Delta Jets Land without Incident Despite Hijacking Threats

NEW YORK (AP) - Two inbound Delta Air Lines flights that reportedly received telephoned threats of a hijacking landed without incident Friday at Kennedy Airport.

WNBC-TV reported that Flight 119 from Paris and Flight 81 from Amsterdam received separate threats. It said there was no breach of the cockpits.

Calls to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which operates the airport, Delta and the Transportation Security Administration were not immediately returned.

WNBC said the threat to Flight 119 came into NORAD, or the North American Aerospace Defense Command, in Colorado.
