Dec 10 United Continental Holdings said
on Monday that disruptions to the airline tied to Superstorm
Sandy reduced November revenue by about $50 million.
The company said passenger revenue per available seat mile,
or unit revenue, fell an estimated 1 to 2 percent last month
from a year earlier, including feeder carriers. United said that
key industry measure was reduced in November because of Sandy,
which barreled through the U.S. Northeast in late October and
prompted shutdowns at major New York area airports.
United has a big hub at Newark Liberty International Airport
in New Jersey. Last month, it said Sandy hurt October revenue by
about $90 million and profit in that month by about $35 million.
