A flight that took off from SFO Saturday night made an unexpected stop in the Windy City early Sunday morning, after a “threatening message” was discovered onboard.
United Airlines Flight 926 was diverted from its SFO-Germany course to Chicago at 1 AM on Sunday. As the Chron reports, the flight landed at O’Hare International Airport due to a threat found in the plane’s bathroom.
While in the bathroom, one of the flight’s crew members discovered a sticker with an unspecified “threatening message” on it. The 247 passengers on the flight briefly disembarked as, says United spokesperson Charles Hobart to the Associated Press “the flight was searched, cleared and allowed to continue on to Germany.”
The flight landed in Frankfurt without incident.
