Southwest Reaches Contract with Pilots Pending Ratification

Southwest Airlines reached an agreement with union negotiators on terms for a new contract with pilots, whose approval would be needed before it takes effect. Terms weren't disclosed. Leaders of the Southwest Airlines Pilots' Association are expected to meet later this month to decide whether to hold a ratification vote. Southwest Vice President Craig Drew says the process is far from complete but the company is pleased to have this agreement.

Federal Aviation Administration Proposes $325,000 Civil Penalty Against Southwest Airlines

The U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes a $325,000 civil penalty against Southwest Airlines of Dallas, Texas, for allegedly operating a Boeing 737 that was not in compliance with Federal Aviation Regulations. On July 9, 2014, an FAA inspector performed an aging aircraft inspection on the Boeing 737 while it was at a maintenance facility in San Salvador, El Salvador. The inspector discovered that Southwest improperly recorded a temporary repair to an approximately nine-inch crease in the aluminum skin of the jetliner's rear cargo door as a permanent repair. The inspector discovered that this fuselage damage had first been reported in Southwest Airlines' maintenance records on May 2, 2002, which is when the airline made the temporary repair. The airline was required to inspect the temporary repair every 4,000 flights and complete a permanent repair within 24,000 flights. However, the FAA alleges the airline operated the aircraft on 24,831 flights without performing the periodic inspections required for the temporary repair. The agency further alleges the airline operated the plane on 4,831 flights beyond the flight threshold by which it was required to have performed the permanent repair. The final repair was completed on July 24, 2014. Southwest has asked to meet with the FAA to discuss the case.
