FOR RELEASE: Monday, June 18, 2001


     FORT WORTH, Texas - AMR Corp., the parent company of
American Airlines, Inc. and TWA Airlines, LLC, said today that it
expects a second quarter loss in excess of $100 million as it
continues to feel the effects of a sluggish U.S. economy and high
fuel prices.  The company also said if current conditions persist
it anticipates a loss for the full year 2001.
     "The softening U.S. economy has driven a sharp reduction in
demand for business travel," said Tom Horton, AMR's senior vice
president and chief financial officer.  "At the same time, fuel
prices remain persistently high.  We don't foresee a near-term
recovery in demand so we expect the balance of the year to be
very challenging."
     In response to industry conditions, AMR will retire 22
aircraft, including TWA LLC's entire fleet of 19 DC-9s.  These
aircraft, originally scheduled to leave the fleet over the course
of the next three years, will now be retired by the first quarter
of 2002.
     Horton noted this action will begin to affect the second
half of 2001 and will decrease full year 2002 capacity by
approximately one percent, better matching supply with demand.
In addition, by retiring the TWA LLC DC-9 fleet, AMR will avoid
the capital costs associated with making the aircraft compatible
with the rest of American's fleet and the cost inefficiencies of
operating a small fleet.
     Although TWA LLC operates the DC-9s on routes to and from
its St. Louis hub, the capacity reduction driven by the
retirement of these aircraft will be rationalized across AMR's
entire network.  Total departures at St. Louis will, in fact,
grow modestly year-over-year in 2002.

     "The St. Louis hub was one of the key assets we acquired
from TWA and a strong St. Louis hub continues to be one of the
cornerstones of our network strategy," Horton said.
     This capacity action is in addition to American's other
recent schedule adjustments, which included the announcement of
suspension of service in the Los Angeles-Paris and Chicago-Rome
     American, which is the world's largest airline and one of
the financially strongest, said it expects that these steps will
fortify the airline for the future.  "In this environment,
capacity restraint combined with rigorous cost and capital
spending controls are the right steps to take to preserve our
financial strength," said Horton.
     In a separate development, AMR will take an after-tax charge
of approximately $425 million in the second quarter to write down
American's fleet of Fokker 100 aircraft and American Eagle's
fleets of ATR-42 and Saab 340B turboprop aircraft, in accordance
with SFAS 121, "Accounting for the Impairment of Long-Lived
     American Airlines operates a fleet of 724 aircraft and
American Eagle, its regional affiliate, operates 272 turboprop
and regional jet aircraft.  TWA LLC operates 179 aircraft.  The
three airlines serve nearly 250 cities.
