1 1 Impacts of FOD & Wildlife Heathrow FOD Conference JJ DeGiovanni United Airlines Managing Director – Ground Safety 1(847) 700 – 4600 November 9, 2010

2 2 Agenda Space Shuttle Clip Philosophy & Program Impact to the Airline Strategy Airport Authority

3 3 Shuttle Clip

4 4 Philosophy and FOD/ Wildlife Program Our Philosophy: Run a world class airline, always with a safety mindset to operate effectively and efficiently. Our FOD & Wildlife Program: Mitigate and reduce the risk of personnel / customer injury and aircraft damage. - Fly Safe (Safe Airline, Safe Customers) - Improve Reliability - Reduce Cost Impacts

5 5 Airline Impact $113 Million Annual Impact Tires (FOD)WildlifeEngines / CowlsHangar $4.3 Million122 Reported Events $102 Million110 Days Out of Service

6 Tire FOD Events 916 Tires Damaged replaced Estimated Tires Replaced cost to the airline = $4.5 Mil Average Tire Cost = $4,900

7 7 Wildlife Reporting FY2009 Top Stations on FSAP Reports DEN = 20 ORD = 18 IAD = 11 SFO = FSAP Reports Cyclical Curve

8 Out of Service Events FOD & Wildlife 37 aircraft out-of-service Peak months due to bird migration Out-of-service time cost $1.2 Million Global Bird Migration

9 9 Engine Cost Impact 2009 Blended / Replaced Blades $2.3 Million (Est.) Engines Pulled $85 Million (Est.) Engine Cowl Damaged $17.5 Million (Est.) Total = $113 Million

10 10 Reliability Impacts 2009 FODWildlife Customers Scores Ferry Costs Crews Re- schedule Maintenance Cost Parts Availability Re-Allocating Aircraft Out of Service Time Vendor Maintenance Overtime Industry Performance Hotel Cost Flight Cancellation Customers Affected Flight Revenue Aircraft Inspection / Repair Re-Allocating Aircraft

11 11 F1 Racing Video

12 12 FOD Curiosities Most Abstract FOD Items It comes in every shape & size... FOD In Other Industries Who Wouldve Thought… Snake in Landing GearBaggage Container AC Unit HoseBald Eagle on Runway Bolts, screws, metal pieces Bag Scanner Saw Horse Rag in Engine Space DebrisWildlife on Roads Medical Field Space Shuttle Debris Construction Field Food IndustryWater Overloaded Trucks

13 13 STATION MANAGEMENT AIRPORT AUTHORITY EMPLOYEE Structure Alignment Subject Matter Expert System wide Program Tracking Station Support Framework of Operations Execution / Enforcement / Engagement Mitigation Program management Event reporting & Investigation Airline Alignment Cross Boundary Issues Communications, Authority FOD Free Ramp Event Reporting Accountability Clean Workable Product Outcome… CORPORATE / DIVISIONAL FOD & Wildlife Program Structure Hierarchical Approach Input…

14 14 FOD & Wildlife Program Inputs: D ata reporting / analyses (ERS) Program execution Training Vendor management Communication Information access Objective –Controllable cost, and not a cost of doing business. Metrics –Determine risk. –Effectiveness, Take Action Methodology –Each station FOD and Wildlife plan – Active Engagement –Focus resources at locations where risks are the highest. What this program covers: Ground Induced FOD, Airfield Wildlife Maintenance (tools, hangar space) Weather – Ice, Snow, Hail

15 15 Our Priorities Always with a Safety Mindset… Safe Reliable Airline Controlled Approach Predictable Outcome Wildlife Safety of Flight Mitigation Bias for Action Ramp Safety of Personnel Dont Inflict Pain Clean Work Environment Weather Safety of Personnel/Customers DTN (Prediction) Reliability

16 16 Corporate Strategy Corporate Responsible of maintaining the Corporate Policy SME support to station management Helping to Develop mediation plans Recommendations & guidance for mitigation Event reporting tools (Damage, FAA) Communications, data analysis, trends Interaction with Airport Authorities & Government Agencies Event Reporting System Trends / Analyses Station Reporting Airport Authority USDA FAA

17 17 Station Management Daily Due Diligence Policy and Programs Execution / Responsibility –Employee Coaching and Training –Root Cause / Forensic Analyses –Pre Arrival / Departure checks Performance –Trends –Event Reporting / Investigating Direct Communication –Airport Authority, USDA, FAA Safety Meetings –Direct Interaction with Airport Authority –Participate in Monthly meeting, FOD walks –Safety Concerns / Awareness (Gate Areas) ERS – Event Reporting System Monthly Reports by Station

18 18 General Housekeeping Pre-Arrival / Departure FOD Checks FOD Walks FOD Buckets FOD Boss Checklists / Consistency FOD Publications (UA / Airport Authority) Supervisor Monitoring / Coaching Wildlife – Airport Authority Pre Task Briefings Clean Work Environment Arrival/departure Checks FOD Boss / Sweepers Publications / Communications FOD Walks Checklists Day to Day Operations

19 19 Wildlife February / September Ramp up Reports / Trends by Location Ride Alongs Discuss Events Communicate –Everyone Involvement –Competitors Shared Information (ATA)

20 20 Airport Authority Priorities – General Housekeeping Efforts – Construction – Events – Damages – Technology to Improve Reliability – Communication of Share Events – Transparency – Potential Impacts Interior / Exterior to Airports FOD / Wildlife Free Airports

21 21 Weather Better Protect: Our Customers / Our Planes / Our People Increase Airline Reliability DTN Addresses: –Severe Weather –Hail / High Winds –Dust Storms –Lightning –Ice / Snow (Blade Damage) Real Time Notification –Accurate Weather Forecast –Alerts to PDAs / text / Currently in Use by Airport Ops, Maintenance, Ops Control

22 22 Innovated Technology Radar Technology (BOS) FOD Camera Technology (ORD) Airport Bird Radar DNA / USDA FOD Boss at Stations

23 23 FOD Forensics Finds Address Found on Arrival (FOA) damage. Speed Tape Samples The results pointed to 300 series Stainless Steel Landing gear threw FOD into Cowling Spectral Analysis

24 24 Maintenance Communicate Policy and Programs Execution / Responsibility Tool Controls –Tools box inventory, Accountability –Post Maintenance housekeeping –Daily Sweeps / FOD Boss, FOD Walks –FOD Management – Vendors –Clean as you go, Area FOD-Free

25 25 Communications Event Notification /investigation –Trends / Reporting –Seasonality –Locations USDA –Specific Plan to Control Species Monthly Reports –Call to Action FOD Flyer –Awareness –All Levels FSAPS – Pilot Bird/FOD Event Reporting

26 26 Eco-Power Wash Is Carbon Soot – FOD? Engine Build-up – Impacts Efficiency Results in higher fuel burn & more CO 2 Hot purified water flush Savings 3 million gallons of fuel and nearly 30,000 metric tones of CO 2 per year. 6.8 Million gals or $26.6 Million Thinking Green

27 27 In Summary – Safety of Flight / People – Integration – Proactive – Ensure of Success – Due Daily Diligence

28 28 Monty Python

29 29 In Summary – Safety of Flight / People – Integration – Proactive – Ensure of Success – Due Daily Diligence
