailed
design.  However, any defect in the Boeing workmanship installing
such BFE, Engines or other items in an Aircraft will constitute a
defect in workmanship covered by such warranties.

3.    Survival of Warranties.

      Neither the warranty of conformance to the Detail
Specification applicable to Engines and other items purchased by
Boeing but not manufactured to Boeing's detailed design, nor any
Performance Guarantees, will survive delivery of the Aircraft. 
The remaining warranties set forth herein will survive delivery
of the Aircraft, subject to the limitations and conditions set
forth herein.

4.    Warranty Periods and Claims.

      4.1     The warranty periods are:

              4.1.1    As to a defect in conformance to the Detail
Specification, 48 months after delivery of each Aircraft, and

              4.1.2    As to a defect in material, workmanship or
design in any item,  48 months after delivery of each Aircraft in
which such item was initially installed.

      4.2     Boeing's Product Assurance Regional Manager at
Renton, Washington must receive the warranty claim in writing at
the earliest practicable time after the defect becomes apparent
but in no event later than 90 days after expiration of the
applicable warranty period.

      4.3     Such warranty claim must include the data set forth
below and, if requested by Boeing, reasonable evidence that the
claimed defect did not result from any act or omission of Buyer.

              4.3.1    Identity of the item or Aircraft involved,
including Boeing part number, serial number if applicable,
nomenclature and the quantity claimed to be defective;

              4.3.2    Identity of the Aircraft on which the
claimed item was installed as original equipment;

              4.3.3    Date the claimed defect became apparent
which will be the date such defect was discovered by Buyer or the
warranty date set forth in a Boeing service bulletin or service
letter, whichever date occurs first; and

              4.3.4    Description of the claimed defect and
circumstances, including Boeing service bulletin or Boeing
service letter number if claim involves a service bulletin or
letter.

      4.4     Upon completion of Boeing's warranty claim
investigation, performed within a reasonable time period,
including examination of any item or Aircraft returned to Boeing,
Boeing will provide a written disposition of its warranty claim
findings to Buyer.  In the event Boeing must reject Buyer's
warranty claim, Boeing will provide reasonable substantiation of
such rejection in its disposition.

5.    Remedies.

      Buyer's remedies under this Boeing Warranty are as follows:

      5.1     As to a defect in conformance to the Detail
Specification, the correction at Boeing's expense of such defect;
provided, however, that Boeing will not be obligated to correct
any defect that has no material adverse effect on the
maintenance, use or operation of the Aircraft.  The warranty
period for the corrected item will be the unexpired warranty
period for the defective item.

      5.2     As to a defect in material or workmanship, (i) the
repair at Boeing's expense of such defect or, (ii) at Boeing's
option, the replacement of such item with a similar item free
from defect or the issuance of a credit memorandum to reimburse
Buyer for a spare part previously purchased from Boeing as the
replacement for such defective item.  The warranty period for
either correction will be the unexpired warranty period for the
defective item.

      5.3     As to a defect in design, the correction at Boeing's
expense of such defect.  The warranty period for such correction
is 18 months from receipt by Buyer of corrective material or the
end of the original design warranty period for the defective
item, whichever is later.

      5.4     Boeing will issue a credit memorandum to reimburse
Buyer at the Warranty Labor Rate for the direct labor hours
required for removal from the Aircraft of a defective item and
the reinstallation in the Aircraft of the corrected item.

6.    Returned Items.

      Unless otherwise provided in this Agreement, the Aircraft
or item claimed to be defective must be returned to Boeing as
soon as practicable.  Buyer may also provide specific technical
repair or correction instructions with such return.  The absence
of such instructions will evidence Buyer's authorization for
Boeing to proceed using Boeing information and data.  The
following criteria will apply with respect to return of Aircraft
or items to Boeing:

      6.1     As to Aircraft:

              6.1.1    An Aircraft may be returned only if

                       6.1.1.1  substantially all the work to be
performed by Boeing is covered by this Boeing Warranty, and

                       6.1.1.2  Buyer does not have the capability
to perform, nor is it practical for Boeing personnel to perform,
the warranty work away from Boeing's facilities.

              6.1.2    All warranty work will be performed at
Boeing's expense, with reasonable efforts to minimize Aircraft
out-of-service time.  In addition, Boeing will reimburse Buyer by
issuing a credit memorandum for the cost of fuel, oil and landing
fees incurred in ferrying the Aircraft to Boeing's facilities and
in ferrying the Aircraft back to Buyer's facilities.  Buyer will
minimize the length of both ferry flights.

              6.1.3    Any nonwarranty work performed by Boeing
will be paid for by Buyer at Boeing's then-standard rates.

              6.1.4    A separate agreement based on Boeing's
then-standard form will be entered into to cover the return of
and work on such Aircraft.

      6.2     As to any system, accessory, equipment or part:

              6.2.1    All warranty work will be performed at
Boeing's expense, with reasonable efforts to minimize item
out-of-service time for items returned.

              6.2.2    Boeing's turnaround-time objectives for
repair or replacement are: 10 working days for avionic and
electronic items and 30 working days for other items when
corrected at Boeing's facilities, or 40 working days when
corrected at the facilities of a Boeing subcontractor. 
Turnaround time starts the date Boeing receives the returned
item, together with Buyer's warranty claim describing the work,
and ends the date of shipment by Boeing of such item.  If a
turnaround-time objective is not achieved and a resultant
critical parts shortage is experienced by Buyer, and Buyer has
procured spare parts for such item in accordance with the Boeing
Recommended Spare Parts List, Boeing will, upon request from
Buyer, either:

                       6.2.2.1   expedite repair or replacement of
the item or

                       6.2.2.2   provide a similar item on a
no-charge loan or no-charge lease basis until the repaired or
replaced item is provided to Buyer.

              6.2.3    The freight charge for shipment to Boeing of
any item will be paid by Buyer; however, Boeing will reimburse
Buyer by issuing a credit memorandum for such charge for any item
determined to be defective under this Boeing Warranty.  The
freight charge for the return shipment to Buyer of any such
defective item which has been repaired, replaced or corrected
pursuant to this Boeing Warranty will be paid by Boeing.

