The couple, returning from Brazil, were involved in a security breach at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport on Tuesday morning, when a TSA employee allowed them to skip a security checkpoint while transferring flights.
“An airline employee escorted the two travelers through a non-public area in order to provide expedited access to their domestic flight,” a TSA spokesman said, according to New York’s Daily News.
The spokesman said the employee was to blame – not Kardashian, 32, and West, 35.
The couple, who are expecting a baby, had returned from Carnival in Brazil and were transferring to a flight to Los Angeles. They made the connection but were forced to disembark and be screened privately, delaying the flight for an hour.
TMZ.com first reported the incident.
