    Fortunately no one was hurt or killed. It will be listed as another incident and forgotten. Had a passenger been killed then it would make headline news. I wonder what ever happened to the last fatal accident just a few weeks ago? Just one death......no big deal.

    ...with aging aircraft, it's just a matter of time before the electrons get together for an aluminum weenie roast. I'm surprised the injuries were only minor while evacuating the aircraft.

    Fortunately, yes it happened on the ground and the emergency evacuation was in line with procedure. Question is what caused it. It will be forgotten about, just like the Southwest Incident. After all the plane landed safely. Too bad about the broken window an the woman who dies going out of it. But that will fade away also. The public has a short memory for things like this. So it seems does the "regulators" that should be monitoring them.

    Inspection of fan blades are under way. I wonder if they found any bad ones? There is problems with bogus parts with fake paper work. I suppose there could be more problems ahead......I think we will never know what failed......

    .... it's a good thing that it wasn't Allegiant. The crew would have been fired for popping the slides.

    Your right. You know how much those things cost to replace? Just push granny out the door.
