Jan 28 American Airlines Group Inc, the
world's biggest carrier after a late-2013 merger with US
Airways, reported a loss of $2 billion, or $8.66 a share, for
the fourth quarter after charges tied to its reorganization.
The latest period included results for American's former
parent AMR Corp for the full quarter and for US Airways from
Dec. 9, the date of the merger's closing, through Dec. 31, the
company said on Tuesday.
When quarterly results for the former American and US
Airways were combined, it posted a profit of $436 million,
excluding special charges, up from $42 million a year earlier.
The merger was the means by which American Airlines emerged
from U.S. bankruptcy protection.
