I’m 17 I’m supposed to be flying alone in a couple days and my mom won’t be there with me. Do I need an Id?

Travelers under 18 don't need an ID to get through security and travel domestically however being 17 if you have any form of ID such as a school ID it wouldn't hurt to have it but all you need to do is let the TSA agent know your age and you should be good to go.

Well put! There's also this article with additional info.

 

What are the ID requirements for minors? 

 

We look forward to seeing you onboard!
