An Air France co-pilot was arrested for making a bomb threat. What he actually said was
- `Well, what do you think, I have a bomb on me?’
This arrest was about as brilliant as detaining the teenager in Boston who put a note in his luggage saying he didn’t have a bomb.
Annoying, but par for the course for the TSA. Except in this case it wasn’t just a single passenger delayed, or even a concourse evacuated — the Air France 747 flight had to be cancelled. And — blame both the TSA and Air France — the disserviced passengers weren’t even given a hotel room for the night. Most slept in the airport and made it out on the 10:30am flight the next morning.
