T3 security for A gates ?

I am departing on an Allegiant flight from A gates and returning a couple of days later on WestJet toT3.

I want to park at T3 to make it quicker on the return. My final destination is closer to T3 too.

With a Mobile boarding pass, no bags to check and TSA precheck

in theory I think I can clear security at T3, catch the tram to D gates and then the other tram from D to the A gates

in practice do they allow you through security in T3 for A gates ?

I have done it at T3 with a T1 D gate BP but not A

anyone done this ?

Yes. I've gone through T3 with T1 BPs too many times to count. I've never been asked, but if ever questioned, I'd just say, "using the lounge at the D Gates."

Yes, and TSA is not supposed to deny you especially since all gates at LAS are now connected airside.

When I was questioned, I responded honestly. "I like the parking here better." And it wasn't really so much of a question as a comment by the TSA agent.
