United Airlines Files for Bankruptcy
United Airlines filed for chapter eleven early Monday morning, making it the largest bankruptcy in aviation history. Some passengers at the Lincoln airport say it doesn't come as a surprise. They say even before Monday's bankruptcy, they've had problems with their flights. United filed chapter eleven after losing 20-million dollars a day, mainly due to high labor costs. In the next couple months, passengers using major airports will see some changes in service. But people flying in and out of Lincoln won't be affected. Passengers should see no change at all in their daily operations, and tickets are still good all the flight's are still scheduled.
A United spokesman says union leaders will start talking about specific cost cuts Tuesday.
