SAN FRANCISCO -- A passenger on a JetBlue flight that landed at San Francisco International Airport on Saturday was escorted off the plane by police after that person made threatening statements, a spokeswoman for the airline said.

Shortly before 6 p.m., Flight 1136 was en route to SFO from Long Beach when a passenger notified one of the crew members that another passenger had said something he perceived as threatening toward those on board, said spokeswoman Jenny Dervin.

The flight crew then called airport security, who had police meet the plane at its gate when it landed. The passenger, who has not been identified, was escorted off the plane and detained.

A security check of the aircraft proved there was not a security threat, Dervin said, and there was little delay to the following flight out of the gate.

No one was injured, she added.
