American Airlines shares fall 3.4 per cent after Brussles terror attack


American Airlines Group Inc. has rebuffed earlier reports that the two explosions at Brussels international airport on Tuesday happened next to its check-in desk.

Reports say bombs went off close to the American Airlines check in desk and a second bomb close to an airport Starbucks store.

The air carrier said its check-in is at row 8 in the Zaventem airport departure hall, and that the explosions did not occur at row 8.

The airline has canceled flight 751 from Brussels to Philadelphia on Tuesday after the blasts, thought to be retaliation for the capture of Paris terror suspect Salah Abdeslam.
