Bomb Alert On Ryanair Jet

Chief Captain

A Ryanair flight from Paris to Dublin was diverted to Glasgow's Prestwick Airport on Wednesday after a hoax bomb alert, the Irish airline said.

"A note was passed to the cabin crew claiming that there was a bomb on board the aircraft," it said in a statement.

The captain reported the warning to air traffic controllers who ordered him to divert to Prestwick.

The plane was escorted into the Scottish airport by Royal Air Force fighters.

All 167 passengers were taken off the plane and questioned by police while the aircraft was searched and the airport was reopened.

Five hours after it landed, police said they had found no bomb on board but were continuing to interview the passengers. Ryanair said it hoped the plane would resume its journey to Dublin at 2100 GMT.

That must have been pretty scarey: looking out the window and seeing two fighters along side! And the bomb of course!

FWIW, Ryanair has placed an order for 225(Yes, two-hundred, twenty-five) brand new 737-800's from Boeing...that's not something a failing airline would do.

I have more faith in Ryanair's survival than any other airline, including the Virgin line and Southwest.

You may have faith in the airlinemy friend but the honest truth is that if they are going to continue the way they are going at the moment then I'm sorry = they won't be in the skys for that much longer.

to be honest, if they stay cheap enough - people will keep using them - alot of people understand that you get what you pay for.

there can't be any sign of financial issues for them to be able to order that many new aircraft.
