AMR says passenger traffic declined 0.2 percent in April

AMR Corp. said passenger traffic for American Airlines and its regional carrier American Eagle in April declined 0.2 percent as the company decreased capacity 3.2 percent.

Its consolidated load factor increased 2.5 percentage points to 82.9 percent, the Fort Worth-based company said. It added that its passenger revenue per available seat mile rose 11.6 percent compared to the previous April.

International traffic rose 1.8 percent even as it decreased capacity by 2.8 percent. Domestic traffic dropped 2.2 percent as capacity was lowered 4.1 percent.

This is the first time that AMR is reporting American Airlines and American Eagle monthly traffic results together. Previously, the company posted the results as if the two were separate carriers.
