You can board a flight without a passport, TSA will ask a bunch of questions and you should be set.

Yup, I just had this issue a couple months ago.
The supervisor just asked a bunch of ┐arbitrary? questions and then let me through with an extra pat down and baggage check.

Took about 10min total, but I was in the PreCheck line...

I actually find it disturbing that it's possible to pass through security without an ID

Well you can vote without one, and some airlines are voicing their opposition on voter ID laws

I just booked
ORD - JFK on DL using DL miles. Basic Economy - Arrives in JFK at 9:55 AM
JFK - LHR on VS using VS miles. Classic Economy - Departs JFK same day at 7PM.

Is there a way to marry these 2 segments so that:
1) I can get free checked luggage on the ORD - JFK segment,
2) I can check luggage straight from ORD to LHR
3) If the answer to no. 2 is negative, will I be able to check my luggage to LHR upon arrival in JFK in the morning?
4) Would rebooking segment 1 as a regular economy ticket make any difference to any of the above?

1) No
2) You can check the bag straight to LHR without marrying the segments. Just ask them at check in at ORD.
3) n/a
4) No

If in business class, you can also call to request a kosher fish meal (as opposed to beef/chicken).
Any other airlines that give fish?

Do all the emirates flights currently from jfk to dxb have the old angle flat seats in business including the 777 with the new game changers in first?
Sorry I don't have any snarky line for this space

Booked with DL, call DL.
You may be able to view alternative options to change to online on Delta.com under Manage Booking.
