Continental CEO Larry Kellner visited the captain in his Denver hospital room on Tuesday. The airline did not say what the two men discussed.

The flight crew aborted their takeoff Saturday. The jet left the runway and sped about 2,000 feet across a taxiway before sliding into a ravine. Thirty-eight people on board were hurt.
