American Airlines‘ Shares rose nearly 5% in premarket trading on Thursday after the airline raised its fourth-quarter revenue and earnings estimates on the back of strong demand and higher fares.

US estimates put revenue up as much as 17% from 2019, versus a previous forecast of an 11% to 13% increase in the pre-pandemic period three years ago.

American said revenue per seat mile is likely to have grown 24% in the quarter starting in 2019, ahead of its prior guidance of 18% to 20%.

It is expected to report adjusted earnings per share of between $1.12 and $1.17, up from its previous estimate of 50 to 70 cents.

Thursday’s update is the first hint of how a major airline was coping with a bumpy end to the year as severe weather sparked mass cancellations across the US during the busy holiday travel season. American reports full results on January 26th.
