Strange Way To Catch A Plane

Strange Way To Catch A Plane

Quote:
A man running late for his flight to Phoenix called in a phony bomb threat Monday in hopes that the plane would be delayed long enough for him to get on board, police said.

America West clerks at the Rogue Valley International-Medford Airport became suspicious and notified police after the man came to their desk asking about Flight 6262, which by then was on its way back to the airport because of the threat, said Medford Police Lt. Mike Moran.

The man was held on outstanding, unrelated criminal charges and being questioned by the FBI, Moran said. The suspect was not immediately identified.

The plane, an America West express shuttle operated by Mesa Airlines, returned to the airport around 3 p.m., after the threat was called into America West headquarters.

I don't really see what's suspicious about asking about a flight that you thought you missed. Maybe you "had to be there."

The story reminds me of this article.

Who knows, perhaps he asked something along the lines of, "is flight 6262 on its way back yet?"
