United to Reinstate 162 Flights in June
Thursday May 15, 10:04 am ET

CHICAGO (Reuters) - Bankrupt United Airlines said on Thursday that in June it would reinstate most of the domestic and transatlantic flights it had cut in April and May, when the war in Iraq curbed travel demand.

But the No. 2 U.S. carrier behind American Airlines said in a recorded message to employees that it was still seeing weakness in some Pacific markets because of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome and would extend reductions in service on some Pacific routes into the summer.

On June 12, the UAL Corp. (OTC BB:UALAQ.OB - News) unit will add 162 mainline flights to its schedule -- including additional service to Atlanta, Boston, Philadelphia, Seattle and a number of other U.S. and international cities.

United said it plans to operate 1,722 daily mainline domestic and international flights in June, up from 1,560 in May.

The airline also said it would reinstate nonstop service between San Francisco and Seoul in June after suspending it as part of its post-Sept. 11 service cutbacks.

The heavier schedule will result in changes to flight numbers and departure times that will affect more than 1 million customer bookings, United said. The company said it will notify those customers with changes to their itineraries beginning this week.


I guess Tilton & Co. are learning that you can't make money if you don't fly.
