What is a concourse pass? Can you escort a child or someone needing help to the gate?
Your airline may issue a concourse pass for someone to escort an unaccompanied minor child, an elderly person or someone with special needs through the security screening checkpoint and to the gate. You must still show valid government issued identification. Please contact your airline before your travel date to arrange a concourse pass. Authority to issue a concourse pass rests solely with the airline.

Can I take a prescription in my carry-on? What if it needs refrigeration?
We recommend that you carry all medications (and valuables) in your carry-on bag. Please adopt the 3-1-1 liquids rule--all liquids, gels, aerosols, creams and pastes must be 3.4 oz (100ml) or less per container, and containers must be stored in a 1-quart clear plastic zip-top bag. Medication in liquid form is allowed in carry-on bags in excess of 3.4 ounces; the traveler should inform the TSA officer of these medically necessary liquids and separate them from other belongings before screening begins. Passengers are allowed to bring medications in pill or other solid form through security screening checkpoints in unlimited amounts, as long as they are screened. If a passenger does not want a medication X-rayed, he or she may ask for an inspection instead. This request must be made before screening begins. You may keep your medication on ice until it’s time to process through screening. Once at screening, the ice will need to be dumped. You can get more ice at one of the post-screening restaurants.
