PHOENIX — Southwest Airlines said passengers on a plane diverted to
Phoenix because of a bomb threat have been flown to their original destination
on another plane.

No bomb was found on the plane diverted to Phoenix on Monday with 143
passengers on board the flight from Los Angeles to Austin, Texas.

Southwest spokeswoman Katie MacDonald said the passengers left Phoenix late
Monday night on another plane and arrived in Austin early Tuesday morning.

MacDonald said the plane that was diverted is being returned to service.

Meanwhile, the FBI said its investigation into the call is continuing and that
no arrest has been made.

A passenger posted video after the evacuation.
