The end of the line for Executive Airlines and the American Eagle ATR 72

Executive Airlines (2nd) (San Juan) as a subsidiary of the bankrupt AMR Corporation (Dallas/Fort Worth) operates a dwindling fleet of ATR 72s in the American Eagle brand. Previously it was announced the ATRs would be pulled from the Dallas/Fort Worth and Miami hubs. Now the last bastion of ATR operations (started with the ATR 42) in San Juan appears to be endangered.

American Airlines and AMR have not confirmed the report.
