UNITED AIRLINES TO RESUME MIDWAY-ORLANDO SERVICE DEC. 1

       UNITED AIRLINES TO RESUME MIDWAY-ORLANDO SERVICE DEC. 1
    CHICAGO, Nov. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- United Airlines announced today it will resume service between Chicago's Midway Airport and Orlando, Fla., Dec. 1, with three daily round-trip flights with quiet, environmentally compatible Stage III Boeing 737-300 aircraft.
    The new flights will allow Midway-boarding customers to utilize United's major connecting complex at Orlando for United flights to such major Florida destinations as Ft. Lauderdale, Ft. Myers, Jacksonville, Miami, Sarasota, Tampa and West Palm Beach.  United significantly increased service at Orlando last month, boosting daily flights to 45.
    To accommodate increased demand, United said it also will substitute larger aircraft on two of its five flights between Chicago's O'Hare International Airport and Orlando and one of its three flights between O'Hare and Tampa, effective Sunday, Nov. 17.
    "These additional flights coupled with the use of larger aircraft are designed to help meet the needs of Florida-bound Chicago vacationers in light of the sudden cessation of service this week by Midway Airlines," said Stephen M. Wolf, chairman and president.
    The equipment substitutions between Chicago O'Hare and Orlando include a DC-10 for a Boeing 727 and a Boeing 757 for a Boeing 737 and, between O'Hare and Tampa, a Boeing 757 for a Boeing 727.  The bigger aircraft will add 261 additional daily seats in each direction.
    United's Midway-to-Orlando schedule will consist of an early morning flight departing at 7 a.m. and arriving at 10:35 a.m., a midday flight departing at 11:35 a.m. and arriving at 3:10 p.m. and a late-afternoon flight departing at 4:55 p.m. and arriving at 8:30 p.m.
    United's Orlando-to-Midway schedule will consist of a morning flight departing at 9 a.m. and arriving at 10:42 a.m., an early afternoon flight departing at 1:50 p.m. and arriving at 3:32 p.m. and an evening flight departing at 7 p.m. and arriving at 8:42 p.m.
    All Midway-Orlando flights will be operated in Boeing 737-300 aircraft seating eight passengers in first class and 120 in coach.
    McDonald's Friendly Skies Meals for children will be offered on all flights.  They must be ordered when reservations are made.
