    Bomb Threat Diverts SFO to Germany Flight
    The flight from SFO to Germany had an unexpected landing in Chicago.

     A United Airlines flight from San Francisco to Frankfurt, Germany, was diverted to Chicago after a threat was found in a bathroom.

    United spokesman Charles Hobart said in an email that Flight 926 landed at O'Hare International Airport about 1 a.m. Sunday. The flight was searched, cleared and allowed to continue on to Germany.

     Hobart says a crew member found a sticker with a threatening message in a bathroom and the plane was diverted "in an abundance of caution.''
