SNIPPET: "A Sun Express Boeing 737-800, registration TC-SUO performing flight XQ-973 from Stuttgart (Germany) to Izmir (Turkey) with 62 passengers and 6 crew, was enroute overhead Skopje (Macedonia), when a crew member found a note in one of the lavatories saying "Today we will die, boom"."
SNIPPET: "Greek police detained a man carrying a marker pen of the same color as the note written on the lavatory's mirror, but later permitted him to continue the journey.
After the airplane arrived in Izmir, Turkish police detained the man again and interviewed him. The man was released without charges after the interview."

Bump. could have been left from a previous flight. Hopefully, it is nothing.

It was a hoax, but — article snippet: “Greek police detained a man carrying a marker pen of the same color as the note written on the lavatory’s mirror...”

Of course, if it was a black marker...almost any businessman worth his salt could be carrying that in his briefcase (just a thought).

A pilot from Sun Express gave me one of their small enamel badges ... I wear it on my flight jacket .... the pilot was an FO on a B737 ....

Wouldn't put it past the Islamoscum to try and create an incident in or near Thessalonica a very significant place for Christians, as anyone familiar with the New Testament knows.
Truth be told, I've always held a special affection for the Greeks. As the Byzantine Empire, they were the bulwark that kept the horde of Mad Moozie death-cult thugs out of Europe's heartland for 800 years just long enough for the West to grow strong enough to defend itself.
Heck, I'd love to see the Greeks go in and take Constantinople back! It belongs to them. "Istanbul" is a term I never use.

Let’s hope so.
I don’t know what evidence (if any) they collected.
