(Newser) – A Nigerian man boarded a Virgin Atlantic airplane last week with an invalid boarding pass, according to the FBI. The man, Olajide Olwaseun Noibi, sneaked onto a flight from New York to Los Angeles and sat in the main cabin. When a flight attendant asked him to show his boarding pass, he produced an expired pass that belonged to someone else. Days later, airport officials found 10 expired boarding passes in his bag—none of them in his name. The TSA says Noibi was screened before he boarded the flight. He has been charged with being a stowaway. (Read more Virgin Atlantic stories.)
