American Airlines says passenger traffic down slightly in January

American Airlines said passenger traffic declined slightly in January, down 0.3 percent as the carrier increased its network capacity by 1.2 percent.

Planes were not as full as the Fort Worth-based carrier said its load factor dropped 1.1 percentage points to 78.6 percent.

American reaffirmed its earnings guidance to investors as it expects first quarter total revenues per mile to be up between 2.5 percent and 4.5 percent when compared to the same quarter last year.
