We have talked about the new TSA Secure Flight
program for several months now. The program was to begin in May and will require you to provide us with your full name as it appears on your government ID you use to board airplanes. In addition, you will also need to provide us with your date of birth and gender.
We now understand that this program will begin August 15, 2009.
We have undertaken a large update and enhancement of our internal profile systems to accommodate the storage of this very valuable and confidential information. We will be informing you on how we will comply with this TSA program as we move closer to August 15, 2009.
