FORT WORTH, Texas, June 7, 2013

FORT WORTH, Texas, June 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AMR Corporation, the parent
company of American Airlines, Inc., today announced that the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Southern District of New York entered the order approving the
Disclosure Statement filed in connection with the company's proposed Plan of
Reorganization (the Plan). The Court also authorized American to begin
soliciting votes on the Plan of Reorganization from creditors and
stockholders. Solicitation packages will be distributed by June 20 and the
voting deadline is July 29. The hearing before the Court to consider
confirmation of the Plan is scheduled for Aug. 15, 2013.

The Plan is supported by the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors.
Holders of approximately $1.6 billion of prepetition unsecured claims also
have committed to vote to accept the Plan.

"This is a significant step forward in our efforts to complete the most
successful restructuring in aviation history," said Tom Horton, AMR's
chairman, president and CEO. "We're in the home stretch of our restructuring
and thanks to the hard work of our team, we are positioned to emerge a highly
competitive, leading global airline focused on delivering the very best for
our customers, our people, and our investors."

The proposed Plan is to become effective concurrently with the consummation of
a merger with US Airways. The proposed merger is expected to maximize
recoveries for all of the company's economic stakeholders and the proposed
Plan provides a recovery of 3.5% of the common stock (on an as-converted
basis) of the combined company for holders of existing AMR equity securities,
with the potential for such holders to receive additional shares.

Under the terms of the Merger Agreement with US Airways, stockholders of US
Airways will receive one share of common stock of the combined company for
each share of US Airways common stock then held. The aggregate number of
shares of common stock of the combined company issuable to holders of US
Airways equity instruments (including stockholders, holders of convertible
notes, optionees, and holders of restricted stock units) will represent 28% of
the diluted equity ownership of the combined company. The remaining 72% of the
diluted equity ownership of the combined company will be issued under the Plan
to AMR's stakeholders, AMR's labor unions, and certain employees of AMR.
