Northwest's Air Scare
For today, at least, a looming strike isn't the biggest of Northwest Airline's problems. Its daily flight from Amsterdam to Mumbai, India returned to Amsterdam escorted by two fighter jets. Apparently some of the passengers aroused suspicion, although details have not emerged. Jitters subsequent to the terror scare of two weeks ago will no doubt cause more of these incidents, creating further disruptions for air travelers. Northwest cancelled flight 42, the one in question, for today but will resume service tomorrow. If more information surfaces about the 12 passengers who were arrested after the flight landed, I'll post it as a comment to this thread.
