Man Calls in Bomb Threat So He Won’t Miss Plane

A reporter covering the Euro 2008 soccer/football tournament found himself running late for his Air Dolomiti flight from Verona to Vienna.  So he did what any of us would do:  he called the airline and made a bomb threat so the flight would be delayed.  Clever.

Except that when he arrived at the airport he said to the gate agent that he heard the flight was delayed.  Which was funny, as it hadn’t been delayed.  Police then interviewed the man and found, of course, that he used the cellphone on him to make the bomb threat.  The end.


  1. LMAO, very funny/sad! I’ll have to keep that in mind tomorrow if I’m running late for my TPA-JFK flight, as not to miss the inaugural OpenSkies flight.;)
