New airport check in system fails even the basic security checksPosted Wed, June 23, 2010 — Posted by Ron McQuilter
As reported on Campbell Live tonight at 7pm, the new check in system at Auckland Airport is sadly lacking in even the basic security features. The gorgeous reporter Rebbecca Wright (who, trust us does not look like a man), was able to travel on a man's ticket, even boarding the same plane as the same man and travelling together on the same Boarding Pass. Then to make matters worse, they were able to check in an extra bag after a passenger (an MP) had already checked in and went through Aviation Security screening. The bag could have contained anything defamatory, illegal or worse.
Airport officials need to act on this now and actually engage security experts as opposed to computer people. Do we pity the person who signed off on this new system ?? No we pity the person who might fall foul of this basic "security 101" error.
