Did you know that for a number of years, American Airlines has offered Electronic Invoicing to Retirees for their travel service charges?
The Invoice Distribution System (IDS) allows you to receive an invoice via your email and pay it electronically to AA. Or you can print the invoice from your email and mail it with your payment via U.S. Mail to AA.

American Airlines nearly doubled its net profit for the third quarter with $1.7 billion, or $2.49 per diluted share, based on largely lower fuel costs.
The airline's passenger unit revenue has dropped for months as a strong U.S. dollar dented sales to foreign travelers and lowered the value of foreign sales in dollar terms. A surge of flights by rivals in greater Dallas, American's hometown, has also outpaced demand and pressured fares in the United States. American said passenger unit revenue for domestic flights dropped 7.6 percent in the quarter versus a year earlier.The results compared to $942 million the airline had earned in July, August and September 2014. Not counting special net charges, the $1.9 billion in earnings this represents the highest quarterly profit in company history.
The financial results were based on a drop in revenues combined with a larger drop in expenses. Total revenue for the quarter was $10.7 billion, a decline of 3.9% from a year earlier. But total operating expenses were $8.7 billion, a decrease of 11.9% compared to a year earlier.
Fuel costs dropped 44% compared to a year earlier, to nearly $1.6 billion for the quarter. Special operating charges during the quarter totaled $165 million. These included $198 million in merger-related expenses and $38 million to dissolve a joint venture with Texas Aero Engine Service. The charges were offset by a $66 million credit from proceeds of a legal settlement.
American Airlines Group stock was down 1.9% to $45.12 in mid-morning trading Friday. The airline returned $1.63 billion to shareholders through a $1.56 billion stock buyback and a $67 million dividend. A dividend of 10 cents per share will be paid Nov. 19, 2015.
American said it repurchased 38.4 million shares of stock for $1.56 billion during the third quarter. Additionally, American paid $67 million in quarter dividends. Year to date, American has returned $2.7 billion to shareholders.
The company’s board also authorized a $2 billion buyback by the end of 2016. The company said it will start another stock repurchase program to be completed by the end of 2016, with American authorizing a total of $6 billion in buybacks this year.
If you or a family member was left behind and the flight left with open seats, please let AMRRC know. We are collecting this data because AA management is not aware that this is occurring and we want to provide them with this information.
It is not the Agent’s fault when this occurs, but rather, because of the very strict D (minus) 10 minute boarding rule directive issued by the Company. The agent MUST close the Terminal Door to the Jet-bridge 10 minutes prior to the departure time of the flight.
AMRRC has established a new EMAIL Address exclusively for you to send us the flight information when this occurs.
Please include a copy of the list, OR provide the (1) Flight Number, (2) Date, (3) From/To, (4) Departure Time , (5) how many seats were open. You can obtain this information at: Mobi.aa.com. Please also include your name, as sometimes the sender’s email address is not reflective of your name.
