SIA confirms bomb threat on flight from San Francisco

TOH EE MING 7:25 PM, NOVEMBER 22, 2015UPDATED: 8:16 PM, NOVEMBER 22, 2015

SINGAPORE — Singapore Airlines has confirmed that there was a bomb threat concerning flight SQ001, which originated from San Francisco and arrived at Changi Airport this afternoon.

In a media statement, SIA said that the matter was referred to the authorities. “We regret we are unable to provide details, as it concerns security,” it said.

The plane landed safely at approximately noon, but disembarkation was delayed until around 1.30pm. Passengers then had to wait for nearly two hours to collect their baggage.

Passengers were calm, although not much information was given by the airline, one of them told TODAY.

“We were held on the tarmac … for about 20 minutes. The captain then made the announcement that the gate was changed,” said Mr Hoe, who declined to give his full name.

“We were then parked at some remote area near the airport, and no further information was given, apart from waiting for air traffic control instructions.

“At approximately 1.10pm, the captain made the announcement that the plane will be held on the tarmac, and we would be ferried to the terminal by airport bus due to security concerns.

“I thought the captain was handling the situation well. No one was panicking on board. We actually didn’t know anything, and everyone thought it was just a normal delay until the announcement was made at 1.10pm. Everyone still remained calm.”

Is this a norm ?

I don't think this is the standard announcement issued by the airline concerned. This is an announcement made up by an overly enthusiastic crew. It was recorded by a passenger on the flight, I was told. Correct me if I am wrong.

ISIS claims they used soda can bomb in Metrojet crash

The three components appeared to constitute a "suicide-type bomb" because the bomber would have to flip the single-throw rocker switch to detonate the bomb, May said. May acknowledged the apparent simplicity and lethality of the bomb. "It doesn't take much to bring down a plane in flight if it's placed in the most critical area of the aircraft, breaking the fuselage," said May, a retired explosives enforcement officer with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Indonesian pilot grounded for ‘offering hostess as compensation’

JAKARTA — An Indonesian airline has grounded a pilot after he allegedly offered an air hostess to passengers as compensation for a delay on a flight to the resort island of Bali.

Loud moaning sounds were also heard from the cockpit throughout the Lion Air flight, with one passenger left so shocked that he lodged a complaint about improper behaviour with the transport ministry.

The passenger, Mr Lambertus Maengkom, said that as the plane took off late from Java island, the co-pilot jokingly announced over the PA system that he was offering a female, divorced flight attendant to passengers to make up for the delay.

“We want to ask whether it is standard procedure, applied by [authorities], to make Lion Air pilots offer a divorced flight attendant to passengers, repeatedly, over the microphone?” Mr Maengkom said in his complaint.

The co-pilot, who has not been named, also loudly wished one of the other crew members “happy birthday” over the PA system during the flight on Saturday, it said.

“It was not funny at all, it was dangerous,” Mr Maengkom said, adding that angry passengers had questioned whether the co-pilot was sober and unsuccessfully sought to confront him when the plane landed.

The incident sparked widespread media coverage in Indonesia and prompted Lion Air, the country’s biggest low-cost carrier, to launch an internal inquiry.

Reporting the results of an initial probe late yesterday (Nov 18), Lion Air announced the co-pilot was being grounded, and investigations were continuing.

“The co-pilot has been grounded and banned from flying,” Lion Air general affairs director Edward Sirait said in a statement.

He did not comment on the air hostess allegation in his statement but insisted the co-pilot was not intoxicated, and that the sounds coming from the cockpit were nothing untoward.

“The co-pilot sounded like he was panting, that’s how he normally talks. The mic was too close to his lips so when he breathed or talked, it sounded like moaning,” Mr Sirait said. AFP
