Southwest Airlines: No Other Engine Fan Blade Issues

Southwest Airlines

Southwest Airlines is pretty confident there are no other engine fan blade issues similar to the one that killed a passenger on a flight last month.  CEO  Gary Kelly told shareholders in Maryland today inspectors found no  other problems while looking at Southwest's  more than 700 other planes.  The Dallas-based low-cost air carrier is  promising the inspections go beyond what regulators require.  Last  month's accident on Flight 1380 from New York to Dallas killed Jennifer Riordan after the blade shattered and punctured the fuselage.