      6.3     Title to and risk of loss of any Aircraft or item
returned to Boeing will at all times remain with Buyer and/or any
other owner of such Aircraft or item, except that at the time
Boeing ships a replacement item to Buyer, title to and risk of
loss (i) for the returned item will pass to Boeing and (ii) for
the replacement item will pass to Buyer.  While Boeing has care,
custody and control of an Aircraft or item, Boeing will have only
such liabilities as a bailee for mutual benefit would have, but
will not be liable for loss of use.

7.    Nonrepairable Items.

      Buyer may scrap any defective nonrepairable item having a
then-current Boeing spare part selling price of $2,000 or less
and make a claim for a replacement item.  For a defective
nonrepairable item having a then-current Boeing spare part
selling price greater than $2,000, an authorized Boeing
representative must confirm the nonrepairability of any such
item.  Boeing will display best efforts to have such Boeing
representative available within 30 days.  Buyer's claim for an
item with a spare part selling price exceeding $2,000 must
include such confirmation.

8.    Reimbursement for Certain Inspection Labor Costs.

      8.1     In addition to the remedies set forth in this Boeing
Warranty, Boeing will reimburse Buyer by issuing a credit
memorandum at the Warranty Labor Rate for the direct labor hours
expended by Buyer in performing inspections of the Aircraft to
determine whether or not a covered defect exists in any system,
accessory, equipment or part manufactured to Boeing's detailed
design, provided that:

              8.1.1    such inspections are recommended by a Boeing
service bulletin or service letter issued by Boeing within 48
months after delivery of such Aircraft, and

              8.1.2    such reimbursement will not apply to any
inspections performed as an alternative to accomplishing
corrective action when such corrective action is available to
Buyer at the time such inspections are performed.

      8.2     If a covered defect is determined to exist as a
result of the foregoing inspections, the remedies under this
Boeing warranty will apply to Aircraft in warranty as of the
warranty date set forth in the applicable Boeing service bulletin
or service letter or the date the defect was discovered by Buyer,
whichever date occurs first.

9.    Wear and Tear.

      Normal wear and tear and the need for regular maintenance
and overhaul will not constitute a defect.

10.   Disclaimer and Release; Exclusion of Liabilities.

      This Part A and the rights and remedies of Buyer and
obligations of Boeing herein are subject to the Disclaimer and
Release and Exclusion of Consequential and Other Damages
provisions of Article 12 of this Agreement.

11.   Buyer's Indemnification of Boeing.

      The provisions of Part E, "Buyer's Indemnification of
Boeing and Insurance" of Exhibit C, will apply to all warranty
work performed by Boeing hereunder in accordance with Buyer's
specific technical repair or correction instructions, to the
extent any legal liability of Boeing is based upon the content of
such instructions.

written instructions, using parts and materials as may be
furnished by Boeing and/or Boeing approved parts and materials as
may be furnished by Buyer.

4.    Claims for Reimbursement.

      Buyer's claim for reimbursement must be submitted in
writing to Boeing promptly after completion of the work.  Such
claim must include the data set forth in paragraph 4.3 of Part A

      4.2     Date work was completed by Buyer;

      4.3     Itemized account of the direct labor hours expended
in performing the work; and

      4.4     Itemized account of the direct materials
incorporated in the work.

5.    Reimbursement.

will reimburse Buyer by issuing a credit memorandum as follows:

      5.1     Direct Labor.

              At the Warranty Labor Rate specified herein for
labor hours expended by Buyer's direct labor employees in
performing the work, including removal, disassembly, inspection,
bench testing, reassembly, final inspection,  and reinstallation,
but not to exceed Boeing's estimate of required labor hours, and

      If Boeing determines that the Interface Problem is
partially attributable to the design of an item manufactured to
Boeing's detailed design and partially to the design of an item
not manufactured to Boeing's detailed design, Boeing will seek a
solution to the Interface Problem through the cooperative efforts
of Boeing and the manufacturer of the other item and will
promptly advise Buyer of resulting corrective actions and
recommendations.

5.    General.

1.   Buyer's Indemnification Of Boeing.

     Buyer hereby indemnifies and holds harmless Boeing from and
against all claims and liabilities, including costs and expenses
(including attorneys' fees) incident thereto or incident to
successfully establishing the right to indemnification, for
injury to or death of any person or persons, including employees
of Buyer but not employees of Boeing, or for loss of or damage to
any property, including Aircraft, arising out of or in any way
related to the performance by Boeing of training, services or
other obligations pursuant to this Exhibit C, whether or not
arising in tort or occasioned in whole or in part by the
negligence of Boeing, whether active, passive or imputed.

     1.1    With regard to training, services and obligations

            (a) To name Boeing as an additional insured in
connection with the performance by Boeing of training, services,
or other obligations provided under this Exhibit C.

            (b) To provide that the insurance arranged herein will
be primary and without right of contribution with respect to any
other insurance which may be available for the protection of
Boeing.

            (c) To provide that all provisions of the insurance,
except the limits of liability, will operate to give each insured
or additional insured the same protection as if there were a
separate policy issued covering each insured or additional
insured.

            (d) To provide that no act, omission, breach of any
warranty or condition, or misrepresentation on the part of the
Insured or any other person or party (other than by Boeing) will
void, exclude, minimize, or adversely change this coverage as it
applies to Boeing.

     2.3    For Coverages Specified in 2.1 and 2.2.

            (a) Acknowledgment from Buyer's insurance broker that
the insurers and/or reinsurers have been provided a copy of the
Agreement and accept and insure the risks and indemnity herein to
the extent of the coverage and endorsements as described in this
certificate.


            (b) To give 30 day written notice of cancellation,
termination or adverse material alteration of the policies (7 day
written notice in the event of War Risk or such lesser period as
may be in effect with prior notice).

            (c) That Boeing will not be responsible for payment,
set off, or assessment of any kind of any premiums in connection
with the policies, endorsements or coverages described herein.

            (d) For the purpose of this Part E, "Boeing" is

                             (1995 Base Price)


1.   Formula.

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

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

     P = Aircraft Basic Price (as set forth in Article 3.2 of           
this Agreement).

     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.

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

                                  Months to be Utilized
Month of Scheduled                in Determining the
Aircraft Delivery                 Value of ECI and ICI     

January                           June  B, July  B, Aug.  B
February                          July  B, Aug.  B, Sept. B
March                             Aug.  B, Sept. B, Oct.  B

May                               Oct.  B, Nov.  B, Dec.  B
June                              Nov.  B, Dec.  B, Jan.  D
July                              Dec.  B, Jan.  D, Feb.  D
August                            Jan.  D, Feb.  D, Mar.  D
September                         Feb.  D, Mar.  D, Apr.  D
October                           Mar.  D, Apr.  D, May   D
November                          Apr.  D, May   D, June  D
December                          May   D, June  D, July  D

The following definitions of B and D will apply:

     B =    The calendar year before the year in which the
            scheduled month of delivery as set forth in Article
            2.1 occurs.

