Bankruptcy costs push AMR to net loss in May

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - The parent of American Airlines posted a net loss of $132 million in May but a slender profit of $2 million after excluding costs related to its bankruptcy case.

May's net loss for AMR Corp. was slightly smaller than April's, and revenue rose 6 percent from the previous month.

The Fort Worth-based company on Tuesday did not provide comparable figures for the same months last year.

AMR disclosed the results in a filing with the U.S. bankruptcy court in New York. AMR, since filing for Chapter 11 protection last November, has reported net losses totaling $2.8 billion including bankruptcy costs.

In May, AMR's revenue was $2.17 billion and operating expenses were $2.11 billion. Fuel was the biggest cost at $768 million.
