First Southwest, now American: U.S. airlines seeing massive SPIKE in safety problems as planes fall apart in the skies
04/18/2024 // Ethan Huff // Views

Safety issues are on the rise at airlines in the United States, which are increasingly seeing their airplanes fall apart in the skies without warning or apparent cause.

Many of the reported problems started with Southwest Airlines and United Airlines but have since expanded to include American Airlines, a pilot group from which says it is seeing a "significant spike" in both safety- and maintenance-related problems at the carrier.

The Allied Pilots Association (APA) reported "problematic trends" in an April 13 memo to the airline, including instances of hammers and other tools being left in airplane wheel wells, as well as an increasing number of collisions between aircraft while they are being towed across the runways.

Roughly 15,000 pilots are part of the APA, which continues to implore its members to take their time in doing their jobs and not rush due to pressure because doing so puts both crew and passengers at risk of injury or death.

(Related: Perhaps airlines in the U.S. should stop promoting anti-white "diversity" in their hiring and instead stick with hiring qualified people, whatever their skin color, to both build and fly its planes.)

Alaska, United both seeing problems as well

Another air carrier seeing problems is Alaska Airlines, which back in January had a large panel blow off the side of one of its aircraft mid-flight. United Airlines also found itself in headlines after a wheel fell off a plane after takeoff, as well as an incident in which an aircraft skidded off an airport runway.

"While United Airlines is currently under public and government scrutiny, it could just as easily be American Airlines," the APA wrote in its memo.

In a statement responding to the memo, American claimed that it maintains a "robust safety program" to prevent such incidents from occurring. That program includes "a multitude of collaborative programs – and regular touchpoints – with the FAA and all of our unions, including APA, to further bolster our strong safety record and enhance our ever-evolving safety culture."

Members of the APA recently spoke with senior management at American about how to improve early assessments of possible safety risks. The initial response to that conversation "was encouraging," according to union spokesman Dennis Tajer.

"We fully intend to do everything we can to assure that American maintains strong margins of safety," Tajer added.

The problems at American continue, though, with instances of equipment being left in sterile areas where planes pull into the gates, for instance, as well as faulty paperwork documenting when damaged aircraft have to be sent to another location for repair.

Another thing APA members want the airline to improve is the operating procedure for how planes are navigated across ramps and taxiways, particularly at congested airports staffed "with inexperienced controllers and ground personnel."

The Federal Aviation Administration is said to be increasing its oversight of United as part of a broad safety review, including by postponing approval for two new routes the airline had planned to start this upcoming summer.

Boeing, a major supplier of airplanes in the U.S., is also riddled with problems these days after transitioning its build operations from unionized Washington state to non-unionized South Carolina.

There have been a number of incidents with Boeing's infamous 737 Max 9, which has had many, many problems since its launch. There are also now problems with the 787 Dreamliner, which was determined to have been built from plans riddled with manufacturing shortcuts aimed at easing production bottleneck at production plants.

America's transition to anti-white, anti-male "diversity" is wrecking just about everything that the former land of the free once held near and dear. Find out more at
