Passenger Detained after Threat on Southwest Flight

By  | 

A passenger aboard a Southwest Airlines flight has been detained after allegedly making a bomb threat.

An airline spokeswoman says the threat was made on Flight 45, on its way from Albuquerque to Dallas last night. The plane was carrying 137 passengers.

Another passenger on the aircraft tells Dallas-Fort Worth station KTVT that a man sitting about four rows away from him said there was a bomb aboard the plane shortly before it began its final approach.

The plane landed on time and police took away the passenger accused of making the threat. A search of the plane turned up nothing.
