                FOR RELEASE: Monday, March 31, 2003

                      EMPLOYEES TO CUT COSTS

     FORT WORTH, Texas -  AMR Chairman Don Carty today heralded

"ground breaking accords" with the leadership of the three major

unions representing American Airlines employees as he announced

changes in pay plans for management and non-union employees to

achieve $1.8 billion in employee cost savings.

     "Today's unprecedented action by the unions, our employees and

the company represent another first at American and in our

industry," Carty said.

     "By taking these decisive actions, the union leadership and

our employees have demonstrated an unwavering commitment to the

future of the company, and have enabled us to avoid an immediate

filing with the bankruptcy court. The speed with which these

comprehensive and complex agreements was reached is a testament to

our people."

     The accords with the three unions are far reaching and touch

on nearly every aspect of pay, benefits and work rules.

     As part of this effort, the company will also announce changes

to pay, benefits and work rules for all non-union employees,

including agents, representatives, planners, support staff and


     Labor leaders worked with the company to determine how best to

meet their targets, while over 10,000 non-union employees actively

participated through surveys, focus groups and InterAction sessions

to help determine theirs.

     The cost savings will be divided by work group as follows:

-    Pilots: $660 million

-    Flight attendants: $340 million

-    TWU Represented employees: $620 million

-    Agents, representatives and planners: $80 million

-    Management and support staff: $100 million

     In addition, the company announced that Carty will take a 33

percent base pay cut; decline a bonus for the third consecutive

year; and will ask the AMR Board of Directors to make further

changes that significantly reduce the value of his and his senior

officers' compensation packages.

     In announcing the agreements, Carty also reported that

American employees will have access to a new stock option and

profit sharing program.

     Carty cautioned, however, that while these agreements are a

"critical step in our resolute march toward survival," he said that

the agreements must still be ratified by the unions' memberships

and the company must, among other factors, secure "meaningful

concessions" from its vendors, lessors and suppliers. The company,

in communications to its employees, stressed that "the financial

condition of American is weak and its prospects remain uncertain.

Particularly given the impact of the continuing war in Iraq and the

different general economic conditions that are negatively impacting

the industry, the days ahead will be difficult and the success of

our joint efforts is not yet assured."

      "I would not ask for these sacrifices if I weren't convinced

that they were absolutely necessary to achieve our restructuring

goals," Carty said. He committed to building upon the "culture of

cooperation and collaboration that produced today's agreements and

that is essential to our future.   My commitment to fostering this

new culture will not change," he said. "Our employees are key to

our success."
