had elected to receive shares of Northwest Airlines Corporation ("Northwest")
common stock (the "Share Electing Partners"), other than 1992 Air GP, were
permitted to retain both the shares of the Class A Stock directly owned by
them and one-fourth of the shares attributable to their respective interests
in Air Partners, while receiving 75% of the number of shares of Northwest
Common Stock they would otherwise have received under the Investment
Agreement, with 1992 Air GP receiving both Northwest common stock and cash,
and all other partners in Air Partners receiving cash.

     Pursuant to the Fourth Amendment to the Partnership Agreement of Air

allowed to receive a distribution from Air Partners of the shares of Class A 
Stock held by Air Partners that they were permitted to retain under the
Amendment.  Each Share Electing Partner directed that those shares be
transferred directly to CAI Partners as a contribution of capital, and such
transfers, involving an aggregate of 624,134 shares of the Class A Stock, were
effected on November 20, 1998.
     
          Except as set forth in this paragraph (c), to the best of the
knowledge of each of the Reporting Persons, none of the persons named in

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

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

     The Amendment
 
     On November 20, 1998, the parties to the Investment Agreement entered
into the Amendment, the purpose of which was to permit Air Partners to
transfer 624,134 shares of the Class A Stock to CAI Partners prior to the
acquisition of Air Partners by Northwest and to permit 1992 Air, Inc. and
Bonderman Family to retain the shares of the Class A Stock that they held
outside of Air Partners and to impose certain restrictions on the voting and
disposition of the shares of the Class A Stock retained by CAI Partners, Air,
Inc. and Bonderman Family (the "Retained Shares").  

     Pursuant to the Amendment, CAI Partners, the partners of CAI
Partners, Air, Inc. and Bonderman Family (the "CAI Partners") agreed not to
sell, encumber or otherwise dispose of any or all of the Retained Shares
unless prior to such transfer such shares are converted into shares of the
Class B Common Stock of the Issuer (the "Class B Stock"), except that such
conversion shall not be required if Northwest, Northwest Airlines Holdings
Corporation and Air Partners (collectively, the "Northwest Entities") shall
have disposed of shares of the Issuer's common stock or converted shares of
the Class A Stock into shares of the Class B Stock such that the Northwest
Entities beneficially owned shares of the Issuer's common stock representing,
in the aggregate, less than 20% of the Total Voting Power of the Issuer (as
that term is defined in the Governance Agreement among Northwest, Northwest
Airlines Holdings Corporation and the Issuer effective as of January 25, 1998,
as amended) (the "Threshold").  If the Northwest Entities are required
pursuant to a Government Order (as defined in the Amendment) to dispose of
shares of the Issuer's common stock so that they beneficially own shares of
the Issuer's common stock representing less than 20% of the Total Voting Power
and, in order to do so, elect to convert all of the shares of the Class A
Stock beneficially owned by them into shares of the Class B Stock, then the
Threshold shall be reduced to 7.5%.  

     In addition, the CAI Parties have, pursuant to the Amendment, agreed
(i) not to grant any proxies or powers of attorney (other than to Northwest or
Holdings or as otherwise provided by the Amendment), enter into any voting
trust or other voting arrangement with respect to the Retained Shares, (ii) 
until the Governance Agreement is not in effect and the Supplemental Period,
as defined therein, has terminated, to vote or caused to be voted the Retained
Shares as directed by Northwest in connection with any fundamental corporate

members, managers, employees or agents (individually a "Covered Person") shall
be liable to the Partnership, any Partner, or any other person for any act or
omission taken or suffered by such Covered Person in good faith and in the
belief that such act or omission is in or is not opposed to the best interests
of the Partnership, provided, that such act or omission is not fraud, willful
misconduct, or a knowing material violation of this Agreement by such Covered
Person.  No Covered Person shall be liable to the Partnership, any Partner, or
any other person for any action taken by any other Partner, nor shall any
Covered Person be liable to the Partnership, any other Partner, or any other
person for any action of any employee or agent of the Covered Person,
provided, such action is within the scope of the purposes of the Partnership
and the Covered Person seeking exculpation satisfies the parameters of the
preceding sentence.

 (b)  To the fullest extent allowed or permitted under any provision of
applicable law, including, without limitation, the Act, the Partnership shall
indemnify, defend, and hold harmless each Partner, its affiliates and their
respective shareholders, officers, directors, partners, members, managers,
employees or agents (individually an "Indemnitee") to the extent of the
Partnership Assets, from and against any losses, expenses, judgments, fines,
settlements, and damages incurred by the Partnership or such Indemnitee
arising out of any claim based upon acts (including, without limitation,
negligent acts) performed or omitted to be performed by the Partnership or
such Indemnitee in connection with the business of the Partnership, including,
without limitation, costs, expenses, and attorneys' fees expended in the
settlement or defense of any such claim.  All decisions of the Partnership
concerning any action allowed or permitted under applicable law concerning the
indemnity of any person or entity by the Partnership shall be made as
determined by the General Partner.

Partner shall mean the Partner (a) designated as the "tax matters partner"
within the meaning of Section 6231(a)(7) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986,
as amended from time to time (or any corresponding provisions of succeeding
law, collectively the "Code") and (b) whose responsibilities as Tax Matters
Partner include, where appropriate, commencing on behalf of the Partnership
certain judicial proceedings regarding Partnership federal income tax items
and informing all Partners of any administrative or judicial proceeding
involving federal income taxes.  In exercising its responsibilities as Tax
Matters Partner, the General Partner shall have the final decision making
authority with respect to all federal income tax matters involving the
Partnership.  Any direct out-of-pocket expense incurred by the Tax Matters
Partner in carrying out its responsibilities and duties under this Agreement

 (a)  Each of the Partners agrees to contribute (the "Initial Capital
Contributions") to the capital of the Partnership on the Effective Date the
right to receive, from Air Partners, the number of Shares set forth on such
Partner's signature page attached hereto.

 (b)  The Partners may, but shall not be obligated to, make additional
capital contributions ("Additional Capital Contributions") pro rata in
accordance with each such Partner's Percentage Interest at such times, in such
manner, and in such amounts as all of the Partners may subsequently agree.

 Section 3.02.  Capital Accounts.  The amount of a Partner's capital
account ("Capital Account") in the Partnership shall be determined by:

 (a)  crediting to such account (i) all contributions to the Partnership
made by or on behalf of such Partner or his or its predecessor in interest,
including the fair market value of any property contributed (less any
liabilities assumed by the Partnership or to which any property may be
subject) and (ii) all gains and income of the Partnership allocated to such
Partner or his or its predecessor in interest; and

 (b)  debiting to such account (i) all withdrawals, including property
distributed, from the Partnership made by or on behalf of such Partner or his
or its predecessor in interest (less any liabilities assumed by the Partner or
to which any property may be subject) at the value of such property on the
books of the Partnership and (ii) all losses and deductions of the Partnership
allocated to such Partner or his or its predecessor in interest.

 Section 3.03.  Limited Liability of Limited Partners.  Notwithstanding
anything contained in this Agreement to the contrary, the liability of each
Limited Partner for any of the debts, losses, or obligations of the
Partnership shall be limited to the amount of the sum of such Limited
Partner's capital contributions pursuant to Section 3.01 hereof.  Accordingly,
no Limited Partner shall be obligated to provide additional capital to the
Partnership or its creditors by way of contribution, loan, or otherwise beyond
the amount of the capital contributions required of such Limited Partner
pursuant to Section 3.01 hereof.  Except as provided in the Act, no Limited
Partner shall have any personal liability whatsoever, whether to the
Partnership or any third party, for the debts of the Partnership or any of its
losses beyond the amount of the Limited Partner's capital contributions.

 Section 3.04.  Treatment of Capital Contributions.  Except as provided
in this Agreement to the contrary, no Partner shall be entitled to interest on
his or its contributions to the capital of the Partnership nor shall any
Partner be entitled to demand the return of all or any part of such
contributions to the capital of the Partnership.

 Section 3.05.  Benefits of Agreement.  Nothing in this Agreement, and,
without limiting the generality of the foregoing, in this Article III,
expressed or implied, is intended or shall be construed to give to any
creditor of the Partnership or to any creditor of any Partner or any other
person or entity whatsoever, other than the Partners and the Partnership, any
legal or equitable right, remedy, or claim under or in respect of this
Agreement or any covenant, condition, or provision herein contained, and such
provisions are and shall be held to be for the sole and exclusive benefit of
the Partners and the Partnership.

