(c) Downgrade Drawings. Each Liquidity Provider will promptly, but in any event within ten days of its receipt of notice thereof, deliver notice of any downgrading of its debt ratings to the Subordination Agent and American. If at any time a Downgrade Event occurs with respect to any Liquidity Provider, within 10 days after such downgrading (but not later than the expiration date of each Liquidity Facility issued by such Liquidity Provider in respect of which the Downgrade Event occurs (a "Downgraded Facility")), such Liquidity Provider or American may arrange for a Replacement Liquidity Provider to issue and deliver a Replacement Liquidity Facility to the Subordination Agent. If a Downgraded Facility has not been replaced in accordance with the terms of this paragraph, the Subordination Agent shall, on such 10th day (or if such 10th day is not a Business Day, on the next succeeding Business Day) (or, if earlier, on the expiration date of such Downgraded Facility), request a drawing in accordance with and to the extent permitted by such Downgraded Facility (such drawing, a "Downgrade Drawing") of all available and undrawn amounts thereunder. Amounts drawn pursuant to a Downgrade Drawing shall be maintained and invested as provided in Section 3.05(f). Subject to Section 3.05(e)(iii), the applicable Liquidity Provider may also arrange for a Replacement Liquidity Provider to issue and deliver a Replacement Liquidity Facility at any time after such Downgrade Drawing so long as such Downgrade Drawing has not been reimbursed in full to such Liquidity Provider.

(d) Non-Extension Drawings. If any Liquidity Facility with respect to any Class of Certificates is scheduled to expire on a date (the "Stated Expiration Date") prior to the date that is 15 days after the Final Legal Distribution Date for such Class of Certificates, then the following provisions shall apply:

(i) In the case of any Liquidity Facility having extension provisions identical to those set forth in Section 2.10 of either Liquidity Facility in effect on the Closing Date, if before the 25th day prior to any anniversary date of the Closing Date (such 25th day, the "Notice Date") the Liquidity Provider shall have advised the Subordination Agent that such Liquidity Facility shall not be extended beyond the immediately following anniversary date of the Closing Date and on or before the Notice Date such Liquidity Facility shall not have been replaced in accordance with Section 3.05(e), the Subordination Agent shall, on the Notice Date (or as soon thereafter as possible but prior to the date of expiration of the expiring Liquidity Facility (a "Non-Extended Facility")), in accordance with the terms of such Non-Extended Facility, request a drawing under such Non-Extended Facility (such drawing, a "Non-Extension Drawing") of all available and undrawn amounts thereunder.

(ii) In the case of any other Liquidity Facility, no earlier than the 60th day and no later than the 40th day prior to the then applicable Stated Expiration Date, the Subordination Agent shall request in writing that such Liquidity Provider extend the Stated Expiration Date to the earlier of (i) the date that is 15 days after the Final Legal Distribution Date for such Class of

33


Certificates and (ii) the date that is the day immediately preceding the 364th day after the last day of the Consent Period (unless the obligations of such Liquidity Provider thereunder are earlier terminated in accordance with such Liquidity Facility). Whether or not the applicable Liquidity Provider has received a request from the Subordination Agent, such Liquidity Provider shall by notice (the "Consent Notice") to the Subordination Agent, during the period commencing on the date that is 60 days prior to the then effective Stated Expiration Date (or if earlier, the date of such Liquidity Provider's receipt of such request, if any, from the Subordination Agent) and ending on the date that is 25 days prior to such Stated Expiration Date (the "Consent Period") advise the Subordination Agent whether, in its sole discretion, it agrees to so extend the Stated Expiration Date; provided, that such extension shall not be effective with respect to such Liquidity Provider if, by notice (the "Withdrawal Notice") to the Subordination Agent prior to the end of the Consent Period, such Liquidity Provider revokes its Consent Notice. If a Liquidity Provider advises the Subordination Agent on or before the end of the Consent Period that such Stated Expiration Date shall not be so extended or fails to irrevocably and unconditionally advise the Subordination Agent on or before the end of the Consent Period that such Stated Expiration Date shall be so extended or gives a Withdrawal Notice to the Subordination Agent prior to the end of the Consent Period (and, in each case, if such Liquidity Provider shall not have been replaced in accordance with Section 3.05(e)), the Subordination Agent shall, on the date on which the Consent Period ends (or as soon as possible thereafter but prior to the Stated Expiration Date), in accordance with and to the extent permitted by the terms of the Non-Extended Facility, request a Non-Extension Drawing under such Non-Extended Facility of all available and undrawn amounts thereunder.

Amounts drawn pursuant to a Non-Extension Drawing shall be maintained and invested in accordance with Section 3.05(f).

(e) Issuance of Replacement Liquidity Facility.

If such Replacement Liquidity Facility is provided at any time after a Downgrade Drawing, a Non-Extension Drawing or a Special Termination Drawing has been made, all funds on deposit in the relevant Cash Collateral Account resulting from such Downgrade Drawing or Non-Extension Drawing will be returned to the Liquidity Provider being replaced.

