UAL CORP: Posts $80 Million Operating Loss in Third Quarter
UAL Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: UALAQ), the holding company
whose primary subsidiary is United Airlines, reported its third-
quarter 2004 financial results.

UAL reported a third-quarter operating loss of $80 million, which
compares with a $19 million operating profit in the third quarter
of 2003. UAL reported a net loss of $274 million, which includes
$97 million in special and reorganization items described in the
notes to the financial tables. Excluding the $97 million in
special and reorganization items, UAL's net loss for the third
quarter totaled $177 million, or a loss per basic share of $1.55.

"A systemic change is underway in the airline industry. Excess
capacity has led to the lowest fares in more than a decade," said
Glenn Tilton, chairman, president and chief executive officer.
"This new environment, coupled with record fuel costs, means we
have more work to do if we are to be successful. And we will be.
With our unmatched global route network, and our people, who
continue to deliver excellent customer service, no one is better
positioned in this industry than United to be sustainable,
profitable and competitive for the long term."

            United Continues Work on Ongoing Strategy
In the third quarter, United continued work on its ongoing
strategy to reduce costs, leverage the product portfolio and
network, deliver operational excellence and focus on customer
service and investment in products. Specifically, United:

   -- Successfully negotiated the expansion of its debtor-in-
      possession financing to $1 billion on favorable terms and
      extended the repayment schedule through June 2005,
      demonstrating that major financial institutions support the
      company's long-term prospects.

   -- Substantially accelerated the company's plan to optimize its
      worldwide network by expanding its international leadership,
      redeploying aircraft to more profitable routes and reducing
      the overall size of its mainline fleet;

   -- Leveraged United's core competencies to improve revenue from
      sources other than commercial flights, including United
      Services' maintenance, repair and overhaul services and
      United Cargo freight revenue;

   -- Agreed with certain large holders of Chicago municipal bonds
      to a settlement, which in effect, reduced United's
      indebtedness from about $600 million to $150 million.  This
      settlement results in savings of approximately $450 million
      for United.

   -- Continued to deliver outstanding operational performance for
      the third quarter 2004.  Seventy percent of United flights
      departed exactly on time during the quarter, two percentage
      points better than the goal set by the company for its new
      employee incentive program.

"United's financial performance, like the rest of the industry,
was severely affected by low yields and the soaring cost of fuel
during one of the traditionally most profitable periods. During
the third quarter, the company burned through almost $1 million
per day on an operating basis," said Jake Brace, United's
executive vice president and chief financial officer. "Even though
our unit revenue performance was on par with our peers, the
pricing environment prohibits us from recouping high fuel costs.
Given the urgency of United's situation and the stark financial
reality in the entire industry, United believes that it will have
no choice but to seek significant additional labor savings beyond
terminating and replacing our pension plans."

Notwithstanding the $5 billion in annualized cost reductions the
company will have in place by 2005, United previously announced
that it had targeted more than $1 billion in additional cost
savings over and above any savings that United might realize
through the potential termination and replacement of its pension
plans. UAL expects to substantially update its business plan based
on feedback from the capital markets, the creditor's committee and
other stakeholders.

                        Financial Results
UAL's third-quarter 2004 operating revenues were $4.3 billion, up
7% compared to third quarter 2003. Load factor increased 1.9
points to 82.1% as traffic increased 11% on an 8% increase in
capacity. During the third quarter, passenger unit revenue was 3%
lower on a 5% yield decrease.

Largely driven by the 8% increase in capacity, total operating
expenses for the quarter were $4.4 billion, up 10% from the year-
ago quarter. Mainline operating expenses per available seat mile
increased 1% from the third quarter 2003. Excluding fuel, mainline
operating expenses per available seat mile decreased 7%.
Productivity (available seat miles divided by employee
equivalents) was up 9% for the quarter year-over-year. Fuel
expense was $291 million higher than in the third quarter 2003.
Average fuel price for the quarter was $1.30 per gallon (including
taxes), up 44% year-over-year.

The company ended the quarter with an unrestricted cash balance of
$1.5 billion and an additional restricted cash balance of $857
million. During the quarter the company made a quarterly
retroactive wage payment to International Association of
Machinists members of $63 million and a quarterly Success Sharing
reward to employees of $26 million. In addition, non-aircraft
capital expenditures totaled $79 million and principal debt
repayments totaled $136 million. During September, the company
accessed $503 million from the expanded debtor-in-possession

The company had an effective tax rate of zero for the third
quarter, which makes UAL's pre-tax loss the same as its net loss.


