Portland Alaska Airlines Door Plug Blowout Lawsuit Attorneys

Alaska airlines flight 1282 door accident boeing 737


On Friday, January 5th, Alaska Airlines Flight 1282 took off from Portland International Airport heading towards Ontario International Airport in Ontario, California. Shortly after takeoff, the Boeing 737 MAX 9 airplane experienced a rapid drop in cabin pressure as a door plug that was not properly bolted in place blew out about halfway down the fuselage of the aircraft, leaving a gaping hole next to a row of seats. The airplane underwent uncontrolled decompression, forcing the pilots to initiate a rapid descent and make an emergency landing at Portland International Airport.

Thankfully, all 171 passengers and six crew members survived Flight 1282, although three individuals sustained minor physical injuries. This incident led to the immediate grounding of the 737 MAX 9 fleet in the U.S. pending mandatory inspections of all Boeing 737 MAX 9 aircraft with similar door plugs—a panel used to seal an optional emergency exit door—and prompted the opening of an investigation by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and inspections of all Boeing 737 MAX 9 aircraft with similar door plugs.
