The Definitive "Delta - TSA Pre-Check" thread
 
Frequent DTW flyer.
Have Nexus and Global Entry.
Have entered my Global Entry # in DL Traveler info.
Received e-mail from Delta and opted in.

Do I need a further authorization to use TSA pre check line at DTW.
Is there a random authorization to use the lane indicated on my BP somewhere.
I have flown out of DTW at least 12 times since inception of program and have never been offered use of Pre Check line.

Can I just enter Pre Check line and take my chances.
Appeciate hearing what others experience has been at DTW.

Folks,
Please use this master thread for all of you comments and issues pertaining to Delta and the TSA Pre-Check as there is no reason to have multiple threads on the very same subject.
Thanks, RSSrsvp - Moderator

Your boarding pass will be scanned at the checkpoint. If you qualify for Pre Check, you will be directed to the appropriate line. Selection for this new screening is supposedly random, so you are not automatically granted entrance every time just because of your credentials.

So you opted-in twice: once as a TT member, and again as a Delta PM? Usually people opt-in using only one method. This probably won't matter, but it is unusual.

I hold both credentials as well and am 99% on going through pre-check through DTW. It is supposedly based on their scan of your BP. The one time was a flight to AMS. YMMV.

I have GE, Nexus & GM & am 50/50 at DTW.

Also, keep in mind the only checkpoint with a pre-check lane is the SkyPriority checkpoint on the north end of the upper level. None of the other checkpoints offer the option even if you are selected for it.

I'm not even sure you need to opt-in. I'm PM but haven't joined any of the NEXUS, GLOBAL plans but was selected in ATL on my last trip. Kinda surprised. The only membership I've had in the past was CLEAR (which hasn't come back to ATL yet).

I am in the same boat. Only Clear but have been sent to the "no take off shoes, take baggie out of suitcase, or take coat & belt off" lane both times I have actually had to clear TSA in ATL since they started this program. :D

I didn't say anything about opting in. My experience is the same as yours, minus CLEAR.

You "opt-in" by entering your Secure Flight Passenger Data in your profile and checking the box to consent to Delta storing it and sharing it with the TSA. If you received the email about the PreCheck program, you have been preselected based on your Delta status and do not need to fill in a Known Traveler Number. Just your name, gender, and birthdate.

Is PM/DM a requirement. I'm GM and have entered by GE number on my profile.

Only Domestic itineraries are eligible for this program.

Did you get any of the emails about the program? Initially, it seemed like only PM's and DM's got the invitations, but more recently, there are Golds who have reported getting the emails. Also, if you have GE or Nexus, I don't believe you need to be pre-selected.
