kids need id?

New Arrival

Hi I am traveling next week w/ my 3 younger kids. Will I need to bring any kind of identification for them? They all have purchased tickets- not the child fare (which I had no idea was a thing until after I purchased our tickets!!)

No ID is required for minor children, unless under age 2 flying as a lap child.


FYI, "Child Fares" are generally much more expensive than Wanna Get Away fares available online. They are a discount off the "refundable" Anytime fare.
