D on Boarding Pass

Ive recently checked in online for a Transatlantic flight departing Dublin tomorrow and my boarding pass (both in the app and on website) has the letter D printed on it.

Has anyone had this before or know what this means/stands for?

Many thanks!

Its all good, it is security related for the US CPB folks

Lets just say not having D will slow you down

Thanks ROKNA - feared it was along the lines of the dreaded SSSS!

I think its D for Doire. I'm originally from Omagh and I always get a T on mine

If SSSS arises you typically would not be able to check in online and have to check in at airport.

Its part of the streamlined security operating for CBP to improve flow and reduce congestion. Note also the new setup in T2 where US bound passengers are directed to specific queue for screening. All US bound passengers should go through a backscatter machine and hand luggage luggage through a 4D scanner

There are no backscatter machines in DUB or anywhere else in the country, they've been banned in the EU since 2011.

It's also against EU law for anyone to be forced to go in a body scanner, you are entitled to request a hand search if you prefer.

I believe D stands for Departing Dublin and T stands for Transferring.

Passengers with T will need to undergo additional security screening in the basement.