The Company expects fourth-quarter system mainline capacity to be
up about 3% year- over-year. Mainline capacity for 2005 is
expected to be about 3% lower than 2004. The company expects fuel
price, including taxes, for the fourth quarter to average $1.45
per gallon. As a result, fuel expense for the year is expected to
be $1.2 billion higher than planned. The company has 36% of its
expected fuel consumption for the fourth quarter hedged between $1
and $1.17 per gallon, excluding taxes.

                September Monthly Operating Report
UAL also filed with the United States Bankruptcy Court its Monthly
Operating Report for September. The company posted a $118 million
operating loss for September and met its DIP covenants for the
month. The Company reported that they are currently in compliance
with the terms of the Club Facility; however, they now believe
that, due to record high fuel prices coupled with continued
weakness in the revenue environment, there is a strong possibility
that we will not be able to comply with the Club Facility's
EBITDAR covenant in the fourth quarter. Under the current terms of
the Club Facility, failure to comply with the EBITDAR covenant
would constitute a default of the Club Facility.  The Company is
currently in discussions with the Club Facility lenders regarding
this situation.

Headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, UAL Corporation -- through United Air Lines, Inc., is the   
holding company for United Airlines -- the world's second largest  
air carrier. The Company filed for chapter 11 protection on  
December 9, 2002 (Bankr. N.D. Ill. Case No. 02-48191). James H.M.  
Sprayregen, Esq., Marc Kieselstein, Esq., David R. Seligman, Esq.,  
and Steven R. Kotarba, Esq., at Kirkland & Ellis, represent the  
Debtors in their restructuring efforts. When the Debtors filed  
for protection from their creditors, they listed $24,190,000,000  
in assets and $22,787,000,000 in debts.

US AIRWAYS: Third Quarter 2004 Net Loss Widens to $232 Million
US Airways Group, Inc., reported a net loss of $232 million for
the third quarter 2004, compared to a net loss of $90 million for
the third quarter 2003. The net loss per share was $4.22 for the
third quarter of 2004, compared to a net loss of $1.69 per share
for the third quarter of 2003.

The third quarter 2004 pre-tax loss of $239 million compares to a
pre-tax loss of $91 million for the same quarter in 2003.
Excluding unusual items, the pre-tax loss for the third quarter
2004 was $227 million compared to $91 million in 2003.

"I am disappointed that we have reported yet another quarterly
loss, however, I am confident that we are charting a new course
with a well-crafted plan, that if fully implemented, can return US
Airways to profitability," said US Airways President and Chief
Executive Officer Bruce R. Lakefield. "This is a strong franchise,
with hard-working employees who have the will to succeed, and
given the right cost structure, we will be successful."

Mr. Lakefield said that he was heartened by the ratification of a
new labor agreement by the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA) and
three work groups represented by the Transport Workers Union
(TWU). Additionally, the company is in negotiations with its other
unions, and continues to make progress in all areas of its
Transformation Plan, highlighted by the February 2005 change to
its business model where new flying and operational efficiencies
will be implemented. He noted that operating revenue for the third
quarter 2004 improved to $1.80 billion from $1.77 billion for the
third quarter of 2003, which is a 1.6 percent increase year-over-

System passenger revenue per available seat mile (PRASM) for the
third quarter 2004 was 10.12 cents, down 3.4 percent compared to
the third quarter of 2003. Domestically, system PRASM fell 5.3
percent to 10.68 cents. System statistics encompass mainline,
MidAtlantic Airways, wholly owned airline subsidiaries of US
Airways Group, Inc. as well as capacity purchases from third
parties operating regional jets as US Airways Express. For US
Airways mainline operations only, the PRASM of 9.12 cents was down
3.1 percent.

System available seat miles (ASMs) were up 4.1 percent, while
mainline ASMs increased 2.1 percent during the third quarter 2004.
Revenue passenger miles (RPMs) increased 6.2 percent for the full
US Airways system, while mainline RPMs increased 3.3 percent. The
third quarter system load factor of 76.1 percent was up 1.4
percentage points year-over-year. The mainline passenger load
factor was up 0.9 percentage points to 77.8 percent. For the third
quarter 2004, US Airways Group Inc.'s system carried 14.3 million
passengers, an increase of 4.2 percent, while mainline operations
carried 10.4 million passengers, a 1.4 percent decrease compared
to the same period of 2003. The third quarter 2004 yield for
mainline operations of 11.73 cents decreased 4.2 percent from the
same period in 2003, while system yield was down 5.3 percent to
13.29 cents.

US Airways Senior Vice President of Marketing and Planning B. Ben
Baldanza said that the company's Transformation Plan assumes that
it will continue to operate in an environment of high fuel prices,
continued growth of low-fare competition, diluted yields and more
consumer dependency on the Internet. "We long have recognized that
the paradigm has shifted and that for us to prosper, we would need
to adapt to the changing marketplace realities. To that extent, we
are ahead of the other legacy carriers that are still in the early
phases of transformation," said Mr. Baldanza.