(ii) If any Liquidity Provider shall determine not to extend its Liquidity Facility in accordance with Section 3.05(d), then such Liquidity Provider may, at its option, arrange for a Replacement Liquidity Facility to replace such Liquidity Facility during the period no earlier than 40 days and no later than 25 days prior to the then effective Stated Expiration Date of such Liquidity Facility. At any time after a Non-Extension Drawing has been made under any Liquidity Facility, the Liquidity Provider thereunder may, at its option, arrange for a Replacement Liquidity Facility to replace the Liquidity Facility under which such Non-Extension Drawing has been made.

Subject to Section 4.01(a)(iii), if the Equipment Notes issued pursuant to any Indenture have been Accelerated following an Indenture Event of Default with respect thereto, the Controlling Party may direct the Subordination Agent to sell, assign, contract to sell or otherwise dispose of and deliver all (but not less than all) of such Equipment Notes to any Person at public or private sale, at any location at the option of the Controlling Party, all upon such terms and conditions as the Controlling Party may reasonably deem advisable and in accordance with applicable law.

(ii) Following the occurrence and during the continuation of an Indenture Event of Default under any Indenture, in the exercise of remedies pursuant to such Indenture, the Loan Trustee under such Indenture may be directed to lease the related Aircraft to any Person (including American) so long as the Loan Trustee in doing so acts in a "commercially reasonable" manner within the meaning of Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code as in effect in any applicable jurisdiction (including Sections 9-610 and 9-627 thereof).

(iii) Notwithstanding the foregoing, so long as any Certificates remain Outstanding, during the period ending on the date which is nine months after the earlier of (x) the Acceleration of the Equipment Notes issued pursuant to any Indenture or (y) the occurrence of

Intercreditor Agreement (2011-2)

an American Bankruptcy Event, without the consent of each Trustee (other than the Trustee of any Trust all of the Certificates of which are held or beneficially owned by American and/or its Affiliates), no Aircraft subject to the Lien of such Indenture or such Equipment Notes may be sold if the net proceeds from such sale would be less than the Minimum Sale Price for such Aircraft or such Equipment Notes.

(iv) Upon the occurrence and continuation of an Indenture Event of Default under any Indenture, the Subordination Agent will obtain three desktop appraisals from the Appraisers selected by the Controlling Party setting forth the current market value, current lease rate and distressed value (in each case, as defined by the International Society of Transport Aircraft Trading or any successor organization) of the Aircraft subject to such Indenture (each such appraisal, an "Appraisal" and the current market value appraisals being referred to herein as the "Post-Default Appraisals"). For so long as any Indenture Event of Default shall be continuing under any Indenture, and without limiting the right of the Controlling Party to request more frequent Appraisals, the Subordination Agent will obtain updated Appraisals on the date that is 364 days from the date of the most recent Appraisal (or if an American Bankruptcy Event shall have occurred and is continuing, on the date that is 180 days from the date of the most recent Appraisal) and shall (acting on behalf of each Trustee) post such Appraisals on DTC's Internet bulletin board or make such other commercially reasonable efforts as the Subordination Agent may deem appropriate to make such Appraisals available to all Certificateholders.

(b) Following the occurrence and during the continuance of an Indenture Event of Default under any Indenture, the Controlling Party shall take such actions as it may reasonably deem most effectual to complete the sale or other disposition of the relevant Aircraft or Equipment Notes. In addition, in lieu of any sale, assignment, contract to sell or other disposition, the Controlling Party may maintain or cause the Subordination Agent to maintain possession of such Equipment Notes and continue to apply monies received in respect of such Equipment Notes in accordance with Article III hereof. In addition, in lieu of such sale, assignment, contract to sell or other disposition, or in lieu of such maintenance of possession, the Controlling Party may direct the Subordination Agent to, subject to the terms and conditions of the related Indenture, instruct the Loan Trustee under such Indenture to foreclose on the Lien on the related Aircraft or to take any other remedial action permitted under such Indenture or under any applicable law.

(c) If following an American Bankruptcy Event and during the pendency thereof, the Controlling Party receives a proposal from or on behalf of American to restructure the financing of any one or more of the Aircraft, the Controlling Party shall promptly thereafter give the Subordination Agent, each Trustee and each Liquidity Provider that has not made a Final Drawing notice of the material economic terms and conditions of such restructuring proposal whereupon the Subordination Agent acting on behalf of each Trustee shall post such terms and conditions of such restructuring proposal on DTC's Internet bulletin board or make such other commercially reasonable efforts as the Subordination Agent may deem appropriate to make such terms and conditions available to all Certificateholders. Thereafter, neither the Subordination Agent nor any Trustee, whether acting on instructions of the Controlling Party or otherwise, may, without the consent of each Trustee and each Liquidity Provider that has not made a Final Drawing, enter into any term sheet, stipulation or other agreement (a "Restructuring Arrangement") (whether in the form of an adequate protection stipulation, an extension under

Intercreditor Agreement (2011-2)

