Could an airline check in employee have seen your LTC when you were checking in and flagged you?

What airport?
Nope - used my passport. It was DFW and AA terminal. I thought it weird also - but given how much data is available on practically everyone in USA, I just went on my happy way. Never had it happen before, and since that one outbound trip. Return was no problem. Something triggered a secondary search, don't know what that was.

If they ran your name through NCIC it will show that you have an LTC. In regards to another post about a digital copy of an ID if you use Apple Wallet you can access cards and IDs while the rest of the phone is still locked.

One last question on the card please.
What is the reasoning behind not being able to have it on your phone (not carrying physical card)?
You can have your credit card on it, why not driver lic or LTC?
Great forum. Now understand why LTC not built into driver license.
A picture of something on your phone wont have a magnetic strip.
A phone copy will not have tactile feel, wont be tamper resistant...if you read the info link posted, what they said about the card it address why a picture of it on a phone would not meet the designed in safety features
Also the card is a way of identifying if you are unable to provide access to the phone....ie dead, unconscious, etc
