The airline speaks live that- “everyone is saddened” by Grubbs’ passing. “May his body rest in peace and we are taking care of Officer Grubbs’ family as well as colleagues and our beliefs and prayers are with them during the difficult time.”

Although Most of the tasks during final approach in a Boeing 737 can be handled safely by a single crew member, but it would increase the stress as well as workload for the captain. Preparation of a member of the flight crew group is even rare. A 57-year-old American Airlines captain died in October in the year 2015 after falling ill during a flight between Phoenix to Boston but that flight landed safely after being diverted to Syracuse, New York.

The plane had left the gate in Dallas around 2:50 p.m local time and was wheels up at 3:10 p.m, according to the official intelligence, a flight-tracking service. It was wheeled down at 3:35 p.m. local time after one hour and exact 45 minutes in the air. Modern aircraft are designed so that a single person can safely operate and land an aircraft in an emergency situation. The name of the first officer was not released at press time still pending.
