The Federal Aviation Administration said Monday it is proposing a $12 million civil fine against Southwest Airlines for failing to comply with safety regulations related to repairs on Boeing 737 jetliners.
It is the second-largest fine the agency has proposed against an airline. The largest proposed fine was against American Airlines for $24.2 million in August 2010. That one was ultimately settled for $24.9 million as part of Americans bankruptcy proceedings, although the final settlement included other safety violations not part of the original proposal.

Evidently Southwest hasn’t been contributing to Ubama’s campaign funds.
Refuse to fly criminal children all over the country?...
It is really getting troubling to see that every government action is looked upon as a political response. The loss of faith and trust in this government over the last 6 years has been astounding. Unfortunately, it is totally deserved. God Save the Republic!
Gotta fund all of 0bama’s EOs somehow.......
I thought SWA had flown these *chilren* on a red-eye flight, a week or so ago. There was a FReeper on (one of) the flight(s).
Every “government action” that goes against the Constitution is exactly that. We aren’t supposed to have faith and trust in the government, but in God.
Non union? Just like the bogus drug-running charges against FedEx?
SW needs to tell em to f-OFF! What can they do? SW can simply fly people. Is the FAA gonna deny landing rights? Guard any gates to prevent ppl from boarding?
