ALERT American Airlines #AA534 to Phoenix diverted to Lambert due to bomb alert

Bomb-sniffing dogs checked an American Airlines plane Thursday morning that was diverted to Lambert Airport in St. Louis.

Lambert Airport spokesman Jeff Lea said Flight 534 left Columbus, Ohio, and was heading for Phoenix. It landed in St. Louis around 8:10 a.m.

American Airlines said in an emailed statement that it requested the security check “out of an abundance of caution.”

Angie Tabor, spokeswoman for John Glenn International Airport in Columbus, says the FBI is investigating.

The 113 passengers and five crew were taken by bus to the terminal.
