NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of American Airlines Group Inc. (AAL) are lower by -5.34% to $40.03 this morning as the U.S. airline sector continues a decline started on Wednesday after Germany's largest carrier, Deutsche Lufthansa (DLAKY), issued a 2014 profit warning.
The carrier said it is now expecting a 2014 profit of 1 billion euros, versus its previous guidance of 1.3 to 1.5 billion euros.
