FAA says future United projects ‘may be delayed' due to increased oversight

·1 min

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced increased oversight of United Airlines following a series of incidents on their flights. The FAA stated that this could result in delays to the airline’s future plans. The agency will evaluate United’s safety management and compliance. The incidents include a Boeing 737-800 landing in Medford, Oregon, with a missing panel, as well as other mishaps involving Boeing jets. The FAA may potentially prevent United from adding new routes as part of their evaluation. United informed employees of the FAA’s increased presence to review work processes and facilities. These challenges come amidst broader safety concerns surrounding Boeing aircraft.
