Southwest cancels flights for engine inspections

This service bulletin for inspections within the next 20 days would impact about 680 engines, with about 150 already inspected by operators, CFM International said.

Virgin Australia told Australian Aviation on Monday it had no engines in its Boeing 737 fleet which had accumulated more than 30,000 cycles.

CFM also urged the Federal Aviation Administration to issue an Airworthiness Directive to ensure prompt compliance with the recommended inspections. That directive is to require ultrasonic inspections of all CFM56 fan blades when they reach a designated number of takeoffs and landings. The FAA defines a cycle as one take off and one landing.

On her way to Orlando, Florida, Flynn said she loves to travel but hates to fly - so she likes to be aware of her surroundings. He and other passengers are shown terrified as they hold their oxygen masks to their faces.

"Today, we have only canceled about 40 flights due to fan blade inspections out of a planned schedule of almost 4,000 flights".

Shults and the first officer in a joint statement declined media interviews.


The engine's manufacturer had recommended such inspections be conducted within a year.

The shrapnel shattered a window and depressurized the cabin, partially sucking a woman out of the plane. Southwest pushed back against CFM's request for a 12-month deadline, and American Airlines asked for even more time - 20 months.

The agency never issued a final decision, however.

"On behalf of the entire Southwest Airlines Family, please accept our sincere apologies for the circumstances surrounding Flight 1380 on Tuesday morning April 17th", the statement read in part. The airlines have 20 days to comply.

"Injured passengers, okay, and is your airplane physically on fire?" asks a male voice in the tower, according to a recording released by officials. CFM56-7B engines are the most common engines on Boeing 737s, which are the most common commercial aircraft in the world.

Sumwalt said the fan blade, after suffering metal fatigue where it attached to the engine hub, has a second fracture about halfway along its length.


"It's imperative that people put on the mask immediately - over their nose and mouth", she said. There are currently about 14,000 CFM56-7B engines in operation.

Tuesday's emergency broke a string of eight straight years without a fatal accident involving a U.S. airliner.

Southwest announced just hours after the incident that it would conduct additional inspections of its CFM56-7B engines.

Jim Hall, NTSB chairman during the Clinton administration, said all CFM engines on 737s should be inspected.

AP Airlines Writer David Koenig reported from Dallas.
