Southwest Air 737 Fuselage Crack, Pressure Loss - Forced To Fly Low Altitude

Post by planeanxiety » Mon Mar 16, 2020 12:38 pm

Pilots on Southwest Flight 1685 from Las Vegas to Boise, Idaho, descended to 22,000 feet Monday after receiving a pressure-drop alert for the cabin, the Dallas-based carrier said Friday. The action allowed the plane to maintain a safe pressure, the Federal Aviation Administration and Southwest said. Oxygen masks, which automatically pop out of ceiling panels if needed, didn’t deploy.
