FOR RELEASE: Monday, Nov. 22, 2004

                       AIRCRAFT DELIVERIES

     FORT WORTH, Texas -- American Airlines and The Boeing
Company announced today that American will defer 54 of 56
aircraft originally scheduled for delivery between 2006 and 2010.
The delivery of 47 Boeing 737-800 aircraft and seven Boeing 777
aircraft will be deferred by seven years and six years,
respectively, beyond their originally scheduled delivery dates.
The arrangement allows American to postpone $1.4 billion of
capital spending previously planned for 2005 through 2007 and a
total of $2.7 billion in capital spending through 2010.
     American will take delivery of two Boeing 777 aircraft in
2006, including one aircraft originally scheduled for delivery in
2007, to support its previously announced international growth.
     "Deferring the delivery of 54 aircraft and the related
capital spending for up to seven years is a very important
milestone in American's Turnaround Plan.  It will substantially
enhance our ability to restructure our finances," said James
Beer, American's Senior Vice President-Finance and Chief
Financial Officer.  "We very much appreciate the support shown to
us by our partners at Boeing and look forward to a continuing
robust relationship between our two companies," Beer said.
     A Boeing spokesperson said that Boeing already has factored
these changes into Boeing's financial guidance.
     American Airlines' active fleet consists of over 730
aircraft, including 700 Boeing and McDonnell Douglas aircraft.

Statements in this news release contain various forward-looking
statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities
Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities
Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, which represent the Company's
expectations or beliefs concerning future events. When used in
this news release, the words "expects," "plans," "anticipates,"
"indicates," "believes," "forecast," "guidance," "outlook" and
similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking
statements. Forward-looking statements include, without
limitation, the Company's expectations concerning operations and
financial conditions, including changes in capacity, revenues,
and costs, future financing plans and needs, overall economic
conditions, plans and objectives for future operations, and the
impact on the Company of its results of operations in recent
years and the sufficiency of its financial resources to absorb
that impact. Other forward-looking statements include statements
which do not relate solely to historical facts, such as, without
limitation, statements which discuss the possible future effects
of current known trends or uncertainties, or which indicate that
the future effects of known trends or uncertainties cannot be
predicted, guaranteed or assured. All forward-looking statements
in this release are based upon information available to the
Company on the date of this release. The Company undertakes no
obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking
statement, whether as a result of new information, future events,
or otherwise.
Forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risk
factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from
our expectations. The following factors, in addition to other
possible factors not listed, could cause the Company's actual
results to differ materially from those expressed in forward-
looking statements: changes in economic, business and financial
conditions; the Company's substantial indebtedness; continued
high fuel prices and the availability of fuel; further increases
in the price of fuel; the residual effects of the war in Iraq;
conflicts in the Middle East or elsewhere; the highly competitive
business environment faced by the Company, with increasing
competition from low cost carriers and bankrupt carriers and
historically low fare levels (which could result in a further
deterioration of the revenue environment); the ability of the
Company to implement its restructuring program and the effect of
the program on operational performance and service levels;
uncertainties with respect to the Company's international
operations; changes in the Company's business strategy; actions
by U.S. or foreign government agencies; the possible occurrence
of additional terrorist attacks; another outbreak of a disease
(such as SARS) that affects travel behavior; uncertainties with
respect to the Company's relationships with unionized and other
employee work groups; the ability of the Company to satisfy
existing financial or other covenants in certain of its credit
agreements; the availability of future financing; the ability of
the Company to reach acceptable agreements with third parties;
and increased insurance costs and potential reductions of
available insurance coverage. Additional information concerning
these and other factors is contained in the Company's Securities
and Exchange Commission filings, including but not limited to the
Form 10-K for the year ended Dec. 31, 2003.
