Does anyone else feel like too many people have TSA PreCheck nowadays?

In the glorious old days, I could breeze by security in <5 minutes. But recently I’ve been noticing more amateur travelers holding up the line since they’re just slow, don’t know the rules, etc. Now it takes >10min on a random Tuesday at like 5am!

I would gladly pay more or subject myself to a more rigorous selection process. Part of the process should require a test on how fast you can move through security.

Yeah, sounds like you’re asking for Clear. Ngl, it’s definitely worth it.

Sometimes it’s faster to go into regular security line than it is to go through pre check line in some airports

The analyst is calling people amateur, this must be /s

The end goal is for everyone who flies to have some version of “precheck”, that was and is the original intention of the program

What airport are you typically flying out of? I’m in ATL and basically never wait and clear would add zero value.

ATL system is the worst. Clear helps a little. But Thursday night departures are torture, the x-ray system is a failure. 20-45 mi uses from getting line to getting your bag from the x-ray is common.

That’s exactly why I got clear.

I’m with you OP - flew out of SFO this afternoon.. the display said TSA 15 mins, General line 10 mins.. I’m not kidding.. not only does everyone have TSA, the number of people that get in the TSA line only to be told by the agent that they don’t have pre-check is appalling.. like everyone forgot how this works..

Is 5-10 mins really that much of an annoyance that you post about it?

It should have been frozen like 7 years ago, same for clear

At thr Denver airport it seemed like the pre check line was longer than the general this morning lol

Which credit card offers clear for free lmao

If you’re really such an experienced traveler as Analyst says they are, Clear should likely be free through your airline (Delta Diamond here).

Let's reframe the discussion. I think it isn't so much that there are too many people with precheck, it is that airports don't dedicate enough resources to service tsa precheck customers.

Or they could apply those same resources to just getting everyone through security more efficiently and effectively

“Amateur travelers” lol

Hey start calling them “the others”

Anyone feel like you’ve become less conversationally/emotionally intelligent after working in big law? Before BL I used to be so charismatic, entertaining, and quick-witted, which I believe helped me get the job. Now I’m just numb to anything but work.
