Just heard it on WHDH in BOS, a UA flight 923 (763) from LHR-IAD was diverted and landed in BOS due to a security "disturbance". A woman is bound and isolated at the back of the plane and 3 passengers had a confrontation with the flight crew. Those passengers had suspicious items in their baggage aswell. Hope all goes well!

A Logan spokesman said three passengers had a confrontation with the flight crew. State Police took control of the plane after it landed. All the passengers were being taken off the plane and their carry-on luggage was being checked, said spokesman Phil Orlandella.

Unbelieveable...matches, a screwdriver and vaseline...it is almost not even worth it to fly, as things go relaxed for a couple of days and some imbecile ruins it for everyone else. What is wrong with people and how the hell did this get through security at LHR?

I just read this on the internet. I am freaking out. This makes you ask yourself if it's really safe to fly? I don't think so. Hello, vaseline, a screwdriver, matches. Did this woman get checked in London or not? I am riding trains from now on. Then they tell you that it is safe to fly, bullshit!!!
Obsessed is just a word the lazy use to describe the dedicated.

Quoting COERJ145 (Reply 13): BOS doesn't have 15R. It has 4-22R/L, 18-36R/L, and 9-27.
It's most definitely sitting on a runway "15R"...Fox is showing the plane from a helicopter.
The newscaster on Fox just read an e-mail from Greta Van Sustren saying she was on this plane flying home on Saturday, and that there were two patdowns as well as a few people who clearly stuck out as air marshalls.

Quoting RoseFlyer (Reply 2): If that is serious, how on earth could those find their way on a plane from LHR with all the security procedures now in place.
Well quite easily actually. We're not yet at the stage where passengers are strip searched at security - until we are I should imagine it's quite easy for small items such as these to be smuggled through. How would security know if she had a small jar of Vaseline tucked away in her knickers?
