Man`s bomb comment delays flight in New York

No explosive device was found on the flight from Chicago to New York.



Ronkonkoma: An airport official says a man "made a comment about a bomb" on a flight from Chicago to New York`s MacArthur Airport, forcing passengers to deboard as authorities inspected the aircraft.

No explosive device was found. The man was taken into custody after the last afternoon`s incident on a Southwest Airlines flight.

MacArthur Airport Commissioner Teresa Rizzuto says charges are still pending.

She says the suspect made the comment to a flight attendant before the plane landed.

The flight was making a scheduled stop at the Long Island airport before leaving for West Palm Beach, Florida. It continued on later.

Southwest Airlines didn`t immediately return a call seeking comment.
