We have an update on the Continental and United Airlines merger deal. Continental pilots Wednesday voiced their opinions about how the merger will impact them.

The Continental pilots are worried about how seniority will be determined in the merger, and want a new collective bargaining agreement to be put in place quickly. They also want a stake in the new company.

Continental and United agreed to merge last month. The airlines are still awaiting word from federal regulators looking into the merger. Once that happens, Continental will become United and the airline's headquarters will move from Houston to Chicago.
