16:50 EDTUALUnited Continental January consolidated traffic up 0.1%
UAL's January 2016 consolidated traffic, revenue passenger miles, increased 0.1 percent and consolidated capacity, available seat miles, decreased 0.1 percent versus January 2015. UAL's January 2016 consolidated load factor increased 0.2 points compared to January 2015. The company continues to expect first-quarter 2016 consolidated passenger unit revenue to decline 6 to 8 percent compared to the first quarter of 2015, with the decline driven largely by a strong U.S. dollar, lower surcharges, travel reductions from customers impacted by declining oil prices and softening domestic and international yields.

06:26 EDTLUV, UAL, DALAmerican Airlines stock price too low, WSJ says
The sharp drop in oil prices has come to the benefit of the four major U.S. airline carriers, which account for approximately 80% of the domestic air-travel market, Steven Russolillo of the Wall Street Journal's Ahead of the Tape reports. United Continental (UAL) and Southwest Airlines (LUV) already reported record Q4 earnings, and Delta (DAL) recently reported a quarterly profit as well, the report says. American Airlines (AAL) is slated to reported Q4 results, which are expected to be upbeat, the Journal says. The stock prices of such companies, however, suggests that investors aren't experiencing the full benefits due to weakness with the industry's boom-and-bust nature, the report says. American Airlines's share price, in particular, is too low, and its stock has fallen too much relative to competitors ahead of quarterly results, the report says. Reference Link
