United reports November 2018 operational performance

One of the USA's leading airlines, the mega-carrier, United issued its results for November this week showing that revenue and loads increased year on year. The airline also announced a number of new routes including year-round service between Denver and Frankfurt, Germany and nonstop service between Paine Field/Snohomish County Airport and Denver and San Francisco, all pending government approval, and submitted a formal application to the U.S. Department of Transportation for authority to increase service between New York/Newark Liberty and Shanghai Pudong.

United also took delivery of its first Boeing 787-10, becoming the first North American airline to take delivery of the 787-10.




Other Highlights

Announced UAL has reached an agreement with Compañía Panameña de Aviación S.A. (Copa), Aerovías del Continente Americano S.A. (Avianca) and many of Avianca's affiliates, for a joint business agreement, pending government approval.

Announced that the newest premium seating, United® Premium Plus, would be on sale beginning December 3, for travel on select international flights starting March 30, 2019.
Announced $150,000 in direct donations to Ventura County Community Foundation and North Valley Community Foundation for their efforts in areas affected by the California wildfires, while launching a Crowdrise by GoFundMe campaign to award up to five million bonus miles for individuals who make donations of $50 or more to support affected communities in California.

Announced the addition of nearly 150 additional flights between UAL's hubs and popular spring break destinations including Arizona, Florida, Hawaii, Mexico, the Caribbean and select ski destinations.
