  •  The best part was... (9+ / 0-)

    Flying to Detroit in the middle of winter from Nigeria with no checked baggage.  

    Another would have been requesting a seat in row 19 on that specific plane, which would be the row where a bomb would do the most damage and have the best chance of bringing down a plane.  

    That should be an automatic red flag if I ever saw one.

    •  the seat was likely booked from ghana (0+ / 0-)

      so there would be no one to tell the airline that it was specifically requested.

      Heck if you book it through a travel agent in ghana no one is going to know if you asked for a seat or not.  If you do it at the ghanaian airport when you book your through flights, they aren't going to either imo

      Also asking for a seat over the wings and a window seat is not unusual.  Many people feel it is the safest seat, bc so many planes have an exit door there.  A window is seat is more than a common request

      be screened more carefully, even more carefully that those by emergency exits.
