Surprisingly, TSA never had a problem with it. Now she has the green card and just uses Rita Sharon Stone
Aparently your travels didn't take you through DTW
For the reasons listed above, no boarding pass has my true legal name on them, it's usually KINGCLIBY/LINCOLN or some variation.
I was doing an interline itinerary with SAN
-- at the time NW
were in separate terminals at DTW
(DL in Smith, NW
in the McNamera). On the flight back, the NW
(Mesaba) agent in PLN issued boarding passes for all segments, on, of course, NW
So I get to DTW
, exit security, take the interterminal shuttle and get in line for security at the Smith terminal.
The #1 TSA
dude starts getting excited and tells me that I'm in the wrong terminal and I have to leave, etc., etc.; I pointed out the "DL xxxxx" flight number and explained that the "DL" stood for Delta... then he starts examining my ID
and boarding pass and literally starts shreaking that the names don't mats and
I'm in the wrong terminal (aparently King-Cliby and KINGCLIBY is a huge difference, after all there are so many of us Clibys, let alone King-Clibys on this planet).
Supervisor comes over and starts with the "wrong terminal" thing, so I point out the DL
flight number again (by this point I'm thinking it would be easier to go over to the DL
counter, and get a replacement BP
) and he understands, but the other guy starts shreaking about the names not matching again... supervisor takes a look and decides that it is, after all, close enough.
