FORT WORTH (AP) - Demand for international travel has boosted traffic and a key revenue measure on American Airlines.

American parent AMR Corp. said Tuesday that passenger revenue for every seat flown one mile rose 1.7 percent in June to a record 14.39 cents.

Fort Worth-based AMR says passengers on American and American Eagle flew 12.46 billion miles last month, up 2.4 percent from 12.17 billion miles in June 2012.

The airlines raised passenger-carrying capacity even faster — by 2.6 percent. The average flight was 86.9 percent full, down from 87.1 percent a year earlier. Domestic flights were more crowded than last June.

Traffic across the Atlantic declined 1.8 percent. Traffic to and from Latin America rose 10.1 percent. Asia Pacific traffic jumped 12.2 percent.
