     CHICAGO, Jan 29, 1996 -- UAL Corporation, parent company of United

Airlines, continues in its effort to strengthen its balance sheet and

improve its debt rating with the implementation of more than $2.6 billion

in debt retirement and credit improvement initiatives since employees

became majority owners.

     Cost reduction achievements in the fourth quarter of 1995 included

completion of a program to retire all of its outstanding Japanese yen-

denominated deferred purchase certificates.  UAL Corporation (UAL) also

has terminated operating leases for 39 aircraft related to the deferred

purchase certificates.  These actions reduce the company's previously

disclosed minimum lease payment obligations over the next three years by

a total of $426 million.

     In addition, during the fourth quarter of 1995, the company

repurchased approximately $179 million of additional debt securities and

approximately $96 million of preferred stock.

     During the 18 months from the employee ownership transaction on

July 12, 1994, through year-end 1995, UAL has completed the following

credit improvement initiatives:

   -    $426 million       Termination of operating lease on, and
                           subsequent acquisition of 39 aircraft

   -    $195 million       Prepayment of deferred purchase certificates
                           (principal amount)

   -    $327 million       Repurchase of unsecured debt (principal amount)

   -    $190 million       Repurchase of Series B preferred stock
                           (liquidation preference)

   -    $426 million       Prepayment of aircraft mortgages (principal

   -    $269 million       Repayment of outstanding commercial paper

   -    $777 million       Pension plan finding
   -    $2.610 billion     Total

     UAL also is weighing the possibility of redeeming its 6 3/8 percent

convertible subordinated debentures on or after May 1, 1996, as part of

its debt-reduction program.

     The decision to redeem the debentures will depend on financial

markets and other conditions, including the last sale price of its common

stock exceeding $172.20 for 20 trading days within a period of 30

consecutive trading days, including the last trading day.  On January 26,

1996, the last sale price of UAL common stock was $156 5/8.  Should UAL

redeem such debentures prior to May 1, 1997, holders would receive

$1,043.75 in cash for every $1,000 in principal amount of debentures

redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, up to but excluding

the redemption date.

     If UAL issues a notice of redemption, holders may still convert

their debentures through the business day preceding the redemption date.

Upon conversion, holders will receive $541.90 in cash and approximately

3.192 shares of common stock for every $1,000 principal amount of

debentures.  If the redemption date is on or after an interest payment

date and prior to the next interest payment record date, holders who

convert will not be entitled to any interest on the debentures.
