An Alaska Airlines Boeing 737-800, registration N536AS performing flight AS-299 from San Jose (Costa Rica) to Los Angeles,CA (USA) with 142 people on board, was in the initial climb out of San Jose's runway 07 when the left hand engine (CFM56) ingested a bird prompting the crew to level off at 8000 feet, reduced the engine to idle thrust and return to San Jose for a safe landing on runway 07 about 17 minutes after departure.

The flight was cancelled.

The aircraft is still on the ground in San Jose about 30 hours after landing back.

A ground observer reported the left hand engine emitted five bangs and streaks of flame while climbing out, levelled off and returned to San Jose. Emergency services checked the aircraft before the aircraft taxied to the apron.

On Feb 13th 2020 The Aviation Herald received information that the left hand engine is going to be replaced.
