According to a JetBlue spokesperson, 86 passengers and four crew were on board. The flight was subsequently cleared and allowed to continue on safely to Chicago O’Hare International.

A Joint Terrorism Task Force spokesman in Boston, said the threat was called in by phone and an unidentified passenger on the flight was involved.
