Connecting flight question?
I found a flight that goes from Chicago O'Hare to Anchorage Ted Stevens via Vancouver international. My question is that will I need a passport if I'll just be catching a connecting flight in Canada even if I'm not leaving the airport?

Is it the same flight number all the way through. Unless it is just a fuel stop (second freedom) you will probably have to change planes and clear Canadian customs. Even if it is just a fuel stop you might have to clear customs if your flight is cancelled or delayed. You don't need a passport to enter Canada if you are a US citizen or resident alien (green card), just proof of citizenship or the green card. You will need a passport to re-enter the US. You'll re-clear US customs and immigration in Vancouver airport. Check with the airline before you leave for the airport.
Yes, you will need your passport!!!!! The airline will not allow you to bord the original flight in ORD if you dont have one!
