American’t – AMR (American Airlines) file Chapter 11 bankruptcy….again

American Airlines parent AMR Corp. filed for bankruptcy after failing to secure cost-cutting labor agreements and sitting out a round of mergers that dropped it from the world’s largest airline to No. 3 in the U.S. With the filing, American became the final large U.S. full-fare airline to seek court protection from creditors. Chairman Gerard Arpey will retire and be replaced by Thomas Horton, AMR said.
