The better question is "why does TSA require your ID to match your boarding pass?". If the point is to prevent folks on the no fly list from getting past them, then there is no need to ensure that your ticket matches your name. Personally, I think the point is to help safeguard the revenue of the airlines by preventing folks from re-selling tickets they can't use (and where the airline gladly resells the same seat to someone on the standby list for that flight).LDP wrote: ↑Mon Jul 22, 2019 4:59 pmMy mistake. I misunderstood, I thought it was TSA refusing to acknowledge the "outdated" IDs. As long as it is valid, I don't see a problem.rotor wrote: ↑Mon Jul 22, 2019 4:38 pmI guess you mean stupidity of Congress as they created the law. But they (dems) want to ban voter ID.
I do not understand how rules, regulations and laws like these can pass, without anybody applying basic common sense.
Yes, I know its a condition of the transaction I entered into with the airline, but I'd prefer that my employees at the TSA focus on security, first and foremost.
I have the same concerns about TSA employees enforcing carry-on bag size restrictions which happens at some airports.
