A learning experience?

What lesson will the airport authorities learn from this security lapse?
The 11-year-old boy sparked a security alert after managing to fly from Manchester to Rome on his own without a passport, ticket or boarding pass.The schoolboy passed through security without being checked, before boarding the Jet2.com flight yesterday
.Liam had travelled less than three miles from a nearby shopping centre, before evading five security checks to successfully board flight LS791 to the Italian capital.
The captain was only alerted to the extra passenger when holidaymakers raised concerns during the flight.
It would be a foolish dream to suggest that they should limit themselves to one security check and do it properly.  No, I suspect that it will involve additional tedious and futile checks, to the discomfort and inconvenience of travellers.
