AMR Corp. said its passenger traffic in November grew slightly, up 0.7 percent for the month.
In its monthly traffic report, the Fort Worth-based carrier said its capacity was 1.9 percent higher which led to a decrease of 1.0 percentage points in its load factor for November.
Its unit revenues also decreased 2.3 percent in November and the carrier estimates that Hurricane Sandy and a November snow storm in the northeast hurt revenues by $25 million in the month.
American Airlines said operational problems in September and October, partly due to pilots filing more last-minute maintenance requests, also cost the carrier about $30 million in revenues for November travel bookings. The pilots union has said it did not engage in a work slowdown this fall.
International traffic grew 4.6 percent in November with a 5.2 percent increase in capacity while domestic traffic dropped 1.2 percent with a 0.6 percent increase in capacity.
