Following an article about a security breach at John Wayne Airport delaying flights for an hour, Surf Patch commented on the news.

On January 15, 2013, travel company, Surf Patch, commented on a San Francisco Chronicle article, regarding a security breach delaying flights at John Wayne Airport in California.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle article, “A spokeswoman says a security breach delayed flights and disrupted operations at John Wayne Airport for about an hour on Saturday.”

The article states that a passenger failed to show security officers a proper form of identification at a security screening at John Wayne Airport. According to airport spokeswoman, Jenny Wedge, “the passenger was asked to go through a secondary screening, but did not do so.

That prompted authorities to halt all passenger screenings and operations to conduct a sweep of the airport's three terminals.” The article informed that after an hour the passenger was found, screened again, and then let go, and the airport was then running at regular pace.

Travel Company Surf Patch, commented on the news that led passengers to not be able to flyclear of delays. “This was just an unnecessary problem presented by the passenger that not only gave the security a hard time, but delayed passengers trying to get through security checkpoints,” said world traveler Takara Licausi.
