Passengers on Southwest Airlines Flight 1380, the plane that made an emergency landing in Pennsylvania on Tuesday after an engine failure, are already receiving money to help them recover from the harrowing experience.
Passengers dragged her back into the cabin, but she died at a Philadelphia hospital after the plane made an emergency landing.
"We value you as our customer and hope you will allow us another opportunity to restore your confidence in Southwest as the airline you can count on for your travel needs", Siwatu's letter said. The entire Southwest Airlines Family is devastated and extends its deepest, heartfelt sympathy to the passengers, employees, family members and loved ones affected by this tragic event.
Levin says it's hard to pinpoint exactly how much more money the passengers can expect to get as a result of the incident, though USA Today reported that history indicates each person could receive $250,000 or more.
The National Transportation Safety Board is trying to determine why a fan blade tore loose, shattering the CFM engine and shooting fragments at a wing and the fuselage of the Boeing Co. The airline has provided a number for passengers who need to be reunited with their luggage.
The company verified the report, telling HuffPost in an email on Friday: "Ours is a company and culture built on relationships".
The engine of Southwest Airlines Flight 1380 failed on Tuesday about 20 minutes into its flight from New York City to Dallas.
Southwest announced its own program for similar inspections of its 700-plane fleet over the next month. Before Tuesday, the most recent fatal accident came in February 2009 near Buffalo, New York, when an aircraft operated by the now-defunct regional airline Colgan Air crashed.
An individual familiar with the investigation said it is likely Riordan's neck broke from the force of the airplane's speed when her head was pulled outside. It will require inspections of some CFM56-7B engines.

"They probably didn't pay attention to the emergency instructions", Ms Marguerite Bartlett, an American Airlines flight attendant in the 1960s, said in an interview.
Mackey said she was in seat 14C and Riordan, a bank executive from Albuquerque, New Mexico, was in seat 14A, a window seat.
The FAA anticipated that 220 engines in the United States would be affected by its order. They've also recovered the airplane's cockpit voice recorder and flight data recorder, and are still tracking down debris from the engine.
Only time will tell how significant of an impact that these inspections may have on specific airlines, but should this be a widespread issue, there may be major short-term impacts on air travel within the United States.
