Hi and Welcome to Just Answer. I will be the expert that will be helping you today. I look forward to helping you solve your problem.


Yes, you should be able to. When you check in and go through security, they are looking for people on the "no fly" list. Traveling on a domestic flight, should not result in your arrest. However, if for some reason you are stopped by the police and they run your name, the warrant would likely appear. That reason would likely be a result of something you do, outside of going through the normal process at the airport.

Yes, as long as you are not leaving the country, it would not likely be something that is alerted to upon check in and going through security. However, it is something which should eventually be dealt with and will not go away. Thank you for allowing me to answer your question.
