AMR Corporation Reports a First Quarter 2008 Net Loss of $328 Million as Record Fuel Prices Drove $665 Million in Added Cost Compared to a Year Ago

AMR TAKES STEPS TO ADDRESS CHALLENGES, INCLUDING: ADDITIONAL 2008 CAPACITY REDUCTIONS; ACCELERATION OF MD-80 REPLACEMENT WITH MORE EFFICIENT 737-800s; AND MANAGEMENT AND SUPPORT STAFF HIRING FREEZE

AMR Corporation , the parent company of American Airlines, Inc., today reported a net loss of $328 million for the first quarter of 2008, or $1.32 per share.

The current quarter results compare to a net profit of $81 million for the first quarter of 2007, or $0.30 per diluted share.

Record jet fuel prices contributed significantly to the Company's loss in the first quarter of 2008. The Company paid $665 million more for fuel in the first quarter of 2008 than it would have paid at prevailing prices from the prior-year period. AMR paid $2.74 per gallon for jet fuel in the first quarter compared to $1.85 a gallon in the first quarter of 2007, a 48 percent increase.

"The first quarter proved yet again that fuel prices remain one of the biggest threats to our industry and our company, and we also can't ignore the ongoing concerns about the U.S. economy and the potential impact on travel demand. Clearly, it has been a challenging start to 2008, and I want to take this time to again apologize to our customers who were inconvenienced by our recent cancellations and also thank all of our employees who worked tirelessly through difficult weather and maintenance challenges to take care of our customers," said AMR Chairman and CEO Gerard Arpey. "While our first quarter financial results were disappointing, through our hard work in recent years to contain costs and strengthen our balance sheet and liquidity we are better positioned to withstand today's uncertainty. However, we also recognize that we have a lot more hard work ahead of us and that our efforts must be ongoing."

Arpey noted that the Company is taking numerous steps to address the challenging circumstances that it faces, including its recent hiring freeze for management and support staff and today's announcements that AMR is making additional reductions to its 2008 capacity plan and is accelerating the replacement of its MD-80 fleet with more efficient Boeing 737-800s. Arpey also reiterated AMR's commitment to continue to work with the FAA to demonstrate the Company's ongoing commitment to safety and compliance with the FAA's directives.

At the same time, Arpey added, the Company remains focused on other ongoing efforts to deliver value to its shareholders. As further evidence of those efforts, the Company announced today that it has reached a definitive agreement to sell American Beacon Advisors, Inc., its wholly owned asset-management subsidiary, to Lighthouse Holdings, Inc., which is owned by investment funds affiliated with Pharos Capital Group, LLC and TPG Capital, two leading private equity firms. AMR will receive total consideration of approximately $480 million. While primarily a cash transaction, AMR will retain a 10 percent equity stake in the business. AMR expects to close the sale this summer subject to satisfactory completion of customary closing conditions as well as the approval of the Board of Trustees of the American Beacon family of mutual funds and shareholders of the American Beacon family of mutual funds and consents from other American Beacon clients. A press release outlining the American Beacon announcement is available in the Press Releases section at http://www.aa.com/.

AMR's planned divestiture of its regional carrier, American Eagle, also continues to move forward, Arpey said.

Operational Performance

AMR reported first quarter consolidated revenues of approximately $5.7 billion, an increase of 5.0 percent year over year. AMR estimates that weather and maintenance cancellations reduced first quarter consolidated revenue by approximately $75 million to $80 million.

American's mainline passenger revenue per available seat mile (unit revenue) increased by 6.5 percent in the first quarter compared to the year-ago quarter. (Please refer to the reconciliation tables at the end of this press release for a calculation of the impact of the recent reclassification of AAdvantage revenue received from the sale of third-party miles from Passenger Revenue to Other Revenue.)

Mainline capacity, or total available seat miles, in the first quarter decreased by 1.5 percent compared to the same period in 2007. The year-over-year decrease in capacity was largely the result of higher-than-anticipated weather cancellations, pilot early retirements, and maintenance cancellations.

American's mainline load factor -- or the percentage of total seats filled -- was a record 79.1 percent during the first quarter, compared to 78.1 percent in the first quarter of 2007. American's first-quarter yield, which represents average fares paid, increased 5.1 percent compared to the first quarter of 2007, its 12th consecutive quarter of year-over-year yield increases.

American's mainline cost per available seat mile (unit cost) in the first quarter increased 15.8 percent year over year. The largest contributor to the year-over-year increase in unit costs in the first quarter of 2008 was fuel. Excluding fuel, mainline unit costs in the first quarter of 2008 increased by 3.3 percent year over year.

As part of its efforts to improve the cost and fuel efficiency of its fleet, as well as lessen the Company's impact on the environment, AMR today provided an update on its plans to replace MD-80 aircraft with 737-800s. The Company expects to take delivery of a total of 34 737-800 aircraft in 2009 and 36 737s in 2010. Of these, the Company has firm commitments in place for 27 737s to be delivered in 2009 and three 737s to be delivered in 2010. This compares to the Company's fleet renewal update in January, when it said that it had firm commitments to take delivery of 23 737s in 2009.

Balance Sheet Update

Arpey noted that the Company's efforts to strengthen its balance sheet in recent years have better positioned AMR to face the current industry challenges.

