A Korean Air flight travelling from Vancouver to Seoul was diverted to a Canadian Forces base on Vancouver Island on Tuesday after the airline received a call about a threat on board. The Boeing 777 with 149 passengers aboard landed safely at CFB Comox under the escort of two U.S. fighter jets. Korean Air said a call centre in Los Angeles received the threat about 25 minutes after the flight took off from Vancouver. The airline said after discussion with the related departments they decided to turn the aircraft around.
