UNITED AIRLINES TRAFFIC INCREASES 7.5 PERCENT

 UNITED AIRLINES TRAFFIC INCREASES 7.5 PERCENT
 CHICAGO, Feb. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- United Airlines today reported that


its total scheduled revenue passenger miles (RPMs) increased 7.5 percent in January compared with the same month of 1991.
 Total scheduled available seat miles (ASMs) increased by 8.7 percent, resulting in a 0.7 point decrease in system load factor to 58.3 percent.
 In commenting on the month, Vice Chairman John C. Pope said, "Our January traffic results continue to be influenced by the weak U.S. economy. Pacific and Atlantic markets, on the other hand, performed quite well, although year-over-year comparisons are somewhat distorted by the onset of the gulf war a year ago."
 For January, domestic revenue passenger miles totaled 3,908,637,000, a decrease of 1.7 percent from 3,975,047,000 accumulated in January a year ago. Pacific revenue passenger miles totaled 1,783,658,000, an increase of 6.0 percent from 1,682,527,000 a year ago. Atlantic revenue passenger miles totaled 447,857,000, an increase of 585.3 percent from 65,349,000 a year ago.
 System ASMs were 10,605,727,000, up 8.7 percent from 9,758,193,000 a year ago. Domestic ASMs were 7,328,486,000, an increase of 3.9 percent from 7,054,688,000 a year ago. Pacific ASMs totaled 2,434,351,000, down 3.3 percent from 2,516,908,000 a year ago. Atlantic ASMs totaled 750,508,000, up 479.1 percent from 129,598,000.
 The airline flew 4,442,000 passengers in scheduled service in January, an increase of 2.8 percent from 4,321,000 customers flown a year earlier.
 Total cargo ton miles for January were 120,567,000, up 8.6 percent from 111,024,000 a year ago.
 Total RPMs including charter flights for January were 6,203,095,000, up 6.3 percent from 5,835,006,000 a year ago.
