NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the obligations contained herein, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties hereto hereby agree as follows:
 
 
SECTION 1.1 Acceptance of Depositary.  The Depositary hereby agrees to act as depositary bank as provided herein and in connection therewith to accept all amounts to be delivered to or held by the Depositary pursuant to the terms of this Agreement.  The Depositary further agrees to hold, maintain and safeguard the Deposits and the Accounts (as defined below) during the term of this Agreement in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement.  The Escrow Agent shall not have any right to withdraw, assign or otherwise transfer moneys held in the Accounts except as permitted by this Agreement.
 
SECTION 1.2 Establishment of Accounts.  The Escrow Agent hereby instructs the Depositary, and the Depositary agrees, to establish the separate deposit accounts listed on Schedule I hereto and to establish such additional separate deposit accounts as may be required in connection with the deposits contemplated by Section 2.4 hereof (each, an “Account” and collectively, the “Accounts”), each in the name of the Escrow Agent and all on the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement.
 
 
SECTION 2.1 Deposits.  The Escrow Agent shall direct the Underwriters to deposit with the Depositary on the date of this Agreement (the “Deposit Date”) in Federal (same day) funds by wire transfer to: BNP PARIBAS NY, 787 7th Avenue, New York, NY 10019, BIC BNPAUS3N, ABA No. 026007689, Account No. 00200 522002 434 50, Reference: United 2014-2 EETC Depositary (Class B), and the Depositary shall accept from the Underwriters, on behalf of the Escrow Agent, the sum of US$238,418,000.  Upon acceptance of such sum, the Depositary shall (i) establish each of the deposits specified in Schedule I hereto maturing on November 30, 2015 (including any deposit made pursuant to Section 2.4 hereof, individually, a “Deposit” and, collectively, the “Deposits”) and (ii) credit each Deposit to the related Account as set forth therein.  No amount shall be deposited in any Account other than the related Deposit.

SECTION 2.3 Withdrawals.  (a)  The Escrow Agent may, by providing at least two Business Days’ (or if the Depositary shall agree, one Business Day’s) prior notice of withdrawal to the Depositary in the form of Exhibit A hereto (a “Notice of Purchase Withdrawal”), withdraw not less than the entire balance of such Deposit, except that at any time prior to the actual withdrawal of such Deposit, the Escrow Agent may, by notice to the Depositary, cancel such withdrawal (including on the scheduled date therefor), and thereafter such Deposit shall continue to be maintained by the Depositary in accordance with the original terms thereof.  Following such withdrawal the balance in the related Account shall be zero and the Depositary shall close such Account.  As used herein, “Business Day” means any day, other than a Saturday, Sunday or other day on which commercial banks are authorized or required by law to close in New York, New York, Chicago, Illinois, or Wilmington, Delaware.
 
(b) (i)  The Escrow Agent may, by providing at least 15 days’ prior notice of withdrawal to the Depositary in the form of Exhibit B hereto (a “Notice of Final Withdrawal”), withdraw the entire amount of all of the remaining Deposits together with the payment by the Depositary of all accrued and unpaid interest on such Deposits to but excluding the specified date of withdrawal (a “Final Withdrawal”), on such date as shall be specified in such Notice of Final Withdrawal.  If a Notice of Final Withdrawal has not been given to the Depositary on or before November 10, 2015 (provided that, if a labor strike occurs or continues at either The Boeing Company or Embraer S.A. after the Issuance Date and on or prior to October 31, 2015 (a “Labor Strike”), such date shall be extended by adding thereto the number of days that such strike continued in effect after the Issuance Date, but not more than 60 days (the “Additional Days”)) (provided that the Additional Days shall not include any day of a Labor Strike (1) at The Boeing Company after the Pass Through Trustee shall have purchased in accordance with the Note Purchase Agreement Equipment Notes with respect to 11 Boeing 737-924ER aircraft and four Boeing 787-9 aircraft or (2) at Embraer S.A. after the Pass Through Trustee shall have purchased in accordance with the Note Purchase Agreement Equipment Notes with respect to 12 Embraer ERJ 175 LR aircraft) and there are unwithdrawn Deposits on such date, the Depositary shall pay the amount of the Final Withdrawal to the Paying Agent on November 30, 2015 (provided that if a Labor Strike occurs or continues, such date shall be extended by the Additional Days).
 
