A driver license or the state ID are the easiest way for me to travel domestically

  2. Sentri / Nexus
  3. Global Entry / Trusted Traveler / TSA Pre-Check

None of the above work ... so 'Bring your passport'
Under what circumstances would I "not" carry my passport, with clear plastic cover with a little slot in back for my NEXUS card, in this case? (Just for others' references, NEXUS = SENTRI = Global Entry (and usually) facilitates Trusted Traveler and TSA Pre).

That would be just stupid, I don't care what they claimed prior. I had a snag at SeaTac the other day that was totally unexpected, thank you Delta, and I have the distinct impression my passport was just as interesting to the airline people as the card.

To feel oppressed and have the opportunity to complain about TSA?

Well, I just flew out of SEA with my NEXUS card for the first time. The problem wasn't with using the card for ID, it was that the TT numbers weren't on my husband's and daughter's boarding passes, so got rejected. Got that fixed at the airport and were able to go through expedited screening out of KOA with our NEXUS cards as ID and TT numbers on the boarding passes, no problem.

I use my military ID for domestic flying and my passport for international travel. My driver's license is never used in my travels other than to drive with. It is not Real ID compliant and I have no plans for it to be.

No need to get Real Id: since you still have to show birth certificate or passport when your Real Id expires anyway when you move to another state or have lived in another state. When you moved to another state and apply for their ID or license after your previous Real ID expired, you have to show your documents again like passport or birth certificate. Just take passport to fly.

I have been using a regular U.S Passport so I assume that I don't need to worry about having an enhanced driver's license.

Passport card. Just as big as a DL. Great 1st form of ID.
Global Entry. Also just as big as DL. Great 2nd form of ID.

Or just don't bring any ID, and submit to invasive finger in butthole TSA screening.
