Delta Air Lines said Thursday it is intensifying security after receiving a general threat against its trans-Atlantic operations.
Delta spokesman Jim Lundy said the threat did not name a particular flight, city or day. He would not say when the threat was received or discuss the nature of the threat.Delta's trans-Atlantic operations include flights to and from Germany, Ireland, England and France. Lundy said passengers were being notified of the threat upon check-in and were allowed to cancel or delay their trips.
At Piedmont Triad International Airport, Delta agents said that they were offering refunds to people connecting with its international flights but that no one had accepted the offer.
