United CEO hospitalized; stock slumps on heart attack report

United Continental Holdings Inc (UAL.N) said Friday its recently named chief executive, Oscar Munoz, had been hospitalized, but the airline did not confirm a report in The Wall Street Journal that he had suffered a heart attack.

Munoz's health issues are the latest setback for United, the No. 2 U.S. airline in terms of capacity. The company last month named Munoz, a former CSX Corp (CSX.N) executive, to replace Jeff Smisek as CEO amid a federal probe involving the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
