FBI Investigates Anonymous Phone Threats Against Commercial Airliners

The FBI is investigating anonymous telephone threats against commercial airliners Monday that involved at least six international flights and prompted at least one U.S. military escort, the Associated Press reports.

Investigators believe the calls were connected but not credible.

Still, authorities took precautions. For example, threats of a chemical weapon aboard an Air France flight into New York prompted U.S. military jets to escorted the jet.

“Out of an abundance of caution, Air France flight number 22 was escorted to John F. Kennedy airport by U.S. Air Force fighter jets following a phone threat,” the FBI said in a statement. “There were no incidents or hazards reported on board the flight by either the passengers or its crew. The plane has been cleared.”

In some cases, the threat involved planes that were already in the air. Others had not taken off yet.
