American Airlines: “We Know Why You Fly” But We Don’t Know Why Our Seats Don’t Stay Fastened to the Floor


American Airlines Flight 685 (Boeing 757 equipment) from Boston was diverted to JFK Saturday after a row of three seats became loose in the coach cabin. Three passengers were moved to other seats on the aircraft before the plane landed safely about 12:50 p.m.

Then on Monday, Flight 443 (Boeing 757 equipment) departed John F. Kennedy International Airport about 7:15 a.m. Monday en route to Miami. During the flight a row of three seats came loose, and the flight returned to JFK and made an emergency landing.

Maybe the other slogan would be better. “Be yourself. Nonstop.” When the plane stops you keep going.
