American Airlines AAdvantage Investor Presentation March 2021 Exhibit 99.1
® Disclaimer Non-GAAP Financial Measures AAG sometimes uses financial measures that are derived from the condensed consolidated financial statements but that are not presented in accordance with GAAP to understand and evaluate its current operating performance and to allow for period to period comparisons. AAG believes these non-GAAP financial measures may also provide useful information to investors. These non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled non-GAAP measures of other companies, and should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for or superior to, any measure of performance, cash flow or liquidity prepared in accordance with GAAP. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate the company's current operating performance and to allow for period to period comparisons. As net special items may vary from period to period in nature and amount, the adjustment to exclude net special items allows management an additional tool to understand the company's core operating performance.

42 ® Annex A
® Annex A (1/2) Basis of Presentation of AAdvantage Summary Financial Information and Related Disclaimers The pro forma financial information of AAdvantage provided in the accompanying presentation (the “Presentation”) represents unaudited pro forma consolidated financial information of AAdvantage Holdings 1, Ltd. (“HoldCo1”), a newly established entity formed in connection with the financing described in the Presentation (the “Financing Transactions”) and for the purpose of entering into the Contribution Transactions as further described in the Presentation (collectively, the “Transactions”). Upon consummation of the Contribution Transactions, HoldCo1 will be a direct wholly-owned subsidiary of American. HoldCo1 and its subsidiaries, AAdvantage Holdings 2, Ltd. (“HoldCo2”) and AAdvantage Loyalty IP Ltd. (“Loyalty Issuer”), currently have no material assets or liabilities and have not engaged in any activities other than those related to their formation and preparation for the consummation of the Transactions. Accordingly, no historical financial information or financial statements of HoldCo1, HoldCo2 or Loyalty Issuer is presented. The unaudited pro forma consolidated financial information of HoldCo1 included in the Presentation has been prepared utilizing unaudited historical financial information of American, which represents historical activities and balances related to the AAdvantage Program as included within the historical consolidated financial statements of American, and applying certain pro forma adjustments to this historical financial information to give effect to the Contribution Transactions and the Intercompany Agreement (as described in the Presentation) as if they had been entered into and consummated on January 1, 2018. The unaudited pro forma adjustments do not include the impact of the Financing Transactions (including not providing for adjustments to reflect management fees payable under the management agreement to be entered into in connection with the Contribution Transactions which are expected to be approximately $0.6 million per year). This unaudited pro forma consolidated financial information should be read in conjunction with AAG’s and American’s historical financial statements and related notes contained in AAG’s and American’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020. Certain amounts reflected in the unaudited pro forma consolidated financial information are based on intercompany or transfer pricing arrangements that will be included in the Intercompany Agreement contemplated by the Financing Transactions. The pricing in the Intercompany Agreement may not be the same as amounts that would have been established through agreements with unrelated parties. Additionally, certain revenues and expenses have been derived from American’s consolidated financial statements and other financial records. Due to the various allocations and related party agreements, the unaudited pro forma consolidated financial information included in the Presentation may not be indicative of the conditions that would have existed or the results of operations that would have been achieved if the Contribution Transactions and the Intercompany Agreement were entered into and consummated on January 1, 2018. The unaudited pro forma consolidated financial information of HoldCo1 included in the Presentation includes unaudited pro forma adjustments that are factually supportable and directly attributable to the Contribution Transactions and the Intercompany Agreement contemplated by the Financing Transactions. In addition, with respect to the unaudited pro forma statements of income and cash flows, the unaudited pro forma adjustments are expected to have a continuing impact on HoldCo1’s consolidated results. However, the unaudited pro forma consolidated financial information of HoldCo1 presented herein does not give effect to the Financing Transactions. The unaudited pro forma consolidated financial information of HoldCo1 included in the Presentation has not been prepared in accordance with the requirements of Article 11 of Regulation S-X of the Securities Act. For instance, Article 11 would ordinarily require that such financial information give effect to the Financing Transactions and would generally not require more than one year of pro forma financial information or the preparation of pro forma statements of cash flow information. Further, certain of the financial information provided herein is not required to be included, and will not be provided, in AAG’s or American’s periodic and other reports filed with the SEC. The unaudited pro forma adjustments are based upon available information and certain assumptions that we believe are reasonable under the circumstances, as well as the expected terms of the Contribution Transactions and the Intercompany Agreement contemplated by the Financing Transactions. The unaudited pro forma consolidated financial information of HoldCo1 included in the Presentation is presented for informational purposes only, may not be indicative of what the consolidated financial condition or result of operations of HoldCo1 and its subsidiaries would have been had the Contribution Transactions and the Intercompany Agreement been entered into and consummated on January 1, 2018, and does not purport to project HoldCo1’s consolidated results of operations or financial condition for any future period or as at any future date. Neither the assumptions underlying the unaudited pro forma adjustments, nor the resulting HoldCo1 Unaudited Pro Forma Consolidated Financial Information have been audited or reviewed in accordance with any generally accepted auditing standards.
