American Airlines (AMR) reports its August load factor improved to 85.3% vs. 84.6% last year with traffic just slightly below last year's total - seemingly decent numbers but unlikely to stir a rally. Shares are down -1.2% AH, as the bleeding continues for AMR investors beset by high fuel costs and the outlook for weak consumer demand.
