Is CLEAR going to expand or fail?

Hi, sorry if thereís another thread already but ďclearĒ is tough to search for! Since I got CLEAR maybe 12-18 months ago it hasnít added a single airport and remains in just some terminals at many. The fact that Delta owns a stake in it and CLEAR isnít available in T4 at JFK is mind boggling. So.. any thoughts on whether it will eventually be in more airports / terminals or just fold? (I know there are a few airports where itís a godsend but I think itís a small small majority of CLEAR members that can benefit with any regularity.)

Ok, seasoned frequent flyer from Canada... is this related to NEXUS/GE? What is this? Sounds like I'm missing out on something.

You are indeed missing out on the most wondrous experience ... you are greeted at the terminal with singing choirs ... and float through to your gate unimpeded by the great unwashed masses.
CLEAR is a commercial (private) competitor to TSAPre. 0.05 second Google search ... https://www.clearme.com/home

Which illustrates why I think it will fail. Very low awareness doesn't typically lead to great success.
