ROBERT CRANDALL TO ADDRESS LOS ANGELES WORLD AFFAIRS COUNCIL, APRIL 7

 Robert L. Crandall, chairman, president and chief executive officer, American Airlines, will address a luncheon of the Los Angeles World Affairs Council.
 TOPIC: "International Aviation: Time for a Change."
 WHEN: Wednesday, April 7
 12:45 p.m. -- Speech
 WHERE: Hotel Inter-Continental

 All members of the press are invited to cover the program. Call Frances Brohan Gawel at 213-628-2333, to attend.
 BACKGROUND: In his speech to the World Affairs Council, Crandall will examine the international aviation industry and discuss changes he believes will improve the business climate for airline companies.
 As the head of the nation's largest airline, Crandall is one of the most influential executives in the country. Presiding over American Airlines' vast network of hubs and routes, Crandall has participated in developing many of the innovations which stand to American's credit. These include the Super Saver fare, American's SABRE automation system, the AAdvantage program for frequent travelers, creation of a series of connecting hubs throughout the United States and the development of broadly participative employee relations policies.
 Like many U.S. airlines, American has felt the woes of the aviation industry. Though air travel has grown rapidly for more than a decade, airlines still have lost billions and have been forced to lay off tens of thousands of workers. Deregulation has triggered fierce fare wars; recession has meant sluggish ticket sales -- both have compounded the losses of the industry. In February, Crandall announced that American might soon have to cut its jet fleet and close two hubs, moves that would mean significant job losses.
 The Los Angeles World Affairs Council is one of the nation's leading forums for the discussion of world affairs. More than 40 major figures in foreign policy, business, economics, religion, science, and culture address the council each year. The non-profit non-partisan council is supported entirely by membership contributions from its 9,000 members.
