AMR posts $164 million loss in October

AMR Corp. posted a net loss of $164 million in October, according to a court filing made Friday afternoon.

Excluding $72 million in reorganization fees, the Fort Worth-based carrier would have posted a monthly loss of $92 million. During the bankruptcy process, AMR is required to file monthly financial reports with the court.

The company said it spent $22 million on aircraft financing renegotiations and rejections and $23 million on professional fees during the month. It also spent $27 million on "other" reorganization items which are not detailed in the report.

In early October, American had substantial delays and flight cancellations, partly due to pilots filing more last-minute maintenance reports, the carrier said. The pilots union, which is currently voting on American's latest contract offer, said it did not engage in a work slowdown.

AMR also said that its mainline carrier, American Airlines, had passenger revenues of $1.4 billion with its regional affiliates, including American Eagle, bringing in $249 million in revenues. Total revenues for the month were $1.95 billion.

The company ended the month with $494 million in cash and $3.7 billion in short-term investments for a total of about $4.2 billion on hand. That number is about the same as AMR reported in September and does not include $848 million in restricted cash.
