Passengers aboard a Pan Am flight to Paris were warned that a caller had claimed a bomb was on the plane, but the airline said the caution did not reflect a policy change since the explosion of a Pan Am plane over Scotland. Aviation officials said they were not aware of a previous instance of an airline warning passengers of a bomb threat. Only 17 of the 200 passengers on the plane chose to take another flight Monday. The flight was about 1 1/2 hours late and arrived in Paris without incident, officials said.
