USA Attacks - American Airlines Issue Statement

Text of a statement issued by American Airlines:
American Airlines confirmed today that it lost two aircraft in tragic incidents this morning. American said the flights were Flight 11, a Boeing 767 en route from Boston to Los Angeles with 81 passenger, nine flight attendants and two pilots; and Flight 77, a Boeing 757 operating from Washington Dulles to Los Angeles with 58 passengers, four flight attendants and two pilots.

Because of the heightened security due to the nature of today's events, American said it is working closely with U.S. government authorities and will not release more information at this time.

The government has shut down the entire air traffic system in the United States. American, TWA and American Eagle will not operate.

"We are horrified by these tragic events," said Donald J. Carty, chairman and CEO of American Airlines. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of all involved."

Media calls should be directed to the FBI. Customers who wish to receive information about relatives should call American's response number at 1-800-245-0999.
