FBI: No valid bomb threat on JetBlue flight diverted to Buffalo

Mar 12, 2012

The FBI says there was no valid threat to a Boston-to-Chicago JetBlue flight that landed in Buffalo after a woman called authorities to say a passenger might pose a bomb threat.

Steven Lanser, of the FBI's Buffalo office, says the threat was not real and the incident appears to be the result of a domestic dispute.

A woman in the Boston area called to say there might be a bomb aboard Flight 923. The pilot was told what was happening, but 83 passengers aboard were only told they were diverting to Buffalo-Niagara International Airport.
