AMR (AAMRQ.PK) could resurrect a plan to spin off its American Eagle regional carrier after it exits from Chapter 11, the unit's CEO, Dan Garton, has told Bloomberg. Eagle pilots this week authorized a new labor deal, adding to approvals from flight attendants and baggage handlers, while an agreement has also been reached with mechanics.

    I have been long for a while and bought some ore three days ago. My average now is 40 cents. I am thinking in buying more. Every time I look at AA flights, they are practically all full and they charge more money than any other airline. Whats wrong then??

    Rather hit Vegas and roll the dice. Problems from sabotage of seats and fake time emergency landings to no one really caring about anything. I would rather fly another airline than risk my life on American.
    The seats may be full but are they making money?

    Regionals are worth what their contract guarantees are worth, American is intent on diversifying away from Eagle, and they have limited to no prospects of competing for expansion business. Good luck selling or spinning a rapidly emptying bag.

    So what do you think AirBoss, you seem to be very knowledgeable about this. You don't think its a good medium term investment? Do you think AA has a chance of coming out of Chapter 11??

    AAMRQ equity will almost surely be extinguished.
