I had no clue what to post this under.

My husband and I are planning a vacation to Florida for our anniversary. Usually, I have to put my maiden name on my ticket to match my passport. Do I still have to put my maiden name or what? Every time I've flown its been international so I don't know what they ask for in regards to ID.

If you're not flying internationally, then you don't need your passport to fly. The name on your ticket just has to match whatever piece of photo ID you're using to get on the plane (ex: drivers license).

If you're not flying internationally, then you don't need your passport to fly. The name on your ticket just has to match whatever piece of photo ID you're using to get on the plane (ex: drivers license).

That's about it, right there. Whether or not you're flying internationally or domestically, the name on your plane ticket/boarding pass needs to match the ID you're using. So if you have your maiden name on your driver's license (as well as your passport), make the arrangements in that name until you get a new DL and passport.

If you did get your surname changed on your passport (but your DL hadn't been changed yet) and you wanted to fly with your married name, you could use your passport when flying domestically. This is especially true of foreign passports. My wife was asked to present her Canadian passport when boarding a plane at BWI (she was not headed to Canada or anywhere outside the U.S., either), so it's good to keep it on you, just in case.

I also believe that if you did write your married name down on your ticket (but hadn't changed it on any form of ID), you could board a plane so long as you carried a copy of your marriage license with you. That would prove your marriage and subsequent name change. However, that would probably be more trouble that it's worth. It's simply easier to use your maiden name until you get at least one form of acceptable ID changed and then switch over to your married name when making airline reservations.