Mr. Baldanza added that certain key elements of the Transformation
Plan are in place. "We have increased the number of markets where
we offer low GoFares, introduced a February schedule that offers
25 new routes and 230 more daily departures, and we are in the
process of significantly enhancing our Web site,,
for added convenience, reliability, and reduced distribution
costs," said Mr. Baldanza.

The mainline cost per available seat mile (CASM), excluding fuel
and unusual items, of 9.74 cents for the third quarter 2004, was a
2.3 percent increase over the same period in 2003.

US Airways' operational performance slipped during the third
quarter, in part due to an unusual hurricane season, severe summer
storm activity in the East, and an EDS driven computer malfunction
in August that caused flight delays and cancellations. Lost
revenue and operational costs resulting from the hurricanes is
estimated to have cost the company at least $20 million. For the
quarter, US Airways mainline operations completed 97.3 percent of
its flights, with 80.7 percent of those flights arriving on time.

The cost of aviation fuel per gallon, including taxes, for the
third quarter 2004 was 111.5 cents (106.1 cents excluding taxes),
up 29 percent from the same period in 2003. Fuel hedging benefits,
which partially mitigated the dramatic increase in fuel price,
improved results by $38 million, or 16.4 cents per gallon.

Despite the company's best efforts to mitigate the impact, the
sustained high price of fuel and the lack of any relief from
record prices continue to have a negative impact on cash flow.
Lakefield said that senior management has been tasked with
carefully reviewing all aspects of operations in order to further
conserve cash and will take appropriate action as necessary in
order to remain in compliance with financing agreements.

Substantially all of the company's unrestricted cash (includes
cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments), constitutes
cash collateral under the Air Transportation Stabilization Board
(ATSB) loan agreement. As of Sept. 30, 2004, $757 million of cash
collateral was available for the company's use, subject to certain
limitations, under a cash collateral agreement with the ATSB and
approved by the Bankruptcy Court. The cash collateral agreement
has been extended through Jan. 14, 2005. Additionally, on
Sept. 30, 2004, restricted cash was $733 million, for a total cash
position of $1.49 billion. This compares to a total cash position
of $1.73 billion at June 30, 2004, which included $975 million of
unrestricted cash.

Other notable developments:

    * Announced more details of the Transformation Plan with a
      significant restructuring of the flight schedule beginning
      Feb. 6, 2005, to include improved aircraft utilization,
      changes to hub operations, and approximately 230 more daily
      flights using no additional aircraft.

    * Engaged labor groups in discussions that led to pilots'
      ratification of $300 million annual cost-savings agreement,
      which runs through 2009, and three TWU groups' ratification
      of cost savings agreements.  The company has given proposals
      to its other labor groups.

    * Expanded breadth of Star Alliance network through new bmi
      codeshare agreement.  Initially, US Airways' code will be
      added on bmi flights between Manchester, U.K., and both
      Edinburgh and Glasgow, Scotland.

      Also expanded GoCarribean network with addition of
      Bahamasair codeshare and marketing agreement.

    * Rolled out more low GoFares from several Pennsylvania
      cities, including Pittsburgh, to seven West Coast
      destinations.  These fares are in addition to the GoFares
      already in place to and from Philadelphia.  US Airways now
      has GoFares on numerous routes in Pennsylvania, Florida, and
      Washington, D.C.

    * Continued adding gate boarding pass scanners for expedited
      boarding and passenger convenience.  Scanners now are
      available at 19 airports in the U.S., with further expansion
      planned in 2005.  US Airways anticipates adding more than 75
      self-service kiosks by the end of the year for easier check-
      in.  489 kiosks are currently deployed in 84 cities.

    * Introduced a service fee for customers who desire
      personalized reservations ticketing assistance.  The fee
      applies for tickets purchased by calling US Airways' toll-
      free reservations or visiting US Airways' airport and city
      ticket counters.  Shuttle tickets are exempt from the fee.

US Airways Group, Inc. and its domestic subsidiaries filed
voluntary petitions for reorganization under Chapter 11 of the
U.S. Bankruptcy Code on Sept. 12, 2004, providing the company the
opportunity to implement its Transformation Plan built on lower
costs, a simplified fare structure, and expanded service.

The court granted US Airways interim relief from the company's
collective bargaining agreements with the Association of Flight
Attendants (AFA), Communications Workers of America (CWA), and the
International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers
(IAM) on Oct. 15, 2004, and approved the company's new agreements
with ALPA and the TWU on Oct. 26, 2004.

US Airways will not hold a third quarter results conference call.

Headquartered in Arlington, Virginia, US Airways' primary business  
activity is the ownership of the common stock of:

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

Each Friday's edition of the TCR includes a review about a book of