Section 1110(b) of the Bankruptcy Code or otherwise) to effect any such restructuring proposal with or on behalf of American unless and until the material economic terms and conditions of such restructuring proposal shall have been made available to all Certificateholders and each Liquidity Provider that has not made a Final Drawing for a period of not less than 15 calendar days (except that such requirement shall not apply to any such term sheet, stipulation or other agreement that is to be effective on or as of any date occurring during the 60-Day Period and that is initially effective for a period not exceeding three months from the expiry of the 60-Day Period (an "Interim Restructuring Arrangement")). The foregoing provisions of this Section 4.01(c): (i) shall not apply to any extension of a Restructuring Arrangement with respect to which such provisions have been complied with in connection with the original entry thereof if the possibility of such extension has been disclosed in satisfaction of the notification requirements of such provisions and such extension shall not amend or modify any of the other terms and conditions of such Restructuring Arrangement and (ii) shall apply to the initial extension of an Interim Restructuring Arrangement beyond the three months following the expiry of the 60-Day Period but not to any subsequent extension of such Interim Restructuring Arrangement, if the possibility of such subsequent extension has been disclosed in satisfaction of the notification requirements of such provisions and such subsequent extension shall not amend or modify any of the other terms and conditions of such Interim Restructuring Arrangement. In the event that any Certificateholder gives irrevocable notice of the exercise of its right to purchase all (but not less than all) of the Class of Certificates represented by the then Controlling Party pursuant to the applicable Trust Agreement, prior to the expiry of the 15-day notice period specified above, such Controlling Party may not direct the Subordination Agent or any Trustee to enter into any such restructuring proposal with respect to any of the Aircraft, unless and until such Certificateholder shall fail to purchase such Class of Certificates on the date that it is required to make such purchase.

Section 4.02. Remedies Cumulative. To the extent permitted by applicable law, each and every right, power and remedy given to the Trustees, the Liquidity Providers, the Controlling Party or the Subordination Agent specifically or otherwise in this Agreement shall be cumulative and shall be in addition to every other right, power and remedy herein specifically given or now or hereafter existing at law, in equity or by statute, and each and every right, power and remedy whether specifically herein given or otherwise existing may, subject always to the terms and conditions hereof, be exercised from time to time and as often and in such order as may be deemed expedient by any Trustee, any Liquidity Provider, the Controlling Party or the Subordination Agent, as appropriate, and the exercise or the beginning of the exercise of any right, power or remedy shall not be construed to be a waiver of the right to exercise at the same time or thereafter any other right, power or remedy. No delay or omission by any Trustee, any Liquidity Provider, the Controlling Party or the Subordination Agent in the exercise of any right, remedy or power or in the pursuit of any remedy shall, to the extent permitted by applicable law, impair any such right, power or remedy or be construed to be a waiver of any default or to be an acquiescence therein.

Section 4.03. Discontinuance of Proceedings. In case any party to this Agreement (including the Controlling Party in such capacity) shall have instituted any Proceeding to enforce any right, power or remedy under this Agreement by foreclosure, entry or otherwise, and such Proceeding shall have been discontinued or abandoned for any reason or shall have been determined adversely to the Person instituting such Proceeding, then and in

every such case each such party shall, subject to any determination in such Proceeding, be restored to its former position and rights hereunder, and all rights, remedies and powers of such party shall continue as if no such Proceeding had been instituted.

Section 4.04. Right of Certificateholders and the Liquidity Providers to Receive Payments Not to Be Impaired. Anything in this Agreement to the contrary notwithstanding but subject to each Trust Agreement, the right of any Certificateholder or any Liquidity Provider, respectively, to receive payments hereunder (including, without limitation, pursuant to Section 3.02) when due, or to institute suit for the enforcement of any such payment on or after the applicable Distribution Date, shall not be impaired or affected without the consent of such Certificateholder or such Liquidity Provider, respectively.

The provisions of this Section 6.07 shall survive the termination of this Agreement.

If such bank, trust company or other financial institution or such corporation publishes reports of condition at least annually, pursuant to law or to the requirements of federal, state, territorial or District of Columbia supervising or examining authority, then for the purposes of this Section 6.09 the combined capital and surplus of such bank, trust company or other financial institution or such corporation shall be deemed to be its combined capital and surplus as set forth in its most recent report of condition so published.

In case at any time the Subordination Agent shall cease to be eligible in accordance with the provisions of this Section 6.09, the Subordination Agent shall resign immediately in the manner and with the effect specified in Section 7.01.

ARTICLE VII

SUCCESSOR SUBORDINATION AGENT

Section 7.01. Replacement of Subordination Agent; Appointment of Successor. (a) The Subordination Agent or any successor thereto must resign if at any time it fails to comply with Section 6.09 and may resign at any time without cause by giving 60 days' prior written notice to American, the Trustees and the Liquidity Providers. The Controlling Party or American (only so long as no Indenture Event of Default has occurred or is continuing) may remove the Subordination Agent for cause by so notifying the Subordination Agent and may appoint a successor Subordination Agent. The Controlling Party (or the party that would be the Controlling Party if an Indenture Event of Default had occurred) shall remove the Subordination Agent if:

(1) the Subordination Agent fails to comply with Section 6.09;

(2) the Subordination Agent is adjudged bankrupt or insolvent or files a bankruptcy petition;

(3) a receiver of the Subordination Agent shall be appointed or any public officer shall take charge or control of the Subordination Agent or its property or affairs for the purpose of rehabilitation, conservation or liquidation; or

(4) the Subordination Agent otherwise becomes incapable of acting.

