AMR Achieves The Improvement Despite The Impact Of High Fuel

First Quarter Results Also Are Marked By An Operating Profit
        And Positive Operating Cash Flow Performance

     FORT WORTH, Texas - AMR Corporation, parent company of
American Airlines, Inc., today reported a net loss of $92
million in the first quarter of 2006, or $.49 per share, as
compared to a net loss of $162 million, or $1.00 per share,
in the first quarter of 2005.  First quarter 2005 results
included a benefit of $69 million, or $.43 per share,
related to certain excise tax refunds.

     "A loss of any size is never satisfactory," said AMR
Chairman and CEO Gerard Arpey, "but it is somewhat
gratifying to have improved our first quarter results by
$139 million year over year excluding last year's excise tax
refunds, despite the Company paying $349 million more for
fuel because of higher fuel prices during the first quarter
of 2006 versus the same period last year."  Arpey also
pointed out that the Company achieved a first quarter
operating profit of $115 million, and had positive operating
cash flow for the period.

     For the quarter, American's passenger revenue per
available seat mile was up 10.8 percent year over year.
American's load factor - or percentage of seats filled - for
the first quarter was 77.2 percent, up 1.8 points over the
first quarter of 2005, while yield, representing average
fares, was up 8.2 percent.  Overall, AMR's revenue from all
sources - passenger, cargo and other categories - grew in
the first quarter by $594 million, or 12.5 percent, year
over year.

     "Thanks to the hard work of our people and the changes
we have made, we are creating new streams of revenue and are
bringing additional customers into the network.  These
efforts are driving unit revenues to near 2000 levels,"
Arpey said.  "Unfortunately, the price of fuel has increased
by more than 143 percent since then, adding $3.6 billion to
our annual cost structure.  Even with strong demand for air
travel, we have been able to pass only a very small portion
of that increase on to our customers."  On a year over year
basis, American's mainline cost per available seat mile was
up by 10.3 percent.  Excluding fuel, mainline unit costs
increased 2.9 percent versus the first quarter of last year.

     Under the tenets of its Turnaround Plan and working
collaboratively with its employees and unions, American
continues to focus sharply on numerous cost savings
initiatives as it works to achieve sustained profitability.
One such step is a flattening of the summer peak schedule
that allows the airline to reduce the extra resources that
it carries year-round to support the summer peak.  As a
result, American is placing 27 of its MD80 aircraft into
temporary storage in phases by July 1, 2006, to improve the
overall efficiency of its operations.

     In an initiative to reduce distribution costs, American
at the end of March successfully renegotiated its agreement
with Worldspan, a global distribution system (GDS) that
enables an airline to display its products over an extensive
network of travel agencies.  The new arrangement provides
American with substantially lower costs and greater
flexibility in continuing to adopt new cost-effective
technologies as they become available.  American is in
discussions with some of the other GDSs as well.

     Despite the continuing challenges of a very difficult
industry, Arpey said he is pleased with the airline's
progress to date, and expects a very robust summer.  "It
looks like another very busy summer for our industry," he
said.  "Our planes should be full, which among other things
means we have a golden opportunity - if we stay focused on
running a good airline, controlling costs, and giving our
customers what they truly value - to build on the momentum
reflected in the financial results we are reporting today."

     Arpey pointed out that as of April 14, AMR had
contributed $120 million to its various defined benefit
plans this year.

     AMR ended the quarter with $4.8 billion in cash and
short-term investments, including a restricted balance of
$510 million.

limitation, the Company's expectations concerning operations

statements which discuss the possible future effects of

Forward-looking statements are subject to a number of
factors that could cause the Company's actual results to

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:  the materially weakened financial condition of
the Company, resulting from its significant losses in recent
years; the ability of the Company to generate additional
revenues and significantly reduce its costs; changes in
economic and other conditions beyond the Company's control,
and the volatile results of the Company's operations; the
Company's substantial indebtedness and other obligations;
the ability of the Company to satisfy existing financial or
other covenants in certain of its credit agreements;
continued high fuel prices and further increases in the
price of fuel, and the availability of fuel; the fiercely
competitive business environment faced by the Company, and
historically low fare levels; competition with reorganized
and reorganizing carriers; the Company's reduced pricing
power; the Company's need to raise additional funds and its
ability to do so on acceptable terms; changes in the
Company's business strategy; government regulation of the
Company's business; conflicts overseas or terrorist attacks;
uncertainties with respect to the Company's international
operations; outbreaks of a disease (such as SARS or avian
flu) that affects travel behavior; uncertainties with
respect to the Company's relationships with unionized and
other employee work groups; increased insurance costs and
potential reductions of available insurance coverage; the
Company's ability to retain key management personnel;
potential failures or disruptions of the Company's computer,
communications or other technology systems; changes in the
price of the Company's common stock; and the ability of the
Company to reach acceptable agreements with third parties.
Additional information concerning these and other factors is
contained in the Company's Securities and Exchange
Commission filings, including but not limited to the
Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended
December 31, 2005.
