Flight AF1741 from Amsterdam to Paris was grounded after a social media user made an ominous threat of an attack similar to the Sinai air disaster.
That attack left 224 people dead – and like the terror attacks in France were carried out by Islamic State (ISIS).
The Air France plane was grounded at Schiphol Airport after a tweet was posted which said: “Forget #Russia? Wait for what will happen on flight AF1741 from #Amsterdam to #Paris..#ParisAttacks”.
Another tweet said: “Yesterday Paris and now @BrusselsAirport and @Schiphol will be attacked soon by our brothers. #ParisAttacks #isis”.
