I did go through the PreCheck line as instructed, but I knew instantly that something was up when the screener directed me to it without the magic button being pushed at all. At DEN, the magic arrow...

Here's what happens if you turn around after not getting PreCheck

At DEN this morning, I approached the A Skybridge checkpoint, the screener standing at the entrance to the line pushed the magic button and directed me to the non-PreCheck lanes. I looked up and saw...

I know, and I love the Skybridge for that reason, but if there's no PreCheck there, I'd rather take my chances downstairs then walk away if I don't get the happy arrow. Assuming, of course, that...

PreCheck Selector--walk away if you don't get it?

Simple question: at Denver, the line for the A Skybridge checkpoint is usually much shorter and quicker than the line for the checkpoint downstairs with precheck. Granted, I haven't been on the...

Need help w/SkyMiles Marketplace and Gold Amex

So I went to close out my Gold Delta Amex because, well, I don't fly Delta anymore, and I didn't need to eat the fee going forward. The rep on the phone was very helpful, but she left out the part...

Easy way around the few times I've encountered one post-checkpoint: pretend my cell phone just rang, take the call, and walk away. I even got to shush a two-striper who tried to get in my face as I...

Sorry, no TSO would EVER be allowed to touch my pet without my hands on the dog at all times. Not that my dog would let anyone other than someone he knows carry him around anyway. Family members and...

The owner can't hold the dog in the scanner, nor can the dog be put through X-ray. What are they supposed to do?

Flying into MCI tomorrow and out on Thursday on F9. Does the F9 gate have AIT on it, and if so, has it been upgraded to MMW, or is it BKSX?

This. I have been told a couple dozen or so times to state my name. My answer has always been: "No." After being momentarily taken aback, the TSOs typically just shrugged and let me through. That's...

So when I tell the BDO that my itinerary and reasons for traveling are none of their business, will I still be allowed to go through PreCheck?

This program is as big a load of crock as the TSA's...

Years ago, JAX-GNV on a US DHC-8-100. Four people on board: the pilot, the FO, the FA and myself. It was the first leg of a JAX-GNV-CLT tag route, and the plane filled once we got to GNV.

I don't go through BKSX airports often (and that's by design). When I do, I refuse to go through the scanner for any reason. It gets me a lot of huffing and puffing from the one-striper who has to go...

Granted, I haven't been through SAN in a couple of years, but wouldn't MMWs be a pretty tight fit in there?

BS. Straight BS. Writing "SSSS" on the boarding pass in pen doesn't bat an eye anymore. SSSS data is hard-coded into the boarding pass barcode, so it flags at the gate.

Now, that's not to say a...

I stopped checking any small bottles of alcoholic beverage for consumption in the hotel room. 3/4ths of the time or so, they'd be missing from my bag with an inspection notice in there.

Promo code wasn't working for me this afternoon when I booked. It's a short flight at the end of the year, so not a huge deal, but weird nonetheless.

Same here. The box cutters that the hijackers used would've made it past AIT even more easily than they made it past the metal detectors on Sep. 11.

Limited service to east coast from Denver?

Random changes of heart are just another layer of my own personal security.

Also, I'd have opted out in the "no opt-out" lane as well. I was in that lane and intending to opt out before I heard...