If the Subordination Agent resigns or is removed or if a vacancy exists in the office of Subordination Agent for any reason (the Subordination Agent in such event being referred to herein as the retiring Subordination Agent), the Controlling Party (or the party that would be the Controlling Party if an Indenture Event of Default had occurred) shall promptly appoint a successor Subordination Agent. If a successor Subordination Agent shall not have been appointed within 60 days after such notice of resignation or removal, the retiring Subordination Agent, one or more of the Trustees or one or more of the Liquidity Providers may petition any court of competent jurisdiction for the appointment of a successor Subordination Agent to act until such time, if any, as a successor shall have been appointed as provided above.

A successor Subordination Agent shall deliver (x) a written acceptance of its appointment as Subordination Agent hereunder to the retiring Subordination Agent and (y) a written assumption of its obligations hereunder and under each Liquidity Facility to each party hereto, upon which the resignation or removal of the retiring Subordination Agent shall become effective, and the successor Subordination Agent shall have all the rights, powers and duties of the Subordination Agent under this Agreement. The successor Subordination Agent shall mail a notice of its succession to American, the Liquidity Providers and the Trustees. The retiring Subordination Agent shall promptly transfer its rights under each of the Liquidity Facilities and all of the property and all books and records, or true, complete and correct copies thereof, held by it as Subordination Agent to the successor Subordination Agent.

If the Subordination Agent fails to comply with Section 6.09 (to the extent applicable), one or more of the Trustees or one or more of the Liquidity Providers may petition a

Intercreditor Agreement (2011-2)

47


court of competent jurisdiction for the removal of the Subordination Agent and the appointment of a successor Subordination Agent.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, no resignation or removal of the Subordination Agent shall be effective unless and until a successor has been appointed. No appointment of a successor Subordination Agent shall be effective unless and until the Rating Agencies shall have delivered a Ratings Confirmation with respect to each Class of Certificates then rated by the Rating Agencies.

(b) Any corporation, bank, trust company or other financial institution into which the Subordination Agent may be merged or converted or with which it may be consolidated, or any corporation, bank, trust company or other financial institution resulting from any merger, conversion or consolidation to which the Subordination Agent shall be a party, or any corporation, bank, trust company or other financial institution succeeding to all or substantially all of the corporate trust business of the Subordination Agent, shall be the successor of the Subordination Agent hereunder, provided, that such corporation, bank, trust company or other financial institution shall be otherwise qualified and eligible under Section 6.09, without the execution or filing of any paper or any further act on the part of any of the parties hereto, except that such corporation, bank, trust company or other financial institution shall give prompt notice of such transaction to the Liquidity Providers and American.

ARTICLE VIII

SUPPLEMENTS AND AMENDMENTS

Section 8.01. Amendments, Waivers, Etc. (a) This Agreement may not be supplemented, amended or modified without the consent of each Trustee (acting, except in the case of any amendment pursuant to Section 3.05(e)(v) or any amendment contemplated by the last sentence of this Section 8.01(a), with the consent of holders of Outstanding Certificates of the related Class evidencing Fractional Undivided Interests in the related Trust aggregating not less than a majority in interest in such Trust or as otherwise authorized pursuant to the relevant Trust Agreement (including, without limitation, without the consent of the Certificateholders to the extent permitted thereby, Section 9.01 thereof)), the Subordination Agent and each Liquidity Provider; provided, however, that this Agreement may be supplemented, amended or modified without the consent of any Trustee or the Subordination Agent in order (i) to cure any ambiguity or omission or to correct any mistake, (ii) to correct or supplement any provision, or (iii) to make any other provision in regard to matters or questions arising hereunder that will not materially adversely affect the interests of any Trustee or the holders of the related Class of Certificates, and without the consent of any Liquidity Provider if such supplement, amendment or modification is in accordance with Section 8.01(c) or 8.01(d); provided, further, however, that, if such supplement, amendment or modification (x) would directly or indirectly amend, modify or supersede, or otherwise conflict with, Section 2.02(b), 3.05(c), 3.05(e), 3.05(f), 3.05(m), 4.01(a)(ii) or 4.01(c), this proviso of Section 8.01(a), the last sentence of Section 8.01(a), Section 8.01(c), 8.01(d) or 9.06 (collectively, the "American Provisions"), (y) would otherwise affect the interests of any potential Replacement Liquidity Provider or replacement Depositary or of American with respect to American's ability to replace any Liquidity Facility or the Depositary or with respect to American's payment obligations under any Operative Agreement

or (z) is made pursuant to the last sentence of this Section 8.01(a) or pursuant to Section 8.01(c) or pursuant to Section 8.01(d), then such supplement, amendment or modification shall not be effective without the additional written consent of American. Notwithstanding the foregoing, without the consent of each Certificateholder affected thereby and each Liquidity Provider, no supplement, amendment or modification of this Agreement may (i) reduce the percentage of the interest in any Trust evidenced by the Certificates issued by such Trust necessary to consent to modify or amend any provision of this Agreement or to waive compliance therewith or (ii) except as provided in the last sentence of this Section 8.01(a) or Section 8.01(c) or Section 8.01(d), modify Section 2.04, 3.02 or 3.03 hereof relating to the distribution of monies received by the Subordination Agent hereunder from the Equipment Notes or pursuant to the Liquidity Facilities. Nothing contained in this Section 8.01(a) shall require the consent of a Trustee at any time following the payment of Final Distributions with respect to the related Class of Certificates. If the Replacement Liquidity Facility for any Liquidity Facility is to be comprised of more than one instrument as contemplated by the definition of the term "Replacement Liquidity Facility", then each party hereto agrees to amend this Agreement and the other Operative Agreements to incorporate appropriate mechanics for multiple Liquidity Facilities for a single Trust.

