Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I'm reviewing your post. Please be patient as I may need to research for you, and it also takes time to compose and type a reply.

Expert:  Zoey_ JD replied 13 days ago.

Typically, it should not be an issue. First of all, you don't have to go through customs to fly domestically. Also, a warrant on a low-level offense such as a traffic ticket is non-extraditable. The prosecutor would not be likely to alert TSA of something like this.

Still, the only 100% way to ensure it won't turn up would be to return on the warrant and take care of it before you fly.
