If I were WN and their pilots, I'd be mad as hell. It would make me wonder what else Boeing is hiding. Now, I'm sure WN doesn't want to ground their MAX fleet but if I'm the FAA knowing that Boeing...

These turbo-fan engines are made by CFM. In both incidents it appears a fan blade separated (not the internal compressor or turbine blades). There a number of things that should be looked at. Is...

Past San Antonio the flight would have been almost the same distance between KHOU and KCRP. Distance from KSAT to KHOU is 192 NM and to KCRP it's 135. Doesn't make much sense at all to divert to...

Haven't posted in a long time. WOW. What a ***tty thing for WN to do. Blaming it on the reservation system is lame: that can be changed - they just don't want to.

Original poster, can you report back on how things went with Customer Relations?

It's a good data point for future situations.

Agreed on the first paragraph. Also agreed on the rest. Buying an expensive, refundable fare for leisure travel isn't insurance and it's surely not going to result cost-savings. The prudent thing...

I don't know of any restrictions that would expressly prohibit that (unless there is a minimum age for CP holders). But minors can certainly earn points per flight.

Jamrock, I understand what you're getting at at what happened: your friend had to pay a pretty steep fare difference to come home early. This happens all the time for any type of unplanned event or...

Ah, yes. I've never done it and was relying on Apple to state which apps it worked with. The app store doesn't include the Southwest app as being compatible with Apple Wallet. But it is. Just...

I think the FA isn't used to looking at Apple Wallet versions of a boarding pass. I didn't even know you could do that.

Southwest's app certainly is not compatible with Apple Wallet, so it looks...

If you've already checked two bags and your carry-on won't fit because it's too big (too big period or because it's overstuffed), you should be charged. The only way you shouldn't be charged is in...

True, but the question of CFM is should the engine inlet and nacelle contained the broken off fan blade? It obviously didn't.

Perhaps. But that blade is spinning at cruise at around 3,000 RPM and the tip is somewhere at mach .8 - .9, or say about 450 knots. A blade that breaks loose is going to have a ton of energy and...

Keep in mind that the fan blades are inspected according to vendor (CFM, in this case) and FAA maintenance schedules. At this point, we don't know if the maintenance wasn't done or simply that it...
