      AMR Corporation Reports November 2012 Revenue And Traffic Results

PR Newswire

FORT WORTH, Texas, Dec. 10, 2012

FORT WORTH, Texas, Dec. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --AMR Corporation today
reported November 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 1.9 percent and 0.7 percent higher
year-over-year respectively, resulting in a consolidated load factor of 80.7
percent, a decrease of 1.0 points versus the same period last year.

International traffic was 4.6 percent higher on a 5.2 percent increase in
capacity, resulting in an international load factor of 78.9 percent, 0.5
points lower compared to the same period last year. The Atlantic entity
recorded the highest load factor of 79.9 percent, an increase of 2.3 points
versus November 2011.

Domestic load factor decreased 1.5 points to 82.8 percent, as traffic
decreased 1.2 percent on 0.6 percent more capacity.

November's consolidated passenger revenue per available seat mile (PRASM)
decreased an estimated 2.3 percent versus the same period last year. American
estimates that Hurricane Sandy and the early November snow storm in the
Northeast negatively impacted November revenues by approximately $25 million,
and lowered unit revenue by 1.5 percentage points. Separately, operational
disruptions that took place in late September and early October affected
bookings for November travel, negatively impacting revenues in the month by an
estimated $30 million, and lowered unit revenue by an additional 1.8
percentage points. American estimates that absent these events, PRASM in
November 2012 would have been approximately 1.0 percent higher than in
November 2011.

On a consolidated basis, the company boarded 8.6 million passengers in
November.

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.
