The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has fined American Eagle Airlines $330,000 for allegedly operating an Embraer 135 regional aircraft on 12 passenger flights when it was not in compliance with Federal Aviation Regulations. The FAA civil penalty fine alleges American Eagle mechanics failed to note broken passenger seats and armrests on two aircraft during a December 18, 2008, and are accused of using one of the aircraft on 12 revenue passenger flights between the inspection and eventual repair of the seats and armrests. American Eagle has 30 days to respond to the FAA’s complaint.
