PRNewswire-FirstCall CHICAGO Oct. 27 :
United Airlines (BULLETIN BOARD: UALAQ) today advised that travel
continues to be affected to and from major airports in the Southern
California due to wildfires in the region, with delays and possible
cancellations for Tuesday dependant upon the operational status of the
FAA`s Terminal Radar Approach Control Center in San Diego. Customers are
strongly advised to visit United`s website at http://www.united.com/ or to
call 800-824-6200 for information on cancelled or rescheduled flights.
As such, United has revised its travel policies for customers ticketed on
or before October 26, 2003 for travel through November 3, 2003 to or from
Los Angeles International Airport, Burbank Airport, John Wayne Airport
(Santa Ana), San Diego Airport and Ontario Airport on any United Airlines,
United Express or United codeshare flight.
For customers currently enroute who would like to return to their point of
origin, all rules and restrictions regarding standard change fees, day or
time applications, and/or minimum stay or Saturday night stay requirements
have been waived. Customers may be rebooked on any available flight in the
same class of service on or before November 15, 2003.

reschedule their travel between the same origin and destination without a
change fee. Rescheduled travel for the same itinerary must be completed on

restrictions in order to guarantee the original fare. Rescheduled travel
on flights and/or dates that do not meet the original restrictions may be

these same date and itinerary guidelines.
Customers who wish to apply tickets that meet these guidelines towards a
