ANKARA, Turkey – Turkish Airlines says an Istanbul-bound plane carrying 134 passengers made an emergency landing at New Delhi after note with the word "bomb" was found in a toilet, the latest in a series of such incidents.
The airline said Tuesday that a crew member discovered the note on Flight TK 65, some three hours after it took off from Bangkok. It was diverted to New Delhi as precaution and was being searched.
Turkish Airlines has been plagued by bomb scares recently, including five previous cases of notes found in toilets that have disrupted or diverted flights, reportedly costing the company millions of dollars.
The planes were searched each time and no bomb was found.
