Box Cutter Found on SWA Flight

Southwest Airlines

All passengers were ticketed on other flights after being re-screened by security.

A Southwest flight from Houston Hobby to Dallas Love Field had a bit of a scare Monday morning.

A passenger on board Southwest Flight 1636 found a box cutter in an overhead bin and alerted the flight crew.

The captain then requested all 96 passengers and the plane be re-screened by security.

Nothing turned up in either screening.

The flight was eventually canceled and the passengers were all ticketed on other flights.
