Alaska Airlines Cooperates with DOJ Investigation

Flight crew members and passengers are being interviewed in the door panel incident from January.

Alaska Airlines stated that it is “fully cooperating” with the Department of Justice investigation regarding the January 5 flight in which a door panel blew out midflight. Government officials are interviewing crew members and passengers about the emergency landing initiated after one of the plane’s door panels blew off mid-flight.

“In an event like this, it’s normal for the DOJ to be conducting an investigation,” Alaska Airlines stated. “We are fully cooperating and do not believe we are a target of the investigation.”

Chair Jennifer Homendy of the National Transportation Safety Board testified before a Senate committee that Boeing had yet to provide the requested information regarding the employees who worked on the door panel plugs and documentation on the repair of the Boeing 737 Max 9 panel.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Justice Department officials as they conduct their criminal investigation into the Alaska Airlines incident.
  • For Chair Homendy as she continues to seek information and documentation from Boeing.
  • For Administrator Michael Whitaker as he oversees FAA investigations of airline incidents.
