Hey,

Sincerely,

Hey,

Apparently, somewhat of a hoax, but here it is. AA jet from NY to Tokyo made an emergency landing because of a letter opener mistake for a knife.

How in the hell can someone mistake a letter opener for a knife?! Knives have sharp edges on one side and has a dull edge on the other. Letter openers are dull on both sides.

Boy oh boy....

If the flight was JFK-NRT, what kind of "emergency landing" would have occurred if they in fact landed at NRT? Doesn't seem like much of an emergency.

If it was in the cockpit's crew lounge why was it a problem?

I think everyone will agree that anything significantly sharp or harder than human flesh could be jammed into another person with enough force...

Glad the plane went on to its destination!
