Southwest Flight To Dallas Make Emergency Landing After Losing Cabin Pressure
Southwest Airlines is making headlines again, but for all the wrong reasons.
From CBS DFW, Southwest Airline flight 861 was traveling from Denver to Dallas on Saturday night with over 100 passengers when oxygen masks fell and passengers were told to put them on because they were losing pressure in the cabin.
A spokesperson for Southwest released a statement:
The Crew of Flight 861 traveling from Denver to Dallas Saturday night radioed ahead for paramedics to meet the aircraft after a pressurization issue in flight. Following an uneventful landing, initial reports indicate four of the 120 Customers onboard requested a check from paramedics to assess ear pain. All of the Customers were ending their journey with us in Dallas, as was the aircraft, which will undergo a maintenance review.
Southwest Airlines already faced scrutiny last month when a flight from New York to Dallas made an emergency landing in Philadelphia when shrapnel hit on of the engines causing it to explode which killed 1 passenger.
Let’s hope Southwest will take passenger safety more serious and rectify those issues.
