Stowaway makes cross-country flight on expired boarding pass 

Nigerian stowaway Olajide Noibi flew from New York to Los Angeles via Virgin America airlines, using an expired boarding pass in someone else’s name. He somehow got past a federal security checkpoint where travelers must show their identification and boarding passes. Although Noibi aroused flight attendants’ suspicion, he successfully exited the flight and was only arrested by the FBI when he tried to pull the same trick on a later flight from Los Angeles to Atlanta.
