What leads a 47-year-old woman, professional, with a stable job almost half a life in a state company, to take her daughter's cell phone, record an intimidating message with a distorted voice and send it to several of her co-workers that will lose a million dollars to their bosses? Why would anyone dynamite everything with a couple of audios of a few seconds? These questions will surely be asked to Daniela Carbone, the Aerolineas Argentinas stewardess who was arrested on Sunday, accused of being the author of the bomb threat against a plane that was due to leave for Miami a week ago and that had to be postponed for obvious security reasons.
It may be a commonplace that saying that is attributed to Blaise Pascal, philosopher and mathematician of the seventeenth century: "The heart has reasons that reason does not know." But the plot that is investigated in Justice and that led to Carbone travels the path of a frustrated relationship and a heartbreak more explosive than the bombs promised by WhatsApp.
On May 21, the flight attendant who has worked for Aerolineas Argentinas since at least 2007 – although her career is supposed to go back 25 years – decided to blow up her story. The flight "AR1304 Ezeiza-Miami" was carrying 270 passengers and 12 crew and was scheduled to depart at 7.35 in the morning. But on the phone of the pilot and some "ground employees" of the flag carrier controlled by La Cámpora, an audio arrived: "Tell the captain that we put three bombs in the Miami [sic]. Stop fucking with politics and check the plane because they're going to blow up in a thousand pieces."
The audio that led to an expected bomb busting operation at the Ezeiza airport and the rescheduling of the flight, at a cost of one million dollars for the state airline, reached the cell phone of the pilot who was about to take off, but also to a cashier in charge of selling tickets and even another employee who that day was on duty. And although the message spoke of the "captain", it was addressed to another crew member whose phone did not ring.

It is that on the plane was a cabin attendant who would take advantage of the destination of Miami, perhaps, to live a new love. The flight attendant had terminated a five-year relationship two months ago and that one month ago had cut off all dialogue. The investigators found that ex: Daniela Carbone, the commissioner on board. And they reconstructed that the false threats – with a distorted voice through the use of a website, The Voice Changer, specialized in these effects – came from a prepaid cell phone of the adult daughter of the stewardess.
Not only that. Before arresting Carbone this Sunday, in Ezeiza, when he returned from a flight, Justice seized an Iphone 13 Pro and another 12 Pro at his home, which had been used with the identified line from where the threats came. In one of them, they found some searches in Apple's Safari browser, made on Sunday 21. "How to investigate an audio", "you can analyze an audio to know the voice of who it is", "activate voice recognition", "Aerolineas Argentinas" and "SAME Province", among the queries.
Justice suspects that Daniela Carbone used her daughter's phone to send audios with bomb threats to her colleagues at Aerolineas Argentinas.
"She was more hurt," the crew member reportedly said when investigators asked him about the end of the link, as Clarín was able to reconstruct.
However, they say that the man maintained the obvious doubts that she could be the author of the messages, since she was still working in the company. But Carbone was arrested in Ezeiza, by the Airport Security Police and at the request of federal judge Federico Villena who acts in the case in which the stewardess will face charges of "public intimidation" and "obstruction of public services", in addition to "aggravated coercion".
It is that in addition to the criminal consequences, Aerolineas Argentinas has already slipped that they analyze sanctioning the stewardess with a measure "proportional to the seriousness of the fact." That "fact", which cost the state company a million dollars. It is presumed that after a quarter of a century, the woman could stop flying.
Carbone presents himself as "commissioner of board in Aerolineas Argentinas" in his outdated social networks. Blonde, showy and flirtatious in tune with her profession, her relatives do not believe her 47 years of age. Capricorn, born on New Year's Eve, in the last two years would have made financial decisions not predictable for those who delimit the signs: she would accumulate debts of those considered uncollectible by the banks, with a fortnight of cooperatives and credit companies that would walk with intentions to make him pay.

In addition to the 21-year-old daughter who would have used the phone to prevent a flight of his ex, Carbone says mother of Mora, "a dog", and Blanca, "a cat". And it even sketches a dream for the future, far from the trays, the narrow corridors and the pasta or chicken of the flight menus. "Future paramedic", is decreed the stewardess who, from the placidity of her house in a private neighborhood with exclusive golf club of Garín, generated chaos at the international airport that she stepped on so many times.
Like this Sunday, when I was returning to the country. He had gone to work on Thursday, May 25, on flight AR 1302. Coincidences: the destination of that stretch was again Miami, the city that would harbor intolerable suspicions of a new love for that crew member with whom he shared years, between flights, union struggles for jobs and the "Let's defend Austral and Airlines" as a slogan, perhaps River matches and rock nights, with the sound of the bass he knew how to play. A whole past that two months ago resisted being turned into flesh.
The arrest of Daniela Carbone, the flight attendant of Aerolineas Argentinas

Daniela Carbone was arrested this Sunday at the international airport of Ezeiza by the Anti-Terrorist Operational Unit and Control of Activities that attempt against the Public Powers and the Constitutional Order of the Airport Security Police. He must testify this Tuesday, as an inquiry, before federal judge Villena, who has the case under summary secrecy.
It transpired among his peers that, when the bomb threat to flight AR 1304 of the Airbus A330 plane of the state airline became news, Carbone would have written in chat groups that he shares with his colleagues: "But what happened? You know?".

"In true love there is no heartbreak. A broken heart means broken demands, broken expectations, broken hopes." The phrase belongs to Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, leader of The Art of Living and guru of breathing methods in self-help key that were all the rage in the middle of this decade. Daniela Carbone shared that quote on her social networks in 2015. The flight attendant seemed to have forgottenthe phrase that morning at Ezeiza airport.
