Ted Goes to Washington

United`s new low-fare carrier Ted is expanding with service into United`s
Washington-Dulles hub. From Washington-Dulles, Ted will offer service to
Ft. Lauderdale, Orlando, Tampa and Las Vegas. Ft. Lauderdale is a brand
new market for United from Dulles, while Orlando, Tampa and Las Vegas are
existing United routes that are transitioning to Ted. Bringing Ted service
to Dulles is the latest in a series of actions by United that illustrate
the airline`s strong commitment to the Washington, DC market.

Tickets for Ted flights out of Dulles will go on sale on Saturday,
February 7, 2004, and the distinct blue and orange planes will take to the
skies from Dulles beginning April 7. With three roundtrips per day to
start, Ted service will quickly expand to 15 roundtrips per day from
Dulles by mid May, representing 22% of United`s domestic mainline flying
from Washington-Dulles.
“We are very excited to be adding Ted service to and from Washington-
Dulles,” said Sean Donohue, vice president, Ted. “The addition of this new
hub provides us with the opportunity to bring the affordable and enjoyable
Ted flight experience to the Washington D.C. market.”

“United has long been committed to the Washington D.C. metropolitan area,
making Ted`s second hub of Washington-Dulles a natural choice,” said Pete
McDonald, executive vice president - Operations. “With United already
serving more international and domestic destinations, with more departures
from the Washington area than any other airline, the addition of Ted
service provides Dulles customers with another dependable way to travel at
affordable prices with flight schedules that suit their needs.”

The Ted fleet flying out of Dulles will feature the popular Airbus A320,
each with 156 seats, featuring a 66-seat Economy Plus section with four
extra inches of legroom. All Ted passengers can earn Mileage Plus miles
for their Ted flights and will have access to United`s variety of Easy
products including EasyCheck-In and EasyUpdate.

Ted brings a relaxed, casual, and hassle-free flight experience to the
low-fare travel marketplace, complete with pre-assigned seating and
exclusive onboard entertainment. Ted fliers can enjoy overhead programming
called “Tedevision,” which offers an array of selections ranging from
music videos and stand-up comedy, to sitcoms. “Tedtunes” is also
