Hi, I am flying soon on a domestic flight and I am wondering if the TSA checks for warrants on passengers? I’m looking for a honest and straight to the point answer. Thank you
Huh, I’m actually surprised by this, but it looks like the answer is “not routinely” for domestic travel.
TSA does match your name, DOB, and gender, against the No Fly List and Selectee List. It is always possible that a TSA agent could refer a person to law enforcement (if they are behaving suspiciously, or really for any other reason). Law enforcement would then likely run their ID, just like they would at a traffic stop.
I would probably recommend getting this cleared up, and discussing with an attorney though.