AMR ended the first quarter with $4.9 billion in cash and short-term investments, including a restricted balance of $426 million, compared to a balance of $5.9 billion in cash and short-term investments, including a restricted balance of $471 million, at the end of the first quarter of 2007. The year-over-year decrease in the Company's cash and short-term investment balance is primarily related to AMR's total debt payments of approximately $2.3 billion in 2007, including prepayment of approximately $1 billion.

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 $15.2 billion at the end of the first quarter of 2008, compared to $17.5 billion at the end of the first quarter of 2007. AMR's Net Debt, which it defines as Total Debt less unrestricted cash and short-term investments, was $10.7 billion at the end of the first quarter of 2008, compared to $12.2 billion at the end of the first quarter of 2007.

As a result of scheduled principal payments as well as prepayments, refinancings and other efforts to strengthen its balance sheet, AMR's net interest expense in the first quarter of 2008 was $23 million lower than in the year-ago period, a 14 percent reduction.

AMR contributed $25 million to its employees' defined benefit pension plans in the first quarter and made an additional contribution of $50 million on April 15. AMR has contributed more than $2 billion to its employee defined benefit pension plans since the beginning of 2002.

  First Quarter and Other Recent Highlights   -- American added convenience, flexibility and choice for customers by      offering them the option to pay by electronic check when buying      tickets on the airline's Web site, AA.com. This allows customers who      purchase tickets at AA.com to pay directly from any personal bank      account -- such as a checking account or savings account -- that is      funded in United States dollars.   -- American announced it will rotate six different menus throughout the      year according to the season, increasing food choice and variety for      First and Business Class customers.   -- American Airlines Cargo Division (AA Cargo) received the      "International Airline of the Year" award from the Express Delivery      and Logistics Association (XLA) at its annual AirCargo 2008 Conference      in Orlando, Fla.   -- American launched Travel Bag, a new application on the Facebook      Platform that makes it easy for users to share travel experiences with      friends in their network, offer and read reviews and comments on      topics such as restaurants and shops, and create countdowns for      upcoming events or trips.   -- American introduced a mobile version of AA.com, providing customers      access to even more AA.com services via Web-enabled cell phones or      other Web-enabled devices. American also introduced enhancements that      allow travelers to book flights, view fare specials, request upgrades,      enroll in the AAdvantage® program, purchase Admirals Club® one-day      passes, and change flights for many domestic reservations via the      mobile site.   -- Employees at American's Kansas City maintenance base completed the      first aircraft installation of the Aircell® Internet broadband      connectivity solution. In 2008, American plans to install and test the      technology on all 15 of its Boeing 767-200 aircraft that primarily fly      transcontinental routes. Installation has been completed on six      aircraft so far.  Guidance  Mainline and Consolidated Capacity

As a result of increased fuel prices and growing concerns about the economy, AMR today announced a reduction in its 2008 capacity plans. The Company now expects its full-year mainline capacity to decrease by 1.4 percent in 2008 compared to 2007, with a 3.6 percent reduction in domestic capacity and a 2.5 percent increase in international capacity. The biggest impact on mainline capacity is planned to occur in the fourth quarter, when mainline domestic capacity is expected to decline by 4.6 percent from fourth quarter 2007 levels.

On a consolidated basis, AMR expects full-year capacity to decrease by 1.5 percent in 2008 compared to 2007.

For comparison, in previous capacity guidance from February 2008 AMR said that it expected mainline capacity for the full year 2008 to increase 0.2 percent from 2007, with a 1.1 percent reduction in domestic capacity and a 2.5 percent increase in international capacity, and it expected consolidated capacity to be flat compared to 2007.

The Company's February guidance reflected a decline of 0.6 percent for regional affiliate capacity compared to 2007 levels. AMR now expects regional affiliate capacity for 2008 to decrease by 2.1 percent versus 2007, with the majority of the reduction relative to what was reflected in prior guidance occurring in the fourth quarter.

AMR expects mainline capacity in the second quarter of 2008 to decrease by 1.4 percent year over year. It expects consolidated capacity to decrease 1.6 percent in the second quarter of 2008 compared to the prior-year period.

Fuel Expense and Hedging

While the cost of jet fuel remains very volatile, AMR is planning for an average system price of $3.01 per gallon in the second quarter of 2008 and $2.98 a gallon for all of 2008. AMR has 36 percent of its anticipated second quarter 2008 fuel consumption capped at an average crude equivalent of $72 per barrel (jet fuel equivalent of $2.42 per gallon), with 29 percent of its anticipated full-year consumption capped at an average crude equivalent of $75 per barrel (jet fuel equivalent of $2.41 per gallon). Consolidated consumption for the second quarter is expected to be 771 million gallons of jet fuel.

Mainline and Consolidated Unit Costs

For the second quarter of 2008, mainline unit costs are expected to increase 17.7 percent compared to the second quarter of 2007, while second quarter consolidated unit costs are expected to increase 17.0 percent compared to the second quarter of 2007.

In the second quarter of 2008, mainline unit costs excluding fuel are expected to increase 5.9 percent year over year while consolidated unit costs excluding fuel are expected to increase 5.6 percent from the second quarter of 2007. These unit cost projections include the estimated impact of MD-80 cancellations in April.

Full-year mainline unit costs excluding special items are expected to increase 15.0 percent in 2008 compared to 2007, while full-year consolidated unit costs excluding special items are expected to increase 14.7 percent in 2008 compared to 2007.

AMR expects mainline unit costs excluding fuel and special items to be 3.9 percent higher in 2008 versus 2007, while 2008 consolidated unit costs excluding fuel and special items are expected to increase 3.9 percent year over year.
