After meeting with United Continental's (UAL) management, UBS analysts Darryl Genovesi and David Strauss contend that the carrier might finally increase its profit margins. While no hub closures appear imminent, United Continental's hub-and-spoke review is ongoing, and the team did refer to LAX as a "big spoke" with limited opportunity to connect. Mr. Kirby expressed comfort in United Continental's existing fare structure, and hadn't implemented a "blanket" ultra-low cost carrier (ULCC) fare matching policy as he had at American, although he noted that he would keep an eye on ULCC growth, and revisit the need for blanket-matching if ULCCs became too aggressive.
