Statements in this report 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 report, the words "expect", "forecast", "anticipates" and
similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking
statements.  All such statements are based on information
available to the Company on the date of this report.  The Company
undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking
statement, regardless of reason.  This discussion includes
forecasts of costs per ASM, capacity, traffic, fuel cost and fuel
consumption, and operational considerations, each of which is a
forward-looking statement.  There are a number of factors that
could cause actual results to differ materially from our
forecasts.  Such factors include, but are not limited to: general
economic conditions, competitive factors within the airline
industry which could affect the demand for air travel, changes in
the Company's business strategy, changes in commodity prices, the
inability to successfully integrate the operations of TWA into
those of American and to improve their profitability, higher than
expected integration costs, and the inability to successfully
integrate the workforce of TWA.  For additional information
regarding these and other factors see the Company's filings with
the Securities and Exchange Commission, including but not limited
to the Company's Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2000.

Monthly Update

Beginning this month, additional information for TWA LLC is being
incorporated into the Eagle Eye.  Expectations for TWA's unit
cost, traffic and capacity are noted separately on the
attachment.  In addition, at the AMR level, TWA is now included
in the AMR unit cost guidance.

For AA mainline operations, April traffic, as earlier reported,
was down from last year's levels.  Summer traffic for May through
July is also expected to be lower than last year due primarily to
softer demand.  We anticipate AA's capacity for the May to July
period to remain in line with our prior estimates.

Please call if you have additional questions.

*  Certain airline related small businesses have been
reclassified under American Mainline Operations (e.g. contract
maintenance and magazine).  As a result, we have provided
restated numbers for 2000 on a comparable basis.  Please note
that this minor change does not impact AMR Consolidated numbers.
