NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — FBI agents are going to meet an incoming flight at a New Jersey airport after reports that a passenger claimed that everyone aboard had been poisoned.
United Airlines Flight 116 from Hong Kong is scheduled to land at about 2 p.m. Eastern on Monday at Newark Liberty Airport, outside New York City.
An FBI spokesman says there is no indication that any passengers had actually been poisoned, and that the passenger stood up and made the statement several hours ago and that the decision was made to continue on to Newark.
A United Airlines spokeswoman says the crew followed procedures and the flight continued as scheduled.
