Despite 24 Percent Fuel Price Increase, AMR Reduces 1Q Net Loss by $69 Million Versus Prior Year Period

FORT WORTH, Texas, April 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- AMR Corporation (NYSE: AMR), the parent company of American Airlines, Inc., today reported a net loss of $436 million for the first quarter of 2011, or $1.31 per share. The first quarter 2011 results include the impact of approximately $31 million in one-time non-cash charges related to certain sale/leaseback transactions.  Excluding this special item, the Company incurred a loss of $405 million for the first quarter of 2011, or $1.21 per share.

The results for the first quarter 2011 compare to a net loss of $505 million, or $1.52 per share, in the first quarter 2010. The first quarter 2010 results included a $53 million, or $0.16 per share, special item related to the devaluation of the Venezuelan currency. Excluding that special item, AMR's loss was $452 million, or $1.36 per share, in the first quarter of 2010.

The Company achieved improved year-over-year results in spite of sharply rising fuel prices that increased 24 percent compared to the first quarter 2010. Including the impact of fuel hedging, AMR paid on average $2.76 per gallon for jet fuel in the first quarter of this year versus $2.23 per gallon in the first quarter 2010.  As a result, the Company paid $351 million more for fuel in the first three months of 2011 than it would have paid at prevailing prices from the corresponding prior-year period.

"High fuel prices remain one of the biggest challenges to our industry and our company.  We believe our steps to aggressively increase revenues, reduce capacity, control non-fuel operating costs, and bolster liquidity will help us to better manage the challenges we currently face," said AMR Chairman and CEO Gerard Arpey.  "While we clearly must achieve better results as we continue to strengthen our business, we have made some meaningful progress. I want to thank our people for their commitment to serving our customers, and I am confident that our overall strategy positions American well to address our current challenges and sets the stage for long-term success."

4Q Capacity Additional Cut Facilitated by the Flexibility Provided by MD-80 Fleet

Today, American announced it plans to reduce its fourth quarter 2011 system capacity by an incremental 1 percent.  This cut is in addition to the capacity reduction already announced by American in March and further demonstrates the flexibility provided by its MD-80 fleet.  American now intends to retire at least 25 MD-80s in 2011, as part of the company's plan to continue renewing its fleet, while addressing the current fuel environment.

The Company also highlighted several recent developments that demonstrate its determination in executing its strategic plan:

Joint Business with British Airways and Iberia – Newly Aligned Summer Schedule

American Airlines, British Airways and Iberia recently implemented a newly aligned schedule in which, for the first time ever, the airlines' flight times across the North Atlantic are fully coordinated – including the new London express service with 15 flights per day from New York to London. The new schedule alignment, which began March 27, means customers traveling between New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and London Heathrow Airport (LHR) will benefit from more conveniently timed flights during peak periods. American passengers arriving in London can also make connections to nearly 50 European cities through oneworld® partner British Airways. In addition to the schedule changes offering more conveniently timed flights to London, there are many other schedule improvements resulting from the joint business cooperation.

American Airlines and oneworld Partners Add European Service from the East Coast

American Airlines launched new and more frequent services between the East Coast and the European cities of Budapest, Hungary, as well as Barcelona and Madrid, Spain. The new service is part of a series of recent and upcoming additional flights, as well as improved schedules, between the United States and global destinations that are being delivered by American and its fellow oneworld partners British Airways and Iberia.

American Airlines and Japan Airlines Launch Trans-Pacific Joint Business

On April 1, American Airlines and Japan Airlines (JAL) launched their trans-Pacific joint business between North America and Asia.  In addition to providing more destinations, greater access to discounted fares, a wider choice of flight times and airports, easier connections for customers, and enhanced mileage program benefits, the two airlines will also share revenue on applicable trans-Pacific flights.  Furthermore, American is firmly committed to assisting the Japanese people and supporting Japan Airlines in the aftermath of the March 11 earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan. To date, American Airlines and American Eagle customers and employees have donated more than $1.6 million in aid to relief efforts in Japan.

