Flight 55: Dulles to Paris
Due to another reported security threat, Air France Flight 55 from Dulles to Paris also was diverted, to Halifax, Nova Scotia.
A passenger later told CNN over the phone that the flight had been in the air more than two hours when the announcement came that they would be landing due to "operational issues." He said a flight attendant said after the plane landed that it was a security issue.
The passenger said the aircraft was surrounded by emergency vehiclees when it landed and was being checked out by bomb-sniffing dogs. He said passengers were told the security check could take two to four hours.
