JFK Allowed Passengers Arriving On International Flight To Exit Without Going Through Customs


Passengers arriving at Kennedy Airport on an international flight were allowed to exit the busy hub without going through Customs — for at least the second time in recent months, the NY Daily News reports.

Bumbling airline and security officials let travelers on American Airlines Flight 1223 from Cancun, Mexico, out of the airport on Monday morning without having their passports or bags checked, sources told The News.

The security lapse mirrored a similar incident involving another American Airlines flight in November. Read more.



  1. Big deal, all of those passengers and bags were checked at foreign borders and have a passport number already sent to US officers before takeoff abroad. I would think govt should rather worry about the avalanche of syrian passports (printed and stamped by former government employees, and thus technically authentic).

  2. Just happened to be a flight specifically from Mexico, just happened to be a number of times. Of couse, no drugs would ever be smuggled on a Mexico flight. Certainly, no customs officials were bribed to allow the drug shipment. Nothing to see here, move along, declare your esrogim.
