American Airlines (AAL) might be a short-term time bomb
- American Airlines AAL is scheduled to report first-quarter 2020 results on Apr 30, before the market open.
- The company’s bottom line surpassed estimates in three of the last four quarters with in-line earnings in one.
- American Airlines’ first-quarter performance is likely to have taken a major hit. Even though passenger traffic might have been strong in January and February.
- As the company adapts to the new business environment, the extremely low-demand scenario with many countries on lockdown and wide-spread travel restrictions in place, this Fort Worth, TX-based carrier are trimming its capacity, inducing cancellation of multiple flights.
- The company fears that after restrictions are released and people are allowed to fly internationally again, many may be scared to do so with fears of COVID-19 lingering.
