TSA to send screeners for training after security lapse at JFK

3-Mar-2011 4:17 PM

US Transportation Security Administration announced plans to send three screeners at John F Kennedy International Airport for remedial training after allowing a passenger carrying three box cutters onto a JetBlue service (AP, 02-Mar-2011). The box cutters reportedly fell out of the passenger’s carry-on luggage on the aircraft. TSA officers re-screened all of the passengers and the service departed three hours late.
