AMR Eagle Holding Corporation announced earlier today that the company and its subsidiaries including American Eagle and American Airlines (A.A.) filed voluntary petitions for Chapter eleven reorganization in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York. The news coincides with a change of the CEO of the Board of Directors of AMR Corporation. Thomas W. Horton replaces Gerard Arpey who chose retirement.  The worry in Belize and across the USA is about job security. News Five contacted Luis Alpuche of American Airlines and he presented us with press releases from the company’s headquarters.
