(Reuters) - American Airlines Group Inc (AAL.O) said on Thursday it was seeing a slow but steady rise in domestic demand, as coronavirus-led lockdowns start to ease.

The U.S. carrier, which had reduced its domestic flight schedule by 80% in May, said it plans to utilize more than 55% of its domestic capacity in July, compared with a year earlier. (bit.ly/2XB7bUB)
