Southwest offers apology, compensation to passengers

Southwest offers apology, compensation to passengers

At issue are the engine fan blades on Boeing 737-600, 700, 800 and 900 jets.

"I feel for her family". "It's a reliable, powerful workhorse".

Officials inspecting the engine failure further will look for one of three factors to explain why metal fatigue led to the splintering of the fan blade, according to Anderson.

Investigators retrieved parts of the cowling on the ground 65nm (120km) from Philadelphia, the NTSB said.

While some flight attendants may have a bit of fun by customizing their announcements, that can distract passengers from the message, Cochran said. At sea level, atmospheric pressure is about 14.7 psi (pounds per square inch), Thomas Anthony, director of the University of Southern California's aviation security program, told the Verge.

Southwest Flight 1380, a 737 with 144 passengers and five crew aboard, made an emergency landing at Philadelphia International Airport on April 17 after experiencing an apparent left-engine explosion.

According to reports, in 2016, an eerily similar incident occurred involving a Southwest flight and the same type of engine. He said the scope of FAA action will depend on whether investigators find fatigue in other fan blades on the broken engine.

The GE-Safran partnership that built the engine said it was sending about 40 technicians to help with Southwest's inspections.

A spokeswoman for CFM International says the company plans to issue a service bulletin on Friday that would expand the number of engines to be checked beyond those in previous notifications.

Jennifer Riordan, the female passenger, whom witnesses said was pulled back in from the broken plane window, died at a Philadelphia hospital, authorities said.

That showed on Tuesday, as a picture of passengers in the plane following its engine failure show nearly everybody wearing their oxygen masks improperly.

It proposed requiring airlines, within six months, to ultrasonically inspect fan blades on CFM56-7Bs that had accumulated more than 15,000 cycles since a last shop visit.

The pilots said they had been interviewed by investigators Wednesday and would not be doing any media interviews.

In the two minutes after the explosion, Southwest 1380 plunged about 8,000 feet, to about 7,924 meters.

The airline expects to wrap up its inspection of the engines it is targeting in about 30 days.

The terrifying chain of events on the flight brought out acts of bravery among the passengers and crew members. After aviation officer candidate school in Pensacola, Florida, she was assigned to a training squadron at Naval Air Station Chase Field in Beeville, Texas, as an instructor pilot teaching student aviators how to fly the Navy T-2 trainer. Engine failures like this should not occur, obviously. He did say that there were no other holes in the cabin. Not a single one.

Robert Sumwalt is chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board.
