This guy is not necessarily out there flying coach, sitting in the back of the plane. He's not necessarily entering the airport through the main entrance walking around looking for his gate, stopping to buy some Toblerone. He's arriving at, moving through and leaving from these airports through non-public channels. He's one of the last guys on the plane and the first off the plane. The only real opportunity for anyone to photograph him is either the crew or one of the limited number of business class travelers. With, in this case, the FSB waiting on the other side.
So Snowden is avoiding the public and reporters by moving through airports through "non-public channels"? Why are airports allowing Snowden to do this? Also, source please.
So the people in business class dont have smart phones? Reporters dont fly business class?