(b) In the event that the Subordination Agent, as the registered holder of any Equipment Notes, receives a request for its consent to any amendment, supplement, modification, approval, consent or waiver under such Equipment Notes, the Indenture pursuant to which such Equipment Notes were issued or the related Participation Agreement, the Parent Guarantee or other related document, (i) if no Indenture Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing with respect to such Indenture, the Subordination Agent shall request directions with respect to each series of such Equipment Notes from the Trustee of the Trust which holds such Equipment Notes and shall vote or consent in accordance with the directions of such Trustee and (ii) if any Indenture Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing with respect to such Indenture, the Subordination Agent will exercise its voting rights as directed by the Controlling Party, subject to Sections 4.01 and 4.04. Notwithstanding the foregoing, without the consent of each Liquidity Provider and each Certificateholder holding Certificates representing a Fractional Undivided Interest in the Equipment Notes under the applicable Indenture held by the Subordination Agent, no such amendment, supplement, modification, approval, consent or waiver shall (i) reduce the principal amount of, Premium, if any, or interest on, any Equipment Note under such Indenture; (ii) change the date on which any principal amount of, Premium, if any, or interest on any Equipment Note under such Indenture, is due or payable; (iii) create any Lien with respect to the Collateral subject to such Indenture prior to or pari passu with the Lien thereon under such Indenture except such as are permitted by such Indenture; provided, that, without the consent of each Certificateholder, no such amendment, supplement, modification, approval, consent or waiver shall modify Section 3.03 or Section 9.02(a)(3) of such Indenture or deprive any Certificateholder of the benefit of the Lien of such Indenture on such Collateral, except as provided in connection with the exercise of remedies under Article IV of such Indenture; (iv) reduce the percentage of the outstanding principal amount of the Equipment Notes under such Indenture the consent of whose holders is required for any supplemental agreement, or the consent of whose holders is required for any waiver of compliance with certain provisions of such Indenture or of certain defaults thereunder or their consequences provided for in such Indenture; or (v) make any change in Section 4.05 or Section 9.02 of such Indenture, except to provide that certain other provisions of such Indenture

cannot be modified or waived without the consent of each holder of an Equipment Note under such Indenture affected thereby.

(c) If Series B Equipment Notes (or Additional Equipment Notes), with respect to all of the Aircraft for which Series B Equipment Notes (or, as the case may be, Additional Equipment Notes) are at the time outstanding, are redeemed and new Equipment Notes of corresponding series are to be issued in accordance with the terms of Section 2.11(b) of each Indenture and Section 4(a)(v) of the Note Purchase Agreement, such series of new Equipment Notes (the "Refinancing Equipment Notes") shall be issued to a new pass through trust (a "Refinancing Trust") that issues a class of pass through certificates (the "Refinancing Certificates") to certificateholders (the "Refinancing Certificateholders") pursuant to a pass through trust agreement (a "Refinancing Trust Agreement") with a trustee (a "Refinancing Trustee"). A Refinancing Trust, a Refinancing Trustee and the Refinancing Certificates shall be subject to all of the provisions of this Agreement in the same manner as the Trust, the Trustee and the Certificates of the Class corresponding to the series of the refinanced Equipment Notes, including, the subordination of the Refinancing Certificates to the extent provided herein to the Administration Expenses, the Liquidity Obligations, the Class A Certificates and, if applicable, the Class B Certificates. Such issuance of Refinancing Equipment Notes and Refinancing Certificates and the amendment of this Agreement as provided below shall require Ratings Confirmation with respect to each Class of Certificates then rated by the Rating Agencies and shall not materially adversely affect any of the Trustees in their individual capacities or any of the Liquidity Providers. This Agreement shall be amended by written agreement of American and the Subordination Agent to give effect to the issuance of the Refinancing Certificates subject to the following terms and conditions:

(i) the Refinancing Trustee shall be added as a party to this Agreement;

(ii) the definitions of "Certificate", "Class", "Class B Certificates", "Final Legal Distribution Date", "Trust", "Trust Agreement" and "Controlling Party" (and such other applicable definitions) shall be revised, as appropriate, to reflect such issuance (and the subordination of the Refinancing Certificates and the Refinancing Equipment Notes);

