5 REASONS YOU COULD GET DENIED BOARDING ON AN INTERNATIONAL FLIGHT.
1.) Passport is expired. Your passport is close to being expired. (many countries require your passport to be valid for up to six months.) 2.) Passport is mutilated. If your passport has been washed, torn, or just not taken care of, you will be denied boarding! Even in the middle of a trip, the airline can deny boarding. Other countries will send you back if it is not a readable passport. GET A NEW ONE! 3.) Passport card. NOT VALID FOR AIR TRAVAEL! 4.) Intoxicated, if you take medicine or drink to the point that you do not understand instructions, you will be denied boarding. That is for your safety as well as the safety of other travelers. 5.) You miss bag cut-off. If you do not check in at least an hour prior, you will be denied boarding. The airline must verify you have the proper documents.
