Report: CZ Flight On CAN>SYD Returns After Threat

Tue Aug 22, 2006 9:50 am

Just saw this: CNN.com is reporting that a China Southern flight returned to CAN after a threatening note was found aboard.

Anyone have any more details, or better does anyone over on that side of the world know anything more? I believe this is the daily 777 flight on CZ down to Sydney...

Quoting SQ452 (Thread starter):

Yes it is the daily service to SYD from Guangzhou but it was not the B777 it was the A330 that was flying this route today

I think this the 3rd bomb scare/threat in the last month for a flight heading to SYD or from SYD.
