The filing identifies leases on 10 Boeing 757-200s, 6 McDonnell-Douglas MD-80s and one Airbus A300 aircraft that the Fort Worth-based carrier wants to shed. Thirteen of the planes are currently located at the Roswell International Air Center.
The aircraft range in age from 17 to 23 years old.
"In view of the large number of aircraft American Airlines has on order, it seeks to accelerate its fleet renewal strategy. To meet all of these goals, the Debtors are analyzing the benefits of rejecting leases, selling and abandoning owned aircraft and engines, and contemplating methods for the return and surrender of rejected and abandoned aircraft and engines," the company said in the filing.
Earlier this week, American filed a motion to keep 85 planes that were mostly between 11 and 13 years old. The aircraft listed were Boeing 737-800, 757-200, 767-300ER and 777-200ER models.
The carrier has already terminated leases on 20 MD-80s and four Fokker 100s and its regional carrier, American Eagle, has asked to keep 47 Bombardier CRJ-700s, paying $10.2 million to bring 19 up to date.
As of September 30, American had 616 aircraft in its fleet, as well as 52 planes that it owned or leased but was not operating.
