San Diego Airport cancels flights due to Alaska Airlines Flight 1282 incident

Flights in San Diego were cancelled and delayed due to this Alaska Airlines incident

San Diego airlines have had to cancel flights after the Alaska Airlines Flight 1282 incident in which a gaping hole opened in the cabin during the flight that ripped headrests off seats and a shirt off a passenger. That's why, all Boeing 737 Max 9 airplanes are currently suspended from flying.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) suspended around 171 Max 9 airplanes in order to inspect them. This action also affected foreign airlines that operate with Max 9 jetliners.

On Sunday, more than a dozen flights going to or from San Diego had been delayed or cancelled. More than 21 delays and 36 cancellations had occurred by Monday morning.

Aviation analyst, Jeff Guzzetti, said that this type of airplane is new which means that this is more likely a manufacturing issue. As such, strict examinations will be carried out to test these 737 Max 9 airplanes.

The FAA claimed that they will begin the inspections of these Boeing 737 Max 9 airplanes before they take flight again. Lastly, Guzzetti said that this type of investigations can take up to 1 year to be concluded, but preliminary results could be ready before that.
