Southwest is full of crap! They were warned by the engine makers to examine fanblades for metal fatigue. THEY REFUSED! That could have prevented this accident!

Despite the tragic death on board the aircraft I still implicitly respect and will continue to fly Southwest, the best airline in this country and the best at what they do, started flying them in 2001 and now 17 yrs later I've never looked back. In fact after this tragedy I took to Facebook and messaged them to reaffirm my loyalty and commitment to them! Now I'm looking to turn my passion and love for this outstanding airline into a career with them, yes Southwest has had a few accidents over the years but despite this they are still the best at what they do!
MizzVivi84 (1 day ago)
I don't see any reason why not. I mean accidents happen. It could have been any airline. Things could've been checked 100% and it still could've happened. So basically, i agree with you. I've never flown SW, but wouldn't steer clear bc of this
howard baxter (1 month ago)
Few accidents out of the hundreds of thousands of annual flights. I like my odds. *over sensationalization by the media is why I despise all media sources (Fox, CNN, NBC, etc.). These talking heads do nothing but oversimplify issues, and acting like there are simply solutions to everything (which there aren’t).

I live in providence, RI.. thankgod my 20 year old sister and nephew was safe.. they took a flight around 4pm that day.. I was scared and hope nothing ever happens while their on the plane, thank you god♥️😓this is why they should ALWAYS CHECK everything before flying off for the SAKE OF KIDS, ADULTS & ELDERLY!!

So did the engine explosion cause the widow to break, and why that specific window ? Is that just by chance, or that window is more likely to be hit by the engine debris/ shock wave ?

So are you going to blame terrorism then?. BBC website said there was an explosion before this happened, so I am waiting for the USA to blame terrorism, not the engine at all.
Sando L (1 month ago)
hahaha, very smart. You knew what I meant, we all know the Americans in specific are overrating themselves in everything and hate all outsiders, because everything is blamed on terrorism or terrorist attacks in America, which I question actually exist at all and is all in the minds of the American as a fantastic control mechanism.
Chuck La Mont (1 month ago)
Sando L yes it was terrorism because everyone on board was simply terrified so, since more then one was on board it could be considered terrorism for all of the passengers who lived thru this terrible terror..

Ok, for sake of saying the engine exploded, their was a separation of engine parts which in turn, because of forward movement and failure of the containment rings obligation to protect the engines housing would have appeared to sound to the untrained, as that of an explosion. The female captain, her first officer and attendant crew did an exemplary text book job in handling this emergency. The cabin crew did not panic as it has been suggested. Condolences to the family of their lost loved one as unfortunate as this tragedy is and kudos to all of the aircraft crew for being able to avert additional casualties, Southwest Airlines should be proud of the professionalism this aircrew exhibited during this emergency.....

CL (1 month ago)
Mark, think about what you're saying...having a tech check "every part of an aircraft before flight" would be a physical impossibility; that's something that takes place by a team of technicians during the aircraft's 100-hour and annual inspections. Engines and other components have scheduled maintenance after a certain number of operating hours, at which time items such as turbine blades ARE checked.
Greyson Mitchell (1 month ago)
CL they don't... they say they do, but they don't... ask me how I know....
Mark Angel (1 month ago)
CL a technician should check every part of a aircraft before flight including turbines
CL (1 month ago)
OK, explain to us how a preflight check would have been able to detect metal fatigue deep inside one of the front turbine fan blades, which is precisely what caused the uncontained failure. We'll wait.

Also, The Boeing 737-700 aircraft is designed to have total redundancy. What that means is, in the case of catastrophic engine failure (the 100% loss of engine performance), the aircraft can operate on the other engine at normal conditions for a limited amount of time. The reason for the feeling of "free-fall", as he described it, is due to the pilot controlling the aircraft to achieve an altitude (lower than 12000 ft.) that is conducive to passenger safety in an uncontrolled pressure situation of the aircraft's interior environment to avoid injury. The depressurization of the interior of the cabin is what causes the deployment of the oxygen masks. I think that it is a testament of this pilot's incredible ability remain focused, and to follow protocol in place in order to safely land this aircraft and avoid any other injury to passengers. Knowing that the interior of the aircraft wasn't totally breached, IMO, the woman's injuries may have been due to the thick Plexiglas interior window being shattered when impacted by pieces of the engine hitting the plane's exterior. Our prayers for the woman injured and for the passengers involved.

JohnnyBoythePilot let’s be real here, the media is full of morons that love to make experts (particularly engineers and scientists) look stupid just to fit an agenda. They criticize the experts, saying something needs to be done, when people are either already working on solutions or pointing out the rarity of certain instances (there is ALWAYS a chance for error). Absolutely pisses me off.
Shail Leszkowicz (1 month ago)
Tarmac is the material used to make the runway, apron taxiway or ramp, this is true, but it is not a classification of anything regarding aviation or airports. Using the word tarmac as in stating a part of an airport is incorrect. You could say, the runway is made of the tarmac or the taxiway is made out of the tarmac, but you can't say the jet is out on the tarmac because that is not a place in the airport. You should refer to these places as the apron or ramp, the taxiway or the runway. You could even say, you can see the jet being transported across the airfield. Not Tarmac. Also, not everything on an airfield is made out of tarmac, so using the word tarmac is also incorrect terminology.
