June 2010: Continental Micronesia (MCR) serves both Honolulu and Palau.

September 2010: United Airlines (UAL) and Continental Airlines (CAL) have agreed on a path to obtain a single operating certificate (SOC) from the (FAA) that will see the merged carriers retain the "legacy Continental (CAL) operating certificate and the legacy United (UAL) repair station certificate," according to (UAL) VP Corporate Safety, Security, Quality & Environment, Michael Quiello.

The information was contained in a communication from Quiello to (UAL) employees. Achieving an (SOC) "is a long-term process that will follow a series of steps in a transition plan that we will submit to the (FAA) later this month," he said. It will "be the third and final stage in the merger process," following Closing Day, when the merger is legally completed, and Customer Day One, set for sometime next spring, when the two airlines' customer service systems are expected to be able to handle passengers from either airline. It is anticipated the (SOC) will take at least a year to accomplish from the date of the closing of the merger, expected by October 1.

Although both operating certificates contain "unique" advantages, the (CAL) certificate was selected "because of its enhanced technology authorizations and close conformity to standard (FAA) language as well as other regulatory and commercial considerations," Quiello stated. (UAL)'s maintenance certificate was selected because it "enables increased maintenance capabilities, enhanced repair station authorizations and greater maintenance volume."

As part of the merger process, the Continental Micronesia (MCR) operation will be combined with Continental (CAL)'s ahead of the (UAL) - (CAL) (SOC) transition. At present, Continental Micronesia (MCR) has its own air operating certificate (AOC).

January 2011: For his crucial role in securing regulatory approval for the world's largest airline merger, United (UAL) Continental (CAL) (CEO), Jeff Smisek has been named "Person of the Year" by the editors of "Aviation Week and Space Technology." Jeff Smisek has risen from a private practice attorney to the head of Continental Airlines (CAL) and a key architect of its merger with United Airlines (UAL). Smisek's argument in favor of consolidation "was accepted by the world's regulators, and in just six months - - an unprecedented speed in mergers of this magnitude - - they approved a deal that cements the return of USA operators to the top ranks of global aviation."

August 2012: United Airlines (UAL) subsidiary, Continental Micronesia (MCR) flight attendants (CA) ratified a new labor agreement, extending the previous collective bargaining agreement through December 2014.

The flight attendants (CA) are represented by the Association of Flight Attendants (AFA). (UAL) reached a tentative agreement with the (AFA) last month.

In-flight Senior VP, Sam Risoli said, "We will now turn our attention on working with the (AFA) on a single contract that is competitive for United (UAL) and provides additional benefits for our flight attendants (CA)."

(UAL) flight attendants (CA) ratified a new four-year contract in February; flight attendants (CA) from Continental Airlines (CAL) ratified an extension of their collective bargaining agreement last month. (AFA) and United Continental (UAL)/(CAL) Holdings will launch negotiations for a joint collective bargaining agreement covering all (AFA)-represented flight attendants (CA) on August 27.

September 2013: United Airlines (UAL) has reached tentative agreements on new joint collective bargaining agreements with the International Association of Machinists (IAM) for the fleet service, passenger service and storekeeper work groups at its United (UAL), Continental (CAL), Continental Micronesia (MCR) and MileagePlus subsidiaries.

The (IAM) said the tentative agreements preserve and improve pensions, stabilize health care costs and expand job security provisions while providing immediate and retroactive wage increases for all (IAM) members at the new United Airlines (UAL), which includes former employees of Continental Airlines (CAL) and Continental Micronesia (MCR). The (IAM), which represents approximately 30,000 workers, unanimously recommended ratification of the four-year agreements. All ratification voting is expected to be completed by November 1.
