comment Can a person in the USA fly with an expired driving license?
Second this. There are examples of people who flew with no ID at all. Allow lots of extra time at boarding.

comment 10 pieces of checked luggage on a flight instead of a shipping service - crazy?
I would be very worried that that online calculator is figuring multiple pieces that add up to no more than the specified weight. Other than that, print it out so you can prove what it says!

comment How did security checks at airports change after September 11th, 2001?
@voretaq7 Small blades were permissible. One time at security they noticed a blade (pocket knife) the person in front of me was carrying. They measured it, it was under 3", they were allowed on the plane with it.

comment Where in Russia can I pay to shoot an AK-47?
You don't need to go to Russia. A local outfit offers this: therange702.com I have no experience with the company beyond the fact that they have enough ads around I remembered the URL and so I checked it first. I would assume their competitors (and they do have them!) provide similar offerings although exactly what machine guns they have available is something you would have to check.

comment How are laws different when in a Native American reservation (that matter to a tourist)
Second the strict enforcement. Think speed trap.

comment Should I take into account the transit time when booking with the same airline?
It's "safe" in the sense they'll put you on a later plane--but this is on a space-available basis.

comment Can I print my Spirit boarding pass at some kiosk at the airport, without having to pay $10?
It's Spirit, what do you expect? They make their money on burying you in fees.

comment Can I pass through the airport security with a de-activated Bazooka?
@Lohoris The point is the question was looking at a non-issue. It doesn't matter what BA would do as he won't get it there for them to do anything about it.

comment Will my ticket bought through cheap tickets work at a Chinese airport?
It's been years since I have even given them the e-ticket. We go to the counter for our flight and hand them our passports, they take our bags and give us our boarding passes. We always have it in our carryon but we've gotten out of the habit of handing it to them. Admittedly, this is Shanghai/PVG rather than Beijing.

Yup--third worlder, no travel history, apparently young, likely unmarried. Good luck getting a US visa!
