    FORT WORTH, Texas , Dec. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- 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 Jan. 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 and
    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.

    I hope AMR becomes profitable again and can get off the pink sheets in 2012.
