DALLAS — An FAA emergency was reported Friday afternoon while authorities investigated a possible threat involving a Southwest plane that was later deemed non-credible.
According to Southwest officials, a passenger reported receiving "a threat to a flight via their personal social media account."
Dallas police confirmed authorities interviewed a passenger on the flight and determined that there was no immediate threat.
Southwest officials say the plane was met by local law enforcement as a precaution.
The flight departed from Lubbock earlier in the day and landed "uneventfully" at Dallas Love Field Airport Friday afternoon.
