American Airlines is adding international flights in advance of its planned merger with US Airways. The carrier boosted capacity by 2.7% this quarter, and expects a full-year capacity boost of 1.5%. “We’ve been growing capacity in some growth markets, South Korea, Mexico, Central America and South America, so we’re seeing a bit of that effect in the third quarter in particular,” CEO Tom Horton said.