® Annex A (2/2) Set forth below is additional information regarding the components of certain line items provided with the financial information included in the Presentation: • Cash received from sales to American and other airlines. Pursuant to the Contribution Transactions and the Intercompany Agreement, Loyalty Issuer will sell miles to American as AAdvantage Program members earn miles by flying on American and other airlines that participate in the AAdvantage Program. Adjustments to Cash received from sales to American and other airlines represent the gross cash receipts from sales by Loyalty Issuer to American that would have occurred based on the terms of the Intercompany Agreement, which provide for Loyalty Issuer to earn an EBITDA margin of 20% only on mileage sales to American and not on mileage sales to American purchased by American pursuant to other airline loyalty programs. • Cash paid for redemptions. Loyalty Issuer has contracts with American, other airline partners and non-airline partners to provide goods and services for award redemptions. Adjustments to Cash paid for redemptions represent cash payments by Loyalty Issuer to American for the costs of travel awards provided by American. These costs are determined based on the rates as provided for in the Intercompany Agreement. • Cash paid for operating expenses and operating expenses, excluding depreciation and amortization. HoldCo1 and its subsidiaries are newly established special purpose entities formed for the purposes of entering into the Contribution Transactions and will not have employees or establish administrative functionality of their own. Rather, each of HoldCo1 and its subsidiaries will rely on American for such services pursuant to the Intercompany Agreement and the Management Agreement. Adjustments to Cash paid for operating expenses and operating expenses, excluding depreciation and amortization provide for the allocation of operating expenses from American based on the terms of the Intercompany Agreement and the Management Agreement. These expenses represent salaries and other costs incurred to provide HoldCo1 and its subsidiaries with services such as information technology, marketing, reservations, legal, finance and human resources, among others. • Revenues, net of redemption costs. Loyalty Issuer defers all amounts received related to the sale of miles to American and other airline partners until miles are redeemed by an AAdvantage Program member. Revenue is recognized when miles are redeemed, after adjusting for an estimate of miles that are expected to be redeposited to the accounts of AAdvantage Program members who cancel their award redemption. Adjustments to Revenues, net of redemption costs have been calculated by (1) making updates to the redemption rates to reflect the terms of the Intercompany Agreement and (2) accounting for the change in the timing of recognition of revenue from the sale of miles from flight date to redemption date, including adjustments for miles expected to be redeposited by AAdvantage Program members to their accounts as a result of the cancellation of the redemption awards prior to provision of the service. This revenue is netted against the redemption costs adjusted for redemptions expected to be cancelled by customers prior to provision of the service. Loyalty Issuer has contracts with American, other airline partners and non-air services partners to provide goods and services for award redemptions. Loyalty Issuer does not control these goods or services prior to award redemption, and accordingly, records the redemption costs against redemption revenues in its income statement. Adjustments to the redemption costs in the unaudited pro forma income statement relate to the costs of awards provided by American, which are determined based on the rates as provided for in the Intercompany Agreement. • Total liabilities. Adjustments to Total liabilities provide for the changes made to the mileage deferral and redemption rates to reflect the terms of the Intercompany Agreement and the change in timing of revenue recognition from flight date to redemption date.
