Cathay Pacific flight returns following security breach.

AIRLINE INDUSTRY INFORMATION-(C)1997-2003 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD

A Cathay Pacific Airways aircraft was forced to abort its flight on 10 February due to a security breach.

The Hong Kong-bound flight returned to Surabaya airport, Indonesia after it was discovered that a passenger had failed to board the Airbus A330 although their luggage had been loaded.

The incident followed a previous security lapse by the carrier in which four people checked their luggage but failed to board a flight at London's Heathrow airport.
