What happens if you lose your driver's license and need to fly home?

Jump to last reply

On Saturday night I had a nightmare that I lost my driver's license & passport and I needed to fly some somewhere the next day. I woke up in a sweat.

Well guess what...yesterday that nightmare came true. :( I had to get home from DC on US Airways and lost my license at some point Monday night. I spent 1/2 this business trip making phone calls to the airport, car rental counter, hotel housekeeping and a sushi restaurant to see if they found my license. I had my boyfriend fax my passport to the hotel, twice (it never came through well enough to actually see that the photo was of me).

Well, after all of this I decided to go to the airport early to ask them what to do. They gave me a boarding pass and wrote "NO ID" on it in red. Going through security I was brought to a walled-off area where I waited while they very meticulously searched through my bags. Then I was "wanded" and patted down (female security officer...no biggie). The whole thing took maybe 5 minutes. I don't know what I was expecting, but I was VERY grateful to be allowed to fly. (In my nightmare I wasn't!)

Can anyone else share the story of what happened when they were caught at the airport without a photo ID? I wonder if the different airlines handle it differently.
