Hi

LAN 340 flight 600 EZE-SCL-LIM-LAX had to return to EZE this saturday due to a call received in Argentina, threatening the flight with a supposed bomb onboard.

The flight returned after 30 minutes of flight. LAN confirmed the flight had to return, but they didn't confirm the bomb alert. Any news? For Argentine people maybe?

Regards )( Arcano

Que tal Arcano,

That was probably a pibe with a cellphone, free minutes to spare, and time to kill. Lots of teens and pre-teens have cellphones in the provinces these days.

So: cell phone + outstanding call minutes + boredom = bomb threat pranks.

In any case, so far no evidence of a concerted Argentine grass-roots terrorist movement to bring down LAN aircraft has been uncovered...  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Saludos!

Yeap, what would happen to that moron of they catch him?

Imagine you would have to pay for a 340 returning to your airport. That's a lot fuel to owe...
