Honestly I used to avoid going through security at terminal C like the plague when I lived there, especially early in the morning if I could help it. A was usually pretty good and D was always fast

I landed at Dallas a little after that. Exited through the security checkpoint by baggage claim C-31 and there was nobody there. Its a very small checkpoint so I dont know if they had precheck.

Nope Pre-Check in C is C21, other pre-checks at DFW are in A21, D22, D30, and E16. None in B for some reason.

C tends to be way worse than the other terminals. Either start at adjacent A or E and / or consider investing in CLEAR for access at E.

Went through DFW C-PRE at 5:35 and there were only two people in front of me... I do agree though that C is usually the worst, followed by A.. D and E I usually fly right through.

Ive only actually been through the B checkpoint once as I rarely fly Eagle out of DFW.

Yep, I ALWAYS avoid going through security at C. Flew out of DFW this morning. Wife tried correcting me when I told the driver to drop us off at A21, as our departure gate was C26. I told her we were going via A. I usually prefer D, but since our shuttle was entering through the north entrance, and included another passenger who was going to C, I opted for the first/closest best option, as we were slightly tight on time.

The DFW airport page even has the following message: Terminal C - TSA Checkpoints at Terminal C experience increased wait times during weekday hours of 6 to 8 a.m. Travelers may check in at Terminal A or D and ride Skylink to their gate.

It sucks that CLEAR in only in E. I have CLEAR and never use it at my home airport (DFW). I generally just go to D, because there is rarely ever more than 3 people in line. If I lived on the south side of the airport, I would probably use E, every time, since it would be the first terminal.

Correct it on the phone prior to submittal: find your photo in the Camera Roll, click Edit, then use the Rotate control that's second-to-the-left on the bottom, then Done, and it will replace the image in the Camera Roll with the rotated one.

Security pounced on a girl taking a photo of the queues when I was there in December. They grabbed her phone and deleted the photo, saying it wasn't allowed !

they grabbed her phone and deleted the photo..as in they physically took custody of the phone by force and deleted it or did they ask the girl to delete the photo? The former would be a crime, and I'd happily miss my flight if needed to have that addressed by actual law enforcement, the later I'd probably say ok to just placate the TSA because I'm not a moron and know it will go to the "Recently Deleted" album on my IPhone and be promptly restored.

Every time they send me a post-use survey I whine PLEASE ADD OTHER DFW TERMINALS... maybe one day

Thanks. It appears normal in my iphone gallery so I will tilt it 1/4 counterclockwise before submitting.
