American inspecting 757s after loose seats divert Miami-bound flight

02-10-2012

American Airlines is inspecting eight of its Boeing 757s after a row of seats on one of its planes came loose during flight from Boston to Miami on Saturday. That plane made an emergency landing in New York, and there were no injuries. The company said it believed there was an issue with the design of the new seats and how they fit into tracks in the floor of the aircraft. After the incident, American found another 757 with a loose row of seats; both planes had recently had their rows of seats adjusted to change the amount of legroom between rows. During the inspection, mechanics found additional rows of seats on both planes that weren’t properly secured to the floor.
