    I use my son’s GE card as proof of age for infant lap tickets. Usually in smaller airports a manager has to get involved as they probably don’t see them too often. I now carry a copy of his birth certificate, but never show it out of principle. It’s a legal identification card. It can be used to get into bars etc….. At least in the US

      We tried using my daughter’s GE card as proof of age for a lap infant at DCA (flying Southwest) once. I realized about ten minutes from the airport that we had forgotten her birth certificate copy and I knew we would miss the flight if we made the Uber turn around.

      I just happened to have her GE card so I figured I would try to use it while I waited to hear back from a friend to see if she could use the extra key we left her to go into our house and send me a picture of her passport.

      We were denied and when we asked to talk to a supervisor, she denied us as well. They claimed that it wasn’t a legal document even though we explained to them that it was issued by a government agency…

      This was about a year ago so maybe they would be more familiar with the cards now.

      What was even more infuriating was that she was pretty obviously not even close to two as she was still under one.

      We finally got the photo of the passport and barely made the flight. Now I keep a copy of her birth certificate in my travel wallet and a photo of her passport on my phone.
