WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A Moroccan airliner traveling from New York to Casablanca was diverted to Maine after a passenger on board made a bomb threat, a U.S. official said Friday.

Royal Air Maroc Flight 201 was en route to Morocco when "a passenger made a phone call to a family member and made a statement that included a bomb threat against the aircraft," said Ann Davis, spokeswoman for the Transportation Security Administration.

Davis said she did not have any additional information about the threat.

The plane, which took off Thursday from New York's John F. Kennedy Airport at 7 p.m. EST, was diverted to Bangor International Airport in Maine. Eighty-two passengers and 10 crew members were aboard, Davis said.

Dunno if the guy was clipped for making a bad joke or discussing the plastique in his luggage. Just posting this to make sure my forgetful, lazy ass follows up on it.

Everybody having a lovely day?
