New TSA Rules

New TSA (Transportation Security Administration) rules began being phased in on May 15th.

They require all airlines operating within the U.S. to collect the full name, date of birth and gender of each passenger. Allegedly, the new rules were put in place to help prevent the problem of misidentifying passengers with those who have similar names and are on the 'terrorist watch list'.

It may take a few months for all of the airlines to be able to integrate this information into their systems. Once that is accomplished, this new rule will apply to all airlines that fly into, out of, or over the U.S.
