Re: AA Reports First-Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Is this loss...excessive? Covid impacts didnt really start until mid-March in the US correct? So two weeks (in context of a quarter) and they have this big loss? I assume they were well on the way to a loss without Covid or am I totally off base here? Their financials break down revenue by region. ...

The scary thing for AA is that Q1 primarily affected Asia, to which they are the least exposed of the Big 3. The universal decline in traffic didn’t occur until the very end of Q1. When that is fully borne out in Q2 data, I shudder to see the results as they are already losing more than their peers.
