Concentric Diversification which is the addition of new but related product, may be something that AMR would want to look into. They could add something to attract new customers too their company. Another option they could look into in Retrenchment. This is the regrouping by reducing costs and assets. (This option is already being explored). AMR may also want to think about Divestiture, selling its American Eagle division. If these strategies do not work, AMR’s last option is Liquidation. With the financial trouble that AMR has been having, this may be the only way. Future Plans:  Future Plans AMR plans to raise their profitability in the future. This is a much needed event in order for the company to stay in business. In order to boost their profitability, AMR is currently in the process of doing some restructuring. This restructuring includes: Reducing Number of flights from the Dallas/Fort Worth and the O’Hare Hubs. In 2003, 27,000 employees were laid off and more will be needed to keep the company alive. Retiring older aircrafts that are too expensive to keep running. AMR also needs to start getting rid of some of its least profitable routes, this will simplify their program and eliminate the spending of money to fly on them.
