Airbus A380 Lufthansa (LH441), diverted to New York
The decision was made following a bomb threat, which reached Lufthansa headquarters. The plane landed in solitude and was targeted by authorities in a more remote area of the airport. Passengers were disembarked, under the care of the Lufthansa crew, and NYPD geniuses investigated the aircraft.
Everything was done according to the protocol established for such situations! Even if the threat does not appear to be real, the safety of the passengers is first and every trace of suspicion must be eliminated.
