Egyptair flight MS778 from LHR (London, UK) to CAI (Cairo, Egypt) diverted to Athens yesterday due to a bomb threat that was received. The plane landed at 20:40L in Athens where it was inspected by the bomb squad. Since no signs of explosive devices were found, the plane was cleared to continue to Cairo but since it was already late in the night the flight was scheduled for today. The plane, a Boeing 777-300 registered SU-GDN, departed at 13:20L from runway 03R.