                                ARTICLE IV

            ACCOUNTING, ALLOCATIONS, AND CURRENT DISTRIBUTIONS

 Section 4.01.  Percentage Interests; Indirect Shares.  For all purposes
hereof, each Partner shall initially have the percentage interest in the
Partnership (collectively the "Percentage Interests" and individually a
"Percentage Interest") set forth on such Partner's signature page attached
hereto, and shall be credited with a number of "Indirect Shares" equal to the
number set forth on such Partner's signature page attached hereto.  At any
time a Partner receives a distribution of Shares pursuant to Section 4.05
hereof, such Partner's Indirect Shares shall be reduced by the number of
Shares distributed, and the Percentage Interests of each of the Partners shall
be revised to equal, for a particular Partner, the ratio, expressed as a
percentage, of such Partner's Indirect Shares to all Partners' Indirect
Shares.

 Section 4.02  Tax Status, Reports, and Allocations.

 (a)  Notwithstanding any provision contained in this Agreement to the
contrary, solely for federal income tax purposes, each of the Partners hereby
recognizes that the Partnership will be classified as a partnership for
federal income tax purposes and therefore, will be subject to all provisions
of Subchapter K of the Code; provided however, that the filing of United
States Partnership Returns of Income shall not be construed to extend the
purposes of the Partnership or expand the obligations or liabilities of the
Partners.

 (b)  The General Partner or, at its discretion, an accountant
("Accountant") selected by the General Partner, shall prepare or cause to be
prepared all tax returns and statements, if any, that must be filed on behalf
of the Partnership with any taxing authority and shall timely file such
returns or statements.

 (c)  Except as provided for in Section 4.05(c) hereof, for accounting
and federal and (if any) state income tax purposes, all income, deductions,
credits, gains, and losses shall be allocated to the Partners pro rata in
accordance with their respective Percentage Interests.



 (d)  The General Partner shall have full authority to cause the
Partnership to act in compliance with the Code and the regulations thereunder. 
All elections, decisions, and other matters concerning the allocation of
profits, gains, and losses among the Partners as well as other accounting
procedures not specifically and expressly provided for by the terms of this
Agreement, shall be determined, in good faith, by the General Partner.

 Section 4.03.  Accounting.

 (a)  The fiscal year of the Partnership shall end on the last day of
December of each year.

 (b)  The books of account of the Partnership shall be kept and
maintained at all times at the principal place of business of the Partnership
or at such other place or places approved by the General Partner.  The books
of account shall be maintained according to federal income tax principles
using the method of accounting chosen by the General Partner, and will be
consistently applied, and shall show all items of income and expense.

 (c)  The General Partner shall cause a balance sheet of the Partnership
dated as of the end of the fiscal year and a related statement of income or
loss for the Partnership for such fiscal year to be prepared by the Accountant
and furnished, at the expense of the Partnership, to each of the Partners on
an annual basis, within ninety (90) days after the close of each fiscal year.

 (d)  Each Partner shall have the right at all reasonable times during
usual business hours to audit, examine, and make copies of or extracts from
the books of account of the Partnership.  Such right may be exercised through
any agent or employee of such Partner designated by him or it or by an
independent certified public accountant designated by such Partner.  Each
Partner shall bear all expenses incurred in any examination made on behalf of
such Partner.

 Section 4.04.  Bank Accounts.  Funds of the Partnership shall be
deposited in a Partnership account or accounts in the bank or banks as
selected by the General Partner.  Withdrawals from bank accounts shall only be
made by the General Partner or such other parties as may be approved by the
General Partner.

 Section 4.05.  Current Distributions to Partners.  

 (a)  Except as provided in Section 6.05 in connection with the
termination and liquidation of the Partnership, the General Partner shall
distribute funds at such times and in such amounts as it may determine, in its
sole discretion, except that such funds shall be distributed by the General
Partner to the Partners pro rata in accordance with their respective
Percentage Interests at the time of the distribution.  In determining the
amount of funds to distribute pursuant to this Section 4.05, the General
Partner may consider such factors as the need to allocate funds to any
reserves for Partnership contingencies or any other Partnership purposes that
the General Partner deems necessary or appropriate.

 (b)  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this
Agreement, any Limited Partner may demand to receive from the General Partner,
at any time, a non-pro rata distribution of Shares from the Partnership, not
to exceed his remaining Indirect Shares, in either complete or partial
redemption of such Partner's interest in the Partnership, by specifying, in a
notice to the General Partner, the number of Shares such Partner desires to
receive from the Partnership.

 (c)  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this
Agreement, any Limited Partner may request that the General Partner sell the
Indirect Shares allocated to such Partner, and the Partnership shall sell such
shares, allocate the income resulting therefrom to such Partner, and
distribute the net proceeds of such sale to such Partner.

 Section 4.06.  Changes in Percentage Interests.  If a Partner's
Percentage Interest changes during any fiscal year, the allocations to be made
pursuant to this Agreement shall be made in accordance with Section 706 of the
Code, using any convention permitted by Section 706 of the Code and the
Regulations promulgated thereunder and selected by the General Partner so as
to equitably effectuate the allocations of this Article IV.

                                 ARTICLE V

                                ASSIGNMENT

 Section 5.01.  Prohibited Transfers.  No Partner may sell, transfer,
assign, mortgage, hypothecate, or otherwise encumber or permit or suffer any
encumbrance of all or any part of his or its interest in the Partnership.  Any
attempt so to transfer or encumber any such interest shall be null and void,
ab initio.

                                ARTICLE VI

           WITHDRAWAL, DISSOLUTION, TERMINATION, AND LIQUIDATION

 Section 6.01.  Withdrawal.  Except as provided in Section 4.05(b), no
Limited Partner shall at any time retire or withdraw from the Partnership, and
no General Partner shall at any time retire or withdraw from the Partnership. 
Retirement or withdrawal by any Partner in contravention of this Section 6.01
shall subject such Partner to liability for all damages caused any other
Partner (other than a Partner who is, at the time of such withdrawal, in
default under this Agreement) by such retirement or withdrawal and the
consequential dissolution of the Partnership.

 Section 6.02.  Dissolution of the Partnership.  The Partnership shall
be dissolved upon the occurrence of any of the following:



 (a)  The withdrawal, as defined in the Act, of a General Partner,
unless within ninety (90) days after such event, all of the Limited Partners
agree to appoint in writing a successor General Partner, as of the date of the
withdrawal of the General Partner, and agree to reconstitute the Partnership
and to continue the business of the Partnership, and such successor General
Partner agrees in writing to accept such election;

 (b)  Upon the election of the General Partner following the
disposition, not including an exchange, of substantially all of the assets of
the Partnership (except under circumstances where all or a portion of the
purchase price is payable after the closing of the sale or other disposition);

 (c)  December 31, 2010, unless extended by the consent of all Partners;
or

 (d)  Subject to any obligations of the Partnership, when Approved by
the Partners.

Nothing contained in this Section 6.02 is intended to grant to any Partner the
right to dissolve the Partnership at will (by retirement, resignation,
withdrawal, or otherwise) or to exonerate any Partner from liability to the
Partnership and the remaining Partners if he or it dissolves the Partnership
at will.

 Section 6.03.   Continuation and Reconstitution of Partnership.  If the
Partnership is continued as provided in Section 6.02(a), then, as of the date
of withdrawal, the General Partner with respect to which an event of
withdrawal under Section 6.02 has occurred (or his or its estate or successor
in interest) (the "Withdrawing General Partner") shall have none of the powers
of a General Partner under the Agreement or applicable law and shall have only
the rights and powers of an assignee of a Partner hereunder to share in any
Partnership profits, losses, gains, and distributions in accordance with his
or its Percentage Interest and shall have no other rights or powers of a
Partner hereunder; provided however, that the Percentage Interest and Indirect
Shares of any Withdrawing General Partner shall be subject to reallocation
under Section 4.01 hereof.

 Section 6.04.  Death, etc. of a Limited Partner.  The death,
disability, withdrawal, termination (in the case of a Limited Partner that is
a partnership or a trust), dissolution (in the case of a Limited Partner that
is a corporation), retirement, or adjudication as a bankrupt of a Limited
Partner (the "Withdrawing Limited Partner") shall not dissolve the
Partnership, but, the rights of such Limited Partner to share in the profits
and losses of the Partnership and to receive distributions of Partnership
funds shall, upon the happening of such an event, pass to the Limited
Partner's estate, legal representative, or successors in interest, as the case
may be, subject to this Agreement, and the Partnership shall continue as a
limited partnership; provided that, such estate, legal representative, or
successors shall be only an assignee to such interest and shall not be
admitted as a substitute Partner of the Partnership unless such admission is
Approved by the Partners.


