AND FINALLY: Cockpit spare seat

The latest from America.

Booked in coach class a French tourist at Philadelphia Airport noticed that the flight deck door was open, fancied a better ride, and sat down on the jump seat.

The crew were too busy to notice and it was only when a flight attendant entered the cockpit and saw the man struggling with seat straps did anyone notice that things were not right.

He is now being held on US$1m bail by Philadelphia police.  The FBI is investigating, too.
