Photo ID isnt "required" per-se. Ive boarded 3 Delta flights without
showing any form of photo ID, only a credit card. I've also been able to
have my younger brother board a plane with NO id whatsoever, not even
showing proof of name.

Yes.  Photo identification to get your tickets, period, the end.

Huh? You dont need any photo id to get tickets.
You need it to get on the plane.


OK.  You need photo-id to get your boarding pass.  Since I always use
e-tickets, the boarding pass is the only "paper" involved.
