NEW YORK (AP) — Severe turbulence over the Atlantic Ocean tossed terrified passengers and crew around a Turkish Airlines plane cabin on Saturday, with 30 people suffering bumps, bruises, cuts and a broken leg before the flight landed safely at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, officials said.
“A twin-engine Piper aircraft went down in Lake Okeechobee while on approach to Pahokee Airport at approximately 3:30 p.m. today,” the Federal Aviation Administration said in a statement. “The flight departed from Tampa International Airport. The FAA is investigating. However, the National Transportation Safety Board will be in charge of the investigation and will release updates.”
The initial flights will be between Oakland and Honolulu, with additional flights from Oakland and flights from San Jose added in April and May. Tickets are available on Southwest’s website for the new routes.
Southwest Airlines’ declared state of operational emergency (SOE) remained in effect at three of the carrier’s major mechanics bases on Thursday, as the SOE enters its fourth week.
Sources inside the Aircraft Mechanics Fraternal Association (AMFA) and a Southwest spokeswoman confirmed late Thursday that the SOE remains in effect in Houston and Los Angeles, plus in Dallas, where Southwest has its largest mechanics base with more than 850 on staff. More than 2,400 Southwest mechanics belong to AMFA.

There was no damage to the ship; she remains fully operational and continues her scheduled itinerary.”
