Prospects for United Airlines
February 6, 2003

United Airlines faces an uncertain future as it grapples with bankruptcy, labor disputes, and a slumping economy. What factors contributed to the decline of the nation's second-largest airline and how will its troubles affect the rest of the industry? Leading economists and industry experts met to address these questions at an event co-hosted by Chicago GSB and the University of Chicago Law School.
