Teen charged over alleged 'threatening comments' on plane to Sydney

An Air New Zealand flight was cancelled after a Sydney teenager made a false bomb threat on board

Fifita was questioned on board and later charged with providing false information about the safety of an aircraft.

A teenager accused of making a "threatening" comment on an global flight bound for Sydney has been charged following the incident.

A 19-year-old Sydney man remains in custody in New Zealand after he reportedly wrote "I have a bomb" into an in-flight messaging app during a flight. According to the news outlet, the court was told Fifita "immediately" knew an announced security breach was the result of his comment.

"I thought it was amusing", was the explanation Fifita gave for his actions, according to Stuff.

His lawyer, Jane Northwood, says he has pleaded guilty and is utterly remorseful, saying it was a thoughtless, stupid act.

GoFundMe will refund donations for Trump's border wall
The problem is Kolfage had already launched his campaign and GoFundMe forbids changing where donated funds will go. The team also believes it can "complete our segments" of the border wall in half the time.

A reparation sum of $3000 was paid by Fifita's father in Sydney.

Judge Johns said Fifita's actions came at a huge cost to the taxpayer, emergency services and Auckland Airport.

Immigration NZ arranged Fifita's return flight to Australia the very same day.

"Anyone with half a brain would understand that this is not a amusing thing to do, given the times we live in", Judge Anna Johns told the court, Stuff reports.