     D =    The calendar year during which the scheduled month of
            delivery as set forth in Article 2.1 occurs.

2.   If at the time of delivery of an Aircraft Boeing is unable
to determine the Aircraft 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 Aircraft Price Adjustment, to be used at the time
of delivery 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 Aircraft 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 Aircraft 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
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 Aircraft Price Adjustment, such values
will be used to determine any increase or decrease in the
Aircraft Price Adjustment 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, 1995, 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 Aircraft Price Adjustment.

Note:       Any rounding of a number, as required under this
            Exhibit D with respect to escalation of the Aircraft
            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.

costs arising out of any actual or alleged infringement of any
patent or other intellectual property rights by BFE or arising

Subject:   Letter Agreement No. 1951-2 to
           Purchase Agreement No. 1951 -
           Seller Purchased Equipment

Gentlemen:

This Letter Agreement amends Purchase Agreement No. 1951 dated as
of even date herewith (the Agreement) between The Boeing Company
(Boeing) and Continental Airlines, Inc. (Buyer) relating to Model
737-724/-824 aircraft (the Aircraft).

For purposes of this Letter Agreement the following definitions
apply:

Seller Purchased Equipment (SPE) is Buyer Furnished Equipment
(BFE) that Boeing purchases for Buyer.

Developmental Buyer Furnished Equipment (DBFE) is all BFE not
previously certified for installation on the Aircraft.

This Letter Agreement does not include developmental avionics. 
Developmental avionics are avionics that have not been previously
certified for installation on the Aircraft.

All other terms used herein and in the Agreement, and not defined
above, will have the same meaning as in the Agreement.

Buyer has requested and Boeing hereby agrees that Boeing will
purchase as SPE certain BFE identified by Buyer pursuant to
Change Requests.  Accordingly, Boeing and Buyer agree with
respect to such SPE as follows:

1.  Price.

    Advance Payments.  An estimated SPE price will be included in
the Aircraft Advance Payment Base Price for the purpose of
establishing the advance payments for each Aircraft.  The
estimated price of this SPE for each Aircraft is [CONFIDENTIAL
MATERIAL OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND
EXCHANGE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL
TREATMENT.]

    Aircraft Price.  The Aircraft Price will be adjusted to
reflect (i) the actual costs charged Boeing by the SPE suppliers,
(ii) a handling fee of 10% of such costs and (iii) transportation
charges.  If all DBFE, except for developmental avionics, is
converted to SPE, Boeing will waive the handling fee for all SPE.

2.  Responsibilities.

    2.1  With respect to SPE, Buyer is responsible for:

         (i)    selecting the supplier and advising Boeing as to
the price negotiated between Buyer and supplier on or before:

         737-724            737-824          

         10/6/96            2/12/97          for galleys
                            for seats;
         9/03/96            9/03/96

         (ii)   selecting a FAA certifiable part; and

         (iii)  providing to Boeing the SPE part
specification/Buyer requirements.

    2.2  With respect to SPE, Boeing is responsible for:

         (i)    placing and managing the purchase order with the
supplier;

         (ii)   coordinating with the suppliers on technical
issues;

         (iii)  ensuring that the delivered SPE complies with the
part specification;

         (iv)   obtaining certification of the Aircraft with the
SPE installed; and

         (v)    obtaining for Buyer the supplier's standard
warranty for the SPE.  SPE is deemed to be BFE for purposes of
Exhibit B, the Product Assurance Document, of the Agreement.

3.  Supplier Selection For SPE Galleys and Seats.

    In addition to those responsibilities described above, for
SPE galleys and seats the following provisions apply with respect
to Buyer's selection of suppliers:

    Galley Requirements.  Buyer will provide Boeing not later
than August 7, 1996 the definitive galley configuration
requirements for the Model 737-724.  Buyer will provide Boeing
not later than November 27, 1996 the definitive galley
configuration requirements for the Model 737-824.

    Bidder's List.  Boeing has submitted to Buyer, for
information purposes, a bidder's list of existing suppliers of
seats and galleys.

    Request for Quotation (RFQ).  Boeing has issued its RFQ
inviting such potential bidders to submit bids for the galleys
and seats by July 15, 1996.

    Recommended Bidders.  Boeing has submitted to Buyer a list of
recommended bidders from which to choose a supplier for the
galleys and seats.  The recommendation is based on an evaluation
of the bids submitted using price, weight, warranty and schedule
as the criteria.

    Supplier Selection.  If Buyer selects a seat or galley
supplier that is not on the Boeing recommended list, such seat or
galley will become BFE and the provisions of Exhibit E, Buyer
Furnished Equipment Provisions Document, of the Agreement will
apply.

4.  Changes.

    After this Letter Agreement is signed, changes to SPE may
only be made by and between Boeing and the suppliers.  Buyer's
contacts with SPE suppliers relating to design (including
selection of materials and colors), weights, prices (except for
price negotiation prior to the supplier delection date) or
schedules are for informational purposes only.  If Buyer wants
changes made to any of the above, requests must be made directly
to Boeing for negotiating with the supplier.

5.  Proprietary Rights.

    Boeing's obligation to purchase SPE will not impose upon
Boeing any obligation to compensate Buyer or any supplier for any
proprietary rights Buyer may have in the design of the SPE.

6.  Remedies.

    If Buyer does not comply with the obligations above, Boeing
may:

    (i)  delay delivery of the Aircraft for the period of non-
compliance;

    (ii)   deliver the Aircraft without installing the SPE;

    (iii)  substitute a comparable part and invoice Buyer for the
cost; and/or

    (iv)   increase the Aircraft Price by the amount of Boeing's
additional costs attributable to such noncompliance.

