Longtime airline investor TPG also (previous) has interest in buying American Airlines (AAMRQ) out of bankruptcy, according to the WSJ. Sources say the P-E firm has had discussions with the carrier and could line up a strategic buyer to join its bid. A deal - if it comes - is seen as closing several months down the road after American lightens up its debt load.
