My dh and my ds age 15 are leaving tomorrow for a 2 week trip to Alaska. My dh has his license for ID, but what about my 15 yo? We flew to AK in 2006 and our dc just had birth certificates. Is that all he will need tomorrow?

This was planned last minute, so I hope he gets on the plane!

When my 14yo went to CA last summer she had to have a photo ID to get on the plane. Not sure if things have changed since then. :unsure:
