American's LATAM Revenues Down Amid Competition

American Airlines earned well all across the world in 2015 — except for in Latin America and the Caribbean. It suffered a 2.8% drop in revenue passenger miles in 2015 and a 4.5% year-over-year fall in available seat miles to the region. There is little doubt that the cause was expanded offerings from rivals like JetBlue, Southwest, and Aeromexico. JetBlue in particular has ramped up its routes to the region in recent years, now serving Mexico City, Cancún, Lima, Bogotá, Medellín, Cartagena, San José, and Liberia in addition to about two dozen destinations in the Caribbean.
