  • Airport ID Requirements in 2013?
    Jan 17, 2013

    Will a valid NM state driver's license be sufficient for air travel in 2013?

     

    For domestic flights you will need another valid picture ID. For international travel you need a valid passport, not to expire within 6 months after scheduled flight.

     

    tudec's answer is incorrect - a Drivers license is still acceptable ID (on its own). http://www.tsa.gov/traveler-information/acceptable-ids

    I'm 17 And Trying To Fly To Omaha But Don't Have State I.D. , Am I Able To Use School I.D. , Birth Certificate Or Social Security Card ?

     

    Bring along a copy of your SS card (never original - should stay securely at home!) If you don't have a driver's license, bring along copy of birth certificate and possibly a utility bill which will vouch for your state residency.

    what if you are an illegal immigrant and have no ID can you still fly in a plane from one state to another?

     

    No you can't

     

    If you don't have id then you can not.

     

  • JFK Terminal 7 International Connections
    Nov 5, 2012

    Arriving JFK from Toronto after US pre-boarding security inspection in that city for transfer to Cathay Pacific enroute to Hong Kong. Is there an international zone in terminal 7 that permits pax to move between flights without further security checks?

     

    Both Air Canada & Cathay Pacific use Terminal 7 of JFK Airport - all you need to do is walk over to your connecting gate (assuming that Air Canada transfers bags to Cathay flight - if not, you need to claim your bags on the arrivals level , check them in with Cathay, go through security and on to your gates (T7 has gates 1-12).

     

  • Terminal 7 International connections

    Arriving from Toronto after pre-boarding US clearance for Cathay Pacific connection to Hong Kong. Does terminal 7 have an international zone where I can move between flights without any further clearances, assuming AC will transfer baggage directly to CP?

     

    You did not mention which AP you will arrive at from Toronto: I presume you arrive at LAX (Los Angeles) - where AC uses Terminal 2 (T2) and CP will depart from the Bradley Terminal (TBIT or TB). Do not assume transfer baggage by AC - check with them! - if not, you would have to claim your bags & re-check them in at CP counter at TB. To get to TB you have the option of walking from T2, passing T3, walking around the bend to TB - or taking the blue shuttle bus on the isle in front of each terminal running ever 12-15 mins and taking about 6 mins. In either case you need to go through security check at TB before proceeding to your gate. (At TB Past ticket counters A to F are the escalators (at A & F) leading to the TSA Screening, and past that you have in the center bus gates 107-112 and bus gates 113-118, as well as Gates 101-108 to the left, and gates 119 -123 to the right - gateways offer food & drink & shops.

    Can I bring bananas and avocados through security?

     

  • TICKET AND DRIVERS LICENSE DO NOT MATCH

    My DL has my first, middle and last name as required by my state. My ticket only has first and last name on it, because when I booked it through Orbitz it did not require a middle name even though I could have sworn I put it in. Will this be a problem?

     

  • Sack Lunches

    Are sack lunches with home-made sandwiches allowed?

     

    Yes these are allowed - its the liquids that they usually make you trash - so no fruit cups, avoid yogurts, etc. If you have a sauce for the sandwich put it on the bread do not store it separate.

    Can I bring unopened snack foods, ie cashews or chocolates, in my carryon and get thru security screening?

     

    Yes you can!

     

    TSA is concerned about liquids, but generally not about food. I bought a Subway sandwich at SFO before security and brought it onto the plane with no problems.

     

  • keeping shoes on through security check

    do seniors (75+) have to take shoes off to go through security??

     

    Seniors age 75 and above no longer have to take off their shoes.

     

    Correct. The TSA recently realised that people over 75 are incapable of carrying bombs in their shoes.
