TSA Investigating Woman Who Boarded American Airlines Flight From Nashville to Los Angeles Without Ticket

Submitted
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is investigating how a woman passed a security checkpoint and boarded a flight at Nashville International Airport (BNA) without a ticket or boarding pass. This incident is the third time in two months that a passenger flew between two destinations without any form of identification. (aeroxplorer.com) More...

If you believe government agencies will enforce upon a business or another agency then I have some bonds to sell you. We all know TSA, FAA exist to police the commoner/ small biz/little man/ citizen. To enforce upon business or agency will hurt the economy. I mean look at the poisons in US food they don't even allow in the EU. The FAA certified the MAX but what does that mean when a plane has an AD to check already existing models for improper assembly? Not to mention the design flaws that were hidden until people died.

My point is, no one to watch TSA and if there was someone to watch TSA wouldn't make much of a difference except for a higher budget.

She has performed a valuable service to the flying public’s by revealing security short falls that could prevent a terrorist from sneaking on to a flight.

Getting past security is 10x worse security fail. She could have snuck thru with weapons, bombs etc and then handed them off to a ticketed passenger who could have gotten on the plane.

Report says she WAS screened. It's not good she got past the ID/ticket bit, though.

It literally says she snuck through a closed security lane. Read the attached article FFS
conradp99
conradp99 1
I did; did YOU stop reading after the first 3 sentences? She ducked past JUST the ID check, but WAS screened for the weapons etc you are fretting about: "After arriving at BNA on February 7, the woman managed to pass through the first layer of airport security without getting caught. She found an area in an unoccupied security lane and passed through when no one was watching. This move allowed her to avoid showing identification since officials at manned security lanes check a passenger's ID and boarding pass before letting them through.
***She later returned to another security line after passing through the first layer, where her luggage was screened, and she went through a security scanner.***

And a bit farther down: "TSA is reviewing the circumstances of this matter, but can confirm that the traveler in question was physically screened, along with their carry-on items, without incident at the Nashville International Airport security checkpoint on February 7th before boarding the flight. TSA and its airline partners are cooperating with the ongoing law enforcement investigation."

One night while I was on duty at RAF Mildenhall we had a reservist Captain on his two week "summer camp". It was Friday night, he dutied off and I just assumed he went back to billeting. About 45 minutes later I get a call asking if I know this person. I said he dutied off. The person was one of our pax service guys at our operating location in Prestwick. Dude just walked across the flight line, boarded a Navy C9, blended in with the rest of the Space A pax. We had a good laugh. He got in trouble. They made him take a train back to Mildenhall and he was confined to quarters the rest of his TDY.

Not sure if you’re serious, but the population of unauthorized immigrants has remained roughly constant over the years. Most of these folks are individual adults and do low-paid jobs that Americans don’t want to do. A classic example was when Florida even couldn’t get prisoners to harvest oranges when they made it more difficult to hire immigrant labor and ended up with a lot of spoilage.

What is “military-aged” supposed to mean? Younger folks are more likely to be immigrants because older folks tend to take less risk. “Military-aged” people go to college. “Military-aged” people are early in their careers.

What alarms me is the lack of reasonable discourse and nuance when discussing many topics these days because it’s easier to get people angry than it is to convince them with logic.

But since we’re on an aviation board, also alarmed that a Boeing aircraft I fly is going to have some not-yet-remediated safety defect.

How is that not economics? Cheap labor means higher margins, and if there is little margin to start, then it’s only option you have.

Sorry, it's just the laws of supply and demand. An influx of unskilled labor competition lowers wages for everyone in the unskilled labor pool in the short term. So, because of that article, you now believe that Florida fruit will not be picked and the Floria fruit economy will disappear?

It's a talking point, and yes, journalists sometimes publish talking points.
billatq
billatq 2
"You now believe that Florida fruit will not be picked and the Flori[d]a fruit economy will disappear"

I don't, but I do believe that it will raise the cost of harvesting said fruit because then you need improved automation or higher wages.

That said, Florida has had other headwinds to their fruit economy, including hurricanes and disease, and orange juice prices hit an all time high in the US during October of last year.

"…the lack of reasonable discourse and nuance when discussing many topics…"

You can't be reasonable when you don't UNDERSTAND the subject, particularly complex subjects. The internet has put information at everyone's fingertips, for almost every subject, but knowing a set of facts about a subject doesn't bestow an understanding of it subject; that requires a proper education in the subject as well as in the variety of ancillary subjects that underpin it and give it its complexity. Lacking that education, people resort to using common sense to do analyses, critical evaluations and debate, which are very likely to be comprised of what I call "plausible nonsense." Common sense is fairly universal and easy to understand, and what is easy to understand is easy to perceive as plausible and not easily recognized as invalid or nonsensical, in fact it is likely to be accepted as the truth. Thus the plausibility masks the nonsense, giving validation to the adage: Little knowledge is a dangerous thing.

Alternatively, the lay public (Congress included, apparently) may depend on the news media for the analyses, evaluations, etc., not recognizing that news reporters may be just as incompetent in that field, which makes them unable to properly vet their sources and the information they provide, and tempts them to resort to common sense too, not just to understand the subject, but also to simplify it for comprehension by the lay public. So what is published as "news" is also plausible nonsense and the public is misinformed anyway.

