Southwest sends letter, $5K check, $1K voucher to Flight 1380 passengers

Southwest sends letter, $5K check, $1K voucher to Flight 1380 passengers

When the engine exploded just after 11 a.m., about 20 minutes into the four-hour flight to Dallas from NY, the plane had reached an altitude of about 9,906 meters, short of its planned 11,582 meters, according to the flight data website FlightAware.

An individual familiar with the investigation said it is likely Ms Riordan's neck broke from the force of the airplane's speed when her head was pulled outside.

Other airlines also said in written comments in October that their costs in time and money would be higher than regulators initially expected, in part because the airlines did not closely track the fan blades used in their engines.

"That sound, some people have said it was a pop". "I retired in 2013, but I saw this and immediately it brought me back".

Jennifer Riordan, 43, was sitting in the window seat next to the wing.

"We were feeling that we were being pulled and the wind was very cold", said Mackey.

"And I looked at her eyes and she basically gave me the approval to go back there", Mr Needum told reporters at a news conference on Thursday.

"All we knew we could do was stay with her and get her home", she said.

Despite other national media reports, Mackey says it was not a horrifically, bloody chaotic scene in the cabin. We extend our heartfelt appreciation to the Southwest Pilots and Flight Attendants who acted professionally and swiftly to take care of our Customers during the emergency diversion and landing. "We've got injured passengers". It wasn't until people were safely on the ground that people started to cry.

"I just wanted to make sure I didn't preclude anything by taking the voucher or the cheque", he said. She eventually died from blunt impact trauma at a Philadelphia hospital, after the plane made an emergency landing. She died later from her injuries.

Ryan Valdez, a 33-year-old resident of Austin, Texas, said that even though he knows there's a low probability that what happened on the Southwest plane will happen while he's flying, it will be hard to get the prospect out of his head. "There was a woman that I was with who was very, very scared, and started crying and nearly couldn't step over the threshold, so there was never a time for me to be scared", Mackey told News 4. And it would need more time to implement the stricter inspections sought.

"I tried and tried and tried and I couldn't I just couldn't".

Mackey is originally from Montana, but has been a professor of Women's Studies at OU the last 8 years.
