Do-not-fly list passengers complain

The FBI has a secret do-not-fly list; if your name is on it you will have terrible difficulty getting on a plane. Many common names are on the list, and there's no way to get off it once your name is on. Here's a collection of passenger complaints. If somebody with a similar name to yours gets on that list, about the only thing you can do is legally change your name to something else. Otherwise you never know when or if you'll be allowed to board a plane.

Even if your name is "Ted Kennedy".
