Atlantic Southeast grounds 60 CRJs for maintenance checks
1 April 2009

Atlantic Southeast Airlines voluntarily grounded 60 of its Bombardier CRJ200 jetliners after an internal audit showed that maintenance crews might not have inspected their GE CF34 turbofans according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.
The company self-reported the problem to the FAA and voluntarily grounded the planes “as a precautionary measure”, a spokeswoman told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution newspaper.
ASA operates 110 CRJ200 planes.
