Baby identification - domestic flights

Jump to last reply

We flew recently from California to Washington State with our daughter, her husband, and their 18-month-old baby. We did not have a reserved seat for the baby. The parents brought along the baby's passport, but they were never required to show it. Never were there any questions asked regarding the identity of the baby, or whether they were actually related or had the right to fly with the child.

On the return leg of the trip, I went through a separate security line than my daughter and her husband - I carried the baby, and was never questioned as to whose child it was.

I am curious - is there no ID required to show who a baby is? This seems crazy to me.
