It says: "TSA includes names and personal identifying data on cleared individuals as additional information on the TSA watch lists."

So, basically, I have to carry this letter with me whenever I fly from now on.
So, my question is whether you are now able to check in online or use the kiosks or whether you still need to see a human being at checkin. If it's the latter, I don't see how that's an improvement. As it already stands, they issue my boarding passes immediately after verifying my birthday so the letter would not be worth the paper it's written on to me.
