United Airlines, Inc. is a major American airline headquartered in Chicago, Illinois. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of United Continental Holdings (formerly UAL Corporation) and the world's largest airline in terms of fleet size and number of destinations.The airline was founded in 1926 as "Varney Air Lines," it was renamed Boeing Air Transport in 1927 after it was acquired by aircraft manufacturer Boeing. United became an independent company in 1934, merging with Capital Airlines in 1961, and again with Continental Airlines in 2011.The carrier flew the first Contract Air Mail flight in the U.S. on April 6, 1926, marking the first scheduled airline service in the country's history. In 1927, airplane pioneer William Boeing founded his own airline, Boeing Air Transport to operate the San Francisco to Chicago air mail route, and began buying other airmail carriers including Varney Airlines.In 1929, Boeing merged his company with Pratt & Whitney to form the United Aircraft and Transport Corporation (UATC).In 1933, United began operating the Boeing 247, the first all-metal airliner. It was able to fly a transcontinental flight in 20 hours, making it significantly faster than its predecessors. After the war, United gained from a boom in customer demand for air travel, with its revenue passenger-miles jumping five-fold in the 1950s, and continued growth occurring through the next two decades. In 1954 United Airlines became the first airline to purchase modern flight simulators which had visual, sound and motion cues for training pilots.
