Egyptair Flight Diverted to Glasgow after Written Threat Found Onboard

An Egyptair flight that was traveling from Cairo to JFK International Airport in New York was forced to divert to Glasgow Prestwick Airport after a note was found onboard that threatened to blow up the plane.  The Boeing 777 was carrying 326 passengers and was surrounded by armed police when it landed at Glasgow at 2:30 pm on Saturday.  All passengers were interviewed and baggage checked

The note was found about three hours into the flight by passenger Nada Tawfik, a BBC New York producer, in the sink of one of the washrooms onboard the plane.  The note said “I’ll set this plane on fire,” and a seat number was also written down.  Tawfik reported the note immediately and the washroom was locked.  According to the airport, all other flights at the airport are operation as normal.