(ii) The Escrow Agent may, by providing at least five Business Days’ prior notice of withdrawal to the Depositary in the form of Exhibit C hereto (a “Notice of Replacement Withdrawal”), withdraw the entire amount of all Deposits then held by the Depositary together with all accrued and unpaid interest on such Deposits (including Deposits previously withdrawn pursuant to a Notice of Purchase Withdrawal) to but excluding the specified date of withdrawal (a “Replacement Withdrawal”), on such date as shall be specified in such Notice of Replacement Withdrawal.
 
(c) If the Depositary receives a duly completed Notice of Purchase Withdrawal, Notice of Final Withdrawal or Notice of Replacement Withdrawal (each, a “Withdrawal Notice”) complying with the provisions of this Agreement, it shall make the payments specified therein in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, in no event shall the Depositary be required, pursuant to any Withdrawal Notice or otherwise, to make payments hereunder on or in respect of any Deposit in excess of the amount of such Deposit together with accrued interest thereon as provided in this Agreement.
 
SECTION 2.4 Other Accounts.  On the date of withdrawal of any Deposit (other than the date of the Final Withdrawal or Replacement Withdrawal), the Escrow Agent, or the Pass Through Trustee on behalf of the Escrow Agent, shall re-deposit with the Depositary any portion thereof not used to acquire Equipment Notes and the Depositary shall accept the same for deposit hereunder.  Any sums so received for deposit shall be established as a new Deposit and credited to a new Account, all as more fully provided in Section 2.1 hereof, and thereafter the provisions of this Agreement shall apply thereto as fully and with the same force and effect as if such Deposit had been established on the Deposit Date except that such Deposit shall mature on November 30, 2015 (provided that if a Labor Strike occurs or continues, such date shall be extended by the Additional Days) and bear interest as provided in Section 2.2.  The Depositary shall promptly give notice to the Escrow Agent of receipt of each such re-deposit and the account number assigned thereto.
 
SECTION 3. Termination.  This Agreement shall terminate on the fifth Business Day after the later of the date on which (i) all of the Deposits shall have been withdrawn and paid as provided herein without any re-deposit and (ii) all accrued and unpaid interest on the Deposits shall have been paid as provided herein, but in no event prior to the date on which the Depositary shall have performed in full its obligations hereunder.
 
SECTION 4. Payments.  All payments (including, without limitation, those payments made in respect of Taxes (as defined and provided for below)) made by the Depositary hereunder shall be paid in United States Dollars and immediately available funds by wire transfer (i) in the case of accrued interest on the Deposits payable under Section 2.2 hereof or any Final Withdrawal, directly to the Paying Agent at Wilmington Trust, National Association, Wilmington, DE, ABA# 031100092, Account No. 109133-000, Attention: Chad May, Telephone No.: (302) 636-6291, Reference: United Airlines PTT, Series 2014-2B, or to such other account as the Paying Agent may direct from time to time in writing to the Depositary and the Escrow Agent and (ii) in the case of any withdrawal of one or more Deposits pursuant to a Notice of Purchase Withdrawal or Notice of Replacement Withdrawal, directly to or as directed by the Escrow Agent as specified and in the manner provided in such Notice of Purchase Withdrawal or Notice of Replacement Withdrawal.  The Depositary hereby waives any and all rights of set-off, combination of accounts, right of retention or similar right (whether arising under applicable law, contract or otherwise) it may have against the Deposits howsoever arising.  All payments on or in respect of each Deposit shall be made free and clear of and without reduction for or on account of any and all taxes, levies or other impositions or charges (collectively, “Taxes”).  However, if the Depositary shall be required by law to deduct or withhold any Taxes from or in respect of any sum payable hereunder, the Depositary shall (i) make such deductions or withholding, (ii) pay the full amount deducted or withheld (including in respect of such additional amounts) to the competent taxation authority and (iii) if the Taxes required to be deducted or withheld are imposed by France or any political subdivision thereof (other than pursuant to any inter-governmental agreement with the United States pursuant to FATCA or under implementing legislation or administrative rules thereunder), pay such additional amounts

