American Airlines posted its second consecutive quarterly loss on Thursday, as the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting shutdown of the USA economy hurt demand for air travel.

While revenue of $1.01 billion slid 83% from the prior-year period, it managed to top Wall Street's estimate of $868.9 million.

It reported a net loss of $2.07 billion, or $4.82 per share, for the quarter ended June 30, compared with a profit of $662 million, or $1.49 per share, a year earlier.

"This was one of the most challenging quarters in American's history", said Chief Executive Doug Parker.
