Item 8.01.
Other Events.

Continental Airlines, Inc. (the “Company”) is filing this Current Report on Form 8-K (this “Report”) to reflect certain required accounting adjustments and reclassifications described below with respect to the financial information contained in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2008 (the “2008 Form 10-K”) filed on February 18, 2009.  Neither this Report nor the Exhibits hereto reflect any events occurring after February 18, 2009 or modify or update the disclosures in the 2008 Form 10-K that may have been affected by subsequent events.  Accordingly, this Report should be read in conjunction with the 2008 Form 10-K and the Company’s filings made with the Securities and Exchange Commission subsequent to the filing of the 2008 Form 10-K, including any amendments to those filings.

As previously disclosed in the 2008 Form 10-K, in May 2008 the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued Staff Position No. APB 14-1, “Accounting for Convertible Debt Instruments That May Be Settled in Cash upon Conversion (Including Partial Cash Settlement)” (“FSP APB 14-1”), which clarifies the accounting for convertible debt instruments that may be settled in cash (including partial cash settlement) upon conversion.  FSP APB 14-1 requires issuers to account separately for the liability and equity components of certain convertible debt instruments in a manner that reflects the issuer’s nonconvertible debt (unsecured debt) borrowing rate when interest cost is recognized.  FSP APB 14-1 requires bifurcation of a component of the debt, classification of that component in equity and the accretion of the resulting discount on the debt to be recognized as part of interest expense in the issuers’ consolidated statement of operations.  FSP APB 14-1 is effective for the Company as of January 1, 2009 and early adoption was not permitted.  However, once adopted, FSP APB 14-1 requires retrospective application to the terms of instruments as they existed for all periods presented.  The adoption of FSP APB 14-1 affects the accounting for the Company’s 5% Convertible Notes issued in 2003 and due in 2023.  The retrospective application of this FSP affects years 2003 through 2008.

The Company has adjusted in Exhibits 99.1, 99.2, 99.3 and 99.4 to this Report the following financial information contained in the 2008 Form 10-K to reflect (i) the Company’s retrospective application of FSP APB 14-1 and (ii) certain reclassifications related to fuel and related taxes on flights operated for the Company by other operators under capacity purchase agreements to conform with the presentation adopted in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2009:
 
·  
Selected Financial Data;
·  
Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations;
·  
Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk; and
·