 
-4-



 
as may be necessary in order that the actual amount received by the designated recipient of such sum under this Agreement or the Escrow and Paying Agent Agreement after such deduction or withholding equals the sum it would have received had no such deduction or withholding been required.  If the date on which any payment due on any Deposit would otherwise fall on a day which is not a Business Day, such payment shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day, and no additional interest shall accrue in respect of such extension.  For the purposes of this Section 4, “FATCA” means Sections 1471 through 1474 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as of the date of this Agreement (or any amended or successor version that is substantively comparable and not materially more onerous to comply with) and any current or future regulations thereunder or official interpretations thereof or agreement entered into with a U.S. government entity relating thereto (including an intergovernmental agreement, as well as, to the extent relating to withholding of U.S. taxes, any regulations or official guidance provided by a U.S. or non-U.S. government entity related to an intergovernmental agreement).
 
SECTION 5. Representation and Warranties.  The Depositary hereby represents and warrants to United, the Escrow Agent, the Pass Through Trustee and the Paying Agent that:

SECTION 15. Rights of Receiptholders.  The Depositary acknowledges that, if the Depositary shall fail to pay when due hereunder any interest on the Deposits or the Final Withdrawal, the “Receiptholders” (as defined in the Escrow and Paying Agent Agreement) shall have the right to claim directly against the Depositary as provided in Section 15 of the Escrow and Paying Agent Agreement and that any such claim shall not be subject to defenses that the Depositary may have against the Escrow Agent.
 
SECTION 16. Miscellaneous.  (a)  The Depositary shall have only those duties as are specifically and expressly provided herein and no other duties shall be implied.  The Depositary may rely upon and shall not be liable for acting or refraining from acting upon any written notice, document, instruction or request furnished to it hereunder and believed by it to be genuine and to have been signed or presented by the Escrow Agent without inquiry and without requiring substantiating evidence of any kind.  The Depositary shall be under no duty to inquire into or investigate the validity, accuracy or content of any such document, notice, instruction or request.  The Depositary shall have no duty to solicit any payments, including, without limitation, the Deposits.
 
(b) The Depositary shall not be liable for any action taken, suffered or omitted to be taken by it in good faith except to the extent that a final adjudication of a court of competent jurisdiction determines that the Depositary’s gross negligence or willful misconduct was the primary cause of any loss.  The Depositary may execute any of its powers and perform any of its duties hereunder directly or through attorneys, and shall be liable only for its gross negligence or willful misconduct (as finally adjudicated in a court of competent jurisdiction) in the selection of any such attorney.  The Depositary may consult with counsel, accountants and other skilled persons to be selected and retained by it.  The Depositary shall not be liable for any action taken, suffered or omitted to be taken by it in accordance with, or in reliance upon, the advice or opinion of any such counsel, accountants or other skilled persons.  In the event that the Depositary shall be uncertain or believe there is some ambiguity as to its duties or rights hereunder or shall receive instructions, claims or demands from any party hereto which, in its opinion, conflict with any of the provisions of this Agreement, it shall be entitled to refrain from taking any action and its sole obligation shall be to keep safely all property held hereunder until it shall be given a direction in writing by the Escrow Agent which eliminates such ambiguity or uncertainty to the satisfaction of Depositary or by a final and non-appealable order or judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction.  Anything in this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, in no event shall the Depositary be liable for special, incidental, punitive, indirect or consequential loss or damage of any kind whatsoever (including but not limited to lost profits), even if the Depositary has been advised of the likelihood of such loss or damage and regardless of the form of action.  In the event of any conflict or inconsistency between any provision in this Agreement and a provision in any other document, the provisions of this Agreement shall control.