 Section 6.05.  Termination and Liquidation of the Partnership.

 (a)  Upon dissolution of the Partnership unless continued pursuant to
Section 6.02, the Partnership shall be terminated as rapidly as business
circumstances will permit.  At the direction of the General Partner, or a
Partner Approved by the Partners if the dissolution of the Partnership is
caused by the withdrawal of the General Partner (the General Partner or the
other Partner, as the case may be, being herein called the "Terminating
Partner"), a full accounting of the assets and liabilities of the Partnership
shall be taken and a statement of the Partnership Assets and a statement of
each Partner's Capital Account shall be furnished to all Partners as soon as
is reasonably practicable.  The Terminating Partner shall take such action as
is necessary so that the Partnership's business shall be terminated, its
liabilities discharged, and its assets distributed as hereinafter described. 
The Terminating Partner may sell all of the Partnership Assets or distribute
the Partnership Assets in kind.  A reasonable period of time shall be allowed
for the orderly termination of the Partnership to minimize the normal losses
of a liquidation process.

 (b)  After the payment of all expenses of liquidation and of all debts
and liabilities of the Partnership in such order or priority as provided by
law (including any debts or liabilities to Partners, who shall be treated as
secured or unsecured creditors, as may be the case, to the extent permitted by
law, for sums loaned to the Partnership, if any, as distinguished from capital
contributions) and after all resulting items of Partnership income, gain,
credit, loss, or deduction are credited or debited to the Capital Accounts of
the Partners in accordance with Articles III and IV hereof, all remaining
Partnership Assets shall then be distributed among the Partners in accordance
with the positive balances of their respective Capital Accounts.  Upon
termination, a Partner may not demand and receive cash in return for such
Partner's capital contributions and no Partner shall have any obligation to
restore any deficit that may then exist in that Partner's Capital Account. 
Distribution on termination may be made by the distribution to each Partner of
an undivided interest in any asset of the Partnership that has not been sold
at the time of termination of the Partnership.

 Section 6.06.  General Partners Not Personally Liable.  No General
Partner nor any affiliate of any General Partner shall be personally liable
for the return of the Capital Contributions of any Partner, and such return
shall be made solely from available Partnership Assets, if any, and each
Limited Partner hereby waives any and all claims it may have against any
General Partner or any such affiliate in this regard.

 Section 6.07.  Provisions Cumulative.  All provisions of this Agreement
relating to the dissolution, liquidation, and termination of the Partnership
shall be cumulative to the extent not inconsistent with other provisions
herein; that is, the exercise or use of one of the provisions hereof shall not
preclude the exercise or use of any other provision of this Agreement to the
extent not inconsistent therewith.

                                ARTICLE VII

                                  GENERAL

 Section 7.01.  Competing Business.  Notwithstanding anything to the
contrary contained in or inferable from this Agreement, the Act, or any other
statute or principle of law, neither the Partners nor any of their
shareholders, directors, officers, employees, partners, agents, family
members, or affiliates (each a "Partner Affiliate") shall be prohibited or
restricted in any way from investing in or conducting, either directly or
indirectly, and may invest in and/or conduct, either directly or indirectly,
businesses of any nature whatsoever, including the ownership and operation of
businesses or properties similar to or in the same geographical area as those
held by the Partnership.  Any investment in or conduct of any such businesses
by a Partner or any Partner Affiliate shall not give rise to any claim for an
accounting by the other Partners or the Partnership or any right to claim any
interest therein or the profits therefrom.

 Section 7.02.  Notice.

 (a)  All notices, demands, or requests provided for or permitted to be
given pursuant to this Agreement must be in writing.

 (b)  All notices, demands, and requests to be sent to a Partner
pursuant to this Agreement shall be deemed to have been properly given or
served if: (i) personally delivered, (ii) deposited prepaid for next day
delivery by Federal Express, or other similar overnight courier services,
addressed to such Partner, (iii) deposited in the United States mail,
addressed to such Partner, prepaid and registered or certified with return
receipt requested, or (iv) transmitted via telecopier or other similar device
to the attention of such Partner.

 (c)  All notices, demands, and requests so given shall be deemed
received: (i) when personally delivered, (ii) twenty-four (24) hours after
being deposited for next day delivery with an overnight courier, (iii)
forty-eight (48) hours after being deposited in the United States mail, or
(iv) twelve (12) hours after being telecopied or otherwise transmitted and
receipt has been confirmed.

 (d)  The Partners shall have the right from time to time, and at any
time during the term of this Agreement, to change their respective addresses
and each shall have the right to specify as his or its address any other
address within the United States of America by giving to the other parties at
least thirty (30) days written notice thereof, in the manner prescribed in
Section 7.02(b); provided however, that to be effective, any such notice must
be actually received (as evidenced by a return receipt).

 (e)  All distributions to any Partner shall be made at the address at
which notices are sent unless otherwise specified in writing by any such
Partner.


 Section 7.03.  Amendments.  Amendments and supplements may be made to
or restatements made of this Agreement only upon the Approval of the Partners.

 Section 7.04.  Powers of Attorney.  Each Limited Partner hereby
constitutes and appoints each General Partner, with full power of
substitution, as his or its true and lawful attorney-in-fact and empowers and
authorizes such attorney, in the name, place, and stead of such Limited
Partner, to make, execute, sign, swear to, acknowledge, and file in all
necessary or appropriate places all documents (and all amendments or
supplements to or restatements of such documents necessitated by valid
amendments to or actions permitted under this Agreement) relating to the
Partnership and its activities, including, without limitation: (a) this
Agreement and any amendments thereto approved as provided in this Agreement,
(b) the Certificate of Limited Partnership and any amendments thereto, under
the laws of the State of Texas or in any other state or jurisdiction in which
such filing is deemed advisable by such General Partner, (c) any applications,
forms, certificates, reports, or other documents, or amendments thereto which
may be requested or required by any federal, state, or local governmental
agency, securities exchange, securities association, self-regulatory
organization, or similar institution and which are deemed necessary or
advisable by such General Partner, (d) any other instrument which may be
required to be filed or recorded in any state or county or by any governmental
agency, or which such General Partner deems advisable to file or record,
including, without limitation, certificates of assumed name and documents to
qualify foreign limited partnerships in other jurisdictions, (e) any documents
which may be required to effect the continuation of the Partnership, the
withdrawal of any Partner, the purchase of the interest in the Partnership of
any ex-spouse of a Partner, or the dissolution and termination of the
Partnership, (f) making certain elections contained in the Code or state law
governing taxation of limited partnerships, and (g) performing any and all
other ministerial duties or functions necessary for the conduct of the
business of the Partnership.  Each Limited Partner hereby ratifies, confirms,
and adopts as his own, all actions that may be taken by such attorney-in-fact
pursuant to this Section 7.04.  Each Limited Partner acknowledges that this
Agreement permits certain amendments to be made and certain other actions to
be taken or omitted to be taken by less than all of the Partners if approved
in accordance with the provisions hereof.  By their execution hereof, each
Limited Partner also grants each General Partner a power of attorney to
execute any and all documents necessary to reflect any action that is approved
in accordance with the provisions hereof.  This power of attorney is coupled
with an interest and shall continue notwithstanding the subsequent incapacity
or death of the Limited Partner.  Each Limited Partner shall execute and
deliver to the General Partner an executed and appropriately notarized power
of attorney in such form consistent with the provisions of this Section 7.04
as the General Partner may request.

 Section 7.05.  GOVERNING LAWS AND VENUE.  THIS AGREEMENT IS MADE IN
FORT WORTH, TARRANT COUNTY, TEXAS, AND THE RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS OF THE
PARTNERS HEREUNDER SHALL BE INTERPRETED, CONSTRUED, AND ENFORCED IN ACCORDANCE
WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF TEXAS.  ALL MATTERS LITIGATED BY, AMONG, OR
BETWEEN ANY OF THE PARTNERS THAT INVOLVE THIS AGREEMENT, THE RELATIONSHIP OF
THE PARTNERS, OR ANY RELATED DOCUMENTS OR MATTERS HEREUNDER SHALL BE BROUGHT
ONLY IN FORT WORTH, TARRANT COUNTY, TEXAS.

