Continental Airlines was a major American airline that merged with United Airlines.  The origin of Continental Airlines dates to the 1934 formation of Varney Speed Lines which operated airmail and passenger services in the American Southwest. Headquartered in Downtown Houston, Texas. Continental Airlines is one of America's major airlines and is a member of the Star Alliance. Continental has three hubs from which it operates its services; these are located at Newark Liberty International Airport, Cleveland Hopkins International Airport and George Bush Intercontinental Airport.  The carrier was renamed Continental Air Lines in 1937 and expanded its domestic U.S. network in the 1960s with jet aircraft. Continental was a minority owner of ExpressJet Airlines, which operated under the 'Continental Express' trade name but was a separately managed and public company. At the time of its integration with United Airlines, Continental had its headquarters at 77 west Wacker, Chicago. It ranks at 4th position in the airline of the United States. Continental Airlines received Silver Quality First Award in the year 2010 and also Bronze Quality First Award in 2010. Continental Airlines previously had its headquarters in the Continental Center I building in the Cullen Center complex in Downtown Houston. On October 31, 1937, Continental moved its headquarters to Stapleton Airport in Denver, Colorado, Robert F. Six arranged to have the headquarters moved to Denver from El Paso, Texas because Robert F. Six believed that the airline should have its headquarters in a large city with a potential base of customers. Continental Airlines is having flights to all the major destinations with approximately 150 national and more than 190 International destinations. Continental Airlines had a two-class service configuration, First/Business First and Economy Class, for aircraft in the mainline fleets.
