JAMAICA — Authorities at John F. Kennedy International Airport said a false bomb threat called in on three planes Monday was a hoax.
Two American Airlines planes and one Finnair plane were held and searched around 3 p.m. as FBI agents and Port Authority police searched the planes in response to an anonymous call of hijackers on the planes.
According to the Breaking News Network, one of the American Airlines flights had four air marshals on board and nothing had happened on board.
Similar threats were called in at other airports, according to BNN.
The planes were cleared and the threat declared a hoax.
