LOS ANGELES (AP) — A Nigerian American has been indicted on federal stowaway charges after authorities say he breached three layers of airport security when he got on a cross-country flight with an expired boarding pass.

A federal grand jury in Los Angeles returned a two-count indictment Friday against 24-year-old Oluwaseun Noibi.

He faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted. Noibi’s public defender declined comment.

Authorities say Noibi boarded a flight in New York on June 24 using an expired boarding pass with someone else’s name on it. The Virgin America crew didn’t realize until mid-flight that an extra passenger was onboard.

After arriving in Los Angeles and spending several days in the city, Noibi was arrested for attempting to board a Delta Air Lines flight with another expired pass.

    He should be commended for showing how many flaws there are in the airlines……I took a flight 2 weeks ago on American Airlines and on board were three Middle eastern men, they kept talking about strange things like what if they are accused of having a bomb in the baggage compartment, plus, two of them left their seat as the plane was landing. I complained about them earlier and I would have assumed that would be enough to have the Airport Police or even the FBI handle this when we land…. But nope…The stewardess served them alcohol and told me there was nothing they will do about it and that they (American Airlines) didn’t see a problem with it???? Even though, they left there seats during landing??? I’ll remember that next time! I thought Homeland Security had asked the publics help in reporting suspicious activity? Well, Now I know, That it’s useless!

      I wonder what American Airlines would do if you requested extra Salt with your meal yet saved it to throw in the eyes of these individuals who got up while the plane was landing? Your excuse, our Presidents and FBI instructed us all to be vigilant!
