Continental shifts to Star Alliance

October 28, 2009|Times Staff and Wire Reports

Continental Airlines Inc. has changed teams in the battle among three large alliances of global airlines.

The airline officially switched from SkyTeam, which is led by Delta Air Lines Inc. and Air France-KLM Group, to the Star Alliance, which includes UAL Corp.'s United Airlines, US Airways Group Inc. and Lufthansa.

The move gets Continental out from under the shadow of Delta Air Lines and could mean a bigger piece of international revenue that is shared among team members.
