FBI agents were interviewing passengers and crew of a United Airlines flight that landed at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport Friday after the crew found a written bomb threat in the lavatory.
A FBI spokeswoman says the plane was inspected and cleared after being moved to an isolated part of the airfield.
The regional jet, flight number 5394, had 62 passengers and four crew members on board when it landed just before 3 p.m. Central time en route from Los Angeles. FBI spokeswoman Beverly Esselbach said there would be several hours of interviews.
A statement from the airport said that the incident did not cause delays or the cancellations of other flights.
