Chicago: A United Airlines flight from the city`s O`Hare International Airport landed safely in Philadelphia after crew members found a threatening message in the plane`s lavatory that said "Bomb on, will die".
The plane, an Airbus A-320 with 113 passengers and five crew members on board, was headed to Philadelphia International airport.
The crew found a hand-written bomb threat on a bathroom wall on the plane during the flight and notified authorities.
