United Continental (UAL - Get Report) is the clear cut leader in the airlines space, according to legendary chartist Marc Chaikin, who sat down with TheStreet's founder and Action Alerts PLUS Portfolio Manager Jim Cramer for an exclusive one-hour webinar.

"American Airlines (AAL) has the ungainly task of integrating US Air which was legacy nightmare in terms of customer service and on time and baggage delivery," Chaikin said. "So UAL is just the clear cut leader."

United Continental shares are up 27% since the start of the year, compared to American Airlines's 25% decline.
