JetBlue flight in DomRep delayed after threat

JetBlue flight in DomRep delayed after threat

Officials say an anonymous bomb threat briefly grounded a JetBlue flight that was departing the Dominican Republic for Puerto Rico.
Airline spokeswoman Jenny Dervin says the caller did not single out a specific airline or flight. She said authorities detained the JetBlue plane because it was one of the few departing flights early Tuesday.
Dervin said the flight to San Juan was delayed by 40 minutes.
It is unclear if the caller was identified or anyone arrested.
Dominican officials did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The threat was made as authorities worldwide increased security following an attempted Christmas Day attack on a U.S.-bound flight.
