American Airlines raised its adjusted earnings outlook for the second quarter thanks to strong travel demand and lower fuel prices.

Adjusted earnings per share will be between $1.45 and $1.65, US estimates Wednesday, up from a previous forecast of $1.20 to $1.40 per share. The Fort Worth, Texas-based airline said it now expects unit revenue in the three months ending June 30 to come in 1% to 3% lower than the same period last year, an improvement from an earlier forecast for a decline of as much like 4%.

American’s shares rose more than 2% in premarket trading.

American Airlines CEO Robert Isom is scheduled to speak at the Bernstein Strategic Decision Conference at 4:30 PM ET on Wednesday.

He is likely to face questions about a new preliminary labor agreement with pilots and whether the airline will appeal a federal judge’s ruling this month that struck down America’s Northeast partnership with JetBlue Airways.

The airline is scheduled to report results for the second quarter at the end of July.
