AMR Corp: “We are pleased to report our highest quarterly net profit in American’s history, excluding reorganization and special items, thanks to the hard work of the entire American team. Continued execution on our product, network and alliance strategy, combined with cost efficiencies from restructuring and fleet renewal, creates strong momentum towards our planned merger with US Airways. And we are especially pleased to set aside USD59 million this quarter in expectation of making our first profit-sharing payout since 2001 to our people who have done so much to put American back on top," Tom Horton, Chairman, President and CEO.
