EY - Security Breach at JFK

NEW YORK A security screener at Kennedy International Airport trying to see his parents off on a trip boarded their plane without a ticket or a boarding pass Thursday and was arrested, authorities said.

The man boarded an Etihad Airways flight bound for the United Arab Emirates, and when the plane's doors shut, he notified a flight attendant, said Steve Coleman, a spokesman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

Port Authority police arrested the man on a misdemeanor charge of criminal trespass, Coleman said. The man, who later was released, is a passenger and baggage screener for the Transportation Security Administration, agency spokeswoman Ann Davis said.

A telephone call to an airline spokesman was not immediately returned Thursday night.

I would guess he abused his position to be able to get onboard the aircraft.

Yes, I would say that the TSA agent did, however, what was the staff thinking to let him down the jetway and didn't know he was still on board when the door closed. Very strange indeed.
