    A packed holiday jet flew across the Atlantic despite a passenger finding a note claiming there was a bomb on board. The terrified holidaymaker found the hand-written note in a toilet only 20 minutes into the flight from the Dominican Republic to Newcastle International Airport. He immediately alerted a stewardess and, when two more notes were discovered, the pilot left the cockpit to see for himself. He decided the notes were a hoax and decided to continue with the scheduled flight rather than divert to the nearest airport.
