United Continental Holdings Inc.’s directors as recently as Friday were at an impasse on whether to appoint an interim chief executive officer or start seeking a new one to replace ailing Oscar Munoz, a person familiar with the situation told Bloomberg.

Munoz suffered a heart attack Thursday after little more than a month on the job. The board talked about possible courses of action on Friday but was stymied by a lack of information about the condition of the 56-year-old executive, said the person, who was briefed on the deliberation and asked not to be named discussing private information. It was unclear on Sunday whether the board had reached a conclusion.

United spokeswoman Megan McCarthy declined to comment on Sunday, ahead of a week in which the airline is planned to report the first earnings under Munoz’s helm. The Chicago-based airline confirmed Friday the CEO had been hospitalized but didn’t give a reason or say whether anyone had temporarily assumed his duties. The company, in its statement, said the airline would “continue to operate normally.” Bloomberg Reports
