SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — A man detained in Puerto Rico had apparently managed to board a New York-bound jet in Nigeria even though he was on an official no-fly list.

A passenger tells The Associated Press that the pilot disclosed the apparent breach as the Delta Air Lines flight stopped to refuel in Puerto Rico.

Passenger Joan Mower says the pilot said he was informed about the passenger while over the Atlantic.

Flight 215 originated in Abuja, Nigeria, where the man boarded the jet. It continued on to New York after the man was detained Thursday. U.S. Customs and Border Patrol says the unidentified man is being held for questioning. He was taken into custody without incident.

Customs officials had no immediate comment.
You gotta love the extra security the airlines have now. fly to areas like Nigeria, and you should suspect people getting on the plane to the US who aren't supposed to be flying here.

Perhaps he was escorted onto the plane by a "shady character"

It happened before..

All seems to be allowed in the war on privacy.

The no fly list is a joke in itself. It has 3 year old kids names on it.

Yes, my name is OSAMA BIN LADEN...yes that is correct, it is spelled BIN LADEN.

Check to see if anyone you know is on the forbidden list...
