i still can't believe that people are sick enough to call in a bomb threat or anything of this sort....just really weird...
The only time there is too much fuel onboard, is when you're on fire!

bomb threats freak me out....

it's one thing when people leave something onboard by accident

and it's another when they pick up the phone and tell someone a bomb is onboard....we have a lot of those here and it always makes me uneasy..

Since when did Alaska pick up 747-400's... Another writer who doesn't have a clue. From STLGph's linked article:

"The 747-400 series aircraft was due to depart at 9:21 a.m. and was already at its gate when the threat was called in, said Joanne Holloway, another airport spokesperson."

Someone should email CBS5.com and say, "Everyone know that ASA doesn't fly 747-400 series aircraft - they only fly 777-300ER models" and see if they change it!
