In a Securities and Exchange Commission filing made on Friday afternoon, AMR Corp. said that Hurricane Sandy cost the Fort Worth-based carrier about $40 million in revenues.
The storm, which hit the East Coast in late October, caused American Airlines and its regional carrier, American Eagle to cancel more than 2,000 flights.
The carrier, also took a $45 million hit on its revenues due to operational problems at American. The airline had thousands of flights delayed in early October partly due to pilots filing more last-minute maintenance requests, American said. The pilots union said it was not engaging in a work slow down.
