You will almost certainly be unable to board a flight to the US with your EDL, since it is explicitly prohibited by the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative, which brought EDLs into being in the first place. You could in theory get an emergency passport at a US consulate, but from your description of your location you seem to be closer to airports in Alaska ...

Unfortunately this pretty common behavior for the Turkish Airlines website, especially since they "upgraded" it a year or two back. You can try using a different browser or using incognito mode, but odds are you'll hit the same problem again. In general if you're getting an error like this the only option will be to contact Turkish airlines directly, or if ...

Typically the standard ...

In this case, it's the purpose and location of the trip that was annotated. It is not binding on either the traveler or the CBP officer who will inspect the traveler at the port of entry. This type of annotation is made under 9 FAM ...

I have done that many times, with many airlines (although not with BA), and it was never an issue. Generally, if you have a valid ticket, the airline gladly sells you additional luggage allowance, that cost you between 30 and 120 $ per leg, rarely more. You can also simply show up with luggage, and pay at the check-in counter, but many airlines take a ...

'Secure' applies to the TSA's understanding of 'free of weapons and other stuff that is not allowed to be carried on an airplane'. It has no relation to 'crime-secure' or even 'crime-reduced'. It is a different question if thieves would consider this a good area to work in; as they would have to show an ID when entering, and will probably be video-recorded ...
