AMR Corporation (NYSEAMR) is a commercial aviation business and airline holding company based in Fort Worth, Texas, United States.[2] Formed in 1982, as part of American Airlines's non-bankruptcy reorganization into a Delaware corporation, its name derives from American Airlines's ticker symbol on the New York Stock Exchange. AMR Corporation is one of the very few larger passenger and legacy carrier airline businesses that has not become insolvent or had to file for Chapter 11 reorganization bankruptcy during its corporate history, indicative of its success as an airline based corporate and business entity.[citation needed] In addition to American Airlines, AMR owns TWA Airlines LLC, (formerly Trans World Airlines) and regional airlines American Eagle Airlines, successor to Simmons Airlines, and Executive Airlines by way of AMR Eagle Holdings Corporation. Chautauqua Airlines flown in conjunction with American Airlines marketing brand, known as AmericanConnection, are independent of AMR Corporation's divisions and subsidiaries, but do operate in conjunction with them in order to provide seamless connections to AMR's two principal airline holdings. AMR's and AA's Chairman, President, and CEO is Gerard Arpey.[3]
