Article Photos: American Airlines stumbles on path to recovery 2/4

  In this Monday, Oct. 8, 2012, photo, American Airlines CEO Tom Horton talks to a reporter in New York. In September, American Airlines saw a 7.1 percent drop in domestic passengers and its on-time performance fell to 59 percent, below other big airlines. The drop is attributed to pilots who are writing up extra maintenance requests as part of an unsanctioned job action. If that wasn't bad enough, seats on three separate flights came loose.
