Abu Dhabi’s Etihad Airways confirmed yesterday that a security threat on Tuesday delayed the departure of an Etihad flight from Abu Dhabi to Bangkok.  Etihad Airways’ Chief Operational Officer Richard Hill said that while passengers were boarding flight EY403 to Bangkok on Tuesday, January 12th, a male passenger made comments threatening the security of the aircraft.  

Mr. Hill said “a thorough check of the aircraft was implemented, in conjunction with Abu Dhabi police and airport authorities.  The aircraft was cleared for departure and left Abu Dhabi at just after 3:50 a.m.”   An Etihad spokesman declined to disclose the nationality or circumstances of the passenger allegedly threatening the security of flight EY403.
