A BESOTTED man made a fake bomb threat in the hope of getting an air stewardess to go on a date with him.
The 65-year-old Serbian – who has not been named – sparked mass panic by phoning in the hoax before a flight from Belgrade to Frankfurt, Germany.

It led to the evacuation of all 130 passengers and five crew from flight LH 1411 due to take off at 6:15am local time on Thursday.
He told a court in the Serbian capital on Saturday that he had met two flight attendants and invited them for dinner but they refused.
The passenger especially liked one of the stewardesses – and even tried to find her hotel room.
But after failing to locate her he made one last desperate attempt to keep her from leaving the country by phoning in the bomb threat.
After the evacuation, the Airbus A320 plane was removed from the runway so a special police squad could search it.
Police later said no bomb was found and the plane eventually took off after an eight-hour delay.
Officers traced the call and the man was arrested a day later.
Prosecutors have asked the court to keep the man in custody pending charges of causing panic and disorder.
On Thursday, Serbia’s interior ministry released a statement about the bomb threat.
