    Authorities are looking for a flight attendant who they say fled Los Angeles International Airport after being selected for a random security screening Friday, leaving behind almost 70 pounds of cocaine stashed in her luggage.

    The unidentified woman remained at large Monday. It was not immediately clear which airline she worked for.

    Marshall McClain, president of the union representing the airport's police officers, said the woman was sent to a secondary screening area, but she quickly dropped her bag, ditched a pair of Gucci heels and fled barefoot down an upward-moving escalator.

    I think she should have spread it among her cohorts. It would be nice to see a more perky cabin crew these days, as seen here

    Or they could add another aircraft to their fleet if they traded in the cocaine

    Speaking of Allegiant, the satisfaction survey that Allegiant pilots filled out, gives even more validation to not fly Allegiant.
