2 Air France Flights Diverted After Bomb Threats



LOS ANGELES, Nov 17 (Reuters) - Two Air France flights en route to Paris from the United States were diverted on Tuesday because of security issues, the Federal Aviation Administration said.

Air France Flight 65 departed from Los Angeles landed in Salt Lake City, where passengers and crew were being deplaned and transferred to the terminal, an FAA spokesman said.

A separate flight, Air France Flight 55 that left Dulles International Airport outside Washington was diverted to Halifax International Airport in Nova Scotia also because of an unspecified security concern, the FAA said.

Air France Flight 55 from Washington Dulles had 234 people aboard, and Flight 65 from Los Angeles had 473 aboard.

Flight 55 was a Boeing 777
Flight 65 was an Airbus 380
