SAN FRANCISCO/FRANKFURT - A Lufthansa flight headed to Germany from Texas was diverted to a New York City airport on Monday, following a bomb threat called in to the airline's headquarters, officials said.

Flight 441 destined for Frankfurt from Houston landed safely and was taken to a remote area of John F. Kennedy International Airport around 8:30 p.m., said Steve Coleman, a spokesman of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

All passengers had left the airplane and were put up at hotels, while authorities searched the plane, a Lufthansa spokesman said on Tuesday morning in Germany.
