2005_11_ewr.jpgThis might be a blow to using computer printed airplane itineraries: A man managed to get onto a plane using only a print itin over the weekend. Danis Ballard was only removed from a Miami-bound American Airlines flight when the flight attendants realized there was an extra person on board. Apparently Ballard had inquired about buying a ticket earlier, but didn't, simply receiving "an itinerary on paper stock similar to what is used for boarding passes" and somehow got past security with it. What? So that means he didn't even have a ticket at the gate, just the itin thing! What is going on? American Airlines will be fined $25,000 while Ballard was charged with criminal trespass. We expect that we'll need official tickets (that say "TICKET") on them when we try to even get to security.
