Southwest Sends $5000 Cheques To Passengers On Accident Flight

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

"While the National Transportation Safety Board continues its investigation as to the circumstances surrounding the accident, our primary focus and commitment is to assist you in every way possible".

The incident comes a day after a Southwest Airlines plane engine exploded, killing a passenger.

"Please watch the safety demo and please know that our jobs are so much more than just pouring cokes at 30,000 ft".

"But at any time that could change - so just take a minute and open up safety cards, see where the exits are, review how to put on the oxygen mask - and then put on your headphones and take your selfies!"

Investigators say a fan blade in the engine separated, showering the plane with debris. The plane was carrying 149 people, including five crew members. It was a different story in the 60s and 70' when the technology was less advanced. It was on the ground about 10 minutes later.

Southwest Airlines has issued a written apology and a gesture of goodwill to the passengers of flight 1380.

Luckily, the plane landed safely and Martinez was able to post photos of a damaged window near the engine.

Without supplemental oxygen, the human body begins to decline quickly above 7,924m. A passenger from New Mexico, Jennifer Riordan, was killed. The Federal Aviation Administration has said it will order ultrasonic inspection of the parts.

"There did not seem to be an urgency" at the FAA to finalize the inspections, he said.

Federal investigators were still trying to determine how a window came out of the plane. She reached the rank of lieutenant commander, said Commander Ron Flanders, the spokesman for Naval Air Forces in San Diego.

Demetros said a firefighter from Texas who was on the flight helped pull Riordan inside the plane and passengers began helping to administer first aid and CPR.

"All of those insurance interests have already gotten together", Clifford said, "and somebody's on point for dealing with these cases".

Another passenger, Diana McBride Self, thanked Shults on Facebook for her "guidance and bravery in a traumatic situation". He said there was a fuel leak in one of the engines when firefighters arrived and a small fire was extinguished.

Passengers dragged her back into the cabin, but she died at a Philadelphia hospital after the plane made an emergency landing.

Riordan's death is being mourned in her hometown, according to CNN.

He told the BBC that when he saw the footage from the flight, the masks were the first thing he noticed. In recent years, the in-person instructions have been replaced with splashy, choreographed videos.

She heard a lot of commotion a few rows behind her, noise and a whoosh of air and calls for someone who knew CPR. She says she has never faced an emergency landing but she was always prepared.

They said the blade showed signs of metal fatigue - very small cracks that can break apart under stress.

"Engine failures like this should not occur", Robert Sumwalt, chairman of the NTSB, said Wednesday.
