American Airlines to pay first dividend since 1980

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — American Airlines says it will pay its first dividend since 1980.

The Fort Worth-based company announced Thursday that shareholders will get a quarterly cash dividend of 10 cents per share. American will also spend up to $1 billion to buy back shares, which raises the value of remaining shares.

American Airlines Group Inc. made the announcement as it reported net income of $864 million in the second quarter, up from $220 million a year earlier.

Excluding special charges, the profit was $1.5 billion, a quarterly record for American.

Airlines are prospering as mergers have reduced competition, making it easier to keep prices high. They're also raising billions from extra fees.
