United Airlines and a group of pilots have reached a settlement to resolve a dispute over the fees the airline pays them for flying the large jets. The settlement will be spelled out in a tentative agreement that the two sides are due to vote on next week. But it will still allow the pilots to vote on ratifying the agreement. The pilots have been fighting over their obligations under the Air Transport Association (ATA), which represents airlines. Pilots sought to opt out of that contract but ATA, the major airline group, opposed that move, saying a negotiated deal between the pilots and the airline would be preferable. United said it lost $1.8 billion last quarter, a staggering figure. This is the first time the airline has broken that type of profit down into its main operations, by segment. Its largest segment, and its one that costs the most money, is the basic salaries and benefits for its pilots. In 2017, basic salaries and benefits there were $1.8 billion;

United also said it expects operating margin this year of 7 percent, up from last year’s 5.8 percent.
