UNITED AIRLINES WILL ASSIST EN ROUTE AMTRAK PASSENGERS

 UNITED AIRLINES WILL ASSIST EN ROUTE AMTRAK PASSENGERS
 CHICAGO, June 24 /PRNewswire/ -- United Airlines announced today it


will assist en route Amtrak passengers impacted by the rail work stoppage by allowing them to purchase United's lowest available air fares on a one-way basis, waiving customary advance purchase and length of stay restrictions.
 "Many of Amtrak's customers are also United's customers," said James M. Guyette, executive vice president-marketing and planning at United. "In cooperation with Amtrak, United Airlines wants to assist all passengers who get caught up in the rail work stoppage in the middle of their itineraries."
 United said Amtrak customers must present (but not turn in) Amtrak tickets purchased before midnight EDT June 22, 1992, or an Amtrak application for a refund.
 They may purchase tickets for the same routing as they have on Amtrak or the one that comes closest to United's routing for travel on the same day as originally booked on Amtrak. Fares are subject to availability of the applicable booking class.
 Tickets and reservations must be obtained directly from United, not through travel agents. United's toll-free reservations telephone number is 800-241-6522.
 United's offer applies for travel on United and United Express carriers. It is valid through June 28, 1992, unless extended by United.