(d) (i) Section 326 of the Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001 (“USA PATRIOT Act”) requires the Depositary to implement reasonable procedures to verify the identity of any person that opens a new account with it.  Accordingly, the Escrow Agent acknowledges that Section 326 of the USA PATRIOT Act and the Depositary’s identity verification procedures require the Depositary to obtain information which may be used to confirm the Escrow Agent’s identity including without limitation name, address and organizational documents (“identifying information”). The Escrow Agent agrees to provide the Depositary with and consent to the Depositary obtaining from third parties any such identifying information required as a condition of opening an account with or using any service provided by the Depositary.
 
(ii) Depositary agrees that upon the reasonable request of the Escrow Agent, it will provide to the Escrow Agent such information and documents as the Escrow Agent may require (x) to satisfy applicable anti-money laundering laws and regulations, including the USA PATRIOT Act, the regulations administered by the U.S. Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”), and other applicable U.S. anti-money laundering laws and regulations (collectively, the “anti-money laundering/OFAC laws”), or (y) to meet the requirements of the Escrow Agent’s internal know your customer policies and procedures adopted in accordance with the anti-money laundering/OFAC laws.

(f) No party to this Agreement is liable to any other party for losses due to, or if it is unable to perform its obligations under the terms of this Agreement because of, acts of God, fire, war, terrorism, floods, strikes, electrical outages, equipment or transmission failure, or other causes reasonably beyond its control.  If any provision of this Agreement is determined to be prohibited or unenforceable by reason of any applicable law of a jurisdiction, then such provision shall, as to such jurisdiction, be ineffective to the extent of such prohibition or unenforceability without invalidating the remaining provisions thereof, and any such prohibition or unenforceability in such jurisdiction shall not invalidate or render unenforceable such provisions in any other jurisdiction.

SECTION 17. Security Procedures With respect to all funds transfer instructions that are given pursuant to this Agreement (other than in writing at the time of execution of this Agreement), whether in writing, by facsimile or otherwise, the Depositary is authorized to seek confirmation of such instructions by telephone call-back to the person or persons designated on Schedule II hereto (“Schedule II”), and the Depositary may rely upon the confirmation of anyone purporting to be the person or persons so designated.  Each funds transfer instruction shall be executed by an authorized signatory, a list of such authorized signatories is set forth on Schedule II.  The persons and telephone numbers for call-backs may be changed only in a writing actually received and acknowledged by the Depositary.  If the Depositary is unable to contact any of the authorized representatives identified in Schedule II, the Depositary is hereby authorized to seek confirmation of such instructions by telephone call-back to any one or more of Escrow Agent’s executive officers (“Executive Officers”), as the case may be, which shall include the titles of Assistant Vice President or Vice President, as the Depositary may select.  Such “Executive Officer” shall deliver to the Depositary a fully executed incumbency certificate, and the Depositary may rely upon the confirmation of anyone purporting to be any such officer. The Depositary and the beneficiary's bank in any funds transfer may rely solely upon any account numbers or similar identifying numbers provided by the Escrow Agent to identify (a) the beneficiary, (b) the beneficiary's bank, or (c) an intermediary bank.  The Depositary may apply any of the funds for any payment order it executes using any such identifying number, even when its use may result in a person other than the beneficiary being paid, or the transfer of funds to a bank other than the beneficiary's bank or an intermediary bank designated. The Escrow Agent acknowledges that these security procedures are commercially reasonable.
