Trump to meet with Southwest crew after fatal engine failure

Oscar PerryMay 02, 2018

"The flight crew, following procedures, idled the engine and continued for Honolulu", the airlines stated in a release. She died later from her injuries.

Southwest Airlines has previously disclosed it is providing USD5,000 checks and USD1,000 vouchers to all passengers who were onboard the affected flight.

Passengers Andrew Needum, a firefighter, and Tim McGinty, who works in farm and ranch real estate, rushed toward row 14, working together to pull the passenger, Jennifer Riordan, back in from the broken window as the plane began to make an emergency landing in Philadelphia, witnesses said.

About 45 minutes from arrival, the airline said the pilots throttled down one engine of the plane and declared an emergency as they approached the islands.

Three passengers who tried in vain to save Riordan's life also attended the brief meeting.

Britain's Sainsbury's to buy supermarket chain Asda from Walmart for $10.1 billion
The Labour Party's business spokeswoman, Rebecca Long-Bailey, has already called for an investigation of the proposed deal. Asda has a strong presence in the north of England and Sainsbury's in the south. "We think it is a great deal all around".

National Transportation Safety Board Chairman Robert Sumwalt has cited "metal fatigue" for causing the engine failure. The Dallas-bound flight had departed from LaGuardia Airport when Shults and first officer Darren Ellisor were forced to make an emergency landing in Philadelphia following the explosion.

Her lawsuit alleges that the air carrier was negligent and breached its obligations - failing to warn passengers that the aircraft and engine had defects.

After that incident, Southwest disagreed with a Federal Aviation Authority proposal about engine inspections, reported Reuters. We can't comment on any pending litigation. "The safety and security of our employees and customers is our highest priority at all times", the airline said in a statement.

The engine manufacturer CFM International, a joint-venture between General Electric and Safran has been named as a co-defendant.
