Fallout continues from Newark airport security breach

As you may have heard, Newark was in disarray Sunday night after a terminal was emptied and thousands of travelers delayed by an elusive man who couldn't be found after going through a security checkpoint the wrong way. High sensitivity to such things is another effect of the recent terrorism scare. Continental, hurt the most by the EWR incident, said it would make it up to customers who were inconvenienced with refunds and no change fees. If that includes you, get in touch with the airline. Here is the best report I've seen on what happened at the airport on a busy Sunday night at the end of a holiday.
