Flights halted briefly at SFO over suspicious baggage
SAN FRANCISCO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT -- Outgoing flights by United Airlines at San Francisco International Airport were briefly halted this morning after authorities found a checked bag believed to be suspicious, a Transportation Security Administration spokesman said.
The luggage triggered an alarm and required an inspection by TSA and United representatives at about 8:30 a.m., said TSA spokesman Nico Melendez.
United flights were briefly grounded but were released for takeoff at about 8:50 a.m., according to airport spokesman Doug Yakel.
Authorities are not yet saying what was in the baggage and the incident remains under investigation, Melendez said.
