2 jets searched at JFK after bomb threats

By AP Staff

NEW YORK (AP) - Authorities say two commercial passenger jets have been searched at John F. Kennedy International Airport because of an anonymous phone call claiming explosives were on them. They say no explosives have been found.

Port Authority of New York and New Jersey spokesman Ron Marsico says Port Authority policereceived the threats regarding Finnair Flight 5 from Helsinki and American Airlines Flight 24 from San Francisco on Monday afternoon.

Both planes landed without incident and were immediately searched. Police say both flights have been cleared.

The Port Authority says there was minimal impact on other flights going in and out of JFK.

Earlier this month, Philadelphia police aborted a Dallas-bound flight after someone called to report explosives. They blame the call on a man angry at his girlfriend's ex-boyfriend.

    They probably have to check the Prez’s shoes and underwear for bombs daily too.

    Not accusing him of anything….just sayin’.