7.  Buyer Participation in Price Negotiations for SPE.  Subject
to the following conditions, Boeing agrees that Buyer may
negotiate the price with vendors for certain items of BFE which
have been changed to SPE pursuant to this Letter Agreement.

    a.  Number of Items.  Boeing and Buyer have mutually agreed
on a list of specific equipment (the SPE Item) for which Buyer
shall negotiate directly with the vendors to establish the price
for each SPE Item.  The SPE Item list includes seats, galleys,
and interior furnishings.  Buyer shall provide the price of the
SPE Item when Buyer notifies Boeing of the SPE Item vendor.

    b.  Required Dates.  Boeing's agreement to permit Buyer to
negotiate prices with vendors for SPE Items is subject to Buyer's
agreement to meet all of Boeing's required dates with respect to
each SPE Item.

    c.  Right to Approve Selected Vendors.  Boeing shall retain
the right to reasonably approve the list of vendors for each SPE
Item.

8.  Buyer's Indemnification of Boeing.

    Buyer will indemnify and hold harmless Boeing from and
against all claims and liabilities, including costs and expenses
(including attorneys' fees) incident thereto or incident to
successfully establishing the right to indemnification, for
injury to or death of any person or persons, including employees
of Buyer but not employees of Boeing, or for loss of or damage to
any property, including Aircraft, arising out of or in any way
connected with any nonconformance or defect in any SPE and
whether or not arising in tort or occasioned in whole or in part
by the negligence of Boeing, whether active, passive or imputed. 
This indemnity will not apply with respect to any nonconformance
or defect caused solely by Boeing's installation of the SPE.

Very truly yours,

THE BOEING COMPANY

TREATMENT.] additional Model 737-824 Aircraft [CONFIDENTIAL
MATERIAL OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND

FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT.]

3.  Option Aircraft Deposit.

    In consideration of Boeing's grant to Buyer of options to

with the execution of the Purchase Agreement for the Aircraft,
Buyer will pay a deposit to Boeing of [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL
OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE
COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT.] for
each Option Aircraft (the Option Deposit).  In the event Buyer
exercises an option herein for an Option Aircraft, the amount of
the Option Deposit for such Option Aircraft will be credited
against the first advance payment due for such Option Aircraft
pursuant to the advance payment schedule set forth in Article 5
of the Purchase Agreement.  

In the event that Buyer does not exercise its option to purchase

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

5.  Contract Terms.

    Within thirty (30) days after Buyer exercises an option to
purchase Option Aircraft pursuant to paragraph 4 above, Boeing
and Buyer will use their best reasonable efforts to enter into a
supplemental agreement amending the Purchase Agreement to add the
applicable Option Aircraft to the Purchase Agreement as a firm
Aircraft (the Option Aircraft Supplemental Agreement).

    In the event the parties have not entered into such an Option
Aircraft Supplemental Agreement within the time period
contemplated herein, either party shall have the right,
exercisable by written or telegraphic notice given to the other
within ten (10) days after such period, to cancel the purchase of
such Option Aircraft.

6.  Cancellation of Option to Purchase.

    Either Boeing or Buyer may cancel the option to purchase an
Option Aircraft if any of the following events are not
accomplished by the respective dates contemplated in this Letter
Agreement, or in the Purchase Agreement, as the case may be:

    (i)    purchase of the Aircraft under the Purchase Agreement
for any reason not attributable to the cancelling party;

    (ii)   payment by Buyer of the Option Deposit with respect to
such Option Aircraft pursuant to paragraph 3 herein; or

    (iii)  exercise of the option to purchase such Option Aircraft
pursuant to the terms hereof.

based on the termination of the purchase of an Aircraft under the
Purchase Agreement shall be on a one-for-one basis, for each
Aircraft so terminated.

    Cancellation of an option to purchase provided by this letter
agreement shall be caused by either party giving written notice
to the other within ten (10) days after the respective date in
question.  Upon receipt of such notice, all rights and
obligations of the parties with respect to an Option Aircraft for
which the option to purchase has been cancelled shall thereupon
terminate.

    Boeing shall promptly refund to Buyer, without interest, any
payments received from Buyer with respect to the affected Option
Aircraft.  Boeing shall be entitled to retain the Option Deposit
unless cancellation is attributable to Boeing's fault, in which
case the Option Deposit shall also be returned to Buyer without
interest.

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

8.  Applicability.

    Except as otherwise specifically provided, limited or
excluded herein, all Option Aircraft [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL
OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE
COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT.]

Model 737-824 Aircraft

1.  Option Aircraft Description and Changes.

    1.1    Aircraft Description.  The Option Aircraft are 
described by Boeing Detail Specification D6-38808, Revision E,
dated September 15, 1995, as amended and revised pursuant to the
Purchase Agreement.

    1.2    Changes.  The Option Aircraft Detail Specification
shall be revised to include:

           (1)  Changes applicable to the basic Model 737-800
aircraft which are developed by Boeing between the date of the
Detail Specification and the signing of an Option Aircraft
Supplemental Agreement.

           (2)  Changes mutually agreed upon.

           (3)  Changes required to obtain a Standard Certificate
of Airworthiness.

    1.3    Effect of Changes.  Changes to the Detail Specification
pursuant to the provisions of the clauses above shall include the
effects of such changes upon Option Aircraft weight, balance,
design and performance.

2.  Price Description.

    2.1    Price Adjustments.

           2.1.1  Base Price Adjustments.  The base aircraft price
(pursuant to Article 3 of the Purchase Agreement) of the Option
Aircraft will be adjusted to Boeing's and the engine
manufacturer's then-current prices as of the date of execution of
the Option Aircraft Supplemental Agreement.

           2.1.2  Special Features.  The price for special features
incorporated in the Option Aircraft Detail Specification will be
adjusted to Boeing's then-current prices for such features as of
the date of execution of the Option Aircraft Supplemental
Agreement only to the extent that such increase is attributable
to an increase in Boeing's cost for purchased equipment.

           2.1.3  Escalation Adjustments.  The base airframe and
special features price will be escalated according to the
applicable airframe and engine manufacturer escalation provisions
contained in Exhibit D of the Purchase Agreement.

    Buyer agrees that the engine escalation provisions will be
adjusted if they are changed by the engine manufacturer prior to
signing the Option Aircraft Supplemental Agreement.  In such
case, the then-current engine escalation provisions in effect at
the time of execution of the Option Aircraft Supplemental
Agreement will be incorporated into such agreement.

           2.1.4  Price Adjustments for Changes.  Boeing may adjust
the basic price and the advance payment base prices for any
changes mutually agreed upon by Buyer and Boeing subsequent to
the date that Buyer and Boeing enter into the Option Aircraft
Supplemental Agreement.

