    Although I hate to hear of this happening with any airline, it is good to hear the Seattle problems aren't limited to Alaska Airlines. Maybe this will get the Seattle press diverted from Alaska Airlines mishaps for a while.

    Must be thinking of the NTSB on accident at the time, because they investigate all matters, in air or on the ground.
    could be possible with 121 ops, not the case with 91

    7-6-2 in the AIM

    are you just saying that or do you actually know the regulations which require the FAA to be notified.

    Odd, but the FAA still should have been notified

    2 Injured as UA plane hits jetway in SEA

    SEATAC, Wash. -- United Airlines is investigating an accident at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport that injured a passenger and a flight attendant Sunday night, KIRO 7 Eyewitness News reported.

    A passenger said the plane hit some part of the jetway as it taxied, just moments before passengers expected to walk off the plane.

    "It was United Flight 949 from Chicago. Everything was fine until they lurched into the jetway,'' said a passenger who identified himself only as "Mike."

    The passenger called us at 8 p.m. to report the incident. He said the Boeing 757-200 he was aboard was loaded with passengers.

    The accident was severe enough that airport firefighters were called to help the injured, KIRO 7 Eyewitness News reported.

    United Airlines is investigating the incident, but the airline would not provide any details about what part of the plane hit the jetway or why. The passenger on board said he was told the plane was damaged.

    "They did share the information that the engine was lodged in the jetway, but they ended up de-boarding the plane," Mike said.

    The FAA was not notified of this incident, KIRO-TV reported. Because it happened on the ground, technically the agency may not have to investigate.
