Item 2.03.  Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an
            Obligation Under an Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement 
            of the Registrant.

     On   November   8,  2005,  the  New  York  City   Industrial
Development  Agency  (the "IDA") issued $800 million  of  special
facility  revenue  bonds  on behalf of  American  Airlines,  Inc.
("American"),  a  wholly-owned  subsidiary  of  AMR   Corporation
("AMR").   Proceeds  from the bonds generally  will  be  used  to
finance  or  reimburse  American for certain  construction  costs
related   to   American's  new  terminal  at  John   F.   Kennedy
International Airport.  American is responsible for debt  service
on  the  bonds  and  will consolidate the debt in  its  financial
statements.  The bonds are guaranteed by both American  and  AMR.
American's  and  AMR's  obligations under  these  guaranties  are
secured by a mortgage of American's interest in its lease of  the
terminal and related property from the Port Authority of New York
and New Jersey.
     The  bonds  were  issued in different  maturities  and  bear
interest as follows:
      Amount            (August 1)          Interest Rate
    $59,290,000            2011                7.125%
    $90,040,000            2016                7.500%
   $230,700,000            2025                7.625%
   $118,020,000            2028                8.000%
   $301,950,000            2031                7.750%

     The  bonds, in aggregate, priced at approximately 97% of par
value;  thus, net of original issue discount, proceeds  from  the
offering  were approximately $775 million.  Of that amount,  $206
million  was  placed in escrow to reimburse American  for  future
remaining construction costs between now and the end of 2007.  An
additional  $77  million was escrowed for debt service  reserves,
ultimately  offsetting  some of American's  future  debt  service
obligation through 2031.  After these items, and issuance fees of
approximately   $20  million,  American,  at  closing,   received
approximately $470 million as reimbursement of construction costs
incurred to date.

     The  bonds  maturing  after August 1, 2016  are  subject  to
optional redemption during specified periods.  The bonds maturing
prior  to  August 1, 2016 are not subject to optional redemption.
The  bonds of each maturity are subject to mandatory sinking fund
redemption  at  specified  dates.  In  addition,  the  bonds  are
subject to mandatory redemption if the lease under which American
leases the terminal to the IDA is terminated (including by reason
of  the termination of American's lease of the terminal from  the
Port Authority of New York and New Jersey) or if interest on  the
bonds is determined to be taxable.
     Amounts payable with respect to the bonds can be accelerated
upon  the  occurrence  of certain events  of  default,  including
failure to pay principal and interest when due and the occurrence
of certain bankruptcy events with respect to American or AMR.


     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.
