American Airlines raised its adjusted revenues outlook for the 2nd quarter thanks to strong travel need and lower fuel costs.

Adjusted per-share revenues will be available in between $1.45 and $1.65, American approximated Wednesday, up from a previous projection of $1.20 to $1.40 per share. The Fort Worth, Texas- based airline company stated it’s now anticipating system earnings in the 3 months ending June 30 to come in 1% to 3% lower than the exact same duration in 2015, an enhancement from a previous projection for a decrease of as much as 4%.

American’s shares were up near to 1% in early morning trading while the S&P 500 was down.

American Airlines CEO Robert Isom is set up to speak at the Bernstein Strategic Decisions Conference at 4: 30 p.m. ET on Wednesday.

He will likely deal with concerns about a brand-new initial labor arrangement with pilots and whether the provider will appeal a federal judge’s judgment this month that tore down American’s collaboration in the Northeast with JetBlue Airways

The airline company is set up to report outcomes for the 2nd quarter at the end of July.
