UNITED AIRLINES WILL ACCEPT MIDWAY TICKETS
UNITED AIRLINES WILL ACCEPT MIDWAY TICKETS CHICAGO, Nov. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- United Airlines today announced
that it will transport passengers currently holding Midway Airlines revenue tickets at no additional charge to the travelers.
Stephen M. Wolf, chairman and president of United, said, "We are deeply saddened that a respected competitor, which shares our hometown of Chicago, has been forced to suspend its operations in this most difficult economic environment. To assist Midway passengers in meeting their travel needs, United is immediately making the resources of our airline available to them." United's offer to transport Midway's ticketholders applies exclusively to United's flights to and from Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, where United operates more than 400 daily departures non-stop to more than 100 destinations. Travel on United must be for the same itinerary and travel dates as the original Midway ticket. Passengers wishing to apply their Midway tickets to United flights may make reservations, but only within three days of their travel date. All travel will be in economy class only, and reservations must be made in a specific booking class in which seats will be limited. Passengers who are unable to obtain confirmed reservations in the appropriate booking class will be allowed to standby for United flights on the same day as originally confirmed on Midway. United will accept all of Midway's revenue tickets issued prior to Midway's cessation of operations that call for travel to be completed by Jan. 15, 1992, provided that space is available on United. United noted that its flights to Florida and its flights around the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays are already very heavily booked. However, United anticipates that for other than these extreme peak situations, it will be able to accommodate the vast majority of Midway's passengers. Midway passengers traveling on United as a result of United accepting their Midway tickets will earn credit for their United flight in United's Mileage Plus frequent flier program, whether they are current members of the program or they enroll on their date of travel on United. Free Midway tickets, Midway frequent flier award tickets and Midway's travel industry discount tickets are excluded, and will not be accepted for United travel. Travelers can reach United's reservations office in Chicago by calling 312-825-2525 or nationally by calling 800-241-6522. -0- 11/14/91 /CONTACT: Lynn Martenstein, 708-952-4935; Joe Hopkins, 708-952-5770; or Ann Thoma (investors), 708-952-7501, all of United Airlines, or after hours, United Airlines corporate communications, 708-952-4088/ (UAL) CO: United Airlines; Midway Airlines ST: Illinois IN: AIR SU: GK -- NY021 -- 4288 11/14/91 09:28 EST
