No, Continental has not decided on anything.  Continental requested
that Boeing provide two bids, one a conventional one and the other a
sole-source deal modeled on the American and Delta contracts.  They
have yet to announce a decision between the two approaches, nor for
that matter have they announced a decision to buy from Boeing at all.