 Section 7.06.  Rule of Construction.  The general rule of construction
for interpreting a contract, which provides that the provisions of a contract
should be construed against the party preparing the contract, is waived by the
parties.  Each party acknowledges that he or it was represented by separate
legal counsel in this matter who participated in the preparation of this
Agreement or he or it had the opportunity to retain counsel to participate in
the preparation of this Agreement but chose not to do so.

 Section 7.07.  Entire Agreement.  This Agreement, including all
exhibits to this Agreement and, if any, exhibits to such exhibits, contains
the entire agreement among the parties relative to the matters contained in
this Agreement.

 Section 7.08.  Waiver.  No consent or waiver, express or implied, by
any Partner to or for any breach or default by any other Partner in the
performance by such other Partner of his or its obligations under this
Agreement shall be deemed or construed to be a consent or waiver to or of any
other breach or default in the performance by such other Partner of the same
or any other obligations of such other Partner under this Agreement.  Failure
on the part of any Partner to complain of any act or failure to act of any of
the other Partners or to declare any of the other Partners in default,
regardless of how long such failure continues, shall not constitute a waiver
by such Partner of his or its rights hereunder.

 Section 7.09.  Severability.  If any provision of this Agreement or the
application thereof to any person or circumstance shall be invalid or
unenforceable to any extent, the remainder of this Agreement and the
application of such provisions to other persons or circumstances shall not be
affected thereby, and the intent of this Agreement shall be enforced to the
greatest extent permitted by law.

 Section 7.10.  Binding Agreement.  Subject to the restrictions on
transfers and encumbrances set forth in this Agreement, this Agreement shall
inure to the benefit of and be binding upon the undersigned Partners and their
respective legal representatives, successors, and assigns.  Whenever, in this
Agreement, a reference to any party or Partner is made, such reference shall
be deemed to include a reference to the legal representatives, successors, and
assigns of such party or Partner.

 Section 7.11.  Tense and Gender.  Unless the context clearly indicates
otherwise, the singular shall include the plural and vice versa.  Whenever the
masculine, feminine, or neuter gender is used inappropriately in this
Agreement, this Agreement shall be read as if the appropriate gender was used.

 Section 7.12.  Captions.  Captions are included solely for convenience
of reference and if there is any conflict between captions and the text of
this Agreement, the text shall control.


 Section 7.13.  Counterparts.  This Agreement may be executed in
multiple counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original for all
purposes and all of which when taken together shall constitute a single
counterpart instrument.  Executed signature pages to any counterpart
instrument may be detached and affixed to a single counterpart, which single
counterpart with multiple executed signature pages affixed thereto constitutes
the original counterpart instrument.  All of these counterpart pages shall be
read as though one and they shall have the same force and effect as if all of
the parties had executed a single signature page.

                             FOURTH AMENDMENT
                                  TO THE
                           AMENDED AND RESTATED
                       LIMITED PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT
                                    OF
                            AIR PARTNERS, L.P.

 This Fourth Amendment ("Amendment") to the Amended and Restated Limited
Partnership Agreement of Air Partners, L.P. is entered into effective as of
the  19th day of November, 1998 (the "Fourth Amendment Effective Date") by and
among 1992 Air GP, a Texas general partnership ("1992 Air") as the general
partner, Air II General, Inc., a Texas corporation ("Air II") as withdrawing
general partner, and each person executing a counterpart Limited Partner
Signature Page as the limited partners (including Air Saipan, Inc. ("Saipan")
as a new Limited Partner).

                                 RECITALS

 A.   Air Partners, L.P. (the "Partnership") was formed pursuant to that
certain Limited Partnership Agreement of the Partnership dated as of August
19, 1992 (the "Original Agreement").  The Original Agreement was amended and
restated in its entirety pursuant to that certain Amended and Restated Limited
Partnership Agreement of the Partnership (the "Restated Agreement").  The
Restated Agreement was amended by that certain First Amendment to the Restated
Agreement dated as of July 25, 1995 (the "First Amendment"), that certain
Second Amendment to the Restated Agreement dated as
 of August 7, 1995 (the
"Second Amendment"), and that certain Third Amendment to the Restated
Agreement dated as of May 22, 1997 (the "Third Amendment").  The Restated
Agreement as amended by the First Amendment, the Second Amendment, and the
Third Amendment is referred to herein as the "Current Agreement".

 B.   The Partners desire to reflect certain transfers and certain other
amendments described herein relating to the transactions contemplated under
and to be carried out in accordance with that certain Investment Agreement (as
amended by Amendment No. 1, the "NW Investment Agreement") dated January 25,
1998 as executed by the partners of the Partnership and certain other parties
and pursuant to that certain Amendment No. 2 to the Investment Agreement
("Amendment No. 2") to be dated on or about November 18, 1998 to be executed
by the partners of the Partnership and certain other parties (such
transactions, the "NW Transaction"), as described herein.

 Now therefore, for and in consideration of the mutual promises
contained herein, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt
and sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, the undersigned hereby agree
as follows:

 1.   All capitalized terms used and not otherwise defined herein shall
have the meanings given them in the Current Agreement.

 2.   Air II has, by separate agreement, contributed its entire general
partner interest in the Partnership to 1992 Air in return for a partnership
interest in 1992 Air, and desires to withdraw from the Partnership as a
General Partner.  Each of the parties hereto, by their execution hereof,
hereby (i) consents to such transfer and withdrawal, (ii) waives any right
under the Current Agreement to declare such transfer and withdrawal as a
breach of any covenant, warranty, or provision of the Current Agreement, (iii)
agrees and acknowledges that 1992 Air shall from this date forward be the sole
General Partner of the Partnership and that all references to the General
Partner in the Current Agreement shall refer solely to 1992 Air and that 1992
Air shall continue as Managing General Partner, and (iv) agrees to continue
the Partnership following such transfer and withdrawal and to continue the
business of the Partnership.

 3.   Pursuant to Section 6.02(a)(i) of the Current Agreement, following
the withdrawal of Air II as a General Partner, 1992 Air hereby agrees (i) to
continue and reconstitute the Partnership without dissolution thereof, (ii) to
continue the business of the Partnership without interruption, and (iii) to
continue as Managing General Partner.

 4.   1992 Air desires to have a portion of its general partner interest
in the Partnership (taking into account the increase in such interest
attributable to Air II's newly-contributed general partner interest), equal to
Saipan's indirect interest in the Partnership held through 1992 Air, converted
to a Limited Partner interest in the Partnership, but for Saipan to otherwise
to enjoy the same economic benefits as currently exist with respect to such
interest (the "Converted Interest").  The amount of such interest (on a post
promote basis) is set forth as part of the chart on Exhibit A attached hereto
and made a part hereof.  Each of the parties hereto, by their execution
hereof, hereby consents to such conversion.

 5.   Following the actions described in 4 above, 1992 Air will,
contemporaneously, by separate agreement, distribute the Converted Interest to
Saipan, including all attributes appurtenant thereto (including that portion
of 1992 Air's Capital Account related to the Converted Interest).  Following
such distribution, Saipan desires to be admitted as a Limited Partner of the
Partnership pursuant to Section 5.04(a)(ii) of the Current Agreement.  Each of
the parties hereto, by their execution hereof, hereby consents to such
distribution and the admission of Saipan as a Limited Partner of the
Partnership.

 6.   The terms "General Partner" and "General Partners" shall
hereinafter refer solely to 1992 Air and shall not include Air II.  The terms
"Limited Partner" and "Limited Partners" shall hereinafter include Saipan. 
The terms "Partner" and "Partners" shall hereinafter include Saipan and shall
not include Air II.

 7.   Prior to the consummation of the NW Transaction, the Share
Electing Partners (as defined in the NW Investment Agreement) will be entitled
to receive a distribution, in partial liquidation of their interests in the
Partnership, of the number of A Shares as set forth on Exhibit B attached
hereto and made a part hereof.  Each of the Share Electing Partners, by their
execution of this Amendment, hereby request that the Partnership transfer its
rights to receive such A Shares to 1998 CAI Partners, L.P. ("CAIP") as a
contribution of capital of CAIP by and on behalf of such Share Electing
Partner, and further request that, upon distribution, the A Shares be
distributed directly to CAIP.  Each Share Electing Partner hereby accepts the
transfer, to CAIP, of its right to receive A Shares in partial liquidation of
its interests in the Partnership, and each of the Share Electing Partners
hereby grants a power of attorney to 1992 Air to take any and all actions and
to enter into such documents and agreements on its behalf to accomplish such
distribution including, but not limited to, the execution of Amendment No. 2
on behalf of such Share Electing Partner including the proxy, voting,
transfer, and other restrictions or requirements placed on CAIP and the Share
Electing Partners, and such power of attorney is irrevocable and is coupled
with an interest, shall continue notwithstanding the subsequent incapacity or
death of the Share Electing Partner granting such power, and shall be in
addition to the Powers (defined herein) and any powers of attorney granted by
such Share Electing Partner under paragraph 8 hereof.

