WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- Delta Airlines is facing some penalties for allegedly flying planes that did not meet Federal Aviation Administration standards.
The fines involving maintenance infractions total almost $1 million.
The first is for failing to repair a chip in the nose radome. That is the cone on an airplane that protects a plane's radar antenna.
The FAA says Delta also failed to repair a broken cockpit floodlight socket.
The airline has 30 days from when they got the FAA's enforcement letters to respond to the agency.
