DALLAS (AP) – American Airlines says it will inspect eight planes after loose seats were found on two different planes in the last three days.

American Airlines spokeswoman Andrea Huguely said Monday that there could be a problem with the way certain seats fit into tracking on the floor of the Boeing 757 planes.

Huguely says the airline has notified the Federal Aviation Administration.

On Saturday a flight from Boston to Miami made an emergency landing in New York after three seats on the Boeing 757 came loose shortly after takeoff. Huguely said a second plane was discovered to have loose seats on Monday but details weren’t immediately available.
