JFK premium security queue jumping

Interesting situation in JFK this evening. A queue of some 30-40 passengers in the premium (club, first, GCH, LCY) security area and a lady guides a couple jumping the queue right to the TSA agent and says "concorde room".

Never experienced this before. As I have the CCR card now can I jump the queue too?

It's for F passengers. See this thread from yesterday from someone who was not able to jump the queue (he didn't ask):

Yeah, that's the only reason I use the checkin even when not checking bags, they always take me to the front.

Never happened to me, even when I was in F!

It was edible, but as we've agreed with KARFA, the presentation was... well, interesting.

Pushed back pretty much on time. Perhaps my JFK bad luck streak is actually broken!

I am beginning to think that this is your standard 'uniform'!

I usually find thorough preparation helps. Staying hydrated is #1, whether you're in Antarctica or the Mojave.
