Headquartered in Butte, Montana, Touch America Holdings, Inc.,

develops, owns, and operates data transport and Internet services
to commercial customers. The Company filed for chapter 11

Stargatt & Taylor, LLP represent the Debtor. When the Company
filed for bankruptcy protection, it listed $631,408,000 in total
assets and $554,200,000 in total debts.

On December 23, 2003, Touch America sold substantially all of its

360networks, a Vancouver, Canada based corporation for

UAL CORP: Posts $56.4 Million Net Loss in August 2004
-----------------------------------------------------
UAL Corporation (OTCBB: UALAQ.OB), the holding company whose
primary subsidiary is United Airlines, filed its August Monthly
Operating Report with the United States Bankruptcy Court.  The
company reported an operating loss of $12 million for August
2004.  Mainline passenger unit revenue decreased 5% year-over-
year.  Unit costs were up 4% over last year.  Excluding fuel, unit
costs improved 3% year-over-year.  The company reported a net loss
of $56 million, including $11 million in reorganization expenses.   
UAL met the requirements of its debtor-in-possession financing.  

"The weak domestic revenue environment, coupled with intense
competition and fuel prices still well above $40 a barrel  
continue to negatively impact United and the industry," said Jake  
Brace, executive vice president and chief financial officer.   
"The environment does not appear to be changing, so we must, if  
we are to be competitive.  The situation underscores our need to  
quickly reduce our cost structure even further and move forward  
with our restructuring work and our efforts to attract suitable  
exit financing."

Mr. Brace said fuel prices averaged $45 a barrel in August,  
compared with $32 a barrel in August 2003.  At the same time,  
average fares in August decreased substantially due to the highly  
competitive market.

UAL ended August with a cash balance of about $2.0 billion,  
which included $839 million in restricted cash (filing entities  
only).  The cash balance decreased approximately $77 million  
during the month of August.

United continued to deliver strong operational results in August,
with an on-time :14 arrival performance rate of 80.0% and a load
factor of 83.8%.  Employees also exceeded the company's goals for
August for customer satisfaction, as measured by definite intent
to repurchase.

Monday's edition of the TCR delivers a list of indicative prices
for bond issues that reportedly trade well below par.  Prices are
obtained by TCR editors from a variety of outside sources during
the prior week we think are reliable.  Those sources may not,
however, be complete or accurate.  The Monday Bond Pricing table
is compiled on the Friday prior to publication.  Prices reported
are not intended to reflect actual trades.  Prices for actual
trades are probably different.  Our objective is to share
information, not make markets in publicly traded securities.
Nothing in the TCR constitutes an offer or solicitation to buy or
sell any security of any kind.  It is likely that some entity
affiliated with a TCR editor holds some position in the issuers'
public debt and equity securities about which we report.

Each Tuesday edition of the TCR contains a list of companies with
insolvent balance sheets whose shares trade higher than $3 per
share in public markets.  At first glance, this list may look like
the definitive compilation of stocks that are ideal to sell short.  
Don't be fooled.  Assets, for example, reported at historical cost
net of depreciation may understate the true value of a firm's
assets.  A company may establish reserves on its balance sheet for
liabilities that may never materialize.  The prices at which
equity securities trade in public market are determined by more
than a balance sheet solvency test.

A list of Meetings, Conferences and Seminars appears in each
Wednesday's edition of the TCR. Submissions about insolvency-
related conferences are encouraged. Send announcements to
conferences@bankrupt.com.

Each Friday's edition of the TCR includes a review about a book of
interest to troubled company professionals. All titles are
available at your local bookstore or through Amazon.com. Go to
http://www.bankrupt.com/books/to order any title today.

Monthly Operating Reports are summarized in every Saturday edition
of the TCR.

For copies of court documents filed in the District of Delaware,
please contact Vito at Parcels, Inc., at 302-658-9911. For
bankruptcy documents filed in cases pending outside the District
of Delaware, contact Ken Troubh at Nationwide Research &
Consulting at 207/791-2852.
