Other airlines’ passengers may not be asked to provide the additional information immediately.
The agency’s goal is to vet all passengers on domestic airline flights by early 2010 and all passengers on international airline flights into, out of or over the United States by the end of 2010, shifting responsibility for matching passenger manifests to terrorist watch lists from airlines to TSA.
Back in May, airlines started asking passengers to provide their full name when booking flights. Some, including AirTran, have already invited passengers to add a birthdate and gender to frequent flier profiles.
Delta said passengers who have run into problems with watch lists and got redress numbers from TSA can also provide that information.
