with the information you have here, there is no way to be certain these flights are overbooked. You could gain more info. by going to the Continental website, as if you are booking a flight. Select the flights you show here, and see if it will let you proceed with a reservation. (If it "prices it out" for you then at least there's availability). But that still doesn't tell you for certain it's not overbooked. Airlines generally allow 20 percent more to hold reservations than there are seats. Good luck

Many airlines will overbook because they expect a percentage of those passengers to either change their itinerary or not show up. You can go to Continental's website and see how many seats are still available for this flight. Then when you check in, you can ask whether or not the flight is overbooked.
