A bearded man was left surprised after managing to travel from England to Germany, with his girlfriend’s passport.
Josh Reed of London, said that he hurried to catch his flight to Dortmund, and grabbed Sophie Watkins’ passport instead of his own.
He only realized the error after he boarded the Ryanair flight.
His girlfriend quickly mailed out his passport in order for her boyfriend to be able to return to London. Reed sports a beard and is 6 feet 3 inches tall, while his girlfriend is only 5 feet 2 inches tall.
Reed looks nothing like his girlfriend, but somehow, security personnel at the Stansted airport did not notice that he was showing them somebody else’s passport.
Luckily, when he arrived at his destination, he was allowed to enter the country using his driver’s license as identification.
A spokesperson for Ryanair said that Swissport, the handling agent at the boarding gates, mistakenly failed to check the passport of this passenger.
Swissport promised that it will take action to prevent this from happening again.
