As far as I know, MD did not utilize the cold bonding process.

The picture below is making the email rounds here. It is supposed to be a picture of the offending roof section from SWA 812 last week. I can't say it is genuine but have no reason to think it isn't.

I'm surprised that they owned up so quickly to this.

Best thing he could do. He probably celebrated this news! A poor workmanship issue on a 15 year old airplane is FAR better than a design flaw on hundreds of 737's flying around. This is wonderful news for Boeing.
