Serving 362 destinations in 58 different countries, United Airlines boasts the most comprehensive global route network of any carrier in the world. With 4 734 daily departures, it’s no surprise that they carried a whopping 138 million passengers in 2014 alone.

United Airlines has a rich aviation history, finding its roots in the air mail service of Walter T. Varney that was launched between Nevada and Washington in 1926 and is ultimately a combination of carriers that have merged since the 1930s. The acquisition of Continental Airlines in 2010 was, however, the biggest of these mergers, ultimately boosting United’s reach and influence.
