John W. Creighton, Jr., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of UAL Corporation is speaking on June 12, 2002 at the Merrill Lynch Global Transportation Conference. Accompanying Mr. Creighton is Jake Brace, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.
At the conference, Mr. Creighton is to provide certain financial information regarding the Company, including the following:
In April, United outperformed the rest of the industry on a system wide
unit revenue basis, year-over-year. In addition, based on May's data,
United's unit revenue was down by only three to four percent year-over
year. We believe that number may beat the industry average once again.
The Company's cash burn was halved from $10 million per day in the fourth
quarter to under $5 million per day in the first quarter and expects that
when we announce our second quarter results it will be significantly better
