ATLANTA (AP) -- Officials at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport are investigating a reported incident in which dozens of arriving passengers on a flight from Cancun were allowed to bypass customs and head directly to baggage claim.
Bonnie Beck was aboard the Delta Air Lines flight and told WSB-TV in Atlanta she knew something was not right since they did not go through security. She said an airport official ran over, asking if they were aboard the Cancun flight and then ordered them to come back.
WSB-TV reported Delta Air Lines was working with customs and immigration officials to locate three passengers who left the airport without clearance.
Delta spokeswoman Morgan Durrant told the TV station the airline is investigating and reiterated "safety and security of our customers is Delta's number one priority."