           2.1.5  BFE to SPE.  An estimate of the total price for
items of Buyer Furnished Equipment (BFE) changed to Seller
Purchased Equipment (SPE) pursuant to the Detail Specification is
included in the Option Aircraft price build-up.  The purchase
price of the Option Aircraft will be adjusted by the price
charged to Boeing for such items plus 10% of such price. 

3.  Advance Payments.

    3.1    Buyer shall pay to Boeing advance payments for the
Option Aircraft pursuant to the schedule for payment of advance
payments provided in the Purchase Agreement.

Subject:   Letter Agreement No. 1951-4 to
           Purchase Agreement No. 1951 -
           Waiver of Aircraft Demonstration Flights


Gentlemen:

This Letter Agreement amends Purchase Agreement No. 1951 dated as
of even date herewith (the Agreement) between The Boeing Company
(Boeing) and Continental Airlines, Inc. (Buyer) relating to Model
737-724/-824 aircraft (the Aircraft).

All terms not defined herein have the same meaning as in the
Agreement.

1.  Fuel Entitlement at Delivery.

    At the time of delivery of the Aircraft, Boeing will provide
to Buyer, at no charge, 1,000 gallons of jet fuel.

2.  Waiver of Demonstration Flight.

    Notwithstanding the provisions of the Agreement requiring the
Aircraft to be test flown prior to delivery for the purpose of
demonstrating to Buyer the functioning of such Aircraft and its
equipment, upon notice to Boeing at least 90 days prior to the
scheduled date of the Aircraft delivery, or as agreed between the
parties, Buyer may waive such flight.  With respect to each
waived demonstration flight, the following provisions will apply:

    2.1.  Additional Fuel.  Promptly after delivery of the Aircraft,
Boeing will load on the Aircraft an amount of jet fuel which
together with the 1,000 gallons provided at delivery, equals a
full tank.

    2.2.  Reimbursement for Correction of Flight Discrepancies.

          2.2.1  Ferry Flight.   Except for Aircraft to be used
promptly after delivery for Boeing flight crew training provided
to Buyer at or near Seattle, Washington, Boeing will reimburse
Buyer for Buyer's direct labor costs (as defined below) and the
cost of any material (Correction Costs) required to correct any
flight discrepancy detected by Buyer while the Aircraft is being
ferried from Seattle, Washington , to Buyer's main base or
previously agreed alternate destination, to the extent such
Correction Costs and labor costs are not covered under a warranty
provided by Boeing or by any of its suppliers.  Within 90 days
after the date of such ferry flight Buyer will submit to Boeing's
Director, Product Assurance Contracts, at Renton, Washington, a
written itemized statement describing any such flight discrepancy
and indicating the Correction Costs and labor costs incurred by
Buyer for the correction of such flight discrepancy.

          2.2.2  Training Flights.   If the Aircraft will be used
promptly after its delivery for Boeing flight crew training at or
near Seattle, Washington, Boeing will reimburse Buyer for any
Correction Costs, and for any charges by Boeing to Buyer for
labor (Boeing Labor Charges) required to correct any flight
discrepancy which may be detected by Buyer during such flight
crew training to the extent such Correction Costs and such Boeing
Labor Charges are not covered under a warranty provided by Boeing
or by any of its suppliers.  Within 90 days after the completion
of such flight crew training, Buyer will submit to Boeing's
Director, Product Assurance Contracts, at Renton, Washington, a
written itemized statement describing any such flight discrepancy
and indicating the Correction Costs and Boeing Labor Charges
incurred by Buyer for the correction of such flight discrepancy.

          2.2.3  Definitions.   For purposes of reimbursement
under this paragraph; (i) Buyer's direct labor costs will be
determined using the Warranty Labor Rate in effect between the
parties as of the date such labor is expended, and (ii) flight
discrepancies mean any failure or malfunction of such Aircraft,
or the accessories, equipment, systems and parts installed
therein which results from a defect or malfunction in such
Aircraft, accessories, equipment, systems and parts or a
nonconformance to the Detail Specification for such Aircraft
which was present at the time of delivery of the Aircraft to
Buyer and which, if detected during a Boeing predelivery
demonstration flight, would have been reported in the pilot's
flight discrepancy report and would have been corrected by Boeing
prior to the delivery of such Aircraft to Buyer.

    2.3.  Return of Aircraft.  If any flight discrepancy as
defined above is detected by Buyer during the ferry flight of any
Aircraft, which requires the return of such Aircraft to Boeing's
facilities at Seattle, Washington, for correction by Boeing,
title to and risk of loss of such Aircraft will at all times
remain with Buyer and Boeing will have such responsibility for
such Aircraft while it is on the ground at Boeing's Seattle,
Washington, facilities as is chargeable by law to a bailee for
mutual benefit, but Boeing will not be chargeable for loss of
use.

(Boeing) and Continental Airlines, Inc. (Buyer) relating to Model
737-724/-824 aircraft (the Aircraft).

All terms used herein and in the Agreement, and not defined
herein, will have the same meaning as in the Agreement.

1.  Aircraft Configuration.

    1.1  Preliminary Configuration.  Boeing and Buyer have
established a preliminary configuration (Preliminary
Configuration) for the Aircraft which is comprised of the Basic
Detail Specification described in Exhibit A plus certain Change
Requests identified in the Attachment hereto which (i) Buyer has
accepted (Accepted Change Requests) or (ii) has yet to give its
accept or reject condition (Open Change Requests) for
incorporation in the Aircraft.  Boeing has not yet determined
pricing and/or offerability with respect to certain Master
Changes (Study Master Changes) which Boeing has agreed to process
for Buyer's consideration.

    1.2  Selection of Change Requests for Final Configuration.  On
or before August 23, 1996, Boeing will provide to Buyer prices
for all Study Master Changes determined by Boeing to be offerable
for incorporation in the Aircraft.  Not later than September 3,
1996 or unless otherwise previously agreed to between Boeing and
Buyer, Buyer will provide to Boeing a complete list of those
Accepted Change Requests, inclusive of its accepted Open Change
Requests and Study Master Changes made offerable by Boeing, it
has selected for incorporation in the Aircraft.  The Basic Detail
Specification, and Buyer's list of Accepted Change Requests and
Master Changes will comprise the final configuration (Final
Configuration) of the Aircraft.