Your alarm that a Boeing aircraft you fly "is going to have some not-yet-remediated safety defect" seems to suffer from the same lack of reasonable discourse and nuance that you lamented—but it is understandable. If you had the requisite education, you would be able to do your own analyses of the data and validly conclude that almost all of the popular notions published in the media that blamed Boeing for the MAX crashes were false and that there was nothing wrong with the MAX's design. It would also enable you to see how prejudiced minds are so easily led astray.
billatq
billatq 2
I agree with your points that information doesn’t equal understanding and I find that many news reports lack nuance that really requires reading primary sources. This is particularly true in court cases and for technical reports.

That’s part of why I find your comment that Boeing did nothing wrong to be inconsistent with the facts as raised by the NTSB and FAA reports I’ve read related to the MCAS-related crashes.

Even if you accept the claim that a pilot could have run through an existing checklist to recover from the issue, having watched videos of competent pilots try to recover from
it in a simulator, knowing well that the failure was about to be simulated, it’s difficult to conclude that there were no underlying safety issues.

I don’t know what military would send its recruits with no support through a South American jungle with no supplies, where many aren’t going to make it, and then have them take low paying jobs in the US, but you are entitled to your opinion.

William Reading, John D, and ESPECIALLY bweston will never specifically answer, or respond to comments like you posted. If they were to actually respond with common sense and facts, they would have to AGREE with you. So, they change the subject to liberal talking points and pontificate and bloviate with what MSNBC tells them to say. They've never had an original thought using actual facts (vs blatant liberal lies...like this: "Not sure if you’re serious, but the population of authorized immigrants has remained roughly constant over the years.")
billatq
billatq 7
I don’t get my news from TV or talk radio, and neither should you.

It’s frustrating to me when there is a nugget of a fact twisted to a non-sensical talking point that is repeated with no critical thought. For example, yes, there are many Chinese refugees coming to the US. But they are an ethnic minority that would be in labor camps at home. When you read about espionage related to Chinese nationals, it’s invariably by folks legally in the country.

We have real problems in the US to worry about, like rising cost of education, kids that have to move in with their parents because they can’t get good jobs and real estate is expensive, even with a STEM degree. We can’t get a handle on school shootings, and people still have medical bankruptcy despite having insurance.

For sure we need sensible immigration policies, but many problems in the US are self-inflicted, and are less often talked about because they are normalized and frankly hard to fix. It’s much easier to focus on a wedge issue that is easy to get people worked up about.

If you want specific facts, if you go look at the numbers published by the government over the last 30 years, the unauthorized numbers have remained at around 11M. You don’t have to take my word for it, it’s an actual fact published by the last four presidential administrations.

Folks that are going to stay long-term are usually authorized to be in the country, and folks who aren’t typically rotate out. It’s that simple. They keep their heads low because they could be deported at the drop of a hat, and do a lot of hard and literal backbreaking jobs.

Folks that present as refugees have a hard uphill battle to win, and most get deported. Some remain after this process, but those have authorized status. It’s far easier to be born in the US than to migrate to it, even if you have a good job.

So yeah, I’m alarmed that our country seems to have trouble solving real problems and is more focused on things that can be ginned up for votes. Discourse feels dead.

You wanna get a handle on school shootings? Get rid of making them f'n "gun-free zones". All those zones do is MAKE schools (and other "gun-free zones") shooting galleries where crazed gunmen KNOW they will not meet ANY armed resistance.

Gun-free zones are one of the stupidest inventions of mankind, because the ONLY people abiding by the rules are the very people you don't have to worry about - the law-abiding - and the very people capable of stopping a crazed gunman - concealed-carriers.

So what? As long as she passed security checkpoint, the TSA did his job. It's not the job of TSA to verify that passengers have the right ticket (and nor should it be). That's a job for the airline. Same as having to produce an ID for flying when there's no law requiring that. I couldn't care less if someone flies without ID, as long as it does not have a weapon.

Weapons are a human right.

Acting Violently isn't. And that's what you don't want on a plane. You can't screen for violent intent though. So I guess you're just going to have to wake up to the reality that safety is a mirage, and stop wasting our tax money and time trying to make things safer.

Get her! She's illegally immigrating from Nashville to LA!

Honestly who cares. she flew for free. that's AA's problem to worry about. I bet it happens all the time with friends of staff who are just smart enough to keep their mouth shut.

Don't tell me the equity hires at the TSA know their ass from a fake ticket. There's multiple websites, right now, to generate fake tickets. Kids sneak into movies for free too.

What's funny is that the TSA responded, they're "gonna start blocking off unused security lanes".... What?, so ... uh, you haven't been doing that since September 2001?

You know this lady wasn't the first, so I guess this whole terrorism thing was just BS all along since they've had every opportunity to do it again, and haven't done so.

And... why would someone want to go from a beautiful city like Nashville, to LA? Really. That's like sneaking into a trash truck to steal free transportation to the city dump. OR stealing shit out of a toilet bowl. This lady needs a mental health evaluation.
