At the start of 2018, United CEO Oscar Munoz outlined a multi-year growth strategy with great promise. By year’s end—after boasting the industry’s best revenue growth—it looks like the airline has begun to deliver. Its $41 billion in annual revenue was up 9.5% from the year prior, good for $2.1 billion in annual profits. The Chicago company also transported more passengers than ever in 2018, the result of an operationally high-flying year that saw it cut pre-6 a.m. flights by 50% and move around 33 aircraft for better margins. Customers have noticed: Passenger revenue climbed 11.3% in the fourth quarter, a possible sign of things to come.