    1.3  Amendment to the Agreement.  On or about September 30,
1996, Boeing and Buyer shall execute a Supplemental Agreement
amending the Agreement as required to reflect the Aircraft Final
Configuration, including, but not limited to, revison of the
following terms and provisions: 

         Article 3                Price of Aircraft
         Article 5                Payment
         Exhibit A                Aircraft Configuration
         Exhibit D                Price Adjustments                   
                                     Due to Economic Fluctuations -
                                     Airframe and Engine 
         LA 1951-2                SPE
         LA 1951-3                Option Aircraft
         [CONFIDENTIAL MATERIAL OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY WITH
THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION PURSUANT TO A REQUEST FOR
CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT.]

    1.4  Buyer's Detail Specification.  Within 90 days after Final
Configuration, Boeing will provide to Buyer a revision to the
Detail Specification reflecting the Aircraft Final Configuration. 
This revision to the Detail Specification will also reflect
changes made to Boeing's basic Model 737-700 and 737-800 aircraft
specification between the revision date of the Boeing basic Model
737-700 and 737-800 Detail Specification referenced in the
Agreement and the date of execution of the Supplemental Agreement
referenced in paragraph 1.3 above.

2.  Preliminary Pricing Estimates.  Buyer understands that Boeing
cannot establish the final Aircraft Basic Price and Advance
Payment Base Price of the Aircraft until Final Configuration of
the Aircraft is known.  For Buyer's planning purposes, however,
an estimate for the Preliminary Aircraft Basic Price and
Preliminary Advance Payment Base Price of the Aircraft has been
established using an average amount of special features typically
selected by other operators of Model 737-700 and 737-800
aircraft, which may or may not accurately reflect Buyer's final
selection of special features.  The preliminary price build up is
attached hereto as Attachment B.

           Spares Initial Provisioning

Gentlemen:

This Letter Agreement amends Purchase Agreement No. 1951 dated as
of even date herewith (the Agreement) between The Boeing Company
(Boeing) and Continental Airlines, Inc. (Buyer) relating to Model
737-724/-824 aircraft (the Aircraft).

All terms used herein and in the Agreement or Customer Services
General Terms Agreement (CSGTA), and not defined herein, will
have the same meaning as in the Agreement or the CSGTA.

1.   Applicability.

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

2.   Initial Provisioning Meeting.

     Boeing will conduct an initial provisioning meeting (Initial
Provisioning Meeting) with Buyer to establish mutually agreeable
procedures to accomplish Buyer's initial provisioning of spare
parts for the Aircraft.  The parties will agree, during the
Initial Provisioning Meeting on the operational data to be
provided by Buyer for Boeing's use in preparing its quantity
recommendations for initial provisioning of spare parts for the
Aircraft, exclusive of special tools, ground support equipment,
engines and engine parts (Provisioning Items).  Such operational
data to be provided by Buyer will be the data described in
Section E of Boeing Manual D6-81834, entitled Spares Provisioning
Product Guide (Boeing Initial Provisioning Implementation Manual)
which will be furnished to Buyer prior to the Initial
Provisioning Meeting.  The parties will also agree on the
provisioning documentation data to be provided by Boeing.  Such
data will be essentially in accordance with the provisions of
Chapter 1 of ATA International Specification 2000, Revision 1,
dated April 20, 1989, as described in Boeing Initial Provisioning
Implementation Manual D6-49090 (such data will be hereinafter
referred to collectively as the "Provisioning Data").  Boeing
will provide instruction in the use of the initial provisioning
documentation.  This instruction will be provided in conjunction
with the Initial Provisioning Meeting.  In addition, the parties
will discuss spares ordering procedures and other matters related
to the provisioning for the Aircraft.  The time and location for
such Initial Provisioning Meeting will be mutually agreed upon
between the parties; however, Boeing and Buyer will use their
best efforts to convene such meeting within 30 days after
execution of the Agreement.

3.   Initial Provisioning Documentation.

     3.1  Provisioning Data.  Boeing will furnish Provisioning
Data to Buyer on or about February 1 , 1997 unless otherwise
agreed to between Boeing and Buyer.  The Provisioning Data will
be as complete as possible and will cover Provisioning Items
selected by Boeing for review by Buyer for initial provisioning
for the Aircraft.  The Provisioning Data will set forth the
prices for Provisioning Items which are Boeing Spare Parts and
such prices will be firm and remain in effect until the date or
dates set forth in Paragraph 4.1, Boeing Spare Parts, by which
orders must be placed with Boeing.  Boeing will, from time to
time, until a date approximately 90 days following delivery of
the last Aircraft or until the delivery configuration of each of
the Aircraft is reflected in the Provisioning Data, whichever is
later, furnish to Buyer revisions to the Provisioning Data.

     3.2  Provisioning IPC.  Boeing will, on or about March 1,
1997, furnish to Buyer a Boeing Illustrated Parts Catalog (IPC),
hereinafter referred to as the "Provisioning IPC."  The
Provisioning IPC will be as complete as possible and will cover
Provisioning Items selected by Boeing for review by Buyer for
initial provisioning for the Aircraft.  Boeing will, from time to
time, until a date approximately 90 days following delivery of
the last Aircraft, or until the delivery configuration of each of
the Aircraft is reflected in the Provisioning IPC, whichever is
later, furnish to Buyer revisions to the Provisioning IPC.

     3.3  Buyer Furnished Equipment (BFE) Provisioning Data.

          3.3.1  Boeing's Responsibility.  Boeing will include BFE
end items in the Provisioning Data and Provisioning IPC for BFE
installed on Buyer's Aircraft provided such equipment has been
installed on other Aircraft by Boeing and Boeing has data on the
BFE.

          3.3.2  Buyer's Responsibility.  Buyer will be
responsible for ensuring BFE data is provided to Boeing by the
BFE supplier in a format reasonably acceptable to Boeing for BFE
not covered by 3.3.1 above.  If the data is not provided to
Boeing in a timely manner and in a format reasonably acceptable
to Boeing, such BFE equipment will not be included in Boeing's
Provisioning Data or IPC.

     3.4  Other Data.  Boeing will submit to Buyer listings of Raw
Materials, Standard Parts and Bulk Materials recommended for use
by Buyer in the maintenance and repair of the Aircraft.

