Flight Attendant in Training Made Bomb Threats Against Another Airline
A man who was training to be an American Airlines flight attendant pleaded guilty last week to making bomb threats against United Airlines.
According to Patrick Cau’s criminal indictment, he threatened six flights, all of which were between London and Los Angeles. The threats were made from October 2012 to January 2013.
On August 21, American Airlines said Cau (who is also known as Patrick Kaiser) was fired after one of his aliases was included on a no-fly list. It was also revealed that Cau started his training in April before he was let go in May.
The defendant’s felony charge may result in up to five years in prison and a fine that could exceed $250,000. United Airlines said it suffered $267,912 in lost revenue because flights had to be canceled or delayed after the threats were made.
