If Continental would have not merged with United what would they look like today?
- would they have kept CLE as a hub?
- would they have added a west coast hub?
- would there have been branding or image changes?
- where would major network growth have occurred?
- would Airbus have been in their fleet by now or soon?
- what alliance would they have remained or left SkyTeam and joined Star anyway?
- would they be doing any point to point flying?
What would have become of Continental?
