Class Claims Southwest Broke Safety Rules

     CHICAGO (CN) – Southwest Airlines flew 46 Boeing 737s on more than 60,000 flights though they were long overdue for fuselage-crack inspections, and six of them did have cracks, a class action claims in Cook County Court. Plaintiffs claim the defects caused several fatal crashes in the 1980s and 1990s.

     The class claims Southwest repeatedly violated FAA safety rules but got away with it due to its cozy relationship with FAA inspectors.
     Plaintiffs’ lead counsel is Aaron Radbil with Krohn & Moss.
