Southwest Airlines last week became the latest carrier to begin asking passengers for additional information under TSA's Secure Flight program. The agency will use the information -- full name, gender and birth date -- to check passengers against federal watch lists in an effort to reduce confusion and delay at the airport. A TSA spokesperson says passengers who fail to provide the data could experience additional inconveniences. "At the very least, there would be a delay at the ticket counter," she notes.
