Hole in plane grounds 300 Southwest flights nationwide

 

(KMOV)-- About 300 Southwest Airlines flights have been canceled nationwide after a fuselage hole forced an emergency landing Friday.
 
Brandi King of Southwest tells News 4 that 80 aircrafts are undergoing additional inspections.
 
A Boeing 737 traveling from Phoenix to Sacramento landed in Yuma, Arizona, when a hole ripped through the cabin roof. No serious injuries were reported.
 
King did not know how many flights out of Lambert Airport specifically would be affected by the cancelations.
 
Anyone scheduled for one of the canceled flights will be redirected to another Southwest flight. King said passengers can expect up to a two-hour delay.
