Breaking News: Boeing warns of 737 engine problems on West Coast
Man - one would think BA stock tanks on this news tomorrow. And we all know when Cramer recommends a stock, behind close doors this bald headed loud mouth is is actually shorting the stock.\
Boeing alerted airlines Tuesday that 737 Next Generation aircraft flying on the West Coast have experienced intermittent and relatively rare instances of engine instability while climbing after takeoff.
Look Out - FAA about to ground 737 (talk about a major one - two punch to the gut)
In one case, both engines on a jet were affected simultaneously. One engine recovered; the other had to be shut down. The plane turned back and landed safely. Boeing's message said 32 such engine-instability events have happened in the past five years on the widely used single-aisle jets. In addition to Alaska Airlines, another airline had 14 incidents and a third airline had one. Boeing said Alaska did not experience any engine shutdowns. According to a source with knowledge of the problem, fuel dispensed at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport has been one focus of the investigation.
Looks like the FAA might have some major egg on their face if this was covered up. Media could have a field day with this news and 787 disaster.
Boeing's message said it is working closely on the problem with "the fuel supply chain" and has notified the Federal Aviation Administration. Question is what is the "FAA" doing? Sitting on their hands or looking for the energizer bunny to replace faulty BA batteries?
