Could FAA warning be key to mystery of flight 370?

(CNN) – The missing Malaysia Airlines plane, a Boeing 777-200ER, has long been considered one of the safest types of airliners around.

But the Federal Aviation Administration approved an order asking that hundreds of 777s be checked for cracks and corrosion issues. The concern? That if these problems were to go undetected, they could possibly lead to decompression problems or a -quote- "loss of structural integrity of a plane" – meaning an aircraft could essentially break-up mid-air.

FAA former chief of staff Michael Goldfarb breaks down what prompted this directive for CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper."
