New TSA rules for all air travelers

TSA issuing new rules for air travel

Security changes at airports could affect whether you even get on a plane starting next week.

The first part of getting where you're going is showing security your boarding pass and identification. But that's about to change.

"The TSA is requiring the full name by May 15, 2009," said Bethanne Harrison-Brown of The Travel Authority.

The TSA will require your full name, first, middle and last on your ticket starting next Friday. Until now, only your first and last name got you on a plane.

But come May 15, the name on your reservation must match the name on your driver's license or passport.

"Everything has to match," said Harrison-Brown. "If it doesn't match, if it's not in there, you cannot check in. You will be denied."