(iii) the Refinancing Certificates may have the benefit of credit support similar to the Class A Liquidity Facility or different therefrom and claims for fees, interest, expenses, reimbursement of advances and other obligations arising from such credit support (A) in the case of any Refinancing Certificates issued in respect of the Class B Certificates, may rank pari passu with similar claims in respect of the Class A Liquidity Facility and (B) in the case of any Refinancing Certificates issued in respect of any Additional Certificates, shall be subordinated to the Administration Expenses, the Liquidity Obligations, the Class A Certificates and the Class B Certificates; provided, that in each case Ratings Confirmation with respect to each Class of Certificates then rated by the Rating Agencies and the prior written consent of the Liquidity Providers shall have been obtained;

(iv) the Refinancing Certificates cannot be issued to American but may be issued to any of American's Affiliates so long as such Affiliate shall have bankruptcy remote and special purpose provisions in its certificate of incorporation or other

organizational documents and any subsequent transfer of the Refinancing Certificates to any Affiliate of American shall be similarly restricted; and

(v) the scheduled payment dates on the Refinancing Equipment Notes shall be the Regular Distribution Dates.

The issuance of the Refinancing Certificates in compliance with all of the foregoing terms of this Section 8.01(c), and any related amendment of the Parent Guarantee described in Section 9.03 of the Indentures, shall not require the consent of any of the Trustees or the holders of any Class of Certificates. Each of the Liquidity Providers hereby agrees and confirms that it shall be deemed to consent to any issuance and amendment in accordance with this Section 8.01(c) (subject to the Liquidity Providers' consent right in Section 8.01(c)(iii)) and that any such issuance and amendment shall not affect any of its respective obligations under the applicable Liquidity Facility, provided, that a condition to the issuance of any Refinancing Certificates issued in respect of a Class of Certificates with a Liquidity Facility shall be the payment in full of all amounts owed to the Liquidity Provider under such Liquidity Facility and the termination of such Liquidity Facility upon the issuance of the Refinancing Certificates. The Subordination Agent shall deliver to each Trustee and each Liquidity Provider (other than the Liquidity Provider of such terminated Liquidity Facility) a copy of the amendments made to this Agreement and all opinions, certificates and other documents delivered in connection with the issuance of any Refinancing Certificates.

(d) Pursuant to the terms of Section 2.02 of each Indenture and Section 4(a)(v) of the Note Purchase Agreement, Series B Equipment Notes or one additional series of Equipment Notes (the "Additional Equipment Notes"), which shall be subordinated in right of payment to (in the case of the Series B Equipment Notes) the Series A Equipment Notes or (in the case of the Additional Equipment Notes) the Series A Equipment Notes and the Series B Equipment Notes, in each case to the extent provided in the Indentures, may be issued at any time, provided that the Additional Equipment Notes may be issued under an Indenture only if the Series B Equipment Notes shall have been issued under such Indenture prior thereto or concurrently therewith. If the Series B Equipment Notes are issued under any Indenture, such Series B Equipment Notes shall be issued to the Class B Trust that issues the Class B Certificates to the Class B Certificateholders pursuant to the Class B Trust Agreement. If any Additional Equipment Notes are issued under any Indenture, such Additional Equipment Notes shall be issued to a new pass through trust ("Additional Trust") that issues a class of pass through certificates (the "Additional Certificates") to certificateholders (the "Additional Certificateholders") pursuant to a pass through trust agreement (an "Additional Trust Agreement") with a trustee (an "Additional Trustee"). In the case of the issuance of the Additional Certificates, this Agreement, including without limitation Sections 2.04, 3.01 and 3.02 hereof, shall be amended by written agreement of American and the Subordination Agent to provide for the subordination of the Additional Certificates to, and to provide for distributions on the Additional Certificates after payment of, the Administration Expenses, the Liquidity Obligations, the Class A Certificates and the Class B Certificates (subject to clause (vi) below). The issuance of the Class B Certificates or the Additional Certificates, and the amendment of this Agreement as provided below (x) shall require Ratings Confirmation with respect to each Class of Certificates then rated by the Rating Agencies, (y) in the case of the issuance of the Class B Certificates, if the Class B Certificates are to have the benefit of a Class B Liquidity Facility and

51


the Required Amount of the Class B Liquidity Facility would, at any date of determination, exceed the amount set forth in Schedule A attached hereto for the date most recently preceding such date of determination (assuming that, as of such date of determination, the Pool Balance of the Class B Certificates has been reduced by all Expected Distributions on the Class B Certificates in respect of all Distribution Dates prior to such date of determination), shall require the prior written consent of the Class A Liquidity Provider and (z) shall not materially adversely affect any Trustee then party hereto in its individual capacity. This Agreement shall be amended by written agreement of American and the Subordination Agent to give effect to the issuance of the Class B Certificates or Additional Certificates subject to the following terms and conditions:

(i) each of the Class B Trustee or the Additional Trustee, as applicable, and (if applicable) the Class B Liquidity Provider and the provider of any credit support for the Additional Certificates shall be added as a party to this Agreement;

(ii) in the case of the Class B Certificates, all Class B Related Terms shall be revised, as appropriate, to reflect the issuance of the Class B Certificates and become effective upon the accession hereto of the Class B Trustee and (if applicable) the Class B Liquidity Provider, and the terms "Final Legal Distribution Date" and "Stated Interest Rate" to specify such date and rate for the Class B Certificates;

