Fast track security BOS

Does BOS have fast track security for BA pax (gold flying in CW)?

More generally, is there a 'fast-track security for premium pax' thread?

Thanks

Yes, there is and it is available also to other premium passengers of other airlines.

What does it matter if you are gold, you're flying in a premium cabin anyway !

What would be nice would be premium immigration at BOS

The US can be a very socialist place sometimes

True but the terminal is very very quiet (if you are heading for the BA dayflight back to the UK)

Indeed it is. I doubt anyone would have to spend more than 5 minutes getting through the TSA inspection, and even in the evenings it's a pretty calm place. I must admit I can't recall seeing a fast track in the evenings either (and I was there just a few days ago), but I have probably joined the shortest queue and got on with it. I guess if you have checked luggage then you get more specific instructions from the check-in staff.

It does. But when I used it (one busy evening) it was half the speed of the non-premium track

If it's not busy you don't gain anything by using it. If it is busy, they fill the premium line up with passengers from the non premium line. You can't win!

I've never waited longer than 2 mins in the BOS fasttrack lane. Having said that, the regular line has never looked that busy.

Its either not in use, or longer than the normal queue.. Don't worry its a short and painless one, but if you have the AM departure, quite a lots closed there anyway.
