 METRO AIRLINES ANNOUNCES FEBRUARY TRAFFIC
 DALLAS, March 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Metro Airlines, Inc.


(NASDAQ: MAIRC), today announced that traffic from its continuing American Eagle operations at Dallas/Fort Worth (D/FW) in February 1992 was virtually unchanged from the comparable operations a year ago. The company's total traffic for the month declined from year-earlier levels due to the disposals of the company's former operations in Atlanta, the Northeast and the Caribbean, all of which occurred in 1991.
 From continuing operations at D/FW, Metro flew 26.3 million revenue- passenger miles in February of both 1992 and 1991. A revenue-passenger mile is the equivalent of flying one paying passenger one mile. The company flew 41.7 million available-seat miles in February 1992, down 7.5 percent from 45.1 million in February 1991. Load factor, or percentage of seats filled with paying passengers, increased to 63.0 percent from 58.4 percent a year ago. The company carried 112,268 passengers in February 1992, up 0.6 percent from 111,587 in the same month a year ago.
 In its D/FW operations for the two months ended Feb. 29, 1992, Metro flew 54.4 million revenue-passenger miles, up 0.1 percent from 54.3 million a year ago. Available-seat miles decreased 7.6 percent to 86.6 million from 93.7 million. Load factor was 62.9 percent compared to 58.0 percent for the same period a year earlier. For the first two months of 1992, Metro's continuing operations carried 232,050 passengers, up 0.6 percent from 230,666 a year ago.
 Metro Airlines is a regional airline which operates as American Eagle, serving 25 cities from its Dallas/Fort Worth hub.