(iii) in the case of the Additional Certificates, the definitions of "Certificate", "Class", "Equipment Notes", "Final Legal Distribution Date", "Trust", "Trust Agreement", and "Controlling Party" (and such other applicable definitions) shall be revised, as appropriate, to reflect the issuance of the Additional Certificates (and the subordination thereof);

(iv) in the event that Class B Certificates are issued prior to the Delivery Period Termination Date, the definitions of Deposit Agreement, Escrow and Paying Agent Agreement, Escrow Agent, Escrow Receipts, Paying Agent, Paying Agent Account, Expected Distributions, Final Distributions and Pool Balance (and any other applicable definition) and the related provisions hereof shall be appropriately revised to reflect any applicable deposit and escrow arrangement in relation to the Class B Certificates;

(v) in the case of the Class B Certificates, if the Class B Certificates are to have the benefit of a Class B Liquidity Facility, Section 3.05 and any other provisions hereof shall be revised to the extent necessary to reflect the terms and conditions of the Class B Liquidity Facility, provided that such revisions shall not materially adversely affect the Class A Liquidity Provider;

(vi) in the case of the Additional Certificates, Section 3.02 may be revised, with respect to any Additional Certificates, to provide for the distribution of "Adjusted Interest" for such Additional Certificates (calculated in a manner substantially similar to the calculation of Class B Adjusted Interest) after the Class B Adjusted Interest but before Expected Distributions on the Class A Certificates, provided, that such revision shall not adversely affect any Liquidity Provider (as determined by such Liquidity Provider in its reasonable discretion);

(vii) the Additional Certificates may have the benefit of credit support similar to the Class A Liquidity Facility or different therefrom, provided that (A) claims for fees,

interest, expenses, reimbursement of advances and other obligations arising from such credit support shall be subordinated to the Administration Expenses, the Liquidity Obligations, the Class A Certificates and the Class B Certificates and (B) Ratings Confirmation with respect to each Class of Certificates then rated by the Rating Agencies and the prior written consent of the Liquidity Providers shall have been obtained;

(viii) the Class B Certificates or the Additional Certificates may be rated by the Rating Agencies;

(ix) the Class B Certificates or Additional Certificates cannot be issued to American but may be issued to any of American's Affiliates so long as such Affiliate shall have bankruptcy remote and special purpose provisions in its certificate of incorporation or other organizational documents and any subsequent transfer of the Class B Certificates or the Additional Certificates to any Affiliate of American shall be similarly restricted; and

(x) the scheduled payment dates on the Series B Equipment Notes or Additional Equipment Notes shall be the Regular Distribution Dates.

The issuance of the Class B Certificates or the Additional Certificates in compliance with all of the foregoing terms of this Section 8.01(d), and any amendment of the Parent Guarantee described in Sections 9.03 of the Indentures, shall not require the consent of any of the Trustees then party hereto or the holders of any Class of Certificates. The Class A Liquidity Provider hereby agrees and confirms that it shall be deemed to consent to any issuance and amendment in accordance with this Section 8.01(d) (subject, in the case of the Class B Certificates, to the Class A Liquidity Provider's consent right in Section 8.01(d)(y), to the extent applicable, and in the case of the Additional Certificates, to the Class A Liquidity Provider's consent right in Section 8.01(d)(vii)) and that any such issuance and amendment shall not affect any of its obligations under the Class A Liquidity Facility.

(a) As between the Liquidity Providers (and any additional liquidity providers in respect of any class of Refinancing Certificates or any Additional Certificates), on the one hand, and the Trustees (and any Refinancing Trustees or an Additional Trustee) and the Certificateholders (and any Refinancing Certificateholders or Additional Certificateholders), on the other hand, and as among the Trustees (and any Refinancing Trustees or an Additional Trustee) and the related Certificateholders (and any Refinancing Certificateholders or Additional Certificateholders) this Agreement shall be a subordination agreement for purposes of Section 510 of the United States Bankruptcy Code, as amended from time to time.

(b) Notwithstanding the provisions of this Agreement, if prior to the payment in full to the Liquidity Providers of all Liquidity Obligations then due and payable any party hereto shall have received any payment or distribution in respect of Equipment Notes or any other amount under the Indentures or other Operative Agreements which, had the subordination provisions of this Agreement been properly applied to such payment, distribution or other amount, would not have been distributed to such Person, then such payment, distribution or other amount shall be received and held in trust by such Person and paid over or delivered to the Subordination Agent for application as provided herein.

(c) If any Trustee, any Liquidity Provider or the Subordination Agent receives any payment in respect of any obligations owing or amounts distributable hereunder (or, in the case of the Liquidity Providers, in respect of the Liquidity Obligations), which is subsequently invalidated, declared preferential, set aside and/or required to be repaid to a trustee, receiver or other party, then, to the extent of such payment, such obligations or amounts (or, in the case of the Liquidity Providers, such Liquidity Obligations) intended to be satisfied shall be revived and continue in full force and effect as if such payment had not been received.

