United Offers Help to NTA Members
August 26, 2005 – United Airlines is offering assistance for NTA members affected by the Northwest mechanics strike. United will accommodate Northwest Airlines passengers holding paper tickets valid for travel on Northwest Airlines or one of its domestic codeshare partners. Travel on United must match the passengers’ ticketed itinerary, including travel dates. In circumstances where a passenger cannot be rerouted to the destination shown on their original ticket, United will accept tickets to and from an alternate destination that is within a 300-mile radius of the original ticketed city.

Northwest customers holding e-tickets can obtain a paper ticket from Northwest Airlines or their travel agent.

For more information on re-accommodation options, customers can visit or call 1-800-UNITED1.

In other United news, the airline reported an operating profit of $113 million for July 2005. This represents a $62 million improvement in operating profit over the same period last year, despite a 46 percent increase in fuel prices for mainline and express operations.
