Flights at US Airport Delayed Due to Bomb Threat

Tuesday night saw two Southwest Airlines flights grounded due to a threatening phone call was received.  The threatening call was made while Flight 1184 was enroute to Phoenix from Orange County’s John Wayne Airport.  The details of the threatening call and who intercepted it have not been released.  However, once the flight landed in Phoenix it was isolated and according to Manuel Johnson, the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task force and the Phoenix Police Department worked to screen the plane at Sky Harbor.

Ashley Dillon, a spokesperson for Southwest Airlines, said the threat caused airport officials to cancel another flight, Flight 811, due to travel from Orange County to Phoenix.  The flight was cancelled before passengers boarded the plane and that aircraft was also screened.  The threat did not name a specific flight so the err on the side of caution, officials decided to screen both planes.  In the end, both planes were cleared.
