(UNDATED) - You may be asked your birth date and gender when making an airline reservation.

It's the latest step in the phased-in "Secure Flight" program which transfers responsibility for cross-checking with lists of suspected terrorists from the airlines to the Transportation Security Administration.

TSA Spokesperson Ann Davis says the move should "ensure more consistency across the board."
