Continental's Confidence-Building Luncheon

Continental Airlines CEO Gordon Bethune hosted more than 400 corporate customers, travel industry leaders and frequent flyers for quickly paced luncheon at the Grand Hyatt on Monday that included a to-the-point report on the airline's post-September 11 business and security measures. Bethune told the crowd that safety is a high priority, and assured travelers of Continental's commitment to the New York area. (Continental boasts a 41-percent share of New York air travelers, with more than 300 flights operating into the city daily, despite an 18-percent schedule cut.) Among the airline's news: All of its airport President Clubs remain operational, and a new rail service now connects travelers from Penn Station directly to Newark Airport. The event was highlighted by the presentation of a check for $100,000 to the United Way of New York's Relief Fund.
