In Wednesday’s announcement, United Airlines’ Chief Executive Officer, Scott Kirby, said,

“I am grateful to the United team that has fought through severe systemic challenges impacting all of global aviation to serve our customers. It's nice to return to profitability – but we must confront three risks that could grow over the next 6-18 months. Industry-wide operational challenges that limit the system's capacity, record fuel prices and the increasing possibility of a global recession are each real challenges that we are already addressing. These fundamental challenges have already led to higher costs, higher fuel prices, but also higher revenue, which means we're as confident as ever we will deliver on our 9 percent adjusted pre-tax margin target in 2023”
