A bomb threat was tweeted to Jet Blue while the targeted flight was in the air Friday night.

@JetBlue there’s a bomb on flight JBU1007 to Daugherty field, I’m gonna detonate it soon, watch out ;)

This was after Jet Blue offered to fly police officers for free to Officer Rafael Ramos’s funeral in New York City.

Flight Aware tracking shows the flight landed without incident at Long Beach Daugherty Field at 8:03 p.m. PST after departing Seattle Tacoma at 6:12 p.m. The bomb threat was tweeted at 7:25 p.m. PST.

Jet Blue responded on Twitter at 7:40 p.m. PST:

“@Swattingsquad Please be aware that we take all threats very seriously. This has been reported to our internal security team.”

The person calling themselves @Swattingsquad responded “come@me” and offered to DM their address to Jet Blue to facilitate their arrest.

** Twitter later deleted this person’s account.

Jet Blue has received grief from leftists upset the airline offered free air travel to police officers attending the funerals of two executed New York City police officers who were killed as an act of vengeance for the deaths of the two black men resisting arrest.

UPDATE: A passenger reported Jet Blue flights were delayed at Long Beach as the bomb threat was investigated. A reporter tweeted the FBI shut down the airport for an hour.