 8.   Each of the Partners has, by a prior Letter of Instruction (each,
a "Letter") and by a prior Power of Attorney (each, a "Power") consented to
and approved of, and authorized 1992 Air to act as its attorney-in-fact with
respect to the NW Investment Agreement.  Each of the Partners, by their
execution hereof, hereby grants a further and continuing power of attorney to
1992 Air to act on behalf of the Partnership and such Partner to carry out and
complete the NW Transaction in accordance with the terms set forth in the NW
Investment Agreement as amended by Amendment No. 2, to execute Amendment No.
2 on such Partner's behalf and the documents, certificates, cross-receipts,
instruments, and other agreements described in the NW Investment Agreement as
amended by Amendment No. 2, and to confirm, if required, the representations
and warranties required of such party under the NW Investment Agreement (or to
reaffirm such representations and warranties as part of Amendment No. 2 or the
closing of the NW Transaction), and to make such changes to the documents or
the transaction as 1992 Air deems necessary or advisable; provided that, such
power of attorney does not permit 1992 Air to materially expand the
representations and warranties of such party or to materially reduce the
economic benefits to accrue to such party from the NW Transaction or to
materially expand the obligations of such party associated with the NW
Transaction without such party's prior written consent; provided that, each
Share Electing Partner has consented to the actions to be taken under
paragraph 7 hereof (including the proxy, voting, transfer, and other
restrictions or requirements placed on CAIP and the Share Electing Partners
under Amendment No. 2) and the resulting adjustments made under Amendment No.
2.  The foregoing power of attorney is irrevocable and is coupled with an
interest, and shall continue notwithstanding the subsequent incapacity or
death of the party granting such power.  The Letters and Powers shall continue
in full force and effect.

 9.   As provided in the Letters, each Partner hereby agrees that solely
for the purpose of determining the promote consideration owed to the General
Partner from each of the Partners resulting from the NW Transaction, the
actions taken and transfers made in accordance with the NW Investment
Agreement as amended by Amendment No. 2 shall be deemed as if (i) such actions
and transfers were made on January 25, 1998, (ii) such actions and transfers
were accomplished through a sale of the Securities held by the Partnership
(including those to be distributed to CAIP under paragraph 7) to the
transferee parties under and as provided for in the NW Investment Agreement
(without regard to Amendment No. 2), in return for the consideration provided
for in the NW Investment Agreement (net of the amount of the Expense Fund
described in paragraph 10 below), and (iii) such consideration was then
distributed (in the form of stock or cash as requested by each Partner in its
Letter) to the Partners as provided for in Section 4.09(e) of the Current
Agreement.  Each Partner's expected consideration net of the promote
consideration and, for the Share Electing Partners, reduced by the pro rata
share of A Share distributions to be made to CAIP under paragraph 7 hereof
(denominated in cash or shares of stock as elected by such Partner under the
NW Investment Agreement) shall be reported to the transferee parties under the
NW Investment Agreement as part of the closing of the NW Transaction and shall
be used to determine the consideration to be paid to each Partner from its
transfer of its interest in the Partnership.  Following the calculation of the
deemed distribution as provided for in (iii) above, 1992 Air shall determine
each Partner's "Post-Promote Percentage Interest" which, for a particular
Partner, shall be determined as of January 25, 1998, and shall be the ratio of
such Partner's deemed distribution determined in (iii) above (assuming the
transaction had been closed under the NW Investment Agreement) over the total
deemed distributions of all of the Partners.  The Post-Promote Percentage
Interests are set forth on Exhibit A attached hereto.  Except as specifically
provided for in this Amendment, the amount of consideration to be received by
a Partner (denominated in shares and/or an amount of cash) shall not be
further adjusted between January 25, 1998 and the time of the closing of the
NW Transaction.

 10.  Each of the Partners, by their execution hereof, acknowledges and
agrees that under instructions by 1992 Air, approximately $3 million in cash
will be paid to 1992 Air on behalf of the Partners of the Partnership in order
to fund the costs and expenses of the NW Transaction (the "Expense Fund"). 
Each of the Partners, by their execution hereof, hereby appoints 1992 Air to
act as their agent in settling such costs and expenses, and authorizes 1992
Air to retain any or all of such funds not immediately needed, if any, as a
reserve against future expenses.  Upon a determination by 1992 Air that any
portion of such funds are in excess of the amounts needed to fund future costs
and expenses, 1992 Air shall return such excess amounts to each of the
Partners, pro rata based on their Post-Promote Percentage Interests.

 11.  Each of the Partners hereby agrees to bear its share of all
expenses associated with the NW Transaction and the continued operation of the
Partnership through the closing (including, but not limited to, all fees and
expenses associated with the operation thereof up until the closing of the NW
Transaction, and all costs thereafter to close out the Partners' interests
therein such as accounting and tax preparation costs and any costs of
litigation, but not any costs or expenses incurred by Air Partners, L.P. from
its operations after the transfers are made at the closing of the NW
Transaction, which shall be borne by the transferee owners of the Partnership)
pro rata in the ratio of their Post-Promote Percentage Interests, which
expenses shall include such Partner's share of the repayment of the warrant
exercise loan principal and interest as provided for, in accordance with, and
with the consideration designated in, the NW Investment Agreement.  1992 Air,
as agent, is hereby authorized to first use the Expense Fund to satisfy such
expenses to the extent possible.  If the Expense Fund is insufficient to cover
all such expenses, each Partner hereby agrees to recontribute its pro rata
share, by Post-Promote Percentage Interests, of any additional funds needed to
satisfy such expenses; provided that, no Partner shall be obligated to
recontribute or fund collectively pursuant to this paragraph 11 and paragraph
12 (i) more than his or its pro rata share, by Post-Promote Percentage
Interests, of any expenses or obligations incurred or (ii) on a cumulative
basis, an amount in excess of the amount of consideration received by such
Partner in connection with the closing of the NW Transaction (valued as of the
date of the closing of the NW Transaction) plus, for Share Electing Partners,
the pro rata value for such Share Electing Partner of the A Share distribution
to be made pursuant to the right to receive such distribution contributed by
such Share Electing Partner to CAIP under paragraph 7 (valued on the date of
receipt of such distribution).  The foregoing in no way affects or limits the
agreements entered into by each of the Partners under the NW Investment
Agreement.

 12.  Notwithstanding the transfer of such Partner's interest in the
Partnership under the NW Transaction, each of the Partners hereby agrees that
the indemnity and exculpation provisions of the Current Agreement, including
Sections 2.04 and 2.05 thereof, shall continue to be of full force and effect,
with respect to, and shall continue to cover, the actions (and inactions)
taken (and to be taken) by 1992 Air GP, its officers, directors, partners,
employees, and agents in connection with (i) the operations of the Partnership
through the closing of the NW Transaction (including actions taken thereafter
to wrap up the Partners' interests in the Partnership such as the payment of
previously incurred expenses and the preparation of financial and tax
documents and reports), and (ii) the NW Transaction, and that each Partner
shall bear its pro rata share, by Post-Promote Percentage Interests, of all
costs and expenses incurred in accordance therewith; provided that, the
limitations and exclusions set forth in the Current Agreement regarding
indemnification and exculpation, including Sections 2.04 and 2.05 thereof,
shall continue in effect; and provided further that, no Partner shall be
obligated to recontribute or fund collectively pursuant to paragraph 11 and
this paragraph 12 (i) more than his or its pro rata share, by Post-Promote
Percentage Interests, of any expenses or obligations incurred or (ii) on a
cumulative basis, an amount in excess of the amount of consideration received
by such Partner in connection with the closing of the NW Transaction (valued
as of the date of the closing of the NW Transaction) plus, for Share Electing
Partners, the pro rata value for such Share Electing Partner of the A Share
distribution to be made pursuant to the right to receive such distribution
contributed by such Share Electing Partner to CAIP under paragraph 7 (valued
on the date of receipt of such distribution).  The foregoing in no way affects
or limits the agreements entered into by each of the Partners under the NW
Investment Agreement.

