A bomb threat reported on an American Airlines flight prompted authorities to briefly lock down Terminal A of Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport

Passengers were ordered off an American Airlines flight 1072 Wednesday evening. The plane was moved to an isolated area as a precaution but no bomb has been found.

The flight came in from Austin. An Austin airport spokesman says someone called in a bomb threat on two specific planes. One plane was checked on the ground in Austin and no bomb was found.

The other plane was already on its way to Dallas.

The incident did not cause delays for flights going in or out of DWF.
