Yesterday afternoon, just before 3 p.m., a man called the Port Authority Police and claimed there were explosives on two flights coming into JFK Airport. But, after an investigation by the Port Authority and federal investigators, there was no threat on either jet.

The planes singled out were an American Airlines flight from San Francisco and a Finnair Flight 55 from Helsinki, both scheduled to land at around 3:45 p.m. When they landed, both planes were isolated from the rest of the airport. WCBS 2 has the exchange between the AA pilot and traffic control: "Pilot: 'What do you have? Traffic Control: 'I don’t have a thing at this moment except that you and the aircraft beside you need to wait in that area.' Pilot: 'Okay we are surrounded by emergency vehicles. There’s a reason for this. Somebody’s got to give us the reason or we are going to evacuate the aircraft (pause) … you got 60 seconds.'"

One passenger told to the Daily News, "The air of tension was thickened when passengers were told they could not use their cellphones and would need an escort to use the bathroom." Port Authority spokesman Al Della Fave said that the planes were inspected for 45 minutes-1 hour, and then they were given an all-clear. When passengers arrived at the gate, they clapped.

The authorities are trying to figure out if they can determine who made the call, though the News says it's "untraceable."
