Cops with sniffer dogs swooped on the OS463 flight from Vienna to Manchester and told Austrian Airlines to cancel Thursday’s trip so more checks could be made.
One passenger said: “We sat down when all of a sudden there was a big fuss.” Everyone was individually swabbed for explosives in a process that took four hours.
Nothing was found. Austrian Airlines apologised to passengers who were affected but added: “We will never compromise on safety.”