Los Angeles Focus

In early April, American Airlines and American Eagle significantly enhanced their services from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) with 10 new destinations, including new daily nonstop service to Shanghai, China.  American is the first U.S. airline to offer daily nonstop service from Los Angeles to Shanghai, the largest U.S.-China air travel market. American Eagle also launched nine new daily domestic destinations from LAX. The service expansion increases total daily departures for American and American Eagle at LAX by 28 percent to over 150. The additional routes and choices for customers strengthen American's position in Los Angeles, one of its five cornerstone markets in the U.S. and one of the top five global markets for premium passengers.

Fleet Renewal and Flexibility for the Future: 777-300ER

As part of the Company's fleet renewal efforts, American Airlines now has five 777-300ERs that are scheduled for delivery in 2012 and 2013, including two additional aircraft for which options were recently exercised. These 777-300ERs will complement American's fleet, offering additional network flexibility in the future, and providing increased efficiency due to better seat mile economics and performance characteristics.  

Update on Distribution

In the early part of the first quarter, American Airlines began processing Priceline transactions through its direct connect technology. In April, American and Expedia, Inc. entered into a memorandum of understanding (MOU) that allows the companies to resume doing business together, effective April 4. Access to fares and schedule information of American and American Eagle has been restored for search and ticketing on Expedia and Hotwire sites worldwide. Expedia is planning to access American's fares, schedules, and customized travel products and services via American's direct connect link by using aggregation technology provided by a Global Distribution System (GDS).

On April 12, American Airlines filed a civil antitrust lawsuit against Travelport, LLC to stop its exclusionary and anticompetitive business practices and recover monetary damages, and against Orbitz for entering into an anticompetitive agreement with Travelport that supported Travelport's monopolistic actions.  The suit was filed after extensive discussions with Travelport and Orbitz (Orbitz is affiliated with Travelport) did not successfully resolve a dispute over distribution of American's fares and schedules. American intends to honor its existing contractual obligations with Travelport throughout the proceedings of this action and expects it will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

American continues to have discussions with other GDS companies with the intent of distributing its content through these systems under competitive terms.

American Airlines Completes Private Offering of Senior Secured Notes

In March, American strengthened its liquidity by completing a private offering of $1 billion aggregate principal amount of 7.50% senior secured notes due 2016. The notes are secured by certain route authorities, landing and takeoff slots and airport facilities used by American to provide service between London Heathrow and the U.S., between Tokyo Narita and Haneda airports and the U.S., and between Chicago O'Hare and Beijing and Shanghai.

Financial and Operational Performance (Excluding Impact of Special Items)

AMR reported first quarter consolidated revenues of approximately $5.5 billion, an increase of 9.2 percent year over year. American, its regional affiliates, AA Cargo, as well as the 'other revenue' category, experienced year-over-year increases, as total operating revenue was approximately $465 million higher in first quarter 2011 compared to the first quarter of the previous year.

Consolidated passenger revenue per available seat mile (unit revenue) grew 5.2 percent, while mainline unit revenue at American grew 5.0 percent, in each case compared to the first quarter 2010. The Company's first quarter unit revenue performance reflects an improved fare environment and a recovering economy, as well as a more robust business travel market.  AMR achieved this improvement despite significant disruption of its operations due to unusually severe weather, a fuel farm fire at Miami International Airport, and the earthquake/tsunami in Japan, all of which reduced revenue in the first quarter.

Passenger yield, which represents the average fares paid, increased at American by 6.2 percent year over year in the first quarter.

Mainline unit costs in the first quarter decreased 1.8 percent year over year, excluding fuel costs and special items. Non-fuel unit cost performance was driven by American's cost control efforts and a modest increase in capacity.

Mainline capacity, or total available seat miles, in the first quarter increased by 2.7 percent compared to the prior year's first quarter, as the Company selectively allocated capacity to key markets, such as Asia.

American's mainline load factor – or percentage of total seats filled – was 77.1 percent during the first quarter of 2011, 0.8 points lower than the year-ago period.

