United Airlines Q2 2022 Earnings Report Recap

United Airlines (UAL) Financial Results: Analysis

The Q2 FY 2022 earnings results given by United Airlines Holdings Inc. (UAL) fell well short of analysts' estimates. Since the start of the COVID-19 virus, the corporation has published its first adjusted earnings per share (EPS). However, adjusted EPS was still far below analyst estimates. Despite being the largest Q2 income in the history of the company, United's revenue fell short of expectations.

UAL Load Factor

The load factor for United Airlines increased significantly to 86.7 percent, easily above expert forecasts. The percentage of seats that are filled with paying customers on a carrier's available airplane is measured by the load factor, an important statistic in the airline industry. Airlines have a huge motivation to fill as many seats as possible by selling more tickets because the costs of taking an aircraft into flight are relatively the same whether there are 50 people aboard or 100. Higher load factors allow an airline to spread its fixed costs across a larger number of passengers, improving profitability. As of this month, United has not only recovered pre-pandemic levels but even exceeded them.

United Outlook and Stock Performance

According to United Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Scott Kirby, there are three main risks the company must address in the following six to 18 months. These include the possibility for a global downturn, record-high fuel prices, and sector-wide operational concerns that could reduce system capacity. The company enjoys more income due to these variables despite higher fuel prices and overall costs. Kirby stated that the business expects to reach its target of a 9% adjusted pretax profit in 2023.

Following the release of the earnings on Wednesday, shares of United stock fell by more than 7%. As of July 20, the shares of United have slightly underperformed the overall market over the preceding 12 months. Compared to the S&P 500's -8.9 percent total return during the same time period, United shares have produced a 1-year trailing total return of -10.0 percent.

On October 18, 2022, United Airlines is expected to announce its upcoming financial report for Q3 FY 2022.
