Air France says a French man arrested after sitting inside the cockpit of a plane scheduled to fly from Philadelphia is not one of its employees.

The airline said Friday that Philippe Jernnard was not wearing the airline's uniform, did not have a badge verifying he was crew member or was not carrying any Air France crew baggage.

Jernnard, a ticketed passenger, was arrested Wednesay night after he was found by the crew of a US Airways flight bound for West Palm Beach, Fla., sitting in the jump seat behind the pilot.

He was wearing a white shirt with an Air France logo and black jacket with epaulets on the shoulders. Officer Christine O'Brien said police also found him in possession of a counterfeit Air France crew member ID card.
