Serial Stowaway Arrested Again at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport

Airlines now get one-fourth of their revenue from fees, and one of the biggest is a charge of up to $200 to change or cancel a ticket. When all the receipts are counted, it is likely that consumers paid the airlines more than $3 billion in fees to cancel or change a flight in 2015. That is triple what they paid in change fees in 2007. (AP Photo/Nam Y. Huh, File)

A woman with a history of sneaking aboard airplanes has been arrested again at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport. Chicago police say 64-year-old Marilyn Hartman was arrested about 2:30 p.m. Wednesday at an airport bus shuttle center. Police say she’s in custody and scheduled to appear Thursday in bond court.

Hartman has tried numerous times in recent years to board planes without a ticket, succeeding at least once. She was arrested twice in two days last summer at O’Hare and Chicago’s Midway International Airport.

Police say she’s a “habitual trespasser and stowaway in violation of her court-ordered probation.”

Hartman is charged with felony probation violation and misdemeanor criminal trespass. She was released on probation to a Chicago nursing home in December and ordered to avoid airports and Chicago’s Union Station.
