Alaska Airlines has grounded its Boeing 737-9 Max fleet after “explosive” decompression.

The New York Times writes that Flight 1282 made an emergency landing at Portland International Airport 20 because a wall blew out. Thankfully, all 171 passengers survived.

In a statement yesterday, Alaska Airlines said it would inspect the 65 grounded planes over “the next few days.” Today, the airline updated the statement, saying it’s inspected over a quarter of the fleet and saw “no concerning findings.”
