Excellent. A year or two more of good results and UA might be able to order new airplanes.  Confused

This can't be... According to Airliners.net UAL was in Chapter 7 in March 2003!

I'm sure I read that here...

Is this with or without special items, hedging losses, hedging gains, one time expenses, fuel increases, Hurricanes, TSA restrictions, bad luck, good luck, El Nino, etc. etc. ???

It must be more complicated  Wink

If I read it correctly special items reduced profit by $60 million. Overall a really good quarter for UA.

THAT'S MY BABY!!! I'm so proud of us!!! It shows that we, the employees, are not laboring in vain. I hope this will continue through the down season, and next year, and for many more years to come. Way to go United. Way to go us (the employees)!

Note: Is this the best 3Q result so far???? I think it is!! (Someone tell me if it isn't...)

I remember boarding my first UA flight after they filed for bankruptcy, and the crew was very attentive and pleasant, they wore buttons that said " We WILL survive".

Well, you out there that are UA employees (union, management, non-contract alike) should be commended for your tenacity, will-power, and dedication. Many other carriers have folded in similar circumstances. As a MP Premier, I am very glad to see UA steadily make progress toward financial health, I appreciate their product.

Congrats to UA, keep the faith.

Well, it's about time a solid profit like this happened.

Quoting Bicoastal (Reply 1):

I would hope not. Or rather, at least, I would hope they have the sense to trim their fleet somewhat - maybe not reduce the number of a/c, but reduce fleet types. That would then, of course, make them have to buy more a/c in other current fleet types to keep their number of a/c around the current level. Maybe they could reduce their 757 fleet in favor of more A320's or some 737-800's. 6 fleet types is a bit much.

I'd say more the employees, but Tilton (or someone/some group) up there has done better than I thought 2-3 years ago they would.

Ok, this will be the last time I open my mouth (until later tonight):
I have a question. When we have aircraft damages like the huge damage to N653UA, the Star Alliance plane that had underbelly/undercarriage damage early this summer, and the a/c hose ingestion by one of our Airbii last week, and other aircraft damages, how much does that hurt UA's bottom line (i.e. how much does it affect the profits / losses in the end)? Just something that had been bothering me for a while...Thanks in advance.

Actually, they were buttons and bumper stickers that read "United WILL Stand"

I still have two bumperstickers and multiple buttons. One day I'll put them up on Ebay.

Still....I hear only the crickets chirping from all of those armchair CEO's whose only experience was playing that Airline game online.

This would be accounted for in an overall operational budget, if not some type of insurance otherwise. An airline the size of UA sees mishaps like this regularly and has some budgetary averages. I know you probably see stuff like this and shake your head, but good planning anticipates this type of risk.

Thank you for the kind words. It is nice to know our hard work is paying off now.



I wish UA flew mainline to MYR, that way you wouldn't be stuck in a smelly Saturn for 12 hours.

Actually I'd like to see them start retrofitting the 737 and 757 fleet with blanded winglets first. Get the current fleet more fuel efficient before replacing 767s.

Sort of ... CO reported net income of $237 million, but that included a one-time gain from the sale of Copa stock. Without the gain, their net was $146 million, still quite a bit better than UA on a percentage basis. Nevertheless, UA's accomplishment is remarkable. You might wish the cash flow were better, but if operating results continue, that will improve too.

Giving the ramp receipt-dispatch was brilliant!

I hate to break it to you. Non mechanics have been doing R&D at about 70% of United stations for god knows how long. Lets not talk about of the aircraft damage from MM lift units!

Back to the subject. I guess we as United employees have been doing our job to help the company make this money.

I agree. But, can you fit B733 and B735 with winglets? I thought it just the 737NG that can be fitted.

I would love to see them upgrade the 747 interiors first. Improve what you have first, bigger bang for the buck!

Then, take deliveries of the A320 the 737 fleet can be retired and order the 787!

Aviation Partners Boeing does offer winglets for the B733... I know as a fact that WN ordered 90 shipsets of winglets for their 733 fleet. Not sure about winglets for the B735, though.
