While American Airlines Group said it posted record February traffic and capacity in February, the carrier continued its decline in the wider Latin America and Caribbean region.

The carrier’s Latin American-Caribbean decline continued as its overall international traffic rose by 3.2 percent in February to 4.6 billion.
