Jan. 18 (Bloomberg) — AMR Corp.’s American Airlines said it plans to keep a group of 21 aircraft, including Boeing Co. 737-800s, as part of its bankruptcy restructuring.
American listed the planes in notices filed yesterday with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan. The Fort Worth, Texas- based company is reviewing aircraft agreements and has said it doesn’t want to retain all of the planes in its fleet under current financing terms.
AMR’s American and American Eagle commuter carrier have about 900 aircraft combined. AMR filed for bankruptcy in November.
