The leggings incident was within UA company regulations and it's not even clear yet what exactly happened with the whole doctor debacle. Do you seriously think this has the same amount of impact to an airline as two hull losses? Unbelievable..

Disregarding the the hull losses that are non-UA related.... The only thing worse for UA aside from a hull loss them-self would be, failure to IDB a horde of deadheading zombies (the undead kind, not the stoner kind) resulting in the cannibalization of everyone on-board!
I honestly have no idea what else UA can do to shoot themselves in the foot, but hey, we're only quarter of the way in to the year, and there's plenty enough pax out there who can just as easily have gripes on AA and DL.

They introduce a new livery, and it gets dumped on by this website.

Likewise, back in 2014, two Malaysia Airlines 777 jets have crashed (Flight 370 disappearance on March 8, Flight 17 shootdown on July 17), causing decrease in bookings with MH and retirements of 777 fleet. TransAsia Airways was shut down following the crashes of flights 222 and 235 (both ATRs). What will happen to United next, given these dire consequences?
