AMR Corp

Child Organization: American Airlines

AMR Corporation (NYSE: AMR) is a commercial aviation business and airline holding company based in Fort Worth, Texas, United States. Formed in 1982, as part of American Airlines's reorganization, its name derives from American Airlines's ticker symbol on the New York Stock Exchange. AMR Corporation is one of the very few larger passenger and legacy carrier airline businesses, which have not become insolvent or had to file for Chapter 11 reorgnization bankruptcy during its corporate history, indicative of its success as an airline based corporate and business entity. In addition to American Airlines, AMR owns TWA Airlines LLC, (formerly Trans World Airlines) and regional airlines American Eagle Airlines, successor to Simmons Airlines, and Executive Airlines by way of AMR Eagle Holdings Corporation. Chautauqua Airlines flown in conjunction with American Airlines marketing brand, known as AmericanConnection, are independent of AMR Corporation's divisions and subsidiaries, but do operate in conjunction with them in order to provide seamless connections to AMRs two principal airline holdings. AMR's and AA's Chairperson, President, and CEO is Gerard Arpey.

Mentioned in 17 dockets

All data is based on documents downloaded from Regulations.gov. The first table shows mentions: all documents that include the name of the company anywhere in the document or document metadata. The second table shows submissions: all documents where the submitter metadata included the company name. Each table shows the top 10 dockets, ranked by number of occurrences.

Matches are based on a search for the company name. Variations in the company name, such as acronyms, nicknames or alternate names may cause documents to be missed. The mention of a company name in a document may be incidental and does not necessarily indicate that the company has any relevance to the document. Company names that are common English words may erroneously match with text that is not referring to the company.

Not all agencies submit public comments to Regulations.gov. For a list of participating and non-participating agencies see here. Agencies that do submit to Regulations.gov have varying levels of accuracy and completeness.
