Details about Priority Security Lines

Atlanta - Near Delta Elite Check-in. ATL has an "express lane" for 1st/Biz Class ticket holders and "Gold" FF program members.

Boston - second leftmost line (only marked down near rge security checkpoint so it is hard to identify)
Priority lane to the left leading to the UA gates (Term C, gates 12-21) is for 1st, Business, and *A Gold. I've also seen them handle PAX in wheelchairs.

Charlotte, NC - @ checkpoint B for US Airways Preferred Members. Does it work for UA 1P? Please report.

Chicago - left side

Denver - lines for 2P and above is to the right as you are entering the maze

Dulles - left side [International Terminal]

Honolulu - right side of security checkpoint, "gold lane" allows F and sometimes, depending on the whim of the screener, other elites.

Houston

Las Vegas - the elite security line for terminals C/D is marked "First Class" - there is no sign specifying elite levels. However, FTers experience indicates the screeners will allow any elite level to pass into the "First Class" line

London Heathrow - Terminal 3: After check-in on ground level, go upstairs to Departures and Fast Track security screening is to the right of the main security checks.
Available to pax ticketed in First and Business, so if your upgrade is not cleared at the check-in, you can't use it.
Your status is not enough for privilege of faster screening, however if asked nicely check-in agents would stick the red dot on your ticket allowing Fast Track access.

Los Angeles - Enter lobby in Terminal Six; elite line is to the far right. Sometimes line upstairs is faster according to TSA.

Minneapolis - leftmost security lane; not always manned

Nashville - Left side with CO/NW "Elite Access" sign in front of it, and below it says, "And elite members of other airlines".

New York [JFK] - far right (but it is not always open, especially first thing in the AM.)

Philadelphia - Access thru Terminal C
Terminal D at PHL where United is located doesn't have a premier line. However, terminal C does and it is only a short walk to this terminal.

Phoenix

Portland, Oregon

Providence, Rhode Island - All elites can use WN Business Select Fast Lane (See Post 368)

Reno

San Diego - Far left of UA/AS checkin area http://flyertalk.com/forum/showpost....&postcount=174

San Francisco
F,B,1K, GS: adjacent to position #49 from 5:00AM – 6:00PM, and near position #48 from 6:00PM – 11:00PM
1P, 2P, 3P, *A Gold, *A Silver: adjacent to position #49 from 5:00AM – 6:00PM

Seattle - Right Side

Washington, DC [DCA]

Please post information on priority security lines

Please post airports with priority security lines, the location and the minimum threshold for access.

My home airport doesn't have a priority security line so I have little knowledge, but would find it useful when returning from my destination. I think others would also.

Also provide corrections to inaccurate information.

Thank you.

PHL Quick Access

Terminal D at PHL where United is located doesn't have a premier line. However, terminal C does and it is only a short walk to this terminal. When D is long, I usually go to C. The RCC is located midway between D and C so it is really not that different to use C and then just head to the RCC!!! I usually only have to show my ticket or my *G card.

MHT does not have one, but the line is often shorter if you use the security on the same level as check in (go to the right as you're facing the United counter) rather than the security stations upstairs.

In Denver, unless there's a super premium line (and I do think there's something there, but it might be for F or employees), the lines for 2P and above is to the right as you are entering the maze--not the left.
