American Airlines Maintains Positive Momentum with Craig S. Kreeger
               and C. David Cush Assuming New Roles

FORT WORTH, Texas - AMR Corporation today named James Beer, 42, as
senior vice president-Finance and chief financial officer. Filling
a previously announced vacancy, Beer, currently vice president-
Europe and Asia for AMR Corp. subsidiary American Airlines, will
immediately begin the transition to his new role.

Two existing American Airlines officers will also move into new
roles. Craig S. Kreeger, 44, who presently serves as vice president
and general sales manager, will become vice president-Europe and
Asia. C. David Cush, 43, who most recently oversaw the strategic
reorganization of the St. Louis hub, will become vice president and
general sales manager.

"James' appointment demonstrates the depth of the management team
here at AMR," said Gerard Arpey, president and chief executive
officer of AMR Corporation and its American Airlines subsidiary.
"James is a consummate professional, with an exceptionally strong
financial background and an intimate familiarity with the
significant challenges facing our industry.

"The ability of Craig and David to step into new roles, while
preserving the momentum of our recovery here at AMR, is further
testament to the strength of our existing leadership team," Arpey
said. "Craig has done a great job spearheading our sales programs
as well as leading the critical effort to address distribution
costs. In addition to David's most recent responsibility in St.
Louis, he has held leadership roles in Finance and Marketing and
served as COO of Aerolineas Argentinas."

Beer joined American as a financial analyst in 1991. His
