I didnt think it ever was? They already had connecting flights booked from China.

Nothing except extremely worrying how easy it was for them to get on the plane

No. I saw the original email when it was sent out, which spread about the MOD like a wild fire. The "reply" from the Junior Officers is really funny which I think now everyone inthe Department has read. I think the guy has ended his career in one email which is quite an achievement.

Having a connecting flight doesn't mean anything. It would be a pretty easy ruse if it did.

SECURITY: I'm sorry, Sir, you cannot board this plane with those explosives.

PASSENGER: It's alright, I'm connecting in Beijing

SECURITY: My mistake, Sir, have a nice flight. Just make sure you don't take those bombs with you to your final destination, OK?

PASSENGER: Don't worry, I won't.

No, no. He was quite serious. The distribution list was to his senior officers who he writes reports on so they will be expected to take action on it. However we have heard reports of everyone eating sandwiches at their desk with a knife and fork as he walks past. He's pretty much a laughing stock now.
