CHICAGO — American Airlines Inc. and the trustee on $237 million of revenue bonds issued for the carrier’s Tulsa maintenance base will ask the bankruptcy court to approve an agreement Wednesday paving the way for the bond trustee to resume debt service payments.

The agreement is significant on several fronts. First, American will assume its sublease tied to repayment of its Tulsa bonds, signaling its commitment to maintain the base. It also removes the threat of a potential battle over the legal status of the airline’s bond sublease.
