COLOMBO, Sri Lanka (AP) - A SriLankan Airlines stewardess called in a bomb threat because she wanted a day off, a newspaper reported Sunday.
Investigators traced the call and found that it was made from a mobile phone belonging to the stewardess’ boyfriend, Colombo’s Sunday Times weekly reported.
“The inquiry reveals that the stewardess had given the false alarm because she did not want to fly that day,” it said.
The stewardess was fired, it reported.

SriLankan Airlines spokeswoman Ruvini Jayasinghe declined to either confirm or deny the report and referred the call to senior officials, who were not immediately reachable.

In recent months, two bomb threats forced aircraft to return to the ground in Sri Lanka.
On Oct. 3, a London-bound SriLankan Airlines plane returned to Colombo’s international airport after a telephone caller said there was a bomb on board. The aircraft landed safely and no explosives were found.
On Sept. 8, one passenger was killed and 20 others were injured in a stampede to evacuate a Saudi Air plane at the same airport after a similar bomb threat.

SriLankan Airlines is 40 percent owned by Dubai-based Emirates Airlines and 60 percent by Sri Lanka’s government.

This reminds me of the girl in London who was in the news a few months back, after getting her friend to call in a bomb threat to delay the plane she was late for.
Idiots.

The number of times my work collegues and I have joked about doing this so we can go home early…*sigh* this is a reminder that it wouldn’t work anyway.

I have to admit that I did this a couple times in highschool in order to go to concerts that required lots of drive time that I would have to make during school hours to make it at door’s open.

My cousin tried to do this at our school, he made the mistake of leaving his REAL name. Fool.
