Hijacking Threat Made Against American Airlines Flight To JFK

CNN is reporting that passengers aboard an American Airlines heading from San Francisco to New York’s John F. Kennedy airport following a hijacking threat.

The telephoned threat, which claimed that the plane would be hijacked but which did not apparently include any sort of hostage threat, prompted TSA officials to interview and re-screen all passengers aboard flight 24 while law enforcement inspects the aircraft.

No suspicious materials have been found in or on the plane as of yet.
