In this day and age, most airline security protocols include checking certain databases for passenger information (and is especially true for international flights). Therefore, if you have an outstanding warrant, more then likely your name will come up and you will not be able to board the plane for any flight (domestic or international). As a general rule, if you have a warrant for your arrest and it is discovered while you are attempting to travel, you will be arrested and taken into custody.
