ITEM 7.01.
REGULATION FD DISCLOSURE.
As previously disclosed in its Form 10-Q filed on April 22, 2021 for the quarterly period ended on March 31, 2021 (the 10-Q), beginning in the first quarter of 2021, American Airlines Group Inc. (the Company) is no longer allocating aircraft fuel and related taxes or certain salaries, wages and benefits, other rent and landing fees, selling and other expenses to regional expenses on the Company’s condensed consolidated statements of operations. The Company’s first quarter of 2020 condensed consolidated statement of operations was recast to conform to the first quarter of 2021 presentation. This change in the presentation of our statement of operations had no impact on total operating expenses or net loss. See Note 10 to the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements in Part I, Item 1A of the 10-Q.
This filing is to provide each of the 2020 and 2019 quarterly reporting periods recast to conform to the first quarter of 2021 presentation. The tables below set forth the select quarterly 2020 and 2019 operating expenses that have been recast.
The information in this Item 7.01 is being furnished and shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section and shall not be deemed incorporated by reference into any registration statement or other document filed pursuant to the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.
