Dutch daily NRC Handelsblad writes about an SK flight that got cancelled yesterday due to a terrorism scare. No link yet, sorry.

Quote:
When boarding the CPH-AMS flight, one passenger panicked because of allegedly suspect behaviour of a group of five Iraqis. They were carrying bags near the gate when three of them went to the toilet. When they reappeared, the Dutch passenger thought that they had changed their bags, the Copenhagen police reported.

The passenger informed the security staff and subsequently refused to board. The captain then informed the police who searched the plane with dogs and interrogated the Iraqis and other passengers. "The investigation showed that the Iraqis had not changed bags at all, and the Dutchman had been mistaken. It was a mistake." said Carsten Holder, of the Danish police. "It is good that passengers take good care of their security, I don't blame him for being wrong."

The investigation took several hours, which made SAS decide to cancel the flight. The Dutchman took another flight home this morning, and also the Iraqis have gone home meanwhile. All Iraqis are working for an Iraqi airline and had been taking a course in Helsinki.

I wonder if the Iraqis were given an apology...

He actually rented a car and drove home to the Netherlands.. Probably the best to stay on the ground anyway - there could be suspicious people on the flight!



Future flights: CPH-BRU; CPH-NRT-MNL; MNL-PVG-CPH; CPH-LAX

I wonder how many cartoons or films will be made to emphasize the islamofobic behavior of some of my fellow countryman (I'm Dutch!).  stirthepot

Then where did your quoted info come from? (Not being accusatory; I just wanted to read more about it.)

Probably from a printed newspaper.



There is no such thing as Boeing vs Airbus as the queen of the skies has three engines, winglets and the sweetest nose!

I feel sorry for the Iraqi guys, they had the worst kind of home journey...
It has been in the Finnish papers too, but only in Finnish sorry. Not much more to add to the original story above, the news said the Iraqi group took some aviation course in Finland.

From the subscription section of above newspaper, which does not show a direct URL nor does it allow you to copy/paste stuff. I looked on Google News but found nothing. That was yesterday though, maybe other sources have picked up on it in the meantime.
