The AA.com website today informs passengers that "American Airlines is flying normal schedules and conducting business as usual worldwide. Additional information about the Chapter 11 reorganization is available at www.aa.com/restructuring", while its social media team reassured concerned members of its loyalty program: "We intend to ensure all AAdvantage miles and Elite status earned by members remain secure and intact," with a link to an FAQ about the restructuring and AAdvantage.
