Abbas,

I agree with your presumption that there was no announcement of the real threat. It would have caused panic. He may have said something like "for security reasons". That is an all-embracing expression.

Capt. did the right thing. Land as soon as possible.

Don't know exactly when he was notified. Glad that he had made land-fall. Mid-Atlantic could have been more trickey although I think the track takes them very close to Greenland and Iceland.

All is well that ends well.

Meekal, according to news reports, the PIA Boeing 777 was in or near Swedish airspace when information about bomb threat was forwarded to its crew which apparently indicates airport in Stockholm was the nearest possible for the aircraft to make landing.

Thanks for the information Abbas.

Glad he was over land with an airport nearby.

A woman apparently called police/security from a public pay phone.

Has the aircraft resumed its journey?

Interesting to note three Indians and a Bangladeshi national among passengers, according to following news report. Probably they chose PIA flight from Tornoto for journey to their home country or perhaps they were coming to Pakistan on visit visa.

Quote:
A spokesman for the state-owned Pakistan International Airlines said the suspect was a 25-year-old Canadian national.

Police operation leader Stefan Radman said no explosives were found on the man, who was being questioned by investigators. He said a bomb squad was searching the aircraft, which was parked on a ramp at the end of a runway.

The tip was "called in by a woman in Canada," Radman said, adding that Swedish police took the threat seriously.

Police officials said the man was not on any international no-fly lists and had cleared a security check in Canada. He didn't resist when the SWAT team took him into custody.

Investigators were questioning the man at a police station, and a prosecutor was to decide whether to formally arrest him.

Jan Lindqvist, a spokesman for airport operator Swedavia, said PIA was considering flying the passengers to Manchester, England, from where they would continue their journey to Karachi.

In Pakistan, a spokesman for state-run PIA confirmed the incident involved flight PK782 to Karachi.

"The plane has landed at the Stockholm airport due to security reasons," airline spokesman Sultan Hasan said.

The passengers were waiting at the "international holding area" at the airport as they and their luggage were scanned and searched, Hasan said. Pakistani diplomats were at the airport to coordinate with the security officials.

PIA said there were 255 passengers and 18 crew members on the plane. Of the passengers, 102 were Canadian nationals, 139 Pakistanis, eight U.S. citizens, three Indians and one each from Japan, Malaysia, and Bangladesh.

Yes you desperately need it.

Nothing special found in your post, why should i love your post, it is more of self flattering statement from your side.All i am saying is that you habitually post incident with breaking News, which is not necessary every time.

Now lets back to topic.

lol...how old are you? Anyhow...not going to waste my time with folks like you...please dont bring your negative spewing to this forum like that, its unhealthy...

You obviously dont know a thing or two about journalism yourself, if you think a suspected incident that brings to surface where suspected explosives were found on board a PIA flight is not breaking news as it was originally reported, then I wonder what it is?

Yes I was the one who wrote that pk 302, I can def read English, and that was relatively soon after the Air Blue incident....so what? Abbas Bhai edited it like he did for this...I didnt mind at all...


have a great day... 8)

The man who was taken into custody by authorities at Stockholm Airport has been released, according to latest reports.

So, it was hoax bomb call. Hope authorities manage to arrest hoax bomb caller.

The aircraft has departed from Stockholm airport after getting security clearance, according to PTV News. It will arrive at Manchester from Stockholm.

Due to crew duty time limitation, there will be change of cabin crew and cockpit crew at Manchester airport and then the aircraft will resume its journey to Karachi from Manchester with fresh cockpit and cabin crew.

The Boeing 777 is now expected to land at its homebase Karachi around 8:00AM on September 26.
