My father's name was on the no-fly list and it took 20-30 minutes every time he checked in for a flight to compare his date of birth and other information with some "central database" (a supervisor had to call someone to access this) to make sure it didn't match. Even after he was cleared he would always get SSSS and it was never possible for him to check-in online. They would also always open up his bag when he arrived from overseas. He put up with this for a year until we contacted our congressman who contacted the TSA to get him off of there.
