Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : Man Flies from Copenhagen to Los Angeles Without Passport or Ticket

In a shocking turn of events, a man managed to board a Scandinavian Airlines flight from Copenhagen to Los Angeles without a passport or a ticket. The incident, which occurred last month, has raised serious concerns about airport security and has left authorities baffled.

The man, identified as Sergey Vladimirovich Ochigava, somehow bypassed security and gate agents at Copenhagen Airport, according to an affidavit filed by an FBI agent. Ochigava’s audacity did not stop there, as he reportedly requested two meals during each meal service on the 12-hour flight, changed seats regularly, and even tried to chat with fellow passengers.

The crew members on the flight became suspicious when Ochigava attempted to eat the chocolate that belonged to the cabin crew. Although they did not see his boarding pass, they did note that the seat he initially took was supposed to be unoccupied. However, they did not conduct a proper head count to ensure the accuracy of the passenger manifest.

It was only upon landing in Los Angeles that officials discovered Ochigava’s presence on the flight. He was not listed on the passenger manifest, and when questioned by border officials, he claimed to have left his passport on the plane. However, no such document was found. Ochigava was taken into custody carrying identification from Russia and Israel, leading officials to believe that he is a Russian citizen.

Ochigava, who claimed to have a PhD in economics and marketing, pleaded not guilty to violating the U.S. criminal code that prohibits stowing away on an airplane. If convicted, he could face up to five years in prison.

Scandinavian Airlines has confirmed that there was a “situation regarding a passenger” on the flight but has not provided further details. Both Danish and American investigators are now looking into the incident to determine how such a security breach could have occurred.

Ochigava’s trial is scheduled to begin on December 26, where more information about this audacious act is expected to be revealed. The incident serves as a stark reminder of the importance of airport security, and the need for constant vigilance to prevent similar incidents from happening in the future.
