They were bankrupt as stated by one of their own cabin crew, just how they managed to continue functiiong I don't know, government help possibly.

Personally I don't think they are worth bothering with since you don't get paid while training which is just downright mean! :(

Copied from USA TODAY:

Timeline of United Airlines' bankruptcy
The Associated Press

Noteworthy dates in United Airlines' bankruptcy restructuring:
Dec. 9, 2002 — UAL's United Airlines files for Chapter 11 federal bankruptcy protection in Chicago. It remains the largest bankruptcy filing by an airline and was at the time the sixth-biggest by any U.S. company.

Feb. 13, 2003 — United says it intends to shift 30% of its U.S. capacity to a new low-cost carrier to compete with Southwest Airlines and other discount carriers.

April 21, 2003 — United starts charging for meals on flights.

May 1, 2003 — New labor contracts go into effect reducing labor costs by $2.56 billion annually for six years.

Feb. 12, 2004 — United launches its new Denver-based discount carrier, Ted.

June 28, 2004 — United loses third and final try for a government loan guarantee, forcing it to seek new financing.

Aug. 19, 2004 — United says in a bankruptcy filing that it likely will terminate and replace its employee pension plans.

Oct. 6, 2004 — United cuts domestic flight capacity by 12% and increases international capacity 14% amid intensifying discount-carrier competition in U.S. and more lucrative routes internationally.

Nov. 4, 2004 — CEO Glenn Tilton says record-high fuel costs mean United has no choice but to eliminate pensions and cut wages further to gain an additional $2 billion in reductions.

May 10, 2005 — Bankruptcy Judge Eugene Wedoff approves United's plan to terminate employee pensions, clearing the way for the largest corporate-pension default in American history.

July 21, 2005 — United completes second round of negotiated labor cuts in bankruptcy, adding another $700 million in annual labor savings.

Sept. 7, 2005 — United files reorganization plan outlining its intentions for repaying its debts and wiping out its stock. Forecasts nearly $1 billion operating profit in 2006 but based on oil prices falling to $50 a barrel.

Oct. 6, 2005 — United signs off on a $3 billion loan from JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Citigroup Inc. enabling it to exit bankruptcy.

Dec. 30, 2005 — United announces majority of creditors have voted for its reorganization plan.

Jan. 20, 2006 — Reorganization plan approved by bankruptcy court.

Feb. 1, 2006 — United emerging from bankruptcy after three years, 51 days.

Hero83,
Thanks for the information: that just confirms my thoughts: United have survived at the cost of conditions to their staff - not worth working for and never were. :(

Some of the pilots I met were less than happy and that was well before 9/11. :(
