United Airlines Reports Consolidated Traffic Results for the Month of September 2016; Provides Consolidated Revenue Guidance for the Third Quarter of 2016

United Airlines reported consolidated traffic results for the month of September 2016. For the month, the company reported consolidated traffic (revenue passenger miles) increased 3.9% and consolidated capacity (available seat miles) increased 3.6% versus September 2015. UAL's September 2016 consolidated load factor increased 0.3 points compared to September 2015. The company now expects third-quarter 2016 consolidated passenger unit revenue to decline 5.5% to 6.0% compared to the third quarter of 2015. The year-over-year performance was primarily impacted by a strong U.S. dollar, lower surcharges, travel reductions from customers impacted by lower oil prices, competitive actions and passenger demand not growing at the same pace as industry capacity. The company's consolidated passenger unit revenue result was near the top end of the initial guidance range largely due to better than expected September close-in bookings driven by the timing of certain holidays.
