FAA Tells Court It May Fine American Airlines Over Safety

AMR Corp.’s American Airlines may face the largest penalties ever pursued by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration for safety violations, according to a bankruptcy court filing.

The agency’s cases, several of which have never been disclosed, may lead to as much as $162.4 million in fines against American and affiliated companies, according to documents filed by the agency with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court overseeing AMR’s reorganization.
