JetBlue fleet: An article in the April 5 Business section on how a fuselage crack on a Southwest Airlines jet could delay the company's expansion plans said the incident drew attention to the heavy reliance on older planes by low-cost airlines such as Southwest, JetBlue and others. In fact, JetBlue has one of the youngest domestic fleets of all major airlines, with an average age of 5.4 years.
Homer Smith: The obituary of former college football coach Homer Smith in the April 13 LATExtra section misspelled the Latin phrase Smith quoted after a 1989 comeback victory. He said "Deo gratias," meaning "thanks be to God," not "Deo gratis."
Ray Davies: An article in the April 9 Calendar section about singer Ray Davies' new album misattributed a quote about Davies' influence. It was Ben Lovett of Mumford & Sons, not Ted Dwane, who said: "The bands that influenced me to start songwriting, like Blur, were influenced by the Kinks. Ray stays true to his roots: He's heralded as the great British songwriter because his songs come from that genuine experience. Someone from Nebraska can still relate to 'Till the End of the Day,' but if you're British, it's a treat to really understand the references."
