Southwest Airlines giving $5K to passengers of deadly flight

Southwest offers apology, $5000 to passengers on damaged flight

The move came days after one of those engines on a Southwest Airlines jet exploded in midair, leading to the death of a female passenger and injuries of seven others.

United States airspace regulatory agency, has directed airlines with the same engines as the Southwest Airlines Boeing 737 to carry out a thorough inspection of the engines' fan blades.

The EAD comes after the CFM56-7B engine manufacturer, CFM International, released a service bulletin calling for more rigid testing of this type of engine, the FAA explained.

CFM International, the maker of the engines subject to the order, estimated 352 engines in the US are affected and 681 worldwide. The directive is based on a CFM International Service Bulletin issued Friday and on information gathered from the investigation of Tuesday's Southwest Airlines engine failure.

Jennifer Riordan, 43, and also a mother of 2, was nearly sucked out of their broken window and pulled back by fellow guests. Each aircraft has two engines.

An engine on a Southwest jet exploded Tuesday while the plane was flying from NY to Dallas, and debris hit it, causing extensive damage.

The incident raised a number of questions because jet engines are certified to be able to withstand a broken fan blade without causing major damage.

The inspections ordered are a sharp step-up from actions by both the European and USA regulators after a Southwest flight in August 2016 made a safe emergency landing in Pensacola, Florida, after a fan blade separated from the same type of engine and debris ripped a hole above the left wing. A preliminary examination of the blown jet engine of the Southwest Airlines plane that set off a terrifying chain of events and left a businesswoman hanging half outside a shattered window showed evidence of "metal fatigue", according to the National Transportation Safety Board.

It is unknown whether the FAA's original directive would have forced Southwest to quickly inspect the engine that blew up. "Since the AD was issued, a further failure of a fan blade of a CFM56-7B engine has been reported", EASA said. The existing Southwest Airlines maintenance program meets or exceeds all the requirements specified in the Airworthiness Directive. In total, the flight had 144 customers and five crewmembers onboard.

On Wednesday, National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) Chairman Robert Sumwalt, the chief investigator of U.S. aviation accidents, said he could not yet say if the incident pointed to a fleet-wide issue.

The transport ministry on Saturday ordered Japanese airlines to make the emergency inspections.
