9 Year Old Runaway Flies to Texas

A 9 year old who was unhappy in his Tacoma, Washington, decided he would fly to Dallas to runaway from his family.  So he somehow boarded a Southwest flight to Phoenix, changed planes, and ended up mistakenly in San Antonio, not Dallas.  All of this happened without a ticket or boarding pass, which has puzzled Southwest Airlines officials (as you might imagine).  The child has a history of getting into trouble, including stealing a car last week.  No word on whether he’ll receive Rapid Rewards miles for the flight.

  1. So much for the TSA impounding an ice cream cone- when an 80 pound kid could just slip through security and get on a plane without a boarding pass? ….Hopefully “thing 1 and thing 2” don’t get any crazy ideas.
