A plane that departed from Los Angeles International Airport bound for Florida was grounded in Texas and evacuated Sunday over a “security concern“.
Delta did not release details regarding the nature of the concern on Flight 1061, but multiple Twitter users who were on the flight said a bomb threat had been made, forcing the evacuation of the plane at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.
Two passenger jets landing in Seattle, Washington were also evacuated and searched for explosives, while flight was diverted to Dallas, Texas for similar safety procedures.
A JetBlue flight from Long Beach, California, and a regional SkyWest jet from Phoenix were both isolated and searched for explosives by security teams with dogs at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport on Sunday.
Passengers of JetBlue flight 1006 reportedly had to exit the plane, which had been sent to a far end of the airfield, using portable stairs, while their luggage was examined by detection dogs. The evacuation lasted for about 45 minutes.
