American Airlines Flight Deplaned After Two Suspicious Passengers


An American Airlines flight at Reagan National Airport was deplaned Sunday after members of the crew expressed concern about two passengers on board, according to Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA).

Passengers on American Airlines flight 2124 to Boston were asked to leave the plane so MWAA police could sweep the aircraft with a K9 team. Security officials said they did not detect any abnormalities.

Two suspicious individuals were questioned by MWAA and eventually released.

American Airlines confirmed 115 passengers continued on to Boston without further incident.

The other two passengers were accommodated on a later flight, according to the airline.
