Random thoughts from Mauricio Teixeira…

American Airlines falling apart?

I always suspected that there was something wrong with American, and I avoid flying with them as much as possible. Now I am sure that I’m not paranoid.

American Feels Pinch of FAA-Ordered Groundings

“American has grounded the flights while it inspects its fleet of MD-80 airplanes to make sure the wiring in the wheel wells is properly protected from chafing. Unprotected wires potentially could result in a short or spark that might ignite, explains Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Laura J. Brown. “It’s a very low-probability risk, but it’s an extremely high-consequence issue,” she says.”

American grounds MD-80s a 2nd time

“Less than two weeks after grounding its MD-80 fleet for safety inspections, American Airlines said Tuesday that it again needed to take those aircraft out of service to address the same issue: how wires in the wheel wells are secured.”
