SAN ANTONIO -- Passengers on board a Southwest Airlines flight were hustled off the Boeing 737 Monday evening after a non-specific threat was reported to the Transportation Security Administration, according to San Antonio Airport officials.
Video from Chopper 5 in HD showed passengers waiting outside the aircraft and rows of luggage behind the plane.
The flight, which originated from Baltimore, was later cleared of any threat, and passengers reboarded for a flight to Dallas.
On August 1, there was a bomb threat that caused the evacuation of 2,000 people at the S.A. International Airport.
"It's just different," said Rich Johnson, spokesman for S.A.I.A. "Every situation is different. We have procedures in place for various scenarios."
"That one was complicated," he added. "Because K-9 units actually picked up on something," Johnson said of the August 1 scare.
But Monday night's episode had a much quicker turn-around because it was in an isolated area.
"Only 100 passengers versus 2,000 people," he said.
But nonetheless it was an inconvenience in both cases to travelers.
"Adding this kind of stress into anybody's travel is always unpleasant. Luckily we weren't dealing with heat and temperatures because it was in the evening."
