That's a fair point, be interesting if reliable figures were available on the percentage of stowaways that had clearance to be airside. There's still one process/security failing even if the stowaway was allowed to be on that side of the fence (I guess they could also have a ticket..) but if so it's only a cheese with one hole in rather than multiple holes

Security for Stowaways

I suppose if a would be stowaway had legitimate access airside through employment the baggage hold would be the best place being less cold and presurised but would non aviation people know that?

So many excellent experts here. Does anyone know of what they speak? I don't think so...

ORY is a maintenance base for AF 777's. The plane was positionned there for that reason. I don't know what check was scheduled but I suppose it was a big one and that means going through the insides of the aircraft. As stated before, you can't have a look inside the wheel wells on a simple walkaround.

Happens in the USA Sometimes

A mangled body was discovered in the yard of a Milton, MA home in 2010... a note in the pocket of the victim allowed back tracing. It was a North Carolina teen who hid inside the well of a US Air B737 on a flight to BOS. Gear down over Milton on approach to 4R, out he came. Darwin in action. Took a few weeks to figure the situation out, IIRC.
