American Airlines has diverted a flight carrying Sony Online Entertainment president John Smedley after receiving a bomb threat from the group claiming responsibility for today's PlayStation Network outage.
Smedley confirmed his San Diego-bound flight was diverted to Phoenix, Arizona, adding the decision had something to do with security and the plane's cargo. Earlier in the afternoon, the supposed hackers sent messages to American Airlines, asserting the plane had "explosives on-board."
