"Out of an abundance of caution," jet fighters escorted two commercial flights into New York and Detroit on the 10th anniversary of 9/11.
On a Frontier Airlines flight from Denver to Detroit, the airborne security escort was ordered after crew members reported that a couple was spending an unusually long amount of time in the bathroom. After the plane landed safely, the suspicious passengers were detained for questioning and eventually released. The couple reportedly told the authorities that they were just "making-out." This begs the question of why the couple was allowed in the bathroom together in the first place and what is a "usual" amount of time for a pair to spend in an airplane's restroom.
