Recent experience with TSA pre-check

Jump to last reply

I know many have commented on this, and thought I'd give my recent experience. When we went to Japan in November, the pre-check line and the regular line were both equally long, but the pre-check just took less time (no taking off shoes, removing laptops, etc). It was nice to have but didn't make a big difference.

When we flew to Kauai from Seattle at the beginning of March, the pre-check line was shorter and moved faster but we really noticed the difference on our return from Kauai. Anyone who regularly flies from Kauai knows that the lines are very long and that there are so many infrequent travelers that the lines move very slowly. This time it was a pleasure to get to into the pre-check line - short, moved fast, it made flying easy again!

I think pre-check will become more valuable as more airports are added to the list of those offering pre-check.
