In a bankruptcy filing made on Thursday, AMR amended its request to the bankruptcy court to extend its deadline to file a reorganization plan.
Earlier this year, AMR asked the court to extend its exclusivity period until April 1 from its current deadline of March 11. On Thursday, the carrier said it now needs until April 15 to file its reorganization plan.
The judge had not yet ruled on its earlier request and the new amended motion is also supported by the Unsecured Creditors Committee.
If it is approved by the court, it would be the fifth time that American has been granted an extension to submit its restructuring plan.
