Southwest Airlines (NYSE:LUV): An incident with a Southwestern flight in which the front landing gear assembly collapsed upon touching down at New York’s LaGuardia airport is the last thing that Boeing (NYSE:BA) needs right now, as the plane involved was a 737. However, an aviation analyst with Leeham Co. was quick to recognize that the issue is in no way related to the string of problems plaguing the 787 Dreamliner jets. It’s “just another incident. There are tens of thousands of flights worldwide every day, and things happen.”
