Two American Airlines planes receive bomb threats

Airliners about to take off from Philadelphia and Boston were searched Wednesday after authorities received a telephoned bomb threat against the two American Airlines flights, authorities said. Philadelphia International Airport officials evacuated 19 passengers from American Airlines Flight 4543 at about 6:30 a.m., airport spokesman Mark Pesce said. Pesce said the passengers were rescreened while the plane was searched. Nothing was found, he said. The flight to Boston was canceled anyway, the airline said. Later, in Boston, a connecting flight to London’s Heathrow Airport, American Airlines Flight 156, was searched at Logan International Airport as it was about to take off. Nothing was found and the flight was allowed to take off with 159 passengers, American Airlines spokeswoman Jacquie Young said. Full Story
