Ted Takes to the Skies From Phoenix

  Ted, the new low-fare service from United, expanded its service today,
with flights between Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and Denver.
Ted offers Phoenix-area travelers a new, affordable way to fly. Ted will
offer eight daily roundtrips between Phoenix and Denver by the end of
March. Ted also began service today from Denver to Orlando, Fla. In addition to
Phoenix and Orlando, Ted currently offers service from Denver to Las
Vegas, Reno, New Orleans, Ft. Lauderdale and Ontario, Cal.; and between
San Francisco and Las Vegas. By the end of March, Ted also will offer
service between Los Angeles (LAX) and Las Vegas; and between San Francisco
and Phoenix. Beginning April 7, Ted will offer service from
Washington-Dulles to Las Vegas, Ft. Lauderdale, Tampa and Orlando.

“We’re pleased to now offer Ted service from Denver to Phoenix, a growing
leisure market,” said Sean Donohue, vice president of Ted. “We’re
confident that Phoenix customers will enjoy the great service and
simplified low fares highlighted on our website”

The relaxed and friendly Ted experience combines low fares with
outstanding service. In addition to more simplified, low fares, Ted offers
pre-assigned seats and exclusive onboard entertainment, dubbed
“Tedevision” and “Tedtunes.” Tedevision features a variety of programming
in keeping with Ted’s relaxed personality, including hit television shows
such as Friends, Scrubs, and My Wife and Kids; music videos from chart
toppers Jason Mraz, Coldplay and Liz Phair; and segments from Jay Leno,
Conan O’Brien and the Carson Daly show. Tedtunes features 15 channels of
music ranging from Latin, dance, club and easy listening to kids’ tunes.
Offering something for everyone, featured artists include Sarah McLachlan,
Seal, Martina McBride and Outkast.

In addition to complimentary beverage service, Ted’s favorite premium
beverages—Foster’s Lager and margaritas—and food items are available
for purchase on board. Ted customers on flights over two and a half hours
can enjoy food a-la-carte style from Bennigan’s On the Go, offering a
range of items including Salmon Caesar Salad, the County Cork Club
sandwich and Atkins Advantage bars for the carb conscious.
