ABSTRACT
The article reports that United Airlines Inc. has pushed back its timeline for exiting bankruptcy to the fall from the summer 2005. Judge Eugene Wedoff, during a hearing in Chicago on Friday, approved an amendment in the airline's debtor-in-possession financing with several banks that extends the maturity date through September 2005. The loan is being provided by J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., Citigroup Inc., CIT Group Inc., and GE Capital. The airline has failed to return to profitability due in part to high crude oil prices. The carrier, a division of Elk Grove Village, Ill.-based UAL Corp. is trying to rid itself of its traditional employee pension plans to achieve the savings needed to exit bankruptcy.
