United Rewards Employees with Cash Bonus for July Performance
Employees earn $125 bonus payout for top-tier performance and exceeding
customer satisfaction goals in July
CHICAGO, Aug. 12, 2014
CHICAGO, Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --United Airlines today announced that it
is rewarding all eligible employees with a cash bonus for exceeding the
airline's on-time arrival and departure performance goals for the month of
July. United's goal for on-time performance is to be first or second among the
largest four U.S. carriers. The on-time arrival rate is based on flights
arriving within 14 minutes of the scheduled arrival time. Eligible employees
also earned an additional cash bonus for exceeding United's customer
satisfaction goal for July, resulting in a total payout of $125 per eligible
employee for the month.
Despite challenges across the system and runway construction at San Francisco
– one of the airline's largest hubs – United ended July with its best July
on-time performance in four years. The performance was an improvement over the
same month last year as well as June of this year. United's mainline and
United Express D :00 were also better than target and better than last year's
"While we still have room for improvement, we're seeing a lot of momentum as
we work to create a more reliable and efficient airline," said Greg Hart,
United's executive vice president and chief operations officer. "These bonuses
are further proof that the actions we are taking are paying off."
Five of United's sevenhubs had the best July A :14 performance since 2010,
with the airline's Los Angeles hub leading the pack. United also placed first
or second of the four largest U.S. carriers in A :14 for 13 of the last 18
days of the month.

flights a day to 369 airports across six continents. In 2013, United and

world and operated nearly two million flights carrying 139 million customers.
