It is a risk.

You don't need a passport to fly to Hawaii if you are a US citizen. Technically outstanding warrants should only show up if a passport is scanned.

However, if your ID is run through a background check for any reason at the airport (new security checks, etc.), you do run the risk of having the warrant appear and being detained, and taken into custody.

I hope that helps!

Please let me know if you have any other questions. Also, please take a moment to rate me using the stars at the top of the page, as it's the only way experts are compensated for our time on the site. I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating of 3 stars or more (5 stars are always appreciated). The question won't close after rating, so you can still ask follow-up questions after. Thanks, ***** ***** it!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
