Onboard Threat Causes SFO United Flight To Divert To Chicago

CHICAGO (CBS/AP) — A United Airlines flight from San Francisco to Frankfurt, Germany, has been diverted to Chicago after a threat was found in a bathroom.

United spokesman Charles Hobart says in an email that Flight 926 landed at O’Hare International Airport about 1 a.m. Sunday. The flight was searched, cleared and allowed to continue on to Germany.

Hobart says a crew member found a sticker with a threatening message in a bathroom and the plane was diverted “in an abundance of caution.”
