American Airlines to Fix More Seats

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.
