United Airlines reports April statistics

United Airlines April 2016 consolidated traffic (revenue passenger miles) decreased 1.9 percent and consolidated capacity (available seat miles) decreased 0.9 percent versus April 2015. UAL’s April 2016 consolidated load factor decreased 0.9 points compared to April 2015.

The company continues to expect second-quarter 2016 consolidated passenger unit revenue to decline 6.5 to 8.5 percent compared to the second quarter of 2015. The year-over-year performance is primarily impacted by a strong U.S. dollar, lower surcharges, travel reductions from customers impacted by declining oil prices, competitive actions and passenger demand not growing at the same pace as industry capacity.

For April, United reported a consolidated load factor of 80.5%, lower than 81.4% reported in the same period last year.
