Man takes box cutters on JetBlue flight
The Transportation Security Administration is sending three screeners for remedial training after a passenger carried three box cutters onto a JetBlue plane at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport.
Authorities say the box cutters fell out of the passenger's carry-on luggage as he was stowing it in an overhead compartment on a flight to the Dominican Republic on Saturday night. Police evacuated the flight and questioned the passenger, who said he used the box cutters for his work and had forgotten to take them out of his bag.
JetBlue said TSA officers re-screened all the passengers and the flight was allowed to take off about three hours later.
