Item 3.01.                      Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
 
On December 27, 2011, AMR Corporation (“AMR”) received written notification from the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) that the average closing price of AMR's common stock fell below the NYSE's continued listing minimum share price standard of $1.00 over a consecutive 30-trading-day period as of December 27, 2011.  This condition subjected AMR's common stock (ticker symbol AMR), 7.875% Public Income Notes (PINES) due 2039 (ticker symbol AAR), and 9.00% Debentures due 2016 (ticker symbol AMR 16) to the NYSE's suspension and delisting procedures.  The NYSE expects that trading in AMR’s securities will be suspended prior to the opening of the market on Thursday, January 5, 2012.

AMR has informed the NYSE that, due to its recent Chapter 11 filing, it is not able to affirm an intent to cure the aforementioned share price deficiency and, accordingly, does not oppose the suspension and delisting from trading on the NYSE of its securities.  AMR expects its securities to be delisted from the NYSE upon approval by the Securities and Exchange Commission.

On December 29, 2011 AMR issued a press release that announced the matters addressed in Item 3.01 of this Form 8-K. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.

FOR RELEASE: Thursday, Dec. 29, 2011
 
AMR COMMON STOCK AND RELATED LISTED SECURITIES
TO BE DELISTED FROM NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE
 
FORT WORTH, Texas –  AMR Corporation, the parent company of American Airlines, Inc. and AMR Eagle Holding Corporation, reported that it has received written notification from the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) advising AMR that its common stock traded under the symbol AMR, its 9% Debentures due 2016 traded under the symbol AMR 16 and its 7.875% PINES (Public Income Notes) due 2039 traded under the symbol AAR will be suspended from trading on the NYSE, and that the NYSE will apply to the  Securities and Exchange Commission to commence delisting procedures for these securities.  The suspension will begin prior to the opening of the market on Thursday, Jan. 5, 2012. NYSE advised AMR that it is taking these steps because the average closing price of AMR’s common stock fell below the NYSE’s continued listing minimum share price standard of $1 over a consecutive 30-trading-day period.
Due to the company’s Chapter 11 filing, AMR is not able to affirm an intent to cure the aforementioned share price deficiency and, accordingly, does not oppose the suspension and delisting of its securities.
The company expects that price quotations for its common stock and publicly traded debt securities will be available under new symbols on the OTC Bulletin Board (OTCBB) and Pink Sheets Electronic Quotation Service as early as January 5, 2012.  The company will publicly announce the new symbols and their effective date as soon as practicable.  Information about these services is available at www.otcbb.com and www.pinksheets.com.
AMR cannot predict what the ultimate value of any of its securities may be, and it remains too early to determine whether holders of any such securities will receive any distribution in the Chapter 11 reorganization. In particular, in most Chapter 11 cases, holders of equity securities receive little or no recovery of value from their investment.

Forward Looking Statement
 
This press release contains "forward-looking statements." These statements are based on AMR management's current expectations and assumptions, and as such involve a number of risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those that the company now anticipates — both in connection with the Chapter 11 filings and AMR's business and financial prospects.

No assurance can be made that these events will come to fruition. Readers are referred to the documents filed by the company with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which further identify the important risk factors which could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements in this release.
