FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- American Airlines parent AMR Corp. has asked a federal judge for another extension, until April 15, to file a bankruptcy-reorganization plan.
The request was filed Thursday night in U.S. bankruptcy court in New York and supported by a committee representing AMR's unsecured creditors.
AMR has exclusive rights through March 11 to file a plan of reorganization and had already asked the court for permission to extend that right until April 1.
AMR filed for bankruptcy protection in November 2011. It is considering a potential merger with US Airways Group Inc.
