Continental Airlines says it has a labor-contract deal with its flight attendants days ahead of combining with United Airlines to form the world's biggest airline.

Continental said Thursday it reached a tentative contract agreement with the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, which represents about 9,300 flight attendants at the Houston company.

Terms were not disclosed.

Continental expects to close its deal with United this week. The new United will overtake Delta Air Lines to become the world's No. 1 carrier.

Workers for both United and Continental must figure out how to combine seniority lists.
