UNITED AIRLINES FILES FOR INCREASED SERVICE TO MEXICO FROM LOS ANGELES

UNITED AIRLINES FILES FOR INCREASED SERVICE TO MEXICO FROM LOS ANGELES
 CHICAGO, June 19 /PRNewswire/ -- United Airlines filed today with the U.S. Department of Transportation for authority to operate daily, seasonal flights from Los Angeles to two popular leisure destinations in Mexico: Acapulco and Cabo San Lucas starting Dec. 8.
 "In combination with our recent expansion in Mexico City earlier this month, the addition of these new flights will greatly expand our geographic coverage in Mexico," said United Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Stephen M. Wolf.
 Less than four years ago, United operated one U.S.-Mexico route. Today, United is the largest international airline in the Mexican capital, and this winter plans to offer 119 weekly departures from four points in Mexico -- Acapulco, Cabo San Lucas, Cancun and Mexico City.
 "This new service also underscores United's commitment to strengthening our service at Los Angeles International Airport, where we will offer 109 daily departures beginning in December," Wolf said. Today, United serves seven international cities non-stop from Los Angeles: Auckland, Guatemala City, London, Mexico City, Paris, Sydney and Tokyo.
 The proposed new service to Acapulco and Cabo San Lucas will represent United's first flights to those destinations. Each flight will be timed to allow convenient connections in Los Angeles to other West Coast cities, such as San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, Ore., Oakland and Sacramento, Calif., providing leisure travelers throughout the West Coast with more travel options.
 United plans to operate the new Los Angeles-Mexico service with quiet, state-of-the-art Boeing 737-300 aircraft.
