Alaska Airlines completes fleet-wide inspection of pressurization problems
22 March 2006

A fleet-wide inspection of aircraft pressurization systems aboard Alaska Airlines jets has uncovered a few minor problems, but no systemic issues. The airline began inspecting all of its 112 jetliners Feb. 22 after a series of cabin pressurization failures caused several flights to make unscheduled returns to the airports where the flights began. The airline found an air leak around one plane`s entry door and a pressurization valve on another aircraft that was malfunctioning. (The News Tribune)
