Posted on 07/17/2012 6:06:30 AM PDT by Perdogg
One of the airline passengers who bit into a sandwich containing a one-inch needle earlier this week has now been put on antiretroviral drugs used for the treatment of HIV, and says the FBI is investigating the incidents aboard four Delta Air Lines flights as a criminal case.
James Tonges said he was placed on the drug Truvada, which has recently been approved by the FDA, following the incident aboard a Delta flight from Amsterdam to Minneapolis-St. Paul. Half a dozen sewing needles have now been found in sandwiches on four separate Delta flights, and Tonges, who was sitting in his flight's business elite cabin, was unfortunate to have bitten into one of them.

LOL... I just read that back after posting and that didn’t come out quite right. My father isn’t gay! hee hee... I was trying to point out that there are some real hate-filled gay boys flying around in the skies. I’ve worked with them. Angry, bitter, malicious, immature things they can be. That can be said about some of the straight ones, too, but percentage-wise, I’d have to say the gays have a lock on nastiness.
I thought AIDS didn’t live in the air very long?
This is just an incident that the public has heard about because these guys are suing. There’s lots of stuff going on out there that no one hears about.
Every time I think the human race can’t go any lower, something happens to prove me wrong.
From my recollection, sewing needles are a bit longer than one inch.
So sandwiches don’t have to go through the screening and strip search - feel the meat - process?
The flight originated out of Amsterdam, so unless it was an ex-pat American or someone on a temporary visa or whatever they use over there, it was probably someone local, or at least European.
You might want to cool it on your sandwich fetish for awhile. Although, I doubt they serve your favorite ‘snake’ - more into needles.
There was an orthopedic surgeon on the same flight who found a needle.
air marshall found one , too.
But if the sandwich maker quits halfway through.. the needles would likely be omitted.
She would just get the ingredients out and then walk away.
I don’t know if you are old enough to remember the original Extra Strength Tylenol Capsule cyanide poisioning tampering case. The real story was a woman wanted to kill her husband and put cyanide in his tylenol capsules. Then she tampered with several other bottles at different stores to make it look like a random tampering case. Some innocent people were killed taking these pills.
This is the second attack on Delta this week. The first was when the snipped wires were found by air marshalls in the restroom while the plane was at JFK just before a NY-Madrid flight, fortunately because somebody had been watching a Pakistani who went in and out of the bathroom.
This is obviously their next attack. Delta hasn’t been used as a target for attacks before, partly because it’s a very good, non-union airline that hires mostly Americans or American-friendly people, and partly because it wasn’t perceived as being representative of the US, but as a Southern regional carrier. However, now that it’s been expanding and may become our largest carrier, it’s going to be exposed to a lot more jihadi attacks, whether major and disastrous ones such as bombs, or minor and annoying but costly ones such as needles in the food.
This was a jihadi attack.
Remember all the reports of box cutters that were found in seat back pockets post 9-11? Passengers didn’t put them there.
And yes, there are employees who are pi$$ed off unionistas, looking to stick it to someone, anyone.
What happened to that bitch?
This is the case I remember. It was a copycat of the Tylenol poisonings, involving Excedrin pills. She was found guilty and sentenced to 99 years, eligible for parole in 2018
