It said it would meet on Nov. 19.

The accident airplane, a Boeing 737-700 (N:) powered by two CFM International CFM56-7B engines, experienced a failure of the left engine after departing New York’s LaGuardia Airport, when a fan blade failed. The plane diverted to Philadelphia International Airport and eight other passengers suffered minor injuries.
