Item 5.  Other Events

As  disclosed in our current report on Form 8-K dated  April  10,
2001,   American  Airlines,  Inc.  (American,  a   wholly   owned
subsidiary  of AMR Corporation) has completed its acquisition  of
substantially all the assets of Trans World Airlines, Inc  (TWA).
Based  on preliminary information received from TWA, the  Company
does  not  believe that this acquisition represents a significant
acquisition  as  defined in Regulation S-X.  If upon  receipt  of
TWA's  audited December 31, 2000 financial statements the Company
determines this represents a significant acquisition, the Company
will  file the required audited financial statements and proforma
financial information within 60 days.



     Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange  Act
of  1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed
on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
