The U.S. airline expects its average daily cash burn rate for the first three months to be about $27 million per day compared to its previous forecast of $30 million, and end the quarter with about $17.3 billion in total available liquidity.

The Texas-based company expects revenue to plunge about 62% compared with the same period in 2019, and to post a loss of about $2.7 billion to $2.8 billion, excluding financial assistance under the U.S. payroll support program for airlines.

American had previously forecast a revenue decline of between 60% and 65%.

During the quarter, the airline reached an agreement with Boeing (NYSE:BA) to defer delivery of 18 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft to 2023-2024 from 2021-2022, and converted five 787-8 aircraft to 787-9 aircraft besides rescheduling delivery of remaining 14 787-8 aircraft to the first quarter of 2022.
