New air travel rules start on nov 1, 2010

Air travelers should plan on showing up earlier at the airport starting on Nov 1st 2010 & beyond as new rules kin in. The Transportation Security Administration may deny boarding to travelers who do not provide their gender, date of birth and full name to their airline within 72 hours of a flight's departure, starting Nov. 1.

Experts urge travelers to double-check their personal information with their airline and to give themselves extra time to pass through security since the new regulations could lead to boarding delays.

When in doubt check with TSA before you pack and/or head to the airport!

Happy travels!
