(Reuters) - U.S. carrier American Airlines on Monday said it amended agreements with Boeing and Airbus regarding the purchases of hundreds of planes, including a landmark 2011 aircraft order.
The AMR Corp
American also said in the filing that it had revised a 2011 purchase agreement with EADS
In the summer of 2011, before its Chapter 11 filing, American announced that it agreed to buy 200 Boeing 737s and 260 Airbus A320s in what it called the largest aircraft order in aviation history.
The carrier, which filed for bankruptcy protection in November 2011, also said it restructured agreements dating back to 1997 and 2008 tied to Boeing 737, 777 and 787 models that will provide savings to American.
The revised purchase agreements are subject to U.S. Bankruptcy Court approval, American said.
