PHOENIX (AP) — Southwest Airlines says passengers on a plane diverted to Phoenix because of a bomb threat have been flown to their original destination on another plane.

No bomb was found on the plane diverted to Phoenix on Monday with 143 passengers on board the flight from Los Angeles to Austin, Texas.

Southwest spokeswoman Katie MacDonald says the passengers left Phoenix late Monday night on another plane and arrived in Austin early Tuesday morning.

MacDonald says the plane that was diverted is being returned to service.

Meanwhile, the FBI says its investigation into the call is continuing and that no arrest has been made.
