History

The brainchild of aircraft pioneer William Boeing, United Airlines can trace its history back to 1926, making the company one of the oldest commercial airlines in America. With 721 aircraft and 86,852 employees, United is the sixth largest airline in the world and is based in Chicago, Illinois. In terms of passenger miles travelled, United is the largest airline in the world.

During 2017 the company flew 148 million passengers. Serving a total of 338 destinations, 122 of which are outside of the United States and spread throughout 48 countries, there are around 4,500 United Airlines flights each day. During 2016, the company reported an income of around $2.3 billion.

As United Airlines is an American company, it is not bound by EU regulations. This means that flight delay compensation regulations only apply to flights departing from the UK or the EU. It means if your flight from the UK is cancelled or has been overbooked, you are likely to be entitled to compensation. Inbound flights that are cancelled or delayed by more than 3 hours will not be covered as United Airlines compensation claims cannot be made under such circumstances.

According to aviation analysts OAG, United Airlines rank 7th in the world when it comes to punctuality with 79.68% of flights arriving on time.  Most such flights leaving the UK are either travelling to America or other long-haul destinations.