(d) The Trustees (on behalf of themselves and the holders of Certificates), the Liquidity Providers and the Subordination Agent expressly confirm and agree that the payment priorities and subordination specified in Articles II and III shall apply in all circumstances, notwithstanding (x) the fact that the obligations owed to the Trustees are secured by certain assets and the Liquidity Obligations may not be so secured or (y) the occurrence of an American Bankruptcy Event or any similar event or occurrence relating to any other Person (it being

expressly agreed that the payment priorities and subordination specified in Articles II and III shall apply whether or not a claim for post-petition or post-filing interest is allowed in the proceedings resulting from such American Bankruptcy Event or other event or occurrence). The Trustees expressly agree (on behalf of themselves and the holders of Certificates) not to assert priority over the holders of Liquidity Obligations (except as specifically set forth in Section 3.02) due to their status as secured creditors in any bankruptcy, insolvency or other legal proceeding.

(e) Each of the Trustees (on behalf of themselves and the holders of Certificates), the Liquidity Providers and the Subordination Agent may take any of the following actions without impairing its rights under this Agreement:

(i) obtain a Lien on any property to secure any amounts owing to it hereunder, including, in the case of the Liquidity Providers, the Liquidity Obligations;

(ii) obtain the primary or secondary obligation of any other obligor with respect to any amounts owing to it hereunder, including, in the case of the Liquidity Providers, any of the Liquidity Obligations;

(iii) renew, extend, increase, alter or exchange any amounts owing to it hereunder, including, in the case of the Liquidity Providers, any of the Liquidity Obligations, or release or compromise any obligation of any obligor with respect thereto;

(iv) refrain from exercising any right or remedy, or delay in exercising any right or remedy, which it may have; or

(v) take any other action which might discharge a subordinated party or a surety under applicable law;

provided, however, that the taking of any such actions by any of the Trustees, the Liquidity Providers or the Subordination Agent shall not prejudice the rights or adversely affect the obligations of any other party under this Agreement.

Section 9.10. Governing Law. THIS AGREEMENT HAS BEEN DELIVERED IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK AND SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAW OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, INCLUDING ALL MATTERS OF CONSTRUCTION, VALIDITY AND PERFORMANCE.

Section 9.11. Submission to Jurisdiction; Waiver of Jury Trial; Waiver of Immunity. (a) Each of the parties hereto, to the extent it may do so under applicable law, for purposes hereof and of all other Operative Agreements hereby (i) irrevocably submits itself to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the State of New York sitting in the City of New York and to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, for the purposes of any suit, action or other proceeding arising out of this Agreement, the subject matter hereof or any of the transactions contemplated hereby brought by any party or parties hereto or thereto, or their successors or permitted assigns and (ii) waives, and agrees not to assert, by way of motion, as a defense, or otherwise, in any such suit, action or proceeding, that the suit, action or proceeding is brought in an inconvenient forum, that the

venue of the suit, action or proceeding is improper or that this Agreement or the subject matter hereof or any of the transactions contemplated hereby may not be enforced in or by such courts.

(b) EACH OF THE PARTIES HERETO HEREBY AGREES TO WAIVE ITS RESPECTIVE RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL OF ANY CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION BASED UPON OR ARISING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY DEALINGS BETWEEN THEM RELATING TO THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THIS AGREEMENT AND THE RELATIONSHIP THAT IS BEING ESTABLISHED, including, without limitation, contract claims, tort claims, breach of duty claims and all other common law and statutory claims. Each of the parties warrants and represents that it has reviewed this waiver with its legal counsel, and that it knowingly and voluntarily waives its jury trial rights following consultation with such legal counsel. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THIS WAIVER IS IRREVOCABLE AND CANNOT BE MODIFIED EITHER ORALLY OR IN WRITING, AND THIS WAIVER SHALL APPLY TO ANY SUBSEQUENT AMENDMENTS, RENEWALS, SUPPLEMENTS OR MODIFICATIONS TO THIS AGREEMENT.

(c) To the extent that any Liquidity Provider or any of its properties has or may hereafter acquire any right of immunity, whether characterized as sovereign immunity or otherwise, and whether under the United States Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act of 1976 (or any successor legislation) or otherwise, from any legal proceedings, whether in the United States or elsewhere, to enforce or collect upon this Agreement, including, without limitation, immunity from suit or service of process, immunity from jurisdiction or judgment of any court or tribunal or execution of a judgment, or immunity of any of its property from attachment prior to any entry of judgment, or from attachment in aid of execution upon a judgment, each of the Class A Liquidity Provider and, upon accession hereto, the Class B Liquidity Provider, hereby irrevocably and expressly waives any such immunity, and agrees not to assert any such right or claim in any such proceeding, whether in the United States or elsewhere.

Section 9.12. Non-Petition. Each Liquidity Provider covenants that until one year and one day after the Equipment Notes have been paid in full, it shall not acquiesce, petition or otherwise invoke or cause or join in invoking or causing any Trust or any other Person to invoke the process of any governmental authority for the purpose of commencing or sustaining a case (whether voluntary or not) against such Trust under any bankruptcy, insolvency or similar law or appointing a receiver, liquidator, assignee, trustee, custodian, sequestrator or other similar official of such Trust or any substantial part of its property or ordering the winding up or liquidation of the affairs of such Trust.
