Premier Access Boarding Pass?


I just checked in to my flight, and my boarding pass says "Premier Access." I don't have any status on United (general member), but I do have the United Chase MileagePlus Explorer card.

Does this mean I get to use the Premier Access security line at the airport?

According to:

I should only get the "Premier Access boarding" privilege, as a card holder. However, how will TSA know that I'm not supposed to be using the Premier Access security line?

Is boarding group 5 ahead of general boarding?

What about Premier Access check-in? Can I use that if my boarding pass says Premier Access?

1. No.

2. You get Priority Boarding, not Premier Boarding as they are different.

Not TSA, but those airport staff will check your boarding pass group to make sure you can use the security line.

3. Yes - but you still have a large group of elites before you.

4. No - The sign will clearly say who can - and GAs do check credentials.
