"oh hello, can I have the seat at the window? I need to know when to press the button for my secret bomb. Will be a hell over London, don't you think? Ah thanks for moving."

Not only maniac but also dumb as f()ck, let's hope it is a common attitude of those

He got on the plane with the knives! What happened to the airport security? What happened to metal detectors? Security guards?

He was only caught because a fellow passenger was alert....unbelievable.

Just goes to show....all the extra security means ****!!

If you've ever been to Spain you'll know the security guards don't do # at all, even if you beep going through the detector.
