DALLAS — Federal regulators are proposing more maintenance-related penalties against American Airlines.
The Federal Aviation Administration said it would fine American $787,500 for three cases of alleged maintenance problems.
In one case, regulators say the airline operated a plane without replacing a central computer on the jet. The FAA says mechanics improperly put off the maintenance.
Another case involves inadequate inspections of rudder components on some planes. In the third case, the FAA says mechanics sent a plane back into service before final steps of a thorough maintenance review were checked off as completed.
American has 30 days to respond.
