Southwest gives $5000 to passengers on fatal flight

US FAA to order inspections of jet engines after Southwest blast

Alethia can be seen in her video as she is instructed to put on an oxygen mask during the descent.

The incident remains under investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board.

"This was an internal metal fatigue area", Sumwalt continued.

The engine will be examined further to understand what caused the failure.

"It was just as if she and I were sitting here talking", Virginia Shults said.

Former flight attendants said that Flight 1380 underscored the importance of the safety instructions delivered to passengers as the planes taxi to the runway. The NTSB said a fan blade had broken off, apparently because of metal fatigue. "Every engine manufacturer and airline monitors them very, very closely".

A spokesman for CFM told Gizmodo that the engine involved in Tuesday's incident was not subject to the Service Bulletins issued following the 2016 incident, and that Southwest had implemented the recommended inspections. A jet engine cycle comprises an engine start, takeoff and landing, and full shut down.

In addition to the broken fan blade, the engine's cowling failed. Her impact on everything and everyone she touched can never be fully measured.

In the wake of Tuesday's tragedy, the FAA announced that it will require inspections of all CFM56-7B engines that have flown a certain number of miles. European regulators recently implemented the same directive. United Airlines executives said Wednesday that they had begun inspecting some of their planes. That covers more than 700 737s, including more than 500 737-700s.

As a precaution, Southwest said Tuesday night that it would inspect similar engines in its fleet over the next 30 days. He refused to provide details about his rescue efforts out of respect for Riordan's loved ones. Boeing, not CFM, is responsible for the cowling.

The airline apologized and gave each passenger $5,000 in compensation and a $1,000 travel voucher, NBC News' Tom Costello reported.

The Boeing 737 plane managed to make an emergency landing at Philadelphia International Airport at 11.30am local time (4.30pm Irish time).

One passenger was fatally injured after being sucked partway through a shattered window.

The flight was forced to make an emergency landing at Philadelphia International Airport. The fiery crash killed 111 people. Southwest flight from NYC to Dallas!' A piece of the covering was later found in Bernville, Pennsylvania, about 70 miles west of Philadelphia, Sumwalt said. "So, I wrapped my arm around the girl and I pulled her to me, and I just kept my hand on Jennifer, so at least I thought someone is with her".

We pay to your tales! "There have been occasions when the NTSB and the FAA have moved almost instantaneously, but that's pretty rare". And this particular photo shows an even more dangerous problem: Several passengers on the plane weren't using their oxygen masks properly.
