It is unknown at this time who reported the bomb threat. The call came in around 7:30 a.m.
United Airlines flight #869 was scheduled to depart from Denver at 8:10 a.m. and land in San Francisco. DIS decided to delay the flight and search the plane, cargo and passengers. The original plane was cleared and no devices were found in the cargo hold.
According to Jenny Schiavone with DIA, there were no passengers on the aircraft at the time of the threat, so no evacuations took place. The B concourse remained under normal conditions during the bomb investigation. The airport did not evacuate either.
United rescheduled all the passengers of flight #869.
