Retired Continental Airlines executive to give speech about carrier’s L.A. heyday

A retired Continental Airlines executive will speak later this month at the Flight Path Museum in Westchester about his memories of the carrier’s former Los Angeles headquarters.

John Clayton, Continental’s former public relations director, is expected to talk about how the airline catered to celebrities and politicians at Los Angeles International Airport. He will bring photographs from his personal collection. Continental was based near LAX in the 1960s and 1970s before moving to Houston in 1983. It is now part of United Airlines and based in Chicago.

The event will take place at 10 a.m. on Sept. 24 at the Flight Path Museum, 6661 W. Imperial Highway in Westchester. Admission and parking are free.

The event is part of an ongoing speakers series.
