Flight To Newark Resumed After Search For Explosive Device
Turned Up Nothing
A Lufthansa 747-400 headed from Frankfurt to Newark made an
unscheduled stop in Ireland over the weekend after the airline got
a call saying there was a "suspect device" on board.
"It was rerouted into Dublin because apparently Lufthansa had
received a call to their call center saying there was a suspect
device aboard," the airport spokeswoman said.
Passengers debarked and the aircraft was searched, but nothing
was found. So, the 373 passengers and 18 crewmbmers climbed back in
and took off for New Jersey.
There was no other immediate information on the hoax.
