United Airlines (UAL) reported July 2017 operational results. UAL’s July 2017 consolidated traffic (revenue passenger miles) increased 3.9 percent and consolidated capacity (available seat miles) increased 4.6 percent versus July 2016. UAL’s July 2017 consolidated load factor decreased 0.6 points compared to July 2016.

Scott Kirby, president of United Airlines, said, “Running a great airline starts with taking off on time, and last month, we saw the best-ever on-time departures for the month of July in our history, all while carrying more passengers than ever before. We saw improved metrics on almost every front, including the best July on-time delivery from our tech ops team in six years and a 12 percent improvement in our baggage performance.”

The company continues to expect third-quarter 2017 consolidated passenger unit revenue to be down 1.0 percent to up 1.0 percent compared to the third quarter of 2016.
