British Kid Flies To Rome Without Passport And Ticket

jones_supa (887896) writes "A boy of 11 flew alone to Rome after he ran away from his mother and boarded a flight at Manchester Airport without a passport, boarding pass or cash. Security staff scanned him but failed to realize he was on his own and had no boarding card. It was only during the journey to Italy that passengers became suspicious and told the cabin crew. The crew members alerted the captain who radioed back to Manchester. Now a full-scale investigation has been mounted by Manchester Airport and Jet2.com to find out how this was possible. It is understood five members of staff working for Jet2.com have been suspended from duty while the investigation takes place."
