Southwest Planes Back In Service

Four Southwest planes repaired for what the airline calls “minor subsurface cracking” should be back in service tomorrow.  The company says it has completed all inspections of its Boeing 737 fleet as required by federal authorities. A fifth plane will be held back for scheduled maintenance. 

The repairs came after a five-inch hole opened in the roof of a Southwest jet last Friday in Arizona.  It forced the airline to cancel flights while it checked its fleet for cracking problems. 

Southwest is the largest carrier serving Las Vegas’ McCarran Airport.