 13.  Any interest payments to be received by the Partners under Section
2.5 of the NW Investment Agreement shall be divided among the Partners pro
rata based on their Post-Promote Percentage Interests, and shall be added to
any other consideration to be paid to such Partner determined under paragraph
9 hereof.

 14.  Each Partner hereby ratifies the NW Investment Agreement as
provided in its Letter, and agrees to continue to be bound by it and all
actions contemplated by it as provided in such Partner's Letter and by all
actions taken in such Partner's name that was or is properly taken in
accordance with the Power and the power of attorney granted under paragraph 8
hereof.  Each Partner further ratifies Amendment No. 2 and agrees to be bound
by it and all actions completed by it and by all actions taken in such
Partner's name that is properly taken in accordance with the power of attorney
granted under paragraph 8 hereof.

 15.  Except as amended hereby, the Current Agreement shall remain in
full force and effect, and each person executing this Amendment hereby
acknowledges the same; provided that, following the consummation of the NW
Transaction, each Partner agrees to and requests to withdraw completely from,
and no longer be a Partner of, the Partnership.  The provisions herein
concerning powers of attorney, expense sharing and recontribution, and
indemnities and exculpations shall continue notwithstanding the sale of the
Partners' interests as part of the NW Transaction, as between the current
Partners and the General Partner; provided that, none of such provisions shall
be deemed to impose any obligations on the new partners to be admitted upon
the transfer of all of the current Partners' interests as part of the NW
Transaction.

 16.  This Amendment may be executed in multiple counterparts, each of
which shall be deemed an original for all purposes and all of which when taken
together shall constitute a single counterpart instrument.  All of the
counterpart pages shall be read as though one and shall have the same force
and effect as if all of the parties had executed a single signature page.

          Section 7.  (a)  Section 3.2 of the Investment Agreement is
hereby amended by deleting the introductory paragraph and substituting
therefor the following:

            3.2  Representations and Warranties of the Partnership and
     the Partners.  The Partnership and each Partner, severally and not
     jointly, represents and warrants to Parent and Holdco Sub as of
     January 25, 1998 (except for Section 3.2(d)), and as of the Closing
     Date as follows:    

          (b)  Section 3.2(d) of the Investment Agreement is hereby
amended by deleting Section 3.2(d) and substituting therefor the
following:

           (d)  Ownership of Shares of Company Common Stock; No Other
     Operations.  Following the Pre-Closing Transfer, the Partnership is
     the direct and record owner of (i) 7,678,522 shares of Company
     Class A Common Stock and (ii) no shares of Class B Common Stock,
     par value $.01 per share, of the Company ( Company Class B Common
     Stock  and, together with the Company Class A Common Stock, the
      Company Common Stock ).  Except as set forth in the immediately
     preceding sentence, (i) the Partnership does not own or have the
     right to acquire, whether presently exercisable or at any time in
     the future, any shares of Company Common Stock or any securities
     convertible into or exercisable or exchangeable for shares of
     Company Common Stock or any other equity securities of the Company
     and (ii) the Partnership does not own any other assets or conduct
     any other business.  Except as permitted by this Agreement, no
     Person has the right to acquire, and neither CAIPar, the
     Partnership nor any of the Partners is a party to any contract,
     understanding, commitment, arrangement or other agreement to sell,
     transfer or otherwise dispose of, any shares of Company Common
     Stock owned by or issuable to CAIPar, the Partnership or to such
     Partners.  To the best knowledge of the Partnership and the
     Partners, based solely on inquiry of appropriate officers of the
     Company, as of December 31, 1997, the shares of Company Class A
     Common Stock described in the first sentence of this Section
     3.2(d), together with the 624,134 shares of Company Class A Common
     Stock to be transferred to CAIPar in the Pre-Closing Transfer,
     constituted 13.9% of the outstanding shares of Company Common Stock
     and 50.4% of the Voting Power represented by the outstanding shares
     of Company Common Stock.  To the best knowledge of the Partnership
     and the Partners, based solely on inquiry of appropriate officers
     of the Company, after giving effect to the issuance of shares of
     Company Common Stock pursuant to all securities described in the
     second sentence of Section 3.3(h), such shares would have
     constituted 9.6% of the outstanding shares of Company Common Stock
     and 43.9% of the Fully Diluted Voting Power at December 31, 1997. 
     The Partnership has, and at the Closing will have, good and valid
     title to the shares of Company Class A Common Stock described in
     the first sentence of this Section 3.2(d) free and clear of any
     Liens or Restrictions, except those arising under this Agreement. 
      Except as set forth herein, the Partnership has sole voting power,
     and sole power of disposition, with respect to all shares of
     Company Class A Common Stock described in the first sentence of
     this 3.2(d) and there are no restrictions on the Partnership's
     ability to transfer such shares. 

          Section 8.  The Investment Agreement is hereby amended by
adding a new Section 3.5 thereto as follows:

            3.5  Representations and Warranties of the Partnership. 
     None of the shares of Company Class A Common Stock held by the
     Partnership after the Pre-Closing Transfer has a lower per share
     tax basis than any of the Retained Shares. 

          Section 9.  The Investment Agreement is hereby amended by
adding a new Section 3.6 thereto as follows:

           3.6  Representations and Warranties of CAIPar.  CAIPar
     represents and warrants to Parent and Holdco Sub as of the Closing
     Date as follows:

          (a)  Organization, Standing and Power of CAIPar.  CAIPar is
     duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the
     laws of the State of Texas and has the requisite partnership power
     and authority to carry on its business as now being conducted. 
     CAIPar is duly qualified or licensed to do business and is in good
     standing in each jurisdiction in which the nature of its business
     or the ownership or leasing of its properties makes such
     qualification or licensing necessary, other than in such
     jurisdictions where the failure to be so qualified or licensed
     (individually or in the aggregate) could not reasonably be expected
     to have a material adverse effect with respect to CAIPar.

          (b)  CAIPar Authorization.  The execution, delivery and
     performance by CAIPar of this Agreement and the consummation by
     CAIPar of the transactions contemplated hereby have been duly
     authorized by all necessary partnership action.  This Agreement has
     been duly executed and delivered by CAIPar and constitutes a valid
     and binding agreement of CAIPar, enforceable against CAIPar in
     accordance with its terms (subject to applicable bankruptcy,
     insolvency, reorganization, moratorium, fraudulent transfer and
     other similar laws affecting creditors' rights generally from time
     to time in effect and to general principles of equity, including
     concepts of materiality, reasonableness, good faith and fair
     dealing, regardless of whether in a proceeding at equity or at
     law).

          (c)  CAIPar Capitalization.  The authorized and issued equity
     capital of CAIPar consists solely of the general partnership
     interests and limited partnership interests described on Schedule
     3.6(c).  The Share Electing Partners own, and at the Closing Date
     the Share Electing Partners will own, of record and beneficially,
     collectively 100% of the general and limited partnership interests
     of CAIPar, free and clear of all Liens and Restrictions (other than
     any Liens or Restrictions imposed pursuant to the terms of this
     Agreement or disclosed on Schedule 3.6(c)).

          (d)  Ownership of Shares.  Following the Pre-Closing Transfer,
     CAIPar is the direct and record owner of 624,134 shares of Company
     Class A Common Stock, and has good and valid title to such shares,
     free and clear of any Liens or Restrictions, except those arising
     under this Agreement.  Except as set forth herein, CAIPar has sole
     voting power, and sole power of disposition, with respect to all
     such 624,134 shares of Company Class A Common Stock and there are
     no restrictions on CAIPar s ability to transfer such shares.

          (e)   No Conflict.  No permit, authorization, consent or
     approval of, any Governmental Authority is necessary for the
     execution of this Agreement by CAIPar or the consummation by CAIPar
     of the transactions contemplated hereby, including the Pre-Closing
     Transfer, except for such filings the failure of which to be made,
     individually or in the aggregate, could not reasonably be expected
     to have a material adverse effect on CAIPar or to prevent or
     materially delay the consummation of the transactions contemplated
     hereby.  Neither the execution and delivery of this Agreement by
     CAIPar nor the consummation by CAIPar of the transactions
     contemplated hereby nor compliance by CAIPar with any of the
     provisions hereof conflicts with or results in any breach of any
     applicable trust or other organizational documents applicable to
     CAIPar.

