Dentist’s luggage causes flight scare
THERE IS A DENTIST in Barbados today who is relishing the island’s laid- back lifestyle after a harrowing experience at Miami International Airport on Monday night.
The man, whose name was not released by American Airlines, was hauled off handcuffed from AA Flight 2393 to Barbados after his carry-on luggage triggered security alarms.
The bag was supposed to go to a secondary checkpoint after it was flagged but that did not happen, and the dentist innocently boarded the flight.
Dozens of flights – one American news agency saying as many as 50 – were either delayed or diverted as Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officials tried to find the bag and the man. (HLE)
