ITEM 7.01.
REGULATION FD DISCLOSURE.
On June 3, 2022, American Airlines Group Inc. (the “Company”) is presenting information relating to its financial and operational outlook at the Bernstein Strategic Decisions Conference. As previously announced, this presentation will be webcast, with the link available at the Company’s website at www.aa.com under “Investor Relations.”
Additionally, the Company is providing investors an update regarding its financial and operational guidance for the second quarter of 2022. The Company expects an increase in second quarter revenue versus prior guidance, driven by continued strength in the demand and pricing environment. Based on its current forecast, the Company now expects its second quarter capacity (versus the second quarter of 2019) to come in at the low end of the Company’s prior guidance range.
Continued increases in the price of jet fuel are expected to result in higher second quarter fuel costs versus prior guidance, while CASM excluding fuel and net special items1 is up versus prior guidance due to slightly lower capacity and higher selling expenses. The aforementioned revenue strength is expected to more than offset these increased costs, resulting in an expected increase in pre-tax margin excluding net special items2 versus prior guidance.
