AA Airport / Concourse TSA Pre-Check / Precheck Hours [only]

Does anyone know how late PreCheck is open at AA ORD?

I have yet to see it closed whilst the F line is open.

Probably the latest I've seen recently is c.8-9pm.

Thanks. I have a 10:30PM flight tomorrow (fairly late) and am coming from a dinner so I'll probably be going through between 9:30-10.

I think it depends on staffing and day of the week. For evening flights, I've been getting to the airport at 7-7:15pm and later, it is already closed. The upside is the waits for the regular checkpoint aren't that bad at those hours.

Was the second to last person to get through the F line (and the TSA Pre line closed at the same time) at 7:15 p.m. on Sunday. It seems people expect it to be open until 7:30. There was a lot of grumbling by passengers turned away at the TSA staff. Eventually a supervisor was called out by a passenger who was POed.

Rather than have a separate thread for each PreCheck location hours, this thread has been rededicated to the times for all AA PreCheck locations, retitled, and the post titled with the original thread title.

All posts prior to this one are about ORD and the AA PreCheck location hours.

Thank you,

Thanks! Makes sense to have a dedicated thread to PreCheck hours.

To close the loop on ORD - went through on 8/2 around 9:40PM or so. Got LLL but no PreCheck line operating.

Not sure why. Since PreCheck selection is not a given (particularly at ORD), it doesn't seem to me to make any sense to select flights based on the possibility of getting PreCheck. In addition, there are no posted hours, as far as we know, hours vary from day to day. Notice that DillMan (post #2) is seeing it open at 8-9 PM, while DataPlumber is seeing it closed at 7-7:15. I don't see how that information helps anybody.

Of course, if we get several hundred posts like this on every PreCheck location, then we'll have...well, nothing other than a giant confusing mess. PreCheck either will be open when we get there, or it won't. If it isn't, no amount of postings on FT will change that.

Sorry for the bump here. AFAIK, it closes at 7 PM at ORD, but I could very well be wrong and others in this thread have clearly gone through later than that.

I actually asked them when I went through last week and was told it closes every day (including sat and Sun) at 7:20 pm. They said sometimes they close it as early as 7:15

Pretty sure SFO closes at 5:00PM. It sucks, particularly if you're just rolling in for the 6:00PM to ORD.

I'm pretty sure that pre-check at JFK (AA) T8 is officially open from early morning until late in the evening, a few months ago I arrived at JFK around 11:00 am--a period where AA has very few flights. Pre-check closed, even the priority access lane(s) were closed. There were so few people that they had only one lane open and that had 5 or 6 people waiting to be checked.

It does IME. I got there at 4:30 for my 9:30 something red-eye to Miami just so I didn't have to go through the normal hassle. Pre-check matters that much to me, yes.