4.   Purchase from Boeing of Spare Parts as Initial Provisioning
     for the Aircraft.

     4.1  Boeing Spare Parts.  Buyer will place orders for
Provisioning Items by May 1, 1997; provided, however, that in
those instances where Boeing submits any revision to the
Provisioning Data, Buyer will place orders for Boeing Spare Parts
covered by such revision within 60 days following the date of
such submittal.  At Buyer's request, Boeing will process
"controlled shipments" by shipping full or partial quantities of
an order on a schedule specified by Buyer, provided the final
shipment is made no later than 24 months after receipt of the
order.

     4.2  Vendor Provisioning Items.  Buyer may place orders with
Boeing for Provisioning Items which are manufactured by vendors
or to their detailed design and are covered by the Provisioning
Data as initial provisioning for the Aircraft.  The price to
Buyer for any such vendor Provisioning Item will be 112% of the
vendor's quoted price to Boeing therefor.  If Buyer elects to
purchase such vendor Provisioning Items from Boeing, Buyer will
place its orders therefor in accordance with the provisions of
Paragraph 4.1, Boeing Spare Parts.

     4.3  Ground Support Equipment and Special Tools.  Buyer may
place orders with Boeing for ground support equipment (GSE) and
special tools manufactured by vendors which Buyer determines it
will initially require for maintenance, overhaul and servicing of
the Aircraft and/or engines.  The price to Buyer for such GSE or
special tools will be one hundred twelve percent (112%) of the
vendor's quoted price to Boeing therefor.  If Buyer elects to
purchase such GSE and special tools from Boeing, Buyer will place
its orders therefor by the date set forth in Paragraph 4.1,
Boeing Spare Parts or such later date as the parties may mutually
agree.

     4.4  Spare Engines and Engine Spare Parts.  Buyer may place
orders with Boeing for spare engines and/or engine spare parts
which Buyer determines it will initially require for support of
the Aircraft or for maintenance and overhaul of the engines.  The
price to Buyer for such spare engines or such engine spare parts,
will be 105% of the engine manufacturer's quoted price to Boeing
for the engine, and 112% of the engine manufacturer's quoted
price to Boeing for the engine spare parts.  If Buyer elects to
purchase such spare engines or engine spare parts through Boeing,
Buyer will place its orders on a date to be mutually agreed upon
during the Initial Provisioning Meeting.

     4.5  QEC Kits.  Boeing will, on or about January 1, 1997,
furnish to Buyer a listing of all components which could be
included in the Quick Engine Change (QEC) kits which may be
purchased by Buyer from Boeing.  Buyer agrees to review such
listing and indicate by marking on one copy of such listing those
components that Buyer desires included in its QEC kits.  Buyer
will return such marked copy to Boeing within 30 days after
Buyer's receipt of such listing.  Within 30 days after Boeing's
receipt of such marked copy, Boeing will republish such listing
to reflect only those components selected by Buyer and will
provide copies of such republished listing to Buyer.  Boeing will
from time to time furnish revisions to such republished listing
until a date approximately 90 days after delivery of the last QEC
kit ordered by Buyer for the Aircraft.  Boeing will furnish to
Buyer as soon as practicable a statement setting forth a firm
price for the QEC kit configuration selected by Buyer.  Buyer
agrees to place orders with Boeing for the QEC kits for the
Aircraft by March 1, 1997.

     4.6  Payment for Provisioning Items.  The payment provisions
of the General Terms Agreement between Boeing and Buyer will be
applicable to Provisioning Items ordered by Buyer from Boeing for
the Aircraft.

5.   Delivery.

     Boeing will, insofar as reasonably possible, deliver to
Buyer the Spare Parts ordered by Buyer in accordance with the
provisions of this letter on dates reasonably calculated to
conform to Buyer's anticipated needs in view of the scheduled
deliveries of the Aircraft.  Buyer and Boeing will agree upon the
date to begin delivery of the Provisioning Spare Parts ordered in
accordance with this letter.  Where appropriate, Boeing will
arrange for shipment of such Spare Parts, which are manufactured
by vendors, directly to Buyer from the applicable vendor's
facility.  The routing and method of shipment for initial
deliveries and all subsequent deliveries of such Spare Parts will
be as mutually agreed between Boeing and Buyer.

6.   Substitution for Obsolete Spare Parts.

     6.1  Obligation to Substitute.  In the event that, prior to
delivery of the first Aircraft pursuant to the Agreement, any
Spare Part purchased by Buyer from Boeing in accordance with this
letter is rendered obsolete or unusable due to the redesign of
the Aircraft or of any accessory, equipment or part therefor,
(other than a redesign at Buyer's request), Boeing will deliver
to Buyer new and usable Spare Parts in substitution for such
obsolete or unusable Spare Parts and Buyer will return the
obsolete or unusable Spare Parts to Boeing.  Boeing will credit
Buyer's account with Boeing with the price paid by Buyer for any
such obsolete or unusable Spare Part and will invoice Buyer for
the purchase price of any such substitute Spare Part delivered to
Buyer.

     6.2  Delivery of Obsolete Spare Parts and Substitutes
Therefor.  Obsolete or unusable Spare Parts returned by Buyer
pursuant to this Item will be delivered to Boeing at its Seattle
Distribution Center, or such other destination as Boeing may
reasonably designate.  Spare Parts substituted for such returned
obsolete or unusable Spare Parts will be delivered to Buyer at
Boeing's Seattle Distribution Center, or such other Boeing
shipping point as Boeing may reasonably designate.  Boeing will
pay the freight charges for the shipment from Buyer to Boeing of
any such obsolete or unusable Spare Part and for the shipment
from Boeing to Buyer of any such substitute Spare Part.

7.   Repurchase of Provisioning Items.

     7.1  Obligation to Repurchase Peculiar Provisioning Items. 
During a period commencing 1 year after delivery of the first
Aircraft under the Agreement, and ending 5 years after such
delivery, Boeing will, upon receipt of Buyer's written request
and subject to the exceptions in Paragraph 7.2, Exceptions,
repurchase unused and undamaged Provisioning Items which were
peculiar to the Aircraft as compared to the delivery
configuration of Model 737-500 Aircraft previously purchased by
Buyer from Boeing, and (i) were recommended by Boeing in the
Provisioning Data as initial provisioning for the Aircraft, (ii)
were purchased by Buyer from Boeing, and (iii) are surplus to
Buyer's needs.

