AMR Corporation Reports September 2012 Revenue And Traffic Results

Consolidated Passenger Unit Revenue (PRASM) Increased 4.0 Percent

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

September's consolidated passenger revenue per available seat mile (PRASM) increased an estimated 4.0 percent versus the same period last year, continuing the positive trend the airline has seen throughout this year. Absent the impact of operational challenges due to flight cancellations and delays during the second half of September, unit revenue improvement would have been approximately 0.4 points higher.

Consolidated capacity and traffic were 3.4 percent and 2.8 percent lower year-over-year respectively, resulting in a consolidated load factor of 81.1 percent, an increase of 0.5 points versus the same period last year.

International load factor increased 3.0 points to 83.6 percent, as traffic increased 3.2 percent on 0.5 percent less capacity. The Atlantic entity recorded the highest load factor of 86.9 percent, an increase of 4.0 points versus September 2011.

Domestic capacity and traffic were 5.5 percent and 7.1 percent lower year-over-year, respectively, resulting in a domestic load factor of 80.5 percent, 1.4 points lower compared to the same period last year.

On a consolidated basis, the company boarded 8.3 million passengers in September.
