LAX Launches Pilot Program For Travelers To Pre-Schedule TSA Screening

LAX Launches Pilot Program For Travelers To Pre-Schedule TSA Screening
LAX announced a pilot program today for United Airlines travelers departing from terminals 7 and 8 to pre-schedule a 15-minute window to go through the security screening checkpoint.

The LAX Fast Lane program will be available from 6:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. for 90 days, ending on Jan. 18, 2022. Spots can be reserved up to 24 hours before departure, and travelers must select a time frame that is at least an hour before the flight leaves.

***
The pilot program is free and optional for travelers. Once a time frame is selected, passengers will receive a QR code to show at the security checkpoint, where they'll be allowed into a reserved screening lane.

***
To schedule an appointment go to this website.

Doesn't the use of the LAX Fast Lane program for TSA screening at T7 preclude getting PreCheck benefits when doing so?

Yes, it does.

From the FAQs on the LAX Fast Lane website: "[T]he LAX Fast Lane pilot is only available to general screening passengers to help provide a better screening experience for those without a trusted traveler program and create efficiency where we have the highest demand."

LA(X) Fast Lane - where you didn't get/ask for Pre but are willing to sign up on a website anyway.

Seems redundant... just get Precheck or Clear which works at every airport, not just LAX. Not sure I understand the point of this program