     7.2  Exceptions.  Boeing will not be obligated under
Paragraph 7.1, Obligation to Repurchase, to repurchase any of the
following:  (i) quantities of Provisioning Items in excess of
those quantities recommended by Boeing in the Provisioning Data
for the Aircraft, (ii) QEC Kits, Bulk Material Kits, Raw Material
Kits, Service Bulletin Kits, Standards Kits and components
thereof (except those components listed separately in the
Provisioning Data), (iii) Provisioning Items for which an Order
was received by Boeing more than 5 months after delivery of the
last Aircraft, (iv) Provisioning Items which have become obsolete
or have been replaced by other Provisioning Items as a result of
(a) Buyer's modification of the Aircraft or (b) design
improvements by Boeing or the vendor (other than Provisioning
Items which have become obsolete because of a defect in design if
such defect has not been remedied by an offer by Boeing or the
vendor to provide no charge retrofit kits or replacement parts
which correct such defect), and (v) Provisioning Items which
become excess as a result of a change in Buyer's operating
parameters, provided to Boeing pursuant to the Initial
Provisioning Meeting in Paragraph 2, which were the basis of
Boeing's initial provisioning recommendations for the Aircraft.

     7.3  Notification and Format.  Buyer will notify Boeing, in
writing, when Buyer desires to return Provisioning Items which
Buyer's review indicates are eligible for repurchase by Boeing
under the provisions of this Repurchase of Provisioning Items
paragraph.  Buyer's notification will include a detailed summary,
in part number sequence, of the Provisioning Items Buyer desires
to return.  Such summary will be in the form of listings, tapes,
diskettes or other media as may be mutually agreed between Boeing
and Buyer, and will include part number, nomenclature, purchase
order number, purchase order date and quantity to be returned. 
Within 5 business days after receipt of Buyer's notification,
Boeing will advise Buyer, in writing, when Boeing's review of
such summary will be completed.

     7.4  Review and Acceptance by Boeing.  Upon completion of
Boeing's review of any detailed summary submitted by Buyer
pursuant to Paragraph 7.3, Boeing will issue to Buyer a Material
Return Authorization (MRA) for those Provisioning Items Boeing
agrees are eligible for repurchase in accordance with this
Repurchase of Provisioning Items paragraph.  Boeing will advise
Buyer of the reason that any spare part included in Buyer's
detailed summary is not eligible for return.  Boeing's MRA will
state the date by which Provisioning Items listed in the MRA must
be redelivered to Boeing and Buyer will arrange for shipment of
such Provisioning Items accordingly.

     7.5  Price and Payment.  The price of each Provisioning Item
repurchased by Boeing pursuant to this Repurchase of Provisioning
Items paragraph will be an amount equal to 100% of the original
invoice price thereof.  In the case of Provisioning Items
manufactured by a vendor which were purchased pursuant to
Paragraph 4, Purchase from Boeing of Spare Parts as Initial
Provisioning for the Aircraft, hereof the repurchase price will
not include Boeing's 12% handling charge.  Boeing will pay the
repurchase price by issuing a credit memorandum in favor of Buyer
which may be applied against amounts due Boeing for the purchase
of aircraft, Spare Parts, services or data.

     7.6  Delivery of Provisioning Items. Provisioning Items
repurchased by Boeing pursuant to this Repurchase of Provisioning
Items paragraph will be delivered to Boeing F.O.B. at its Seattle
Distribution Center, or such other destination as Boeing may
reasonably designate.  Buyer will pay the freight charges for the
shipment from Buyer to Boeing of any such Provisioning Items.

8.   Obsolete Spare Parts and Surplus Provisioning Items - Title
and Risk of Loss.

     Title to and risk of loss of any obsolete or unusable Spare
Parts returned to Boeing pursuant to Paragraph 6, Substitution
for Obsolete Spare Parts, will pass to Boeing upon delivery
thereof to Boeing.  Title to and risk of loss of any Spare Part
substituted for an obsolete or unusable Spare Part pursuant to
Paragraph 6, Substitution for Obsolete Spare Parts, will pass to
Buyer upon delivery thereof to Buyer.  Title to and risk of loss
of any Provisioning Item repurchased by Boeing pursuant to
Paragraph 7, Repurchase of Provisioning Items,  will pass to
Boeing upon delivery thereof to Boeing.  With respect to the
obsolete or unusable Spare Parts which may be returned to Boeing
and the Spare Parts substituted therefor, pursuant to
Paragraph 6, and the Provisioning Items which may be repurchased
by Boeing, pursuant to Paragraph 7, the party which has risk of
loss of any such Spare Part or Provisioning Item will have the
responsibility of providing any insurance coverage for it desired
by such party.

9.   Supplier Support.

     Boeing has entered, or anticipates entering, into product
support agreements with suppliers (Boeing Suppliers) of major
system components manufactured by such Suppliers to be installed
on the Aircraft (Supplier Components).  Such product support
agreements commit, or are expected to commit, the Boeing
Suppliers to provide to Buyer and/or the Buyer's designees
support services with respect to the Supplier Components which
can be reasonably expected to be required during the course of
normal operation.  This support includes but is not limited to
shelf-stock of certain spare parts, emergency spare parts, timely
delivery of spare parts, and technical data related to the
Supplier Components.  Copies of such product support agreements
will be provided to Buyer on or about April 1, 1997 in Boeing
Document D6-56115, Volumes 1 and 2.  In the event Buyer has used
due diligence in attempting to resolve any difficulty arising in
normal business transactions between Buyer and a Boeing Supplier
with respect to product support for a Supplier Component
manufactured by such Supplier and if such difficulty remains
unresolved, Boeing will, if requested by Buyer, assist Buyer in
resolving such difficulty.  Assistance will be provided by the
Spares Supplier Support and Data Management Organization within
the Boeing Buyer Services Division.

10.  Termination of Agreement for Excusable Delay.

     In the event of termination of the Agreement with respect to
any Aircraft

     (i)    pursuant to Article 6.2 of the Agreement, or

     (ii)   pursuant to Article 6.3 of the Agreement

such termination will, if Buyer so requests by written notice
received by Boeing within 15 days after such termination, also
discharge and terminate all obligations and liabilities of the
parties as to any Spare Parts which Buyer had ordered pursuant to
the Provisions of this letter as initial provisioning for such
Aircraft and which are undelivered on the date Boeing receives
such written notice.