Balance Sheet Update

AMR ended the first quarter with approximately $6.3 billion in cash and short-term investments, including a restricted balance of $455 million and approximately $390 million of collateral relating to fuel hedging transactions. This compares to a balance of $5.0 billion in cash and short-term investments, including a restricted balance of $460 million, at the end of the first quarter of 2010.

AMR's Total Debt, which it defines as the aggregate of its long-term debt, capital lease obligations, the principal amount of airport facility tax-exempt bonds, and the present value of aircraft operating lease obligations, was $17.4 billion at the end of the first quarter of 2011, compared to $15.9 billion a year earlier.

AMR's Net Debt, which it defines as Total Debt less unrestricted cash and short-term investments, was $11.6 billion at the end of the first quarter, compared to $11.4 billion in the first quarter of 2010.

Other First Quarter Highlights

  • American Airlines and Qantas, members of the oneworld Alliance, announced the next phase of their deepening commercial relationship, expanding the number of routes on which the airlines will codeshare between major cities across North America and Australia.  As part of the agreement, American will codeshare on Qantas flights between Sydney and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
  • American Airlines and WestJet Airlines have launched a comprehensive codeshare agreement that will give customers of both airlines more choices and greater connectivity when travelling between the United States and Canada, as well as across American's worldwide network.
  • In addition to its LAX expansion, American Eagle launched or announced new service in a number of markets: Dallas/Fort Worth to two new destinations in Mexico – Queretaro and Veracruz – as well as service to Joplin, Mo., and its first-ever regional jet service to the Caribbean (Miami to La Romana, Dominican Republic). New Eagle routes that were also announced during the quarter include Dallas/Fort Worth to Grand Island, Neb.; Durango, Co. and Mazatlan and Morelia, Mexico; Chicago to Charlottesville, Va.; and Chicago to Wilmington, N.C.

Guidance

Mainline and Consolidated Capacity

In light of its announced 2011 capacity reductions, AMR expects its full-year mainline capacity to be 1.4 percentage points lower than originally planned or up 2.2 percent versus 2010, with domestic capacity down 0.5 percent and international capacity up 6.2 percent compared to 2010 levels. On a consolidated basis, full-year capacity will be up 2.8 percent.

AMR expects mainline capacity in the second quarter of 2011 to be 2.9 percent higher than last year, with domestic capacity expected to be down 0.4 percent and international capacity expected to be up 8.1 percent. AMR expects consolidated capacity in the second quarter of 2011 to be up 3.9 percent.

Fuel Expense and Hedging

The cost of jet fuel has been increasing and remains very volatile. Based on the April 1 forward curve, AMR is planning for an average system price of $3.10 per gallon in the second quarter of 2011 and $3.07 per gallon for all of 2011. This compares to an average system price of $2.32 per gallon in 2010.  Consolidated consumption for the second quarter is expected to be 713 million gallons of jet fuel.  

AMR has 49 percent of its anticipated second quarter 2011 fuel consumption hedged at an average cap of $2.66 per gallon of jet fuel equivalent ($86 per barrel crude equivalent), with 39 percent subject to an average floor of $2.04 per gallon of jet fuel equivalent ($60 per barrel crude equivalent). AMR has 41 percent of its anticipated full-year consumption hedged at an average cap of $2.63 per gallon of jet fuel equivalent ($84 per barrel crude equivalent), with 35 percent subject to an average floor of $2.02 per gallon of jet fuel equivalent ($58 per barrel crude equivalent).

Mainline and Consolidated Cost per Available Seat Mile (CASM), Excluding Special Items

Fuel prices are expected to be a significant cost headwind in 2011. AMR remains intensely focused on containing costs, despite significant fuel price and other headwinds in a number of areas, including, among others, facilities and healthcare costs.  As a result, cost per available seat mile for 2011, excluding fuel and the potential impact of any new labor agreements, is expected to be about flat to 2010. The Company intends to accomplish this through a number of additional initiatives since incremental capacity reductions will put additional pressure on unit costs.
