Just a quick headline flash over the Dow Jones newswire:

UAL Aug Oper Profit $80M

Net loss of $30 mil, w/out reorganization expenses a net profit of $56 mil. Not too bad, as long as they're still improving it's a good sign.

Summer is the most profitable time for airlines. Such results in February and we'd have to say that UA has recovered. Even in August, it's encouraging.

Seeing how they improved by over $90 million from last year, even though fuel expenses have skyrocketed, indicates that they are on track to emerge from bankruptcy, and that all that cost-cutting has actually achieved something.

Not to be gloom and doom about it.... but these sort of numbers are a drop in the bucket, and it really is only meaningful if they can sustain it.

Even then.... it's a tiny, tiny profit for a turnover this size

With the demise of DH, UA's IAD operation is about to become more profitable.

I think the focus here is UAL turned a profit, small or large, it's still a significant step in turning the company around. With all the UA bashing, why can't you just say..."hey good for them"..??

With fuel prices higher than last year, I think this is a significant improvement and shows the painful cuts are working. The employees of UAL should be proud of their sacrifices and hard work. I hope it continues in other quarters.

Net loss of $30 million. That averages out to $360 million over a year.

Doesn't sound so hot to me.



Tired of airline bankruptcies....EA/PA/TW and finally DL.

You forget, without the bankruptcy charges, which btw they won't HAVE for the next year, they would have made a $54 mil NET profit. Which averages to a $648 mil NET profit over a year. See, I can spin numbers too.  Wink

Dear JetDelta, Your employer will be deliriously happy if they could limit their losses to $360M a year. Might want to think about that.

Cheers!

The topic is United Airlines, not "a southern carrier".

Go back to your room and do your homework.
