    Getting past security is not too hard with a ticket you are not even going to use. And, as said you do not even have to show an ID.

    But - getting past the gate agent is another story.

    The real crazy part is they just let this woman leave. No ticket? Nothing?

    In every airport in the US that I've flown out of since 9/11, you most definitely need to show ID at the checkpoint!

    Agent: Sir, you will need to join the line to board.
    Man: I want to board now!
    Agent: Sir, you will need to join the line if you wish to board.
    Man: Do you know who I am?
    Agent: {picks up microphone} Attention! We have a gentleman at gate 12 who does not know who he is. If anyone can identify, please report to gate 12.
    Man: F*ck you!
    Agent: I'm afraid there's a line for that too.

    That is the bigger mystery to me. Only way I can think of right off is she somehow slipped past the agent during some distraction?. Or she grabbed someone elses BP and used that, and then tossed the evidence before even getting to her seat.

    Everyone has to scan a pass. Mine would not scan right one day and I was busy at the counter for another 10 minutes until they cancelled me out and put it back in again.

    Just tell her not to fall off of the jetway . . . . . . . . . again.

    Yeah you'd be surprised how many boarding passes are laying around from people losing or misplacing them.. They don't check ID last security so you can get on with anyones...

    I have seen them often and never though about. I remember once my wife was concerned someone would not be able to board since they lost their BP. I reminded her that many folks have it on their phone and a printed one - just in case. And of course, it is easy to just go to the counter or kiosk and get another one.

    On our last Delta flight, on the connecting portion out of Sea-Tac, there was only one gate person trying to answer questions at the desk, making announcements, and then when boarding started, she was the boarding pass checker also. She had to tell passengers to get back in the correct boarding area, get out of the way of others trying to board, telling a couple that she couldn't go over to the desk to help them at that time. She was a lot more patient with people that I am sure wanted to be.
    It would not have surprised me if the distractions had led to someone sneaking aboard. I really felt sorry for her and thought Delta should have had someone else there to help.
    Getting past initial TSA screening is another issue though.
