April traffic down at American Airlines

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - American Airlines says traffic and a key revenue measure both declined in April.

Fort Worth-based American said Wednesday that passenger revenue for each mile flown by every seat on its planes fell 2.9% from April 2012.

Combined with declines at other carriers, the American figure suggests that carriers aren't selling as many high-fare tickets as they did a year ago.

The same statistic declined 4 to 5% at Dallas-based Southwest Airlines, 4% at US Airways, 2% at Delta Air Lines and was flat at United Airlines in April.

Traffic on American and regional-flying affiliate American Eagle fell 1.1%. American and Eagle increased their passenger-carrying capacity by 0.4% in April.
