Man charged by SAS for false bomb threat

Scandinavian airline SAS is seeking 100,000 kronor in damages from a man charged with making a fake bomb threat after missing his flight to Malta from Stockholm.

The flight was about to depart when the 41-year-old man from Gävle in central Sweden demanded to board the plane. When told it was too late, he claimed repeatedly that there was a bomb on the plane. The police were called, the man was detained and the pilot was told to stop the plane. The passengers were forced to disembark while the aircraft was searched – causing a delay of two hours.

Although the man’s breath reportedly smelled of alcohol, his later defence was that he was a diabetic and was not quite sure what he was talking about.
