Just did it, happened to know the gender and the probable name so I used it, made up birth date. Not that it mattered because it was a domestic flight and nobody checked any ID for baby (good thing too, because we didn't have any!)...

Domestic is very different then an international flight where the infant actually has an eticket # and needs to show passport.

Domestic you could have just showed up at the airport and had the infant added then.
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

Which is why I included that tidbit of information.

Not if you get the infant a seat, which is what I did.

True. Well children do not need ID to travel dometically, so

True, as per the TSA.
However, airlines reserve the right to require 'proof of age'. Although that probably only pertains to lap children (to verify they are actually under 2) but they don't specify that.

Proof age is only for lap children.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Has anyone had experience with Delta and car seats? Going JFK-tlv, bought a seat for 2-month-old. Have a car seat with an approved airplane sticker on it, usually, fly through Europe and have never had an issue. Delta, on the other hand, wouldn't surprise me if they tried to stop me. any advice and if i should bring some proof that i can?

Flew to BCN and back, with a car seat on DL. No issues.

Booked an international flight several months ago and now when going to add lap child Delta is saying I need to pay 10% of current price which is 5x what I had paid. Any suggestions or ways around this?

Keep in mind, taxes are full price, and the 10% is of base fare. I booked a $400 ticket with DL and paid $90 for a lap child. The only thing you can do is wait in hopes the price drops, or pay the current price.
