WASHINGTON (AP) - A Transportation Security spokesman says officials are investigating a report of a threat made over the phone to a flight from San Francisco to New York before the jet took off.
Transportation Security Administration spokesman Greg Soule says the agency asked that the American Airlines plane be moved to a remote location as passengers are deplaned, interviewed and rescreened.
Law enforcement officials are also sweeping the airplane for anything suspicious.
