FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — At American Airlines, revenue is higher than expected but so are costs. The airline said Tuesday that first-quarter revenue will be a tick better than Wall Street expected. That’s an indication that demand for travel has been strong and fares are rising. However, revenue is still expected to be 16% below pre-pandemic levels in 2019. And costs are rising faster than American expected just a month ago. The mixed outlook from American could provide a hint of what other airlines will say when they begin reporting financial results for the quarter, starting with Delta Air Lines on Wednesday.
