Southwest airlines takes another fall

Southwest airlines continues to strike out when it comes to having a reputation for safe flights. Between emergency landings, fights and passenger removals, Southwest airlines keeps making headlines.

On Apr. 17, a passenger died after a plane accident when Flight 1380 had an engine explode. The impact of the explosion and debris broke a passengers window and was constantly pulling her. The pressure was so strong that her torso was experiencing a continuous pull out of the window. Passengers rushed to help her, causing seven more injuries.

One day later, another Southwest plane’s engine exploded in Nashville, causing yet another emergency landing. Birds entered the engine, causing the explosion.

It was just two months ago that Southwest Airlines was making the headlines when a Muslim man was removed from his flight. He was talking in an Arabic language, which caused people to feel uncomfortable. There is a lawsuit undergo against the company.
