    Anything sealed and in your checked baggage will be ok. If its only a few things there is really no need to declare them.

  • License expired
    Jan 14, 2014
    My license expired in March and I moved outta town and it's been difficult getting what I need for a new one. The state I live in requires different documents, but is it ok if I have my social security documents with it? Will I be able to board?


    Yes, you just need some other official documentation with your name on it along with your expired license (assuming this is a domestic flight).


    Yes it's domestic but what type of documents? It's only my second time flying so I don't know. Sorry for all the questions.


    The TSA website simply states "Other forms of ID" - so anything else with your name on it, preferably issued by the government, but even if not, that should work.


  • Mother is MIa

    My mother inlaw supposedly boarded southwest in albany to lax thru midway and she should have been in la at 1pm. She is missing. Southwest will not let us know if she even got on a plane.. What do we do????


    Airlines cannot give out information on passengers. You'll have to get in contact with your mother somehow.

    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?


    It doesn't matter. Boarding passes usually don't print your middle name anyway.
