Crystal Travel just added a new airline provider to get you the lowest airfare possible. But what if someone is at the airport and about ready to board the plane, and suddenly realize they left their identification at home and you don't have time to run home and get it. Most people would panic and think they'll never get on the flight. Crystal Travel Center wants to advise their members to simply alert the TSA agents and know that it is possible to fly without identification. It's not easy. It takes a lot of extra time. But it's possible.
According to an article in the New York Times, "The Transportation Security Administration's Web site, a federal- or state-issued photo identification is required to fly. But, the article adds: "We understand passengers occasionally arrive at the airport without an ID due to lost items or inadvertently leaving them at home. Not having an ID does not necessarily mean a passenger won't be allowed to fly. If passengers are willing to provide additional information, we have other means of substantiating someone's identity, like using publicly available databases."
A special T.S.A. agent will have the individual sign a form, allowing the agency to verify their identity. They may also ask me more questions -- things like previous addresses and date of births, similar to the online verification process one goes through when opening a bank account or obtaining a credit report.
In short, it's a hassle to fly without identification, but it is possible.
