AMERICAN AIRLINES RESPONDS TO REPORTS

 DFW AIRPORT, Texas, Feb. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- American Airlines today issued the following:
 Contrary to published reports, a speech given by American Airlines Chairman and President Robert L. Crandall before a meeting of financial analysts in Florida this morning contained no announcements about layoffs, grounding of aircraft, or other definitive actions.
 The story carried in today's Fort Worth Star-Telegram is, for the most part, a simple recounting of various possible actions which the company has long stated to be under review, and which Crandall described in today's speech.
 American has made it clear on many occasions, and in many forums, that it is reviewing all of its operations and is determined to return the company to profitability by whatever means necessary at the earliest possible moment.
 Speculation about what might occur is inappropriate and irresponsible. No decisions have yet been made.
