Cranky on the Web: United Fined for Failing to Inspect 787 Even After FAA Told the Airline

United slapped with fine for taking plane ‘not in airworthy condition’ on 23 flightsMarketWatch You may have missed it, but the FAA proposed a hefty fine against United for flying an airplane that hadn’t been properly inspected after a repair was completed. I was asked about this and I pointed out that just because something isn’t airworthy doesn’t mean it’s unsafe. But I had more to say that wasn’t included in the article. “While it’s always a concern that United failed to follow the proper steps to put this aircraft back into service, the bigger concern to me is that even after the FAA alerted United to the issue, there were still 2 more flights conducted before the inspection was completed.”
