The most common problems are that their papers are expired or blurred, and children are 14 years old but have not yet made ID or new identity cards. Moreover, children under 14 years old only bring photocopies of birth certificates, and even some passengers do not bring documents for identification.
Many passengers did not check their identifications at home before going to the airport, only when did they arrive at the check-in counters at the airport, they discovered that they forgot to bring their documents for identification; accordingly, they missed the flight.
