Compare the top competitors of Delta Air Lines, Inc. Take a deeper look into the key drivers of competition in the airline industry.
Late this week, United said it has made some changes aboard its planes aimed at lightening the load onboard and allowing aircraft to operate in a more efficient and eco-friendly fashion. No change is too small, apparently, when it comes to United's mission to operate more efficiently. Remember, United CEO Oscar Munoz is on an efficiency kick as he seeks to reduce costs and fatten United's bottom line — something the investor community is pressuring him to do sooner rather than later.
United Airlines' contract for cockpit avionics will likely help Honeywell International (HON) to increase its revenue from Aerospace products.
United Continental Holdings Inc. is set to debut an upgraded economy section with bigger seats and free booze on some international flights, following similar moves by U.S. rivals.
United Airlines has tapped Fortune 100 software industrial company Honeywell to provide key cockpit avionics for more than 150 new Boeing 737 MAX jets that the Chicago-based carrier will start taking delivery of in April of this year. Honeywell (HON) worked previously with United on other types of airplane technology, but this is the first time the company has supplied cockpit avionics for United aircraft. The flight deck package going on to the United 737 MAX will include Honeywell's SmartRunway and SmartLanding technology designed to increase flight crew awareness of their surroundings during taxi, takeoff and landing.

The world's largest airline said today it will launch a new hourly shuttle service between O'Hare and LaGuardia starting Wednesday, April 4. American Airlines (AAL) plans to operate 15 flights every weekday in each direction departing on the half-hour.

United Continental's (UAL) fourth-quarter results are likely to be aided by higher passenger revenues. However, higher costs are expected to limit bottom-line growth.
Spirit Airlines is recovering quickly from a damaging fare war with United. If Spirit can keep up the momentum, 2018 could be a great year for shareholders.
The campaign will unfold at United airport locations, other out-of-home spaces, and on social media platforms starting tomorrow. The campaign also will air for the first time on television during the opening ceremonies of the 2018 Winter Games. For a number of years, United has used the Olympics as a major marketing platform because of the Chicago-based carrier's longstanding close ties to the big event. For the past 38 years, United has been a sponsor of United States Olympic teams and the United States Olympic Committee — ferrying the nation's elite athletes all over the world to compete.
Although the winter storm that hit Houston Jan. 16 has moved out of the area, the blanket of ice left behind is still impacting flights into and out of local airports. Both George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) and William P. Hobby Airport are open, but icy roadways around the city are making it hard for travelers to get to them. The fly-over bridge from westbound Will Clayton Boulevard to southbound John F. Kennedy Boulevard is closed due to icing.
In light of recent gaffes from the likes of Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. (NYSE:CMG), Equifax Inc. (NYSE:EFX) and United Continental Holdings Inc (NYSE:UAL), it’s not as if Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) didn’t know what to expect (and what to do about) the recent revelation that most of its computer processors were vulnerable to some rather nasty hacking. How the company responded to it is fair game for judgment, whether or not you own INTC stock. With that as the backdrop, here’s the report card of what Intel did well and didn’t do well in response to the Spectre and Meltdown dust-up.
United Airlines and American Airlines, the two major carriers operating internationally from Chicago, are facing new competitive threats from WOW air, the Iceland-based ultra-low-fare carrier that flies nonstop five times weekly from Chicago's O'Hare International Airport to Reykjavik, Iceland and onward to a number of European cities. WOW said today it is launching an extended winter sale with rock-bottom $69 one-way fares from Chicago to Reykjavik, an increasingly hot tourist destination, and $89 one-way fares to a number of European cities, including London (LGW), Amsterdam (AMS), Copenhagen (CPH), Dublin (DUB) and Frankfurt (FRA). WOW is the same kind of threat internationally to the likes of United and American that ultra-low-fare carriers such as Spirit Airlines (SAVE) and Frontier Airlines represent on the domestic front. Both Spirit and Frontier are aggressively expanding their route systems in the U.S. and offering low-ball fares.
United Airlines' 12,700 pilots have re-elected Todd Insler as chairman of the United Master Executive Council (MEC) of the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA). Insler, a 23-year Boeing 757 and 767 pilot at United, also will retain his seat on the board of directors of United's parent company United Continental Holdings (UAL). Inseler's re-election comes as the powerful pilots union at United moves to begin negotiations on a new contract with United, where CEO Oscar Munoz is under pressure from investors to hold the line on costs and fatten the carrier's bottom line.
United Airlines today said that Michael Leskinen has been named to the post of managing director of investor relations at the Chicago-based airline. In an investor call last year, Munoz asked for more time to improve the company's numbers as analysts struggled to understand whether Munoz had a workable strategy going forward.

The Houston Business Journal’s new Busiest Houston-Area Airlines List shows that Chicago-based United Airlines (UAL) was the top carrier for three years in a row. In 2016, George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) and William P. Hobby Airport (HOU) logged over 11 million international passengers combined — and 53 percent of them traveled on United Airlines, according to data from the U.S. Department of Transportation .
