TPG Said to Study AMR Investment as US Airways Adds Advisers

David Bonderman’s TPG Capital is studying whether to invest in American Airlines parent AMR Corp. in bankruptcy, and US Airways Group Inc. has hired advisers to assess a possible bid, people familiar with the matter said.

TPG’s review remains in the early stages, and no decisions have been reached about whether to take an AMR stake or buy the company outright, said one of the people, who asked not to be identified because the talks are private. US Airways also hasn’t made any decisions, said another person.
