Fly Delta out of AMS? Chew real carefully

No link but I just saw on a real news channel that at least 3 Delta flights to the US that originated in AMS had needles in the sandwiches.

Or just bring your own needle and fly free for a few years.

Just kidding about that last

Do be careful and chew slowly just like Mom told you to.

Here's a USA Today link. The needles were found on 4 flights.

It's on all the networks. That just happened to be the 1st one in line. The FBI is investigating.

Passengers got pizza instead. Now this is more puzzling then the needles. I thought airlines take exactly the right amount of meals with them. Where is that stock of pizza's coming from?

It's all over the Dutch news too. Strange, wonder who is behind it.

ABC News is reporting this tonight....

Authorities noted that two victims were a father and a teenage son who were traveling on separate flights from Amsterdam to the United States. The father was flying to Minneapolis/St. Paul and the son to Atlanta.

The fact that a father on one flight was a victim and his son on a second flight was also apparently a victim is viewed as odd, but right now authorities are leaning towards the prospect that it is a coincidence.

Odd for sure with the father and the son both getting them and on different flights.

But if it was a scam who could be so stupid to do it with both?

And how would they have gotten the needles on those other flights?

I'd say a coincidence.

And since I am always interested in discount flights I wonder what Delta is doing for these customers?
