History of United Airlines

United Airlines is one of the oldest airlines in America. The airline officially launched with cheap flights to Washington in 1926. This was the first scheduled air service route established in the USA. One of the first incidents of airline terrorism took place in 1933 when a United Airlines plane crashed due to a bomb in the baggage compartment. In the early 19990s United began operating cheap flights to London from Chicago. On September 11th, 2001 two United Airlines flights were involved in the hijacked terrorist attack on New York. More recently United has been performing maintenance on their fleet to cut gas emission and fuel consumption.
