"Last quarter, our employees came together to keep our operation moving through three historic storms, including recording our best consolidated on-time departure performance ever for the month of September," said Scott Kirby, president of United Airlines. "Our team accomplished this while leading one of the largest relief and recovery efforts in our company's history. To date, United has provided cargo capacity and flights to deliver over 1.5 million pounds of relief supplies to people in need in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean. And thanks to generous donations from our customers and employees with supporting funds from the company, our CrowdRise fundraising campaign has raised more than $3 million to support our humanitarian aid and disaster relief partners."
