American Airlines has grounded around 1000 planes today as inspections continue for some of America’s most popular airlines. The trend began several months ago as Southwest Airlines faced a fine of 10.2 million dollars due to the findings of defective equipment on their planes. After grounding all of their Boeing 737 aircrafts, Southwest claimed to have the situation under control.
American Airlines’ inspections circle around their fleet of MD-80 jets. Although it would appear that these airlines are working hard to ensure the safety of their airplanes, it causes the public to wonder about the true safety of air travel. Cracks found in Southwest airplanes and the danger of other defective plane equipment may be too much for many passengers to handle. While the inspections are done for our safety, it is undoubtedly concerning to think that these defective planes have been operating with serious flaws for months if not years.
