http://www.nu.nl/news.jsp?n=254833&c=20 link is only in Dutch.... a passenger on KLM flight KL1601 to Rome sunday 4 January (a 737 with 130 passengers) told the flight attendant he is a terrorist and that he was carrying a gun. A few minutes later he said it was a joke. The F/A was not amused and the crew let the guy being arrested by an anti terrorist force in Rome.
The guy is reported to be a staffmember of the Egyptian ambassey.
Unbelieveable this dork can make a tasteless joke like that in this period, especially when considering the airliner tragedy in Egypt the day before I hope he gets fired as well as brought to justice.

Tasteless joke for sure. But a real terrorist would never say he is a terrorist.
Good thing the fool is arrested.

I love both Airbus and Boeing as much as I love aviation!

Immigration officer: "What's the purpose of your visit to the USA?" Spotter: "Shooting airliners with my Canon!"

It is amazing that these people still make jokes like these. Every time you read about it, they get arrested, and no one finds it amusing.

Oddly enough, my sister was taking her 2 year old son from Glasgow down to London on a BA flight, and at check-in, the agent was being friendly to her son, and he looks up and says " I have a gun..., I am a terror"w"ist, and you are a dictator !!!"

My sis was stunned, and didn't even know that he knew words like those. They were searched extra hard, and the reason is that 2 year olds are generally like parrots, and repeat things that they hear, and while it is clear that her son is not a terrorist, she could have been, and he may have overheard the comments.

and that's my story for now...
