Operating Profit of $9 Million, Improvement of $164 Million Over May 2003
Company Continues to Meet DIP Covenants

CHICAGO, June 24, 2004 – UAL Corporation (OTCBB: UALAQ.OB), the holding company whose primary subsidiary is United Airlines, today filed its May Monthly Operating Report (MOR) with the United States Bankruptcy Court. The company reported earnings from operations of $9 million, which represents an improvement of approximately $164 million over May 2003. Mainline passenger unit revenue improved 7% year-over-year. Unit costs were down 15% over last year. The company reported a net loss of $93 million, including $58 million in reorganization expenses, which include non-cash items resulting from the rejection of aircraft as the company aligns its fleet with the market. UAL met the requirements of its debtor-in-possession (DIP) financing

I just noticed the 80.1% load factor, I'm by no means an expert, but that's fairly good, correct?

That's still $3 million every day. Still a bit troubling IMO.

$58 million of that where expenses related to reorganization, any company under reorganization has these expenses.

So technically only $1.16 million a day, compared to how much a year ago? These things don't just change overnight. Can't forget the 29 days of non-stop severe weather in the Midwest.

If I'm not mistaken, they have until June 30th to emerge from bankruptcy. In this case, they need lots of luck.

A load factor of 80% is great when you charge the passenger more than what it costs to fly him/her...which UA didn't...especially on TED flights.

The marketing geniuses at UA are actually putting downward pressure on fares in Ted markets even though their competition enjoys a 10-20% cost advantage over them.

But hey, they can tell their employees how great they are doing in load factor!

I could have a 100% load factor if I gave away tickets for free. Load factor is only part of the story and can't be taken as an independant statistic.

They were recently given another extension. Now they have until July 30.

Wow though!
An improvement of USD164 million. Way to go UA! A major step in the right direction. Maybe things are beginning to look a little brighter.

UAL was granted the extension to 7/31, which means they can submit their plan without other competing plans being considered during that time. Expect UAL to request another 1-month extension in July. CFO Jake Brace said that the company will not reemerge until later this year, with or without the loan guarantees.

Re: May, it's also important to note the $61mm DIP loan repayment, on top of the reorg. expenses. The $58mm spent in reorg. expenses will help UAL down the road once they reemerge from Ch. 11, in the form of lower lease rates, etc. UAL has had to pay a lot to break leases, contracts, etc. while in Ch. 11.

Given the VERY high cost of fuel in May, it's impressive that UAL posted only a $93mm loss.

Anyone have May figures for other carriers?
