FAA proposes to fine United Airlines over preflight checklist

The FAA on Monday proposed a $1.15 million civil penalty against United Airlines for allegedly failing to follow airworthiness directives for Boeing 777 aircraft.

The FAA said that United removed the fire system warning check from its preflight checklist for Boeing 777s in 2018, and that the airline did not perform that required inspection task from June 2018 to April 2021.

Because the check on the fire system warning was not performed, the aircraft did not meet airworthiness requirements, the FAA said. 

United Airlines has 30 days to respond to the FAA after receiving the agency’s enforcement letter.
