United sees $1.5 billion less revenue in March vs last year, warns things getting worse

CHICAGO (Reuters) - United Airlines Holdings (UAL.O) told employees on Sunday that it expects to book $1.5 billion less revenue in March than the same time last year, and is taking further measures to address a situation it said is getting worse.

In a memo, United said it would cut corporate officers’ salaries by 50% and reduce flight capacity by about 50% in April and May, with deep capacity cuts also expected into the summer travel period.

“Even with those cuts, we’re expecting load factors to drop into the 20-30% range — and that’s if things don’t get worse,” United Chief Executive Oscar Munoz and President Scott Kirby said in the memo.
