Authorities have given the all clear after a bomb threat was made against a Delta Air Lines flight at New York's JFK Airport Monday night.
Port Authority spokesman Joe Pentangelo told the Associated Press that the telephoned threat was made against Delta Flight 468, which was arriving from San Francisco. He said the threat was made while the plane was still in the air.
Pentangelo said the plane landed just after 7:40 p.m. local time and was taken to a remote part of the runway and swept for explosives. Passengers were taken by bus to the main terminal, where they would be interviewed.
According to Delta, the Boeing 757 flight had 171 passengers on board. Spokeswoman Lindsay McDuff said information about the threat had been passed on to federal authorities. She added that the threat against the plane was received by another airline, but did not specify which one.
McDuff said Delta also currently operates a JFK to Tel Aviv flight under the same flight number and was in the process of boarding Monday night. Pentangelo says that plane also was searched and cleared.
No injuries or arrests were reported.
