AMR says weather will take small bite out of Q2 revenue

For the second straight quarter, American Airlines’ parent company is forecasting some unexpected costs.

AMR Corp. said Friday in a filing with federal regulators that second-quarter revenue will be about $60 million lower due to storms in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and prolonged effect of Japan’s earthquake in March.

Second-quarter fuel costs and capacity are expected to remain about the same, according to the document.

Overall, AMR expects second-quarter unit revenue to increase 4.5 percent to 5.5 percent from a year earlier.

AMR shares were down 35 cents to $5.70 as of 11 a.m.
