Continental Flight Re-Screnned At BNA

Today at BNA at around 6:00 AM, passengers on Continental flight 2175 had to be removed from the plane, and be re-screened. Luggage was also double-checked and also bomb-sniffing dogs were taken aboard the plane. The flight departed 44 minutes late.

The reason everyone had to be re-screened was because a ground handler who works for a third party vendor bypassed a security checkpoint, and began servicing the airplane.

I'm just curious if anyone knows how he could have bypassed security? And how did they know?

Did you even read the story....???????? He went through security... set off the alarm.. was told to take off his belt and boots. He told them he did not have the time, grabbed his bag and left the check point. It goes without saying he'll be looking for a new job.

Whats odd here, is many airport ground ops don't have to go through security to get to the secured area. I am not talking about a maintance guy with a company truck, rather a baggage handler who can easily go from ticket counter, punch in a code to a secured door and get to the tarmac without being screened.

What I find even stranger, is that we, as ramp agents go through the same security background checks as Thousands Standing Around, and yet they are allowed to bypass security and take anything they so desire around the metal detectors and into the secured area..

...But thats a topic for another post.

Not to pile on but flight crews every day are subjected to the security lines all the while cleaners can bypass. Who is going to spend the time at altitude and has a vested interest in nothing illicit being on board?

Well not to be rude, but their are a bunch of stories out there, and I'm sure I didn't check every single one of them. I read 3 news stories, all of them which said he bypassed security, which to me seems he just went around or simply skipped past. Nothing was said in what I read about what you said.

When did they start making the ramp crew go through security? When I worked there (on the Delta side for DGS, which is no more) you had to go through security if you were there to fly, but if you were in uniform with your SIDA badge and there for work you went around. (I won't say anything about access points.)
