You know it's one thing to have control over your car if a situation did occur ,but when you are 30,000 feet above the ground and allow someone else to fly you from one state to another , you have to just pray he 1) knows what he is doing 2) there is nothing wrong mechanically with the plane 3) and if there is an incident, they know how to handle it.

This past Tuesday April 17th south west flight carrying passengers from NY to Dallas had an engine fail causing it to blow up and the pilot having to immediately land the flight.Pretty scary right?

South west counts for nearly half the flights out of Albany NY. Since this incident south west will conduct inspections on every single southwest airline. People traveling within the next couple weeks should check periodically to see if there are changes to there flights.
