United Airlines is to cut non-union staff pay bills by US$1.3 Billion. Salaried and management would take a 2.8 - 10.7% pay cut.

 Sad but hopefully this will make UAL a stronger airline and company

To all of you who want to see UAL go under(I know there are alot of you out there) I hope you are happy. 9,000 more people with families, bills, etc are without jobs me being one of them from last fall. I like the fact that we are all working togeather as employees to take wage cuts to make the airline profitable. One thing though. I am angry and upset that we are agreeing to all this and we are a majority of us are still getting cut. We are expcted to be profitable again in 2004 CNN said this morning and i hope they are right. To all of you who want to see UAL rise from the ashes, Thank you for your support. To Ripcordd they are all 767-200s, some 747-400s and a handfull of 737s Sad

Just the -200s. Watch for the 3 cabin 300s to be taking over all European operations in January with the exception of London and Frankfurt.

The main thing ualrampord, the only ones slamming UNITED right now are the people who ironically don't even work in the industry. More arm chair quarterbacks if you will, and you'll be back. UNITED Wont go under and if we do file for chap 11 the rest of this tired industry will be right behind us.

keep you head up, you'll be back.

I think the Financial Times might be wrong...

I reviewed the UA press release from Sunday and it says nothing about cutting 9,000 jobs.

But a press release from today did say that United's _9,000 pilots_ have agreed to pay cuts equalling 1.3bln USD.

I might be wrong too... but I read all the press releases and didn't see anything.

At any rate, I purchased my X-mas vacation tickets on United.
So they have my confidence....and my business...bankruptcy or not.

I'm not saying that UAL will go bankrupt, or that I hope it will happen, but...

I will not be flying with them anytime soon (I didn't much care for UAL before 11.sep anyways, and that day didn't help matters of course). For X-mass, I booked with NWA, as I have had much better experiance with their European Operations anyways (Going home via NWA & KLM this year.)

Second point. If indeed UAL does go under, no, the rest of the industry will certainly NOT follow it (I assume you are reffering to the North American market). NWA & Delta are recovering nicely, and Continental is not far behind the pack. In fact I think this group will in some form or another replace AA & UAL as America's frontline carriers in the next 2 - 5 years, just as those two snatched that from PAA & TWA more than a decade ago. Not flamming, just calling it the way I see it.

Cheers then

I should add to my previous post that I sincerely hope the Journal got it wrong about the 9000 jobs. 9000 newly unemployed people are never a good thing for any economy, no matter what Airline they came from.
