Secure Flight Update

You may notice some changes when you fly after August 15th. "What were expecting is the airlines to ask for Secure flight passenger data." What that means according to TSA Secure Flight Director Paul Lehy is you'll be asked for "full name date of birth, gender and if there is a regress address provide that as well". This is being done to make sure known or suspected terrorists can't get a boarding pass. The programs includes a behind-the-scenes watch list matching process that vets passengers against government watch lists before a boarding pass is ever issued.
