FORT WORTH (AP) — American Airlines says its passenger traffic and a key revenue figure rose in August compared with last summer.

The figures released Monday are a sign of continuing solid demand for air travel.

Fort Worth-based American said passenger revenue for every seat flown one mile rose 3 percent compared with August 2012. That figure rises if airlines sell more tickets at high prices and fewer at discounted sale fares.

The American increase, which also included the American Eagle regional carrier, was slightly below increases at United, Delta, Southwest and US Airways. But it still set a company record for the month of August.

With capacity growing faster than traffic, there were more empty seats. The average August flight was 85 percent full, compared with 85.8 percent a year earlier.
