Bomb scare on Thai Airways flight
Published on Sep 9, 2010
A Thai Airways flight en route from Bangkok to Los Angeles landed safely in the US despite a bomb scare. According to reports, cabin crew found a message in one of the Airbus A340’s toilets saying “there is a bomb on the plane”. The flight, carrying 171 passengers and eight crew, landed in Los Angeles yesterday, where FBI and airport security officials screened the passengers and searched the plane. No explosives were detected. THAI issued a statement yesterday saying that the warning was a hoax, and that the plane had now been released by US authorities to travel the return journey to Bangkok.
