COLOMBO, Sri Lanka - A SriLankan Airlines stewardess called in a bomb threat because she wanted a day off, a newspaper reported Sunday.
Investigators traced the call and found that it was made from a mobile phone belonging to the stewardess' boyfriend, Colombo's Sunday Times weekly reported.
"The inquiry reveals that the stewardess had given the false alarm because she did not want to fly that day," it said.
The stewardess was fired, it reported.
SriLankan Airlines spokeswoman Ruvini Jayasinghe declined to either confirm or deny the report and referred the call to senior officials, who were not immediately reachable.
