San Francisco Plane Gets Threat – Passengers Asked To Leave

Posted: August 19, 2010 in San Francisco

[Posted at 3:14 p.m. ET] A threat made against an American Airlines plane preparing to take off from San Fransisco International Airport on Thursday is prompting authorities to tell the passengers to deplane and be rescreened, the Transportation Security Administration said.

American Airlines Flight 24, which was scheduled to fly to New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, was moved to a remote location at the San Francisco airport, at the TSA’s request, the TSA said.

Passengers will be interviewed and rescreened while law enforcement inspects the aircraft, TSA said.

The threat was made by phone, according to the TSA. No other information about the threat was immediately available.

Wow, if I ever get asked to leave a plane because of a security threat, I would make sure to get my money back… but I would definitely get off of the damn plane.  RUN!

I would actually probably just reschedule.. I would hate to have to go through the baggage lines all over again, and then to have to wonder when the whole time the damn plane is going to blow.