          Section 10.  (a)  Section 4.2 of the Investment Agreement is
hereby amended by deleting Section 4.2(b) and substituting therefor the
following:

           (b)  Restriction on Transfer of Company Shares, Proxies and
     Non-Interference; Restriction on Withdrawal.  (i)  Pre-Closing. 
     Prior to the Closing, neither the Partnership, CAIPar nor any
     Partner or Transferor shall, directly or indirectly, without the
     prior written consent of Parent:  (A) except pursuant to or as
     expressly contemplated hereby, offer for sale, sell (including
     short sales), transfer, tender, pledge, encumber, assign or
     otherwise dispose of (including by gift), or enter into any
     contract, option or other arrangement or understanding (including
     any profit-sharing arrangement) with respect to or consent to the
     offer for sale, sale, transfer, tender, pledge, encumbrance,
     assignment or other disposition of, (1) any or all of the shares of
     Company Class A Common Stock owned by it (or, in the case of any
     Partner, allocable to it) or (2) in the case of any Partner, all or
     any portion of its Partnership Interest, or any interest in any
     thereof; (B) except as expressly contemplated hereby, grant any
     proxies or powers of attorney (other than to CAIPar, a Partner or
     Transferor), deposit any shares of Company Class A Common Stock
     into a voting trust or enter into any other voting arrangement with
     respect to any shares of Company Class A Common Stock; (C) except
     as otherwise provided in this Agreement, take any action that would
     make any representation or warranty of the Partnership, CAIPar or
     any Partner or Transferor contained herein untrue or incorrect or
     have the effect of preventing or disabling the Partnership, CAIPar
     or any Partner or Transferor from performing its obligations under
     this Agreement; or (D) except for the Pre-Closing Transfer, in the
     case of the Partners, withdraw any of its Allocable Company Class
     A Shares from the Partnership or elect to have any of its Allocable
     Company Class A Shares distributed to it; or commit or agree to
     take any of the foregoing actions; provided, however, that in the
     event that, (x) a third party commences a bona fide tender offer
     for shares of Company Class A Common Stock, (y) neither the
     Partnership, CAIPar nor any Partner or Transferor is in breach in
     any material respect of its representations and warranties or its
     obligations (including its obligation to effect the Closing) under
     this Agreement and (z) all of the other conditions to Parent's and
     Holdco Sub's obligations to close the Transactions set forth in
     Sections 5.1 and 5.2 have been satisfied, unless Parent and Holdco
     Sub cause the Closing to occur within five Business Days following
     receipt of written notice from the Partnership, CAIPar or any of
     the Transferors of their intention to tender their shares, the
     Partnership, CAIPar and the Transferors will be permitted to tender
     their shares of Company Class A Common Stock in such tender offer,
     unless such Closing shall not have occurred as a result of facts or
     occurrences not within the control of Parent and Holdco Sub
     (including the failure of any of the conditions set forth in
     Section 5.1 or Section 5.3 to be satisfied).  

               (ii)      Post-Closing.  Subsequent to the Closing, until
     such time as neither the Governance Agreement nor Sections 2
     through 14 of the Supplemental Agreement are in effect, neither
     CAIPar, any Share Electing Partner nor any Retaining Transferor
     shall, directly or indirectly, without the prior written consent of
     Parent: (A) except as expressly contemplated hereby, offer for
     sale, sell (including short sales), transfer, tender, pledge,
     encumber, assign or otherwise dispose of (including by gift), or
     enter into any contract, option or other arrangement or
     understanding (including any profit-sharing arrangement) with
     respect to or consent to the offer for sale, sale, transfer,
     tender, pledge, encumbrance, assignment or other disposition of,
     any or all of the Retained Shares owned by it (except that CAIPar
     may transfer shares of Company Class A Common Stock held by it to
     any Share Electing Partner) unless prior to such transfer (or, in
     the case of a pledge, before any foreclosure or any other transfer
     of ownership resulting from such pledge) such shares are converted
     into shares of Company Class B Common Stock, except that such
     conversion shall not be required if Parent, Holdco Sub and the
     Partnership shall have disposed of shares of Company Common Stock
     or converted shares of Company Class A Common Stock into shares of
     Company Class B Common Stock such that they Beneficially Own (as
     defined in the Governance Agreement) shares of Company Common Stock
     representing, in the aggregate, less than 20% of the Total Voting
     Power (as defined in the Governance Agreement) (the  Threshold );
     provided, that if, as a result of a Government Order, Parent,
     Holdco Sub and the Partnership are required to dispose of shares of
     Company Common Stock or take such other action so that they
     Beneficially Own, in the aggregate, shares of Company Common Stock
     representing less than 20% of the Total Voting Power and, in order
     to do so, Parent, Holdco Sub and the Partnership elect to convert
     all shares of Company Class A Common Stock Beneficially Owned by
     them into shares of Company Class B Common Stock, the Threshold
     shall be reduced to 7.5% or (B) except as expressly contemplated
     hereby, grant any proxies or powers of attorney (other than to
     Parent or Holdco Sub), deposit any Retained Shares into a voting
     trust or enter into any other voting arrangement with respect to
     any Retained Shares; provided that CAIPar and any Share Electing
     Partner or Retaining Transferor shall give prompt notice to Holdco
     Sub in accordance with Section 7.4 of this Agreement of any action
     taken pursuant to this Section 4.2(b)(ii)(A) or (B) and shall
     certify as to the compliance of such action with this Section
     4.2(b)(ii).  Any calculations made pursuant to the foregoing shall
     not take into effect any shares of Company Common Stock issued
     after the date hereof other than upon the exercise of securities
     described in the second sentence of Section 3.3(h). 

          (b)  Section 4.2 of the Investment Agreement is hereby amended
by deleting Section 4.2(c) thereof and substituting therefor the
following:

           (c)  Voting.  (i)  Pre-Closing.  The Partnership, CAIPar,
     each Transferor and each Partner (with respect to its right to
     direct the vote of the shares of Company Class A Common Stock owned
     by the Partnership in accordance with the terms of the Partnership
     Agreement) hereby agree that, during the time this Agreement is in
     effect prior to the Closing, at any meeting of the stockholders of
     the Company (or at any adjournments or postponements thereof),
     however called, or in any other circumstances upon which the
     Partnership's, CAIPar s or such Transferor's vote, consent or other
     approval is sought or otherwise eligible to be given, the
     Partnership, CAIPar each Transferor and such Partners shall vote
     (or cause to be voted) the shares of Company Class A Common Stock
     owned by the Partnership, CAIPar, such Partner or such Transferor,
     as the case may be, (A) against any action or agreement that would
     result in a breach in any material respect of any covenant,
     representation or warranty or any other obligation or agreement of
     the Partnership, CAIPar or the Partners or such Transferor under
     this Agreement; and (B) except as otherwise agreed to in writing in
     advance by Parent, against the following actions:  (1) any Business
     Combination (other than a Business Combination with Parent or its
     affiliates); and (2) (v) any change in the majority of the board of
     directors of the Company; (w) any material change in the present
     capitalization of the Company or any amendment of the Company's
     Certificate of Incorporation or By-laws; (x) any other material
     change in the Company's corporate structure or business; (y) any
     other action which is intended, or could reasonably be expected, to
     (I) prevent, (II) delay or postpone or (III) impede, frustrate or
     interfere with (in the case of this clause (III), in a manner that
     could reasonably be expected to substantially deprive Parent and
     Holdco Sub of the material benefits of any of) the Transactions or
     the entry by the Company and Northwest Airlines, Inc. into an
     Operating Alliance or their execution of an Alliance Agreement, or
     (z) except as otherwise permitted in this Agreement, any action
     that would cause the Fully Diluted Voting Power represented by the
     shares of Company Class A Common Stock held by the Partnership,
     CAIPar and the Transferors to be less than that percentage of the
     Fully Diluted Voting Power of the Company represented by such
     shares on the date of this Agreement other than grants by the
     Company to its employees in accordance with its past practices of
     options and other stock-based compensation.  Neither the
     Partnership, CAIPar nor any Partner or Transferor shall enter into
     any agreement or understanding with any Person or entity prior to
     the termination of this Agreement to vote or give instructions
     after such termination in a manner inconsistent with clauses (A) or
     (B) of the preceding sentence.

