My husband and I booked tickets on Virgin Australia from Sydney to Perth and I'm wondering if I'll be okay to pass through security and check in using only my US Driver's License.
I ask because I notice that the flight is a "Virgin Australia International Flight" despite it being only from Sydney to Perth. The name on my passport is still my maiden name (which is how I booked all my international flights), however this interstate flight was booked using my married name, which is what appears on my drivers license and all of my credit cards.
I had intended to update the name on my international flights (from my maiden name to my married name) once the name change paperwork was finalized, however when I called to make the change United suggested it I leave it as is to avoid any issues (since the flight involves multiple legs and some alliance airlines.) At this point though, I had already booked the interstate flight using my new married name.
I can update my name with Virgin Australia but it'll cost more than what I paid for the ticket originally so, if possible, I'd rather leave it as is. I was planning on bringing a photocopy of my marriage license so, if needed, I could show why my passport name doesn't match all of my other forms of ID.
