Bomb threat on Canadian-bound flight....

I'd like to know more about this threat...
Canadian fighter jets were scrambled to escort a Cathay Pacific airplane en route from Hong Kong to a safe landing at Vancouver International Airport on Saturday after a bomb threat on board the aircraft.

Police searched the aircraft and luggage after the flight landed at Vancouver International Airport, but found no suggestion of explosives, according to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. They would not release details of the threat but Canadian media reported that it was made by phone.

Television images showed the plane on an isolated stretch of tarmac where it was towed after landing, before passengers were allowed to disembark. No arrests have been made.

Two Canadian CF-18 Hornets were scrambled from a military base on nearby Vancouver Island to escort Cathay Pacific flight CX838 in response to the threat, and flew alongside it until it landed around 1:40 p.m. local time (2040 GMT).
