Petition for Exemption; Summary of Petition Received
In accordance with 14 CFR 11.47(c), the FAA has received petitions from the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, AFL-CIO (AFA-CWA) and the Air Line Pilots Association, International (ALPA). Those petitions requested an extension of the comment period for a petition from The Boeing Company. That exemption, if granted, would provide Boeing relief from certain pressurized cabin requirements in regard to uncontained engine failure for Boeing Model 747-8/8F series airplanes. The FAA finds that AFA-CWA and ALPA have substantive interest in the exemption request and show that good cause exists to extend the comment period because it is in the public's interest.
The comment period for the Summary of Petition Received published on August 22, 2008 (73 FR 49734), closed September 11, 2008, and is reopened until October 8, 2008.
