Would you report the loss related to the terrorist attacks separately in the income statement? If…

On September 11, 2001, two United Air Lines aircraft were hijacked and destroyed in terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City and in a crash near Johnstown,Pennsylvania. In addition to the loss of all passengers and crew on board the aircraft, these attacks resulted in numerous deaths and injuries to persons on the ground and massive property damage. In the immediate  ftermath of the attacks, the FAA ordered all aircraft operating in the United States grounded immediately. This grounding effectively lasted for three days, and United was able to operate only a portion of its scheduled flights for several days thereafter. Passenger traffic and yields on United’s flights declined significantly when flights were permitted to resume, and United refunded significant numbers of tickets for the period from September 11 to September 25.
