Hello. No one here can say whether or not any particular person would indeed be arrested at the airport but it is safe to say a person with a felony warrant runs a very high risk of arrest. TSA does check passenger lists prior to issuing boarding passes. All the best.
If they check the NCIC system and find the warrant, they will be obligated to arrest you on the spot.
The information provided in this answer does not create an attorney-client relationship and is not considered to be legal advice. Mr. Leroi answers questions on Avvo because he strongly believes in public service from his years as a judge, magistrate, and prosecutor. If you need to ask any follow up questions because my answer did not fully address your question, feel free to call Chris or post an additional question. Thank you.
If you are checked, the warrant will show up and you can be taken into custody and held until an extradition decision is made if you are in a different state.
