On November 30, 2012, travel company Surf Patch offered their comments on a News7 article regarding the news of a man getting past airport security with the wrong boarding pass in hand, threatening passengers ability to flyclear of danger.
According to the News7 article, “A boarding pass ends up in the wrong hands. And yet the man holding it, ends up through airport security and onto a plane during the busiest travel week of the year.” The article states that Charles Bailey unknowingly received a boarding pass with a woman’s name on it, and passed through all the mandatory security checkpoints without the wrong name being detected.
According to the article, TSA was notified and later offered this statement, "the security screening process, which assures that any passenger does not pose a threat to the aviation system, contains many layers, both seen and unseen by the public. Every passenger, along with his or her belongings, is thoroughly screened for explosives and prohibited items before being permitted to board an aircraft.” The article mentions that not noticing an odd name on a boarding pass can pose a very dangerous flight risk.
Surf Patch offers comments of disbelief at the recent news, and how it poses a threat to passengers being able to flyclear of danger. “This is unacceptable, and there is nothing TSA could stay in their statement that could forgive such security carelessness,” said world traveler Takara Licausi. “There needs to be some serious changes in TSA’s security or passengers safety will be greatly at risk.”
