I've heard this rumor before. Last time I heard it was in the fall of 1996 from another CO employee. He told me that CO was indeed interested in 747-400s but no more than probably 4. Like someone else said, when the 777 came about, it made better sense.

The words "reportedly intended" means that someone heard a rumor.
I specifically discussed the 747-400 case with a VP of Continental earlier this year and he said that they never took it seriously, so I was very surprised to see this info. Thanks for clearing up that it was just a rumor.
