Part of NY's JFK Airport evacuated after bag found
AP – 27 mins ago

NEW YORK (AP) — Part of New York City's John F. Kennedy Airport has been evacuated due to a suspicious bag.

Steve Coleman of the Port Authority, which runs the airport, says the bag was left in the business class lounge at the American Airlines Terminal 8 around 7:40 a.m. Monday.

Terminal 8 was shut down as a precaution. The rest of the airport is still open.

Next in the news: hundreds of bags unclaimed at LaGuardia, entire baggage claim shutdown “as a precaution.”

It was a bag full of "help wanted" job listings. No one in New York had ever heard the word job, so they figured it must be dangerous.

hundreds of bags unclaimed stolen and infected with homeless people's fecal matter at LaGuardia

I've been to LaGuardia several times, and I thought this was a bit more realistic.

Two hours ago?

Fox News had a live video shot of the exterior maybe 20 minutes ago. Looked like a ghost town.

Link came from eight minutes ago (at the time), thus there were two at the time I went to look. Anything further?

Much more realistic. Isn’t LGA a wonderful place. I usually fly Delta out of there and the crown room is well worth the price there.

I always refuse a bag when offered ... I suggest a 25 year old.

About 25% of them get it.


May I help you?

Yeah, put my grandchildren through college .. OK ?

I lived in CT for over 7 months and had to fly in and out of LGA to go home to Chicago (which has much nicer airports that are out of reach of the homeless people). Ugh it was awful. Every time I was there I thought I was in a Third World country, which is pretty much the same as the rest of NYC.

I’m not so concerned about a lone bag in a lounge. What freaks me out is the fact that there are no security cameras in the area where TSA agents “inspect” luggage. We KNOW they steal items from luggage. If they can do that, they’re free to place things in your luggage and you’d never know it. You could pick up your bag not knowing that drugs are being transported and criminals are following your bag (and you). The no-camera situation is a terrorist’s dream. How frickin’ stupid is the TSA?!

And now, depending on the size of the plane, they even take your larger carry-on bags and stow them in cargo for you to pick up in the jetway upon arrival. So sticking to carry-on isn’t the answer, either. I figure that they’re trying to find a way to justify separating you from your small purse or laptop while in transit.

Israel’s profiling model is the best answer to safety issues.

..and of course my line as you are wrapping up the transaction/meal.

"Is there anything else I can get you?"

"Yes, a winning lottery ticket."

Whats especially nice is watching the muslims out on their prayer rugs behind the taxi stand. always puts you in the right mood for a stinky airport and crowded plane.

“...... The terminal reopened at 9 a.m.

......The black briefcase-type bag apparently had almost nothing in it, Coleman said. The bag’s owner was en route to San Francisco, Coleman said........”
