Most pax on US or CA passports must have six months remaining validity on them in order to fly just about anywhere. When BREXIT finally takes hold, the Brits will be held to the same requirements as inn North America.

Yes, Colin is correct. Citizens of the U.K. only need a passport valid for their intended period of stay in the USA. The six month requirement is no longer applicable.
