American Airlines has experienced instances where loose rows of seats have occurred on two Boeing 757 airplanes. Here are the specifics:

On Sept. 27, while in Miami, row 12 seats D, E and F were found to be loose and the row was tightened before the aircraft was returned to service. On Saturday, Sept. 29, AA 685 on a flight from Boston to Miami air interrupted into JFK when the same row of seats became loose on the same plane. Customers were re-accommodated on another plane that flew them to Miami. After the incident last Saturday, maintenance tightened the row a third time and the plane returned to service. On Sunday, the securing mounts on the row were replaced entirely.

Meanwhile, on Sept. 26, on AA 2206, Dallas/Fort Worth to Vail, row 14 seats A, B and C became loose. The row was tightened and checked by maintenance personnel and the plane was returned to service. Later that day, after a flight from Dallas/Fort Worth to Boston, maintenance tightened the seats once again.  On Monday, Oct. 1, AA 433, the same 757, on a flight from JFK to Miami, air interrupted back into JFK when the same row of seats became loose. Customers were re-accommodated on another plane that flew them to Miami.
