New details are surfacing about Tulsa's possible role in the recent American Airlines seating issues.
The company confirmed Tuesday that passenger seats on a third flight came loose in mid-air.
American officials say the loose seats are not an act of sabotage by angry workers.
The airline acknowledged Tuesday that seats came loose on a flight last week between Vail, Colo., and Dallas. The same thing happened on a flight Saturday and another on Monday.
One of the planes involved in the latter incidents was recently serviced at Tulsa's maintenance base, according to the Associated Press.
The other plane was serviced at a Timco Aviation Services facility in North Carolina. Timco has declined to comment.
American Airlines spokeswoman Andrea Huguely says the airline is inspecting eight of its Boeing 757s that share similar seat assemblies.
KTUL.com has asked American Airlines for comment and confirmation on Tulsa's involvement with these maintenance issues.
Here's the airline's response so far, from spokesperson Kent Powell:
"We're working very diligently to gather all the facts related to our 757 seats issue. Our maintenance teams continue to inspect aircraft in our 757 fleet to determine what caused the issue. We'll have an updated statement and additional information to share this afternoon."
