     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 capacity and 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: the continuing impact of the
events of September 11, 2001 on the Company, 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. 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, 2001.


As a follow-up to our conference call of last week, I'm providing an update of
our system capacity expectations for the remainder of 2002 by month as well as
our full year expectation for 2003.

For the fourth quarter of 2002, we expect capacity to be up year-over-year by
approximately 6.5% versus our prior expectation of close to an 11% increase. For
2003, we expect full year capacity to be down over 3% from 2002 and down over
10% from 2001 levels. Relative to 2001 and recognizing some seasonality changes
in capacity allocation, American's August 2003 capacity will be down 16-18% from
August 2001.

Please call if you have additional questions.
