TSA Pre-Check Clarification

Jump to last reply

We have discussed this in the past and come to the conclusion that Trusted Traveler/Global Entry and TSA pre-check would be reciprocal. But, Southwest just sent me an email I'd like to share. I recently reserved a ticket on Southwest ("SW"). When the first trip info came along via email, there was no TSA pre-check indication.

Because I belong to the Trusted Traveler/Global Entry national program, I emailed SW to make certain the TSA pre-check designation would appear on my final boarding pass. Here's is a portion of SW's reply:

"Keep in mind that the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) decides who is eligible for PreCheck on a per-flight segment basis, and no one is guaranteed expedited screening, even when a KTN is entered in the reservation."

'KTN' is for Known Traveller Number. SO, please make certain that you get the designation. In our discussion here, we thought that Global Entry automatically enrolled one for TSA pre-check.

It would be annoying to have to pay $85 in addition to the $100 already spent!
