When Qualified, PreCheck Speeds Fliers Thru Security


With year-end super-busy holiday air traffic and jammed check-in lines, senior flyers should consider this new go-to-the-head-of-the-line gimmick. Called the TSA PreCheck system, and costing $100, it now permits some pre-security approved airline passengers to get to their aircraft more quickly.

After their status is confirmed, the privileged few are allowed to keep shoes, belt and coats on. They may also carry laptop computers and eligible personal liquids and gels in carry-ons. The only negative could be enduring the dirty looks and curses of the poor peasants who must wait in the long security lines as the special boarders sail past them.

If eligible passengers have kids under 12 with them, all can go through PreCheck. To keep up with the constantly changing status of PreCheck, when booking new flights, always review requirements with your favorite hometown or online travel agency. It may also be expedient to call the airline directly at least 24 hours before your departure to make sure your lofty status is on record.
