Southwest Airlines has completed checks on the rest of its 35,500 engine fan blades and found no signs of the cracking that’s been blamed in the fatal engine failure onboard last month’s Flight 1380.
The company’s CEO Gary Kelly said there were “no findings” ahead the company’s annual shareholders meeting held Wednesday in Annapolis, Maryland, according to Bloomberg News.
“So it’s a very positive report,” Kelly said.
The company has sent several dozen blades to manufacturer General Electric for further inspection, although Kelly said he did not expect it would turn up any problems. Some of those blades had coating anomalies and were sent to GE "out of an abundance of caution," Chief Operating Officer Mike Van de Ven told Bloomberg.
