Secure Flight promises smoother process for passengers

With an average four-second processing time for matching fliers' name against federal terrorist watch lists, officials say the latest phase in the Secure Flight rollout -- which will start being phased in beginning Aug. 15 -- should be all but invisible to passengers. "People need not fear they're going to be delayed at the checkpoint," says a TSA spokesman. The new policy requires requiring an exact name match between boarding pass and I.D., as well as for passengers to provide their birth date and gender when they make their flight reservations. Mark Fava, a former attorney with Delta Air Lines, says turning over the screening process to the TSA will make things easier for customers, because airlines had limited options when they found a suspected match under the old system.
