WASHINGTON - The Federal Aviation Administration is proposing another $2 million-plus fine for safety violations at a sister carrier of American Airlines.
The FAA says that AMR Corp.’s American Eagle operated at least 1,178 passenger-carrying flights with four Bombardier jets that had main landing gear doors that were not repaired the way a safety directive had ordered. The flights took place between February and May of 2008.
On Feb. 1, the FAA proposed a fine of nearly $2.5 million against American Eagle for not making sure crews had accurate information about the weight of baggage on dozens of flights.
AMR has 30 days to appeal the fines.
