    First flight didn’t really have a window problem. More of an engine problem.

    Won't even give it a thought. We fly them in 23 days.

    Nothing burger.

    Planes make unplanned landings all the time

    It rarely makes the news. The only reason this is a news story is because it comes shortly after SW's engine incident.

    Yep. I often laugh at the things from the airline world that makes the news because if people only knew the things that didn't.........

    Wonder how often this sort of thing happens, but we just do not hear about it?

    In the meantime, I really have to laugh when people say that Southwest has a window problem. The first one had little to do with the window, it was the engine. The next one is a crack and not a blowout or shattered. (terms I have seen elsewhere about this already)

    Cabin window cracks are quite rare. Cockpit windowshield cracks are not uncommon. (Just as with vehicles, it is almost always a ding or crack in your windshield, not your side or back windows)

    Exactly what I thought... I've always been a fan of the window seat. I'm gonna switch it up in a couple weeks.

    Look closely at the cabin window next flight on any commercial jet. There are actually three panes. The inner one next to you is thick plastic with a breather hole in it to equalize pressure. Then there is an outer heavy glass pane that sees the atmosphere. Inside that is another "structural' glass pane to back up the outer one.

    I guess window seats are going to be easy to get.

    With this in mind, it must have been a hell of an impact to knock that window out.
