An airport official says a man "made a comment about a bomb" on a flight from Chicago to New York's MacArthur Airport, forcing passengers to get off the plane while authorities inspected the aircraft.

No devices were found. The man was taken into custody after the Sunday afternoon incident on Southwest Airlines Flight 373, a Boeing 737 carrying 137 passengers and five crew members.

MacArthur Airport Commissioner Teresa Rizzuto says charges are still pending.

Southwest Airlines spokeswoman Olga Romero says the suspect made the comment to a flight attendant while deplaning.

The flight was delayed about two hours while police inspected the aircraft.

The flight was making a scheduled stop at the Long Island airport before leaving for West Palm Beach, Fla., at about 5 p.m.
