Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If you are not going through US Customs and Immigration and it is a domestic flight where all you do is go through TSA, they do not check criminal records of passengers flying on domestic flights. Thus, you would not have your criminal record checked on a domestic flight, so they would not find a warrant. The only way you would have an issue is if you do something to cause yourself to be stopped by the police and if they check your name.
