United Continental Holdings Inc Research Report
United Continental's shares surged after the company reported that its passenger unit revenue increased in February by an estimated 6.5 to 7.5 percent. This is the company's third consecutive month of beating expectations, and a sharp improvement may still be in store for March. Busy traffic in the Pacific and Latin America continues to positively affect the company's revenue. United has also been improving its service, exceeding its 80 percent on time arrival record for domestic and international flights. Looking ahead, United expects that the most difficult aspects of its integration with Continental Airlines are already behind it, and expects this merger to start positively affecting the company's revenue soon. The company's significantly improved customer service also proves encouraging.

Delta Air Lines, Inc. Research Report
Delta Air Lines' unit revenue for February grew 5 percent versus the prior year. This was driven by continued corporate revenue gains, increased load factor and improved trans-Atlantic performance. Aside from this, the company announced that it will increase service at Los Angeles International Airport with daily year-round and seasonal service to 14 destinations, including eight new markets. According to Delta's senior vice president Bob Cortelyou, this is in line with the company's commitment to building a network that supports customer demand both locally and around the globe. This also positions Delta to be LA's preferred carrier. By meeting underserved demand and increased international traffic, Delta Airlines is poised for further revenue growth.
