(KNX1070) - Southwest Airlines says the fatal accident in April, in which a woman was almost sucked out of a plane, has led to fewer bookings.

Still, passengers at LAX say the tragedy didn’t affect their booking plans. KNX reporter Jon Baird was at LAX with the story:

Southwest said back in April that the accident scared some travelers away from buying tickets. But now it looks like the drop will be worse than expected. Revenue per mile flown will likely fall three percent in the current quarter.
