    AMR Corporation Reports July 2012 Revenue and Traffic Results

    Consolidated Passenger Unit Revenue (PRASM) Increased 4.7 percent

    FORT WORTH, Texas, Aug. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- AMR Corporation today reported July 2012 consolidated revenue and traffic results for its principal subsidiary, American Airlines, Inc., and its wholly owned subsidiary, AMR Eagle Holding Corporation.

    July's consolidated passenger revenue per available seat mile (PRASM) increased an estimated 4.7 percent versus the same period last year, driven by stronger yield and solid demand in domestic and international markets.

    Consolidated capacity and traffic were both lower by 2.2 percent year-over-year, resulting in a July consolidated load factor of 87.0 percent, which is comparable to the same period last year.

    International load factor increased 0.5 points to 87.1 percent, as capacity and traffic were 1.9 and 1.4 percent lower year-over-year respectively.  The Pacific entity recorded a load factor of 86.6 percent, leading the international entities with a 5.1 point load factor increase.

    Domestic traffic was 2.9 percent lower on 2.6 percent less capacity, resulting in a domestic load factor of 88.2 percent, 0.3 points lower than the same period last year.

    On a consolidated basis, the Company boarded 9.9 million passengers in July.

    Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements and Information

    This news release could be viewed as containing forward-looking statements or information. Actual results may differ materially from the results suggested by the statements and information contained herein for a number of reasons, including, but not limited to, the impact of the bankruptcy filings of the Company and certain of its U.S. subsidiaries, the Company's ability to refinance, extend or repay its near and intermediate term debt, the Company's substantial level of indebtedness and related interest rates, the potential impact of volatile and rising fuel prices, impairments and restructuring charges. The Company cannot predict what the ultimate value of any of its securities may be or whether holders of any such securities will receive any distribution in the Company's reorganization. However, it is likely that the Company's common stock will have little or no value at the time of the Company's emergence from bankruptcy, and the common stock could be canceled entirely upon the approval of the Bankruptcy Court. In the event of such cancellation, amounts invested in the Company's common stock will not be recoverable. Accordingly, the Company urges that caution be exercised with respect to existing and future investments in any of these securities (including the Company's common stock) or other Company claims. Readers are referred to the documents filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the Company's Form 10-K for the period ended December 31, 2011, which further identify the important risk factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements in this news release. The Company disclaims any obligation to update any forward-looking statement or information.
