(Reuters) - Flight attendants with Continental Airlines Inc said they will not participate in contract talks with their peers at United Airlines, according to a report in Bloomberg.

Representatives for Continental and for Association of Flight Attendants could not be immediately reached for comment.
UAL Corp and Continental merged last week to form the world's largest carrier, called United Airlines. The airline is a unit of United Continental Holding Inc.
