I was coming home from the apple store because I had just bought the new imac and I always stop at TPA on my way home, Well i went in for some starbucks and their was a TSA gentleman fixing his coffee with creamer and sugar, and I asked the gentleman if he would let me go through any of the security without a ticket. So her proceeded to say I have headed to airside A, and so we took the tram over, and bang i just followed him and I was in. I did not even have to go through security. this was about 8pm tonight.

The agent should be fired for something like this, completely irresponsible behavior. Alas, the union would be up in arms though. If anything, the employee would be sent to retraining and watch a video in an air conditioned room for an hour.

I wouldn't have you out of my sight if I was that guy. Evidently he let you in because he thought you were not trouble and are not. Hope you enjoyed this one time opportunity. Do you have any pics and hows that new IMAC working?

Highly illegal. Here anybody who smuggles an person airside without a ticket or airside pass will face serious consequences, like an EU-wide ban on working om airports (the information that a person broke airport security rules will be givven to the EASA by the relevant national aviation authority and then distributed to all other EU countries).
For temporary access, you'll need a visitor's day pass, which is only valid when being escorted. The escort has to sign for the respective person. Then you can only get a day pass once a month (exception is with explicite written permission from the aviation authority, while the background check is being processed).
For any other access you'll need to go through the ten year background check, which has to be repeated every year.
Both of them would also most likely face criminal charges.

If this story is true; why would you even post it? Next thing we'll see is an investigation at TPA (somehow I guessing that someone at TSA will get wind of your post), and don't you think if they wanted to the Feds can find out who you are, and come knocking on your door? Dumb.

I am sure that the Hillsborough County Aviation Authority have reviewed the digital video of you allegedly breaching Airside A security (via the SIDA badge access) on Saturday with the aid of the TSA screener. If there was any ounce of legitimacy to your statement, you, the screener, Aviation Security Inspectors, the Federal Security Director, and the Aviation Authority Director would be involved in a full fledged investigation.
I appreciate your diligence in attracting attention.

Well...........I wonder if he's being investigated right now. Perhaps even getting the beating that he's asking for.

Hey believe what you wish...i was taken back, i stayed at the airside for about 30 minutes I was hoping i would get a chance to check out the BA 777, but she already left or was taxiing, i am pretty sure i just missed it.
