Last Update: January 24, 2023 / 18:17:38 GMT/Zulu time
On Jan 24th 2023 the NTSB released their final report reporting the flight attendant received a serious injury (fracture of her left forearm) and concluded the probable cause of the accident was:
missing attach screws on the aft galley oven, which allowed it to become dislodged landing, injuring a flight attendant.
The NTSB analysed:
Post flight examination found multiple attach screws on the bottom of the oven were missing, which allowed the oven to slide out of its compartment during the landing. Subsequent to the accident, the operator conducted a fleet inspection of the oven housing attach screws.
