AMR CORPORATION REPORTS OCTOBER 2012 REVENUE AND TRAFFIC RESULTS
FORT WORTH, Texas - AMR Corporation today reported October 2012 consolidated revenue and traffic results for its principal subsidiary, American Airlines, Inc., and its wholly owned subsidiary, AMR Eagle Holding Corporation.
Consolidated capacity and traffic were 3.4 percent and 3.7 percent lower year-over-year respectively, resulting in a consolidated load factor of 82.3 percent, a decrease of 0.3 points versus the same period last year.
International load factor increased 0.5 points to 81.3 percent, as traffic decreased 0.6 percent on 1.2 percent less capacity. The Pacific entity recorded the highest year-over-year increase in load factor of 4.9 points, resulting in a load factor of 82.8 percent for the month of October.
Domestic capacity and traffic were 5.0 percent and 6.0 percent lower year-over-year, respectively, resulting in a domestic load factor of 84.0 percent, 0.9 points lower compared to the same period last year.
October's consolidated passenger revenue per available seat mile (PRASM) increased an estimated 0.4 percent versus the same period last year. Absent the recent operational disruption that affected bookings for October travel, PRASM would have been approximately 3.1 percent higher than in October 2011. Separately, American Airlines and American Eagle cancelled more than 2,000 flights as a result of Hurricane Sandy; however, the impact on PRASM was not significant.
“I'm proud of the spirit and resilience of our people, many of whom have been displaced or suffered home or property damage following Hurricane Sandy. Under very challenging conditions, they have worked diligently to restore our operations in the Northeast and care for our customers,” said Tom Horton, chairman and CEO, AMR Corporation.
On a consolidated basis, the company boarded 8.8 million passengers in October.

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.
