Item 2.05  Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities

On May 21, 2008, AMR Corporation (the "Company") issued a press release announcing capacity reductions and related matters as described in the press release. The Company made its determination to implement these capacity reductions in light of unprecedented high fuel costs and the other challenges facing the industry.  Further, on June 18, 2008, the Company announced that in connection with these capacity reductions, the Company anticipated that it would record non-cash accounting charges, including aircraft impairments, certain related long-lived assets, and other disposal and associated costs.
In conjunction with these capacity reductions, the Company concluded that the carrying values of its McDonnell Douglas MD-80 and the Embraer RJ-135 aircraft fleets are no longer recoverable. Consequently, during the second quarter of 2008, the Company will record a non-cash impairment charge of approximately $1.1 to $1.2 billion to write these and certain related long-lived assets down to their estimated fair value. No portion of the impairment charge will result in future cash expenditures.
Also in conjunction with the capacity reductions, the Company estimates that it will reduce its workforce commensurate with previously announced system-wide capacity reductions by December 2008.  As a result of this reduction in workforce, the Company will record a charge of approximately $75 to $100 million for severance related costs, a portion of which may be recorded in the third quarter.  All severance related costs represent cash outlays and will be incurred over a period of up to twelve months.
The Company expects to record other accounting charges relating to these capacity reductions, such as  other disposal costs and other associated costs, but cannot at this time reasonably estimate the amount and timing of these charges or the portion, if any, of these charges that would result in future cash expenditures.
