Gold proceeded to show her false boarding pass, along with her I.D. to the aforementioned TSA agent. As she told CBS 2, “He asked me to remove my sunglasses — checking my driver’s license, supposedly, against this boarding pass — and he ushered me right through”.
It wasn't until the real Mark Dornan, the passenger whose name was on her erroneous pass, found Gold in his seat on the plane that anyone realized the mistake.
For a second though, things got a little dicey for Gold when TSA boarded the plane and accused her of breaching security. "They're are [sic] like, ‘This is not your boarding pass’. They tell me I’m a security breach. It was actually very humiliating", she said.
Once Gold presented the boarding pass on her phone, however, the whole matter was cleared up, and she was permitted to continue on the flight.
