NEW YORK (REUTERS) - A Lufthansa flight headed to Germany from Texas was diverted to a New York City airport after a threat was called in, ABC News reported on Monday night (Dec 12).

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey told the news outlet that flight 441 to Frankfurt from Houston was taken to a remote area of John F. Kennedy International Airport and was set to be searched.
