American Airlines wants more time to reorganize

AMR Corp. wants until April 15 to file a bankruptcy exit plan

AMR Corp., the parent company of American Airlines (AA), has submitted its second request to extend its deadline to file its plan to exit bankruptcy. The company had filed for bankruptcy protection in late 2011 citing high labor costs as the reason.

On Thursday, AMR and its unsecured creditors committee asked the U.S. Bankruptcy Court if it could have until April 15 to file its reorganization plan. It currently has until March 11, but the airline had asked the court last month if it could extend that date to April 1.
