When he arrived at Miami on United Flight 868, he retrieved his checked bag, passed through an Argenbright-operated pre-departure screening checkpoint and carried it aboard United Flight 1259 to O'Hare, authorities said./b>
My question is about the other incident.
Meanwhile, a security guard at Boston's Logan International Airport who left her checkpoint area unattended for several minutes caused hundreds of Delta Airlines passengers to be forced out of a gate area to be rescreened.
I'm trying to figure this one out. It doesn't sound like the area she was supposed to be guarding was the actual screening checkpoint itself, where passengers enter a sterile concourse, but rather an area where passengers exit the sterile concourse on their way to baggage claim.
But aren't the areas usually side by side?If it was the area where passengers exit, then it seems like that is an area the National Guard could have watched over. It's not like they would be x-raying bags or anything. They would just have to stand there and prevent people from entering the concourse and direct them over to the screening checkpoint.
