PR Newswire

FORT WORTH, Texas, Nov. 8, 2012

FORT WORTH, Texas, Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- AMR Corporation today reported
October 2012 consolidated revenue and traffic results for its principal
subsidiary, American Airlines, Inc., and its wholly owned subsidiary, AMR
Eagle Holding Corporation.

Consolidated capacity and traffic were 3.4 percent and 3.7 percent lower
year-over-year respectively, resulting in a consolidated load factor of 82.3
percent, a decrease of 0.3 points versus the same period last year.

International load factor increased 0.5 points to 81.3 percent, as traffic
decreased 0.6 percent on 1.2 percent less capacity. The Pacific entity
recorded the highest year-over-year increase in load factor of 4.9 points,
resulting in a load factor of 82.8 percent for the month of October.

Domestic capacity and traffic were 5.0 percent and 6.0 percent lower
year-over-year, respectively, resulting in a domestic load factor of 84.0
percent, 0.9 points lower compared to the same period last year.

October's consolidated passenger revenue per available seat mile (PRASM)
increased an estimated 0.4 percent versus the same period last year. Absent
the recent operational disruption that affected bookings for October travel,
PRASM would have been approximately 3.1 percent higher than in October 2011.
Separately, American Airlines and American Eagle cancelled more than 2,000
flights as a result of Hurricane Sandy; however, the impact on PRASM was not
significant.

"I'm proud of the spirit and resilience of our people, many of whom have been
displaced or suffered home or property damage following Hurricane Sandy. Under
very challenging conditions, they have worked diligently to restore our
operations in the Northeast and care for our customers," said Tom Horton,
chairman and CEO, AMR Corporation.

On a consolidated basis, the company boarded 8.8 million passengers in
October.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements and Information
This news release could be viewed as containing forward-looking statements or
information. Actual results may differ materially from the results suggested
by the statements and information contained herein for a number of reasons,
including, but not limited to, the impact of the bankruptcy filings of the
Company and certain of its U.S. subsidiaries, the Company's ability to
refinance, extend or repay its near and intermediate term debt, the Company's
substantial level of indebtedness and related interest rates, the potential
impact of volatile and rising fuel prices, impairments and restructuring
charges. The Company cannot predict what the ultimate value of any of its
securities may be or whether holders of any such securities will receive any
distribution in the Company's reorganization. However, it is likely that the
Company's common stock will have little or no value at the time of the
Company's emergence from bankruptcy, and the common stock could be canceled
entirely upon the approval of the Bankruptcy Court. In the event of such
cancellation, amounts invested in the Company's common stock will not be
recoverable. Accordingly, the Company urges that caution be exercised with
respect to existing and future investments in any of these securities
(including the Company's common stock) or other Company claims. Readers are
referred to the documents filed by the Company with the Securities and
Exchange Commission, including the Company's Form 10-K for the period ended
December 31, 2011, which further identify the important risk factors that
could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking
statements in this news release. The Company disclaims any obligation to
update any forward-looking statement or information.
