American Airlines to Fix More Seats

Monday, October 15th, 2012

American Airlines has said that they will modify the seats on 49 more aircraft in order to ensure that they don’t come lose during flight.  This issue caused the airline to ground 48 aircraft last week after after seats on three Boeing 757s came loose during flight.  They found that the seat rows weren’t locking into the tracks on the floor.  The repair crews are adding a secondary locking device to the seats in most of the airline’s Boeing 767 aircraft as well as an extra precaution, even though there have been no issues with the seats in these planes.

 

Work on the 67s began last Thursday and will be completed by October 21.  All work will be done in the overnight hours, so no flights will have to be cancelled.  The airline did have to cancel 94 flights on their 757s to repair the problem on those planes.  There are no other planes in American’s fleet with the same seat locking device and the FAA is allowing the airline to keep operating flights while it makes the modifications.

Flights Diverted from Manila Airport

Wednesday, October 10th, 2012

Officials report that 17 flights were diverted from Manila Airport in the Philippines due to a glitch in the equipment of the air traffic control tower.  The diverted flights included five international flights: Asiana Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Thai Airways, Zest Airway, and Philippine Airlines.  The flights were diverted to cities in central Cebu and Iloilo as well as the formerly U.S.-run Clark Air Base, which lies north of Manila.

 

An advisory from the Manila International Airport Authority said that flights were diverted “due to air traffic facility problem,” but did not expand or elaborate on the problem.  Those officials who had the authorization to discuss the matter could not be reached.  Jen Franco, from the airport’s public affairs office, said the glitch was repaired just before noon and all of the diverted flights later made their way to Manila Airport.
