As if flying didn't suck enough already.

"A 46-year-old woman threatened there was a bomb in her checked luggage when she was told she couldn't board a flight at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport because of her late arrival at the gate, authorities say."

"Passengers were evacuated from the plane, which had been taxiing on the runway, as the Broward Sheriff's Office's bomb squad investigated. The FBI was also contacted."


Wait, what? If luggage is put on a plane but the corresponding passenger does not make the flight then the plane is not even allowed to leave the gate. They should have just been able to verify her luggage was not on the plan and let the plane go on its way. But, I guess it is better to overly cautious.

No.  What does not make sense is that she was denied boarding due to her late arrival at the gate.  Yet her bag got stowed.  Why would they stow the luggage for a late arrival?  One scenario is that she arrived on time, checked her bag, and then went to the airport bar to down a few, thus arriving late at the gate after checking the bag.  The article is sketchy on details.

What an absolutely horrible movie. It was just a remake that pretty much just used the same jokes, but in the sequel they were just dull and tired.

They probably checked their bags and then did not go directly to their gate but went shopping or sat down and one of the restaurants for dinner, or if they were really early they may have even left the airport to go get some food. Whatever it is they were obviously not at the gate, lost track of time, and did not make it to the gate in time for final boarding. And when that happens an alert is supposed to be issued (not sure who issues it or how it is done exactly) and the baggage handlers are supposed to remove the unattended luggage. It is a weird situation because in the time it takes for the luggage to be found and removed they could just as easily have opened up the plane and let the family on the flight.

How did she think this action could possibly help? Oh, right, she's just another spoiled, bratty child, in an adult's body, having a temper tantrum.

If they made it the policy to let people on if they miss final boarding but their baggage has been loaded already, they would probably have even more flight delays because people would start taking that into account and showing up late to the gate more often.

The TSA are always looking for an excuse to make themselves feel better about their security theatre.

Idiot's Brain:  I just expensed my lunch at the airport bar.  I am sooooo  smrt.  Accounting will never notice that it's 9:30 and I had 4 beers.  Tee-hee.

Idiot's Eyes:  Everything's foggy, Brain.  Looks like we're late to the gate.  They've closed the door!

Idiot's Brain:  Well, they'll just have to fix this for me!  I have to be on that plane!  Here are my possibilities:
1> Ask nicely
2> Threaten them with their jerbs
3> Bomb threat.  Gotta empty the plane and then I can sneak right on.

This lady has a kid. In high school I thought my parents were embarrassing . . . how many times in life has this lady Karened it up before deciding it was time to move to bomb threats? I hope the dad divorces psycho mom and moves the kid to a new school district.

If a passenger on that flight misses a connection, or misses an event due to the delay, is there any legal recourse against the woman who made the bomb threat?

Great plan. Hopefully this idiot will serve time for it. fark the "mental health evaluation," this biatch should serve some time in a federal institution.

Everyone exiting or entering Florida should have a psych evaluation.

Concur. All other passengers should be allowed to legally access the woman's info and sue her forever. She caused the problem, so she should pay for each and every one of their costs derived from her behavior. Personal responsibility, etc...
