 UNITED AIRLINES TRAFFIC INCREASES 4.3 PERCENT
 CHICAGO, May 6 /PRNewswire/ -- United Airlines today reported that


its total scheduled revenue passenger miles (RPMs) increased 4.3 percent in April compared with the same month of 1991.
 The airline's total scheduled RPMs were 6,639,344,000 compared with 6,367,454,000 in April of 1991.
