I thought the wires were running three days late when I saw something about all passengers on a Delta/Northwest flight being taken off a plane that just landed in Detroit. A Delta/Northwest Flight 253.


Metro Airport spokesman John Witner said there was a report of suspicious activity on the Delta/Northwest flight 253 from Amsterdam Sunday. That is the same flight number as the flight that a Nigerian man was suspected of attempting to blow up over Detroit on Christmas Day.

All 257 passengers and 12 crew have deplaned safely, said Delta spokeswoman Susan Elliott. The flight landed safely in Detroit at 12:34 p.m. Sunday.

Apparently, this fellow, also from Nigeria, locked himself in a lav and wouldn't come out.

Hey, Janet, is the system still working?
