          UAL CORPORATION TO REDEEM 6 3/8% CONVERTIBLE
                     SUBORDINATED DEBENTURES;
                                
           DISCUSSES HIGHER FIRST QUARTER EXPECTATIONS

     CHICAGO, March 19, 1996 -- UAL Corporation, the parent

company whose primary subsidiary is United Airlines, today

announced that it is issuing a redemption notice for its 6 3/8%

convertible subordinated debentures with a redemption date of May

1, 1996.

     Debenture holders will receive $1,043.75, plus accrued

interest of $15.9375, in cash for every $1,000 in principal

amount of debentures redeemed.  Alternatively, holders may

convert their debentures on or before 5:00 p.m. April 30, 1996

(EST) and receive $541.90 in cash and approximately 3.192 shares

of UAL common stock (with cash in lieu of fractional shares) for

every $1,000 principal amount of debentures.

     The Bank of New York, whose address is 101 Barclay Street,

New York, NY 10286, is the redemption and conversion agent.

     The redemption or conversion of the debentures will reduce

UAL's gross interest expense by $38 million annually.  If all

debentures are converted prior
 to the May 1 redemption date,

first quarter gross interest expense will be reduced by $6

million.

     Separately, UAL noted first quarter traffic and yields are

expected to be stronger than originally estimated.  Costs also

will be slightly higher due to increasing fuel prices and costs

associated with additional revenues.  As a result, UAL expects

its first quarter earnings will exceed the highest analyst's

estimate reported to First Call of $2.05 per fully distributed

share.

     The information set forth in the preceding paragraph is

forward looking and actual results could differ materially from

expected results.  Factors that could significantly impact

expected traffic, yields, revenue and costs include the airline

pricing environment, the general economic environment, world oil

prices and other factors discussed in company filings with the

Securities and Exchange Commission.
