(Reuters) – American Airlines Group Inc <AAL.O> on Wednesday raised its second-quarter forecast for unit revenue, a closely watched performance measure for carriers, as the grounding of Boeing Co’s <BA.N> 737 MAX jets reduced its overall fleet size.

The No.1 U.S. airline said it now expects unit revenue, which compares sales to flight capacity, to increase between 3% and 4% percent in the quarter ended June, compared with its earlier forecast of a rise between 1% and 3%. (http://bit.ly/2Lf12bo)
