 METRO AIRLINES REPORTS NOVEMBER TRAFFIC
 DALLAS, Dec. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Metro Airlines, Inc. (NASDAQ: MAIRC)


today announced that traffic from its continuing American Eagle operations at Dallas/Fort Worth in November 1991 declined slightly from the comparable operations a year ago. The company's total traffic for the month declined substantially from year-earlier levels due to the shutdown of Metro Express in Atlanta, the shut-down and subsequent sale of Metro Air Northeast, and sale of the company's Caribbean operations, all of which have occurred in 1991.
 From continuing operations at Dallas/Fort Worth for the month of November 1991, Metro flew 30.2 million revenue passenger miles, down 2.3 percent from 30.9 million a year ago. A revenue passenger mile is the equivalent of flying one paying passenger one mile. The company flew 48.9 million available seat miles in November 1991, down 1.6 percent from 49.7 million in November 1990. Load factor, or percentage of seats filled with paying passengers, was 61.7 percent compared to 62.2 percent in November 1990. The company carried 130,384 passengers in November 1991, a decline of 3.7 percent from 135,338 in the same month a year ago.
 In its D/FW operations for the eleven months ended Nov. 30, 1991, Metro flew 344.6 million revenue passenger miles, up 8.7 percent from 317.2 million a year ago. Available seat miles increased 7.2 percent to 537.9 million from 502.0 million. Load factor was 64.1 percent compared to 63.2 percent for the same period a year earlier. For the first eleven months of 1991, Metro's continuing operations carried 1,474,355 passengers, up 4.5 percent from 1,410,759 a year ago.
 Metro Airlines is a regional airline which operates as American Eagle, serving 25 cities from its Dallas/Fort Worth hub.
