Brazil: Air France Jet Lands After Bomb Threat


Recommended Posts

I'm guessing that many hoax bomb threats are directed at the airline involved, in an effort to cause them expense, operational difficulties and loss of business and reputation. Whether from irate customers, employees, competitors, etc, it's a way to easily cause a lot of grief for a carrier you're not happy with. Of course, that's done at the risk of spending some time in the Iron Bar Inn if caught, but the world is full of people whose anger exceeds their intelligence by a fair margin.

I hadn't heard they'd shifted to a Boeing for that run. That must be viewed as being almost treasonous in la belle France.
