American delays 787 deliveries

In an earnings call, American Airlines CFO Derek Kerr has indicated that the airline has requested that Boeing delay deliveries of the 787s it has on order by one year in order for the airline to adapt to a slowdown in international demand. Four of the 787 aircraft originally scheduled to be delivered in 2016 would now be delivered in 2017, and one other would be delivered in 2018. American plans to use its recently-delivered third 787 on next month for flights between Dallas and Chicago; before using it for an international.

During the first quarter, American Airlines total fuel expenses declined by 43% to $1.54 billion. American’s total international revenue passenger miles fell by 2.5% to 15.2 million, with a 4.1% fall in average seat mile to 11.47 cents.
