It’s about as vague as it can get – but it had to be investigated. A telephone threat was received by dispatch at Maui Police Department. A specific airline and aircraft were apparently identified but MPD would not elaborate on the content of the threat, any possible motive or other details. The plane was scheduled to depart from Kahului Airport.
The plane, passengers, and luggage were screened as safe, according to the MPD report. The flight is scheduled to depart with delays.
Maui Police officers are investigating the motive for the call.
