Unticketed Pax Clears TSA, Boards DL Flight

Sun Oct 06, 2019 4:14 pm

When you think about all the hurdles she needed to clear to get on the plane, it's a shocking failure of the system. I would be interested if they did a followup to see how she did it. It appears from the story she had no boarding pass, nor used someone else's boarding pass.

Ignoring the TSA part, its possible that the gate agent turned around to look at something else and the woman was able to slip through the jetway door and onto the plane. Other than that, there are much bigger failures, but it has certainly happened before.

Well the article says she did not go thru TSA. So she could have sneaked in behind someone else going thru a door into the secure area.

After reading the article I think you are correct. If this person did gain access or piggy back through a door it means an employee (not necessarily a DL employee) with a SIDA badge was not paying attention when they went through the door to make sure the door closed and locked after they accessed the secure area of the airport.

And usually if someone does walk by the ticket checker luckily another TSA agent notices that the person wasn’t checked, so a supervisor is involved. I’m surprised it doesn’t happen more often as I had few close calls but always caught the person. Usually it’s someone who hasn’t flown before or an international tourist.

Some SIDA badges about to get revoked at the ATL. I mean, If it is piggy backing onto the jet bridge how was the agent not paying attention to her door?

I have been to ATL, unless the passenger was familiar with the insides of the airport, it is almost impossible she could have sneaked through an employee portal and made her way to an aircraft without SIDA access.

We all have to be on guard to a piggy. I stopped someone once, he said “don’t you know who I am?”. I still didn’t let him through. He was pissed (and a veep), but you have to show your credentials.

I would have hoped that security-minded fellow pax might have said something in such a scenario. Remember, we should all still be eyes & ears when someone who needs to know doesn't notice something that is "off".

I was on this flight and the woman in question was seated in the row directly behind me. We were on an A321 (N372DN). I think she slipped past the gate agent while she was distracted by something else. I'm pretty sure it was during pre-boarding and she was one of the first people to get on the plane. We were told by the captain while holding on the tarmac that TSA was scanning video footage to see if she passed through security screening and if they couldn't find her that we would have to return to a gate and de-plane so that they could complete a security sweep of the aircraft. Since we had to return and de-plane my assumption was that they could not find video of her going through security screening. Now the TSA is saying she went through security so IDK if they were able to find her after more thorough review of the video footage or if TSA is changing their story to cover their butts...

It would take too much time for me to recount the whole story in detail but I'm happy to answer any questions about the encounter as I had a front row seat for the entire interaction on the plane.

Can you describe the woman? What was her demeanor? Did she seem mentally intact? Did she appear intoxicated?

Delta employees will get spanked. TSA employees will claim it was a test and fine Delta for poor security.

Not surprised about the getting on a plane with out a ticket part. I had someone do that on a flight I was on earlier this year. Ticket agent swiped the ticket (it actually was for his next leg) and still waved him thru after it made the not good beep noise. His ticket had a row that didn’t exist on the plane we were on. So once I pointed out he didn’t have the right ticket to him he got off the plane.

Anyway, I am curious to see how she got thru secure. Hopefully we find out.

:checkmark: :checkmark: :checkmark: :checkmark: :checkmark: This is a case where failure is not an option. Absolutely stunning considering the flyer and taxpayer expense to bulk up security after Sept 11th and things like this can still happen. They nickle and dime us in the fees tacked on. Hope they refunded all those fees to everyone on the flight in question...Yeah right.

I guess its good news at least that news of it made the light of day :white: :x

It should be like a Windows security fix - make the fix, then you can tell everyone what was the problem. In other words - the information can eventually be released how she passed security, but no one else should be able to do the same.

Nothing surprises me anymore. At MSP I went through TSA Pre in the south end and went to the north end security to wait for my dad. As I am waiting I see some guy walk up the stairs from the baggage claim area with his bags. Im like wtf? I look down there and there is a TSA agent. But afaik once you go out, the only way back in is through the TSA security checkpoint.

I think what you saw was a crew member, perhaps not in uniform, going through the Known Crewmember checkpoint.

Doesn't this happen quite frequently, albeit with varying details? How many times do we hear about somebody who got on the wrong flight or was on the wrong plane? I've personally boarded a flight and seen somebody at my seat who was on the wrong plane (probably the next scheduled flight from the gate) and another time encountered a passenger who was supposed to be on a later flight (to the same destination.) In both cases, I assumed the airline screwed up by letting them board, although I don't know how the boarding gate scanner didn't alert the agent of the error.

In all the cases I've seen though, the passengers on the wrong plane were ticketed and screened, so that is a big difference. I'm not sure what happened at MCO. If this woman evaded security and made it on to the plane, that means there were multiple breakdowns and that's kind of scary.

Is it possible she was on-board from the previous flight? Hiding in the lav until the new flight starts boarding doesn't sound very feasible but it's not out of the question.

Being familiar with the Security Check Point she would have gone through to get over to AS4 where DL is, it is not easy to get by TSA at that Check Point but given the recent turmoil and extremely poor moral thanks to TSA management in MCO not surprised this person got by. In fact, I am surprised there haven't been other security breaches (or maybe just haven't seen them reported). As for this person possibly "piggybacking" to get to AS4, that is not possible (but I guess nothing is impossible) given that everyone must go through security screening to get to the Airsides (all bagged workers and ticketed passengers).

I doubt it. From the video it looks like the person being escorted out of the plane was a middle-aged African American female.

Hartman is an elderly Caucasian female (who actually somewhat resembles the legendary Ada Quonsett).

It’s pretty incredible that it took about 45 minutes to get that Delta stowaway off of the aircraft.

If she got through without a boarding pass, but was screened appropriately, this is a big nothingburger. If she got through without being screened, then this is a serious issue. As for being able to get on the plane without a boarding pass, that is a Delta issue and only a Delta issue.

Maybe the woman was removed, the plane left the gate, then was summoned to return to the gate?

News reports seem to concur that she has not been charged - not even something easy like trespassing. Maybe people from Orlando can comment whether this lady is from high political or moneyed interests in the area to get this kind of white glove treatment from law enforcement??

News reports seem to concur that she has not been charged - not even something easy like trespassing. Maybe people from Orlando can comment whether this lady is from high political or moneyed interests in the area to get this kind of white glove treatment from law enforcement??

Have you seen her picture? She was basically walking around in her pyjama, very unlikely to have special connections to get this treatment.

I'm from Orlando....Yes she is very high up there in the political homeless ranks. Her pajamas were free too which has the mayor of Orlando in hot water as well..

Ask a ridiculous question ..get a ridiculous answer.

This seems to be the norm for passengers who are removed at the gate vs those who cause a disruption in the air. Nevermind she snuck past TSA and a gate agent, let’s just let her enjoy the rest of her afternoon and let her go. I don’t understand why these idiots don’t get arrested. Is it just too costly for the TSA and/or the airlines to pursue?