          (ii)  Post-Closing.  CAIPar and each Share Electing Partner
     and each Retaining Transferor hereby agree that, until such time as
     neither the Governance Agreement nor Sections 2 through 14 of the
     Supplemental Agreement are in effect at any meeting of the
     stockholders of the Company (or at any adjournments or
     postponements thereof), however called, or in any other
     circumstances upon which CAIPar, such Share Electing Partner or
     Retaining Transferor's vote, consent or other approval is sought or
     otherwise eligible to be given (A) with respect to (x) any vote on
     a merger, reorganization, share exchange, consolidation, business
     combination, recapitalization, liquidation, dissolution or similar
     transaction involving the Company, any sale of all or substantially
     all of the Company s assets or any issuance of Voting Securities
     that would represent in excess of 20% of the Voting Power prior to
     such issuance, including any of the foregoing involving Holdco Sub
     or the Parent or (y) any amendment to the Company s amended and
     restated certificate of incorporation or by-laws that would
     materially and adversely affect Holdco Sub (including through its
     effect on the Alliance Agreement and the rights of the Voting
     Securities Beneficially Owned (as such terms are defined in the
     Governance Agreement) by Holdco Sub), CAIPar, such Share Electing
     Partner or Retaining Transferor shall vote (or cause to be voted)
     any Retained Shares owned by it as directed by Holdco Sub and
     (B) with respect to any election of directors of the Company in
     respect of which any Person other than the Company is soliciting
     proxies, CAIPar, such Share Electing Partner or Retaining
     Transferor shall vote or cause all such shares to be voted as
     recommended by the Board of Directors, but only if Holdco Sub votes
     the shares of Company Class A Common Stock Beneficially Owned by it
     in such election as recommended by the Board of Directors. 

          (c)  Section 4.2 of the Investment Agreement is hereby amended
by deleting Section 4.2(d) thereof and substituting therefor the
following:

           (d)  Proxy.  (i)  Pre-Closing.  The Partnership (and, to the
     extent provided by the Partnership Agreement, the Partners), CAIPar
     and each Retaining Transferor hereby grant to, and appoint, Robert
     L. Friedman and any other designee of Parent, individually, its
     irrevocable proxy and attorney-in-fact (with full power of
     substitution) to vote the shares of Company Class A Common Stock
     owned by the Partnership, CAIPar or such Transferor as indicated
     in, and solely for the purposes of, Section 4.2(c)(i).  The
     Partnership (and the Partners), CAIPar and each Transferor intend
     this proxy to be irrevocable and coupled with an interest and will
     take such further action and execute such other instruments as may
     be necessary to effectuate the intent of this proxy and hereby
     revoke any proxy previously granted by it with respect to the
     matters set forth in Section 4.2(c) with respect to the shares of
     Company Class A Common Stock owned by the Partnership. 
     Notwithstanding the foregoing, Parent agrees that the proxy granted
     by this Section 4.2(d)(i) shall be deemed to be revoked upon the
     termination of this Agreement in accordance with its terms.

          (ii)  Post-Closing.  CAIPar, each Share Electing Partner and
     each Retaining Transferor hereby grants to, and appoints, John H.
     Dasburg, Mickey A. Foret and Douglas M. Steenland any other
     designee of Holdco Sub from time to time, individually, its
     irrevocable proxy and attorney-in-fact (with full power of
     substitution) to vote any Retained Shares owned by such CAIPar,
     Share Electing Partner or Retaining Transferor as directed by
     Holdco Sub (in the case of Section 4.2(c)(ii)(A)) and as
     recommended by the Board of Directors of the Company (in the case
     of Section 4.2(c)(ii) (B)) as indicated in, and solely for the
     purposes of, Section 4.2(c)(ii).  CAIPar, each Share Electing
     Partner and each Retaining Transferor intend this proxy to be
     irrevocable and coupled with an interest and will take such further
     action and execute such other instruments as may be necessary to
     effectuate the intent of this proxy and hereby revoke any proxy
     previously granted by it with respect to any Retained Shares owned
     by CAIPar, such Share Electing Partner and such Retaining
     Transferor with respect to the matters set forth in Section
     4.2(c)(ii).   Notwithstanding the foregoing, Holdco Sub agrees that
     the proxy granted by this Section 4.2(d)(ii) shall be deemed to be
     revoked upon such time as neither the Governance Agreement nor
     Sections 2 through 14 of the Supplemental Agreement are in effect.

          (d)  Section 4.2 of the Investment Agreement is hereby amended
by deleting Section 4.2(f) thereof and substituting therefor the
following: 

           (f)  No Conversions.  Prior to the Closing, the Partnership,
     CAIPar and each Transferor agree not to convert any shares of
     Company Class A Common Stock into shares of Company Class B Common
     Stock.  Following the Closing, CAIPar, the Share Electing Partners
     and the Retaining Transferors agree not to convert any shares of
     Company Class A Common Stock into Company Class B Common Stock
     unless such conversion occurs immediately prior to the transfer of
     such shares to a third party as permitted by Section 4.2(b). 

          (e)  Section 4.2(g) of the Investment Agreement is hereby
amended by deleting the  words  the Transferors  in the seventh line
thereof and substituting therefor the words  Transferor III .

          (f)  Section 4.2 of the Investment Agreement is hereby amended
by deleting Section 4.2(h) thereof  and substituting therefor the
following:

           (h)  Transfer of Shares of Holdco Sub Common Stock.  Until
     the earlier of (i) the date that is two years after the Closing
     Date and (ii) such time as Holdco Sub has failed to ensure that a
     Transferor II Designee is elected to the Holdco Sub Board of
     Directors when the right of Transferor II pursuant to Section
     4.1(b) (A) remains in effect, (B) has been terminated by virtue of
     a written instrument executed by Transferor II or its assignee and
     Holdco Sub in connection with an order, ruling, decision, judgment,
     consent decree or other decree of a court or Governmental Authority
     (a  Government Order ), or (C) would violate a Government Order,
     each of the Share Electing Partners agrees that it shall not,
     directly or indirectly, offer, sell, transfer, tender, pledge or
     encumber, assign or otherwise dispose of any Exchange Shares other
     than in connection with bona fide pledges of such Exchange Shares
     to secure bona fide borrowings or in connection with bona fide
     hedging transactions executed by registered broker-dealers;
     provided, however, that the Share Electing Partners shall be
     permitted to offer, sell, transfer, tender, pledge or encumber,
     assign or otherwise dispose of, during such two-year period (x) in
     the aggregate, such percentage of the aggregate number of Exchange
     Shares issued to the Share Electing Partners at the Closing as is
     equal to the percentage of the aggregate shares of Holdco Sub
     Common Stock beneficially owned by Alfred Checchi, Gary Wilson and
     Richard Blum on the Closing Date that are sold, transferred,
     assigned or otherwise actually disposed of by Alfred Checchi, Gary
     Wilson and Richard Blum in the aggregate during such two-year
     period; (y) in the event that the Offeree acquires Offered
     Securities under Section 4.1(d), in the aggregate, such percentage
     of the aggregate number of Exchange Shares issued to the Share
     Electing Partners at the Closing as is represented by the
     percentage such Offered Securities acquired by the Offeree bears to
     the total number of shares of Company Class A Common Stock the
     beneficial ownership of which is acquired by Parent and Holdco Sub
     at the Closing and (z) Exchange Shares to one or more of its
     affiliates that is directly or indirectly controlled by it. 
     Nothing in this Section 4.2(h) shall be construed as being or
     providing the sole or exclusive remedy for a breach by Parent or
     Holdco Sub of Section 4.1(b) (it being understood that a
     termination of Transferor II s right under Section 4.1(b) under the
     circumstances described in clause (ii) (B) or (C) of this Section
     4.2(h) shall not be a breach of such Section.) 

          (g)  Section 4.2 of the Investment Agreement is hereby amended
by adding a new Section 4.2(k) thereto as follows:

                (k)  If subsequent to the Closing Parent, Holdco Sub or
     their respective Affiliates purchase or otherwise acquire shares of
     Company Class A Common Stock or Company Class B Common Stock such
     that Parent, Holdco Sub and their Affiliates would, after giving
     effect to such acquisition, Beneficially Own (as such term is
     defined in the Governance Agreement) more than the Permitted
     Percentage  (as such term is defined in the Governance Agreement),
     a number of shares of Company Class A Common Stock equal to the
     number of shares of Voting Securities Beneficially Owned by such
     Persons that exceed the Permitted Percentage shall be released from
     the transfer restrictions of Section 4.2(b)(ii) of this Agreement,
     the voting restrictions of Section 4.2(c)(ii) of this Agreement and
     the proxy arrangements of Section 4.2(d)(ii) of this Agreement, in
     each case on a vote for vote basis, effective upon the consummation
     of such purchase, and Holdco Sub shall promptly notify the
     Partner s Representative of any such acquisition. 

          Section 11.  Section 7.14 of the Investment Agreement is
hereby amended by changing the heading to read  Survival  and adding at
