United reports May 2015 operational results

United Airlines’ May 2015 consolidated traffic (revenue passenger miles) increased 0.5 percent and consolidated capacity (available seat miles) increased 2.1 percent versus May 2014. United’s May 2015 consolidated load factor decreased 1.4 points compared to May 2014. The company now expects second-quarter 2015 unit revenue (PRASM) to decline approximately 5 percent to 6 percent, primarily as a result of foreign exchange impact and revenue pressure related to lower oil prices. In addition, yields from close-in domestic bookings and revenue from oil-related corporate accounts have both softened compared to prior guidance.
