AMR CORPORATION /s/ Charles D. MarLett Charles D. MarLett Corporate Secretary Dated: May 22, 2001 4 May 22, 2001 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.
