AMERICAN AIRLINES: October Revenue Cut $85MM by Pilots, Sandy
-------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that AMR Corp. reported a $164 million net loss in October
and said revenue was depressed $85 million from a combination of
disruptions caused by Hurricane Sandy and a slowdown by pilots'
protesting contract revisions.

The report relates that in an operating report filed with the
bankruptcy court, AMR said revenue in October was $1.96 billion,
resulting in a $39 million operating loss.  Reorganization costs
of $72 million contributed to the $164 million net loss.  At the
end of October, AMR had $4.22 billion in unrestricted cash, down
slightly from $4.23 billion on Sept. 30.

The airline has another $848 million in restricted cash.

                         About Tribune Co.

Headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, Tribune Co. --
http://www.tribune.com/-- is a media company, operating
businesses in publishing, interactive and broadcasting, including
ten daily newspapers and commuter tabloids, 23 television
stations, WGN America, WGN-AM and the Chicago Cubs baseball team.

The Company and 110 of its affiliates filed for Chapter 11
protection (Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case No. 08-13141) on Dec. 8,
2008.  The Debtors proposed Sidley Austin LLP as their counsel;
Cole, Schotz, Meisel, Forman & Leonard, PA, as Delaware counsel;
Lazard Ltd. and Alvarez & Marsal North America LLC as financial
advisors; and Epiq Bankruptcy Solutions LLC as claims agent.  As
of Dec. 8, 2008, the Debtors have $7,604,195,000 in total assets
and $12,972,541,148 in total debts.  Chadbourne & Parke LLP and
Landis Rath LLP serve as co-counsel to the Official Committee of
Unsecured Creditors.  AlixPartners LLP is the Committee's
financial advisor.  Landis Rath Moelis & Company serves as the
Committee's investment banker.  Thomas G. Macauley, Esq., at
Zuckerman Spaeder LLP, in Wilmington, Delaware, represents the
Committee in connection with the lawsuit filed against former
officers and shareholders for the 2007 LBO of Tribune.

Protracted negotiations and mediation efforts and numerous
proposed plans of reorganization filed by Tribune Co. and
competing creditor groups have delayed Tribune's emergence from
bankruptcy.  Many of the disputes among creditors center on the
2007 leveraged buyout fraudulence conveyance claims, the
resolution of which is a key issue in the bankruptcy case.  The
bankruptcy court has scheduled a May 16 hearing on Tribune's plan.

Judge Kevin J. Carey issued an order dated July 13, 2012,
overruling objections to the confirmation of Tribune Co. and its
debtor affiliates' Plan of Reorganization.   In November 2012,
Tribune received approval from the Federal Communications
Commission to transfer media licenses, one of the hurdles to
implementing the reorganization plan.  Aurelius Capital Management
LP failed in halting implementation of the plan pending appeal.

Bankruptcy Creditors' Service, Inc., publishes Tribune Bankruptcy
News.  The newsletter tracks the chapter 11 proceeding undertaken
by Tribune Company and its various affiliates.

                          *********

Monday's edition of the TCR delivers a list of indicative prices
for bond issues that reportedly trade well below par.  Prices are
obtained by TCR editors from a variety of outside sources during
the prior week we think are reliable.  Those sources may not,
however, be complete or accurate.  The Monday Bond Pricing table
is compiled on the Friday prior to publication.  Prices reported
are not intended to reflect actual trades.  Prices for actual
trades are probably different.  Our objective is to share
information, not make markets in publicly traded securities.
Nothing in the TCR constitutes an offer or solicitation to buy or
sell any security of any kind.  It is likely that some entity
affiliated with a TCR editor holds some position in the issuers"
public debt and equity securities about which we report.

Each Tuesday edition of the TCR contains a list of companies with
insolvent balance sheets whose shares trade higher than $3 per
share in public markets.  At first glance, this list may look like
the definitive compilation of stocks that are ideal to sell short.
Don't be fooled.  Assets, for example, reported at historical cost
net of depreciation may understate the true value of a firm's
assets.  A company may establish reserves on its balance sheet for
liabilities that may never materialize.  The prices at which
equity securities trade in public market are determined by more
than a balance sheet solvency test.

A list of Meetings, Conferences and Seminars appears in each
Wednesday's edition of the TCR.  Submissions about insolvency-
related conferences are encouraged.  Send announcements to
conferences@bankrupt.com/

On Thursdays, the TCR delivers a list of recently filed
Chapter 11 cases involving less than $1,000,000 in assets and
liabilities delivered to nation's bankruptcy courts.  The list
includes links to freely downloadable images of these small-dollar
petitions in Acrobat PDF format.

Each Friday's edition of the TCR includes a review about a book of
interest to troubled company professionals.  All titles are
available at your local bookstore or through Amazon.com.  Go to
http://www.bankrupt.com/books/to order any title today.

Monthly Operating Reports are summarized in every Saturday edition
of the TCR.

The Sunday TCR delivers securitization rating news from the week
then-ending.
