Southwest Airlines giving $5K to passengers of deadly flight


Allegedly the airline had failed a previous inspection!

He said he thought: "They're going to get this from their dad from the grave, something that they could always have to know that we loved them". The airline has provided a number for passengers who need to be reunited with their luggage. The airline declined further comment.

As Southwest Airlines Flight 1380 plunged, passenger Hollie Mackey was torn between trying to save a woman whose upper body was being sucked out of a broken window and protecting the child beside her from a similar fate.

Southwest is sending a letter of apology, a $5,000 check and a $1,000 travel voucher to passengers who were on a flight that made an emergency landing in Philadelphia following an engine explosion. It was the first death in USA airline service since 2009.

In total, it means to the airline is giving less than US$1 million to the other passengers.

CFM is a joint venture of General Electric Co and France's Safran.

Mackey says the actions of the captain and crew getting the plane to the ground safely in Philadelphia, and the way they embraced the passengers upon landing, was extraordinary. "And that's what his calling is - to help", she said. He said the airline hires GE to do heavy overhaul or maintenance work on all of its engines. The company has not said whether the engine was subjected to the ultrasonic inspection or given details of its maintenance history. The Philadelphia Fire Department said firefighters found a fuel leak and a small fire in one of the plane's two engines. NTSB chairman Robert Sumwalt said the crack was not detectable from the outside. It will require inspections of some CFM56-7B engines. "And probably more toward the front of the plane, or the very back, where you're not as close to the wings or the engine".

The FAA, which has issued more than 100 airworthiness directives just since the beginning of this year, has said that the time it takes to finalize directives depends on the complexity of the issue and the agency's risk assessment based on the likelihood of occurrence and the severity of the outcome.

America's National Transportation Safety Board will look into how an interior crack on the blade led to the incident.

Investigators said the blade that broke off mid-flight and triggered the fatal accident was showing signs of metal fatigue - microscopic cracks from repeated use.

United CEO Oscar Munoz said inspections had begun recently and would occur throughout the course of the year. He said he appreciated he would not have to file claim forms.
