    Nov 19, 2013
    I just discovered my middle name on my eticket doesn't match the one on my passport. I tried calling but everything is closed. I fly out in the morning at 07:00 Suggestions?

  • Children and ID (last names not the same)
    Aug 30, 2013
    I'm traveling with my 2 children in a couple weeks (ages 4 and 9). First, do they need their birth certificate?, and second, my oldest does not have the same last name as me anymore, will that be a problem with security? If it will what documentation would I need to provide to prove I am his mother? We are traveling to Orlando on Delta.


    No, if you are flying domestically, young children do not need any documentation. You do not need to prove anything regarding your children.

  • Always unorganized at IAH
    Jul 16, 2013
    Once again on a Frdiay morning full of travelers IAH continues to have one security line open,and no kiosk open to check your own bag. The management of security and check in at this airport needs to fly around the US and take some serious notes. I am sorry to call Houston my home every time I have to fly.


    What airline? Terminal?


    I fly regularly through IAH on Sundays and the security line is inexcusable at Terminal D. I have a connection at B so will often take the bus over to B and go through security there. It seems better, maybe because its domestic.


    I think a lot of people don't know you can go through security in B.


    IAH is also very bad arriving from overseas--I use other airports when I can...


  • walking with a cane
    Jun 2, 2013
    I walk with a cane. Is there, will there be any problem, at the air port or boarding my flight (DELTA) because of this?


    No, that should not be a problem. Thousands of people do it every day.
