    If your flying business class, there is typically a much shorter line for security check in. That has saved me a few times trying to make a connecting flight. Global Entry sounds like something I need to do.

    What is the likelihood most flyers end up with some prioritized status? Another pricing tier to reestablish the pecking order?

    Exactly. I think Clear is becoming the new TSApre. Think Newark at rush hour.

    Danno get TSA Precheck. The kid(s) come with you through the nice easy line every time. You’ll be very happy spending that $85.

    I got it first a long time ago. Wife has it now too. Since kiddo is 17.5 now, just took her for her own KTN (known traveler number) Precheck appointment so when she starts to fly (home from college) she’s good to go.

    Again, if you’re going to take any international flights, do Global Entry instead. $15 more for much easier entry through immigration and customs.

    The two passport thing isn't a problem for nexus. Anyone born in the US will have to use USA as the "issuing country" but other than that they don't care.

    Anything else?
    From what I see from SLC departures, the Clear guys jump in front of us Precheckers and walk right through with shoes on through the same precheck scanners.

    Sorry Danno and ZZZ, yep spend the extra $15 for Global. I’ll get that next renewal.

    Clear is independent of precheck. Once you get through Clear you either go to the regular TSA or precheck lines. Some airports like O'Hare have separate clear lines leading to either regular or pre.

    No, it isn't true. You may get lucky and get full family pre check on the same booking, but it isn't a given. Kids under 12 can go with an adult with pre check. Over 12 and they need their own pre check to be guaranteed. I've flown with my wife and teenagers on my same booking multiple times and none have ever gotten pre check with me.

    My daughter has gotten precheck with either mom or dad or both every single flight she’s ever flown. Including to Paris as a 17yo with mom in May.
    You’re telling me this was pure luck for all these years?

    It depends on their age and whether they are traveling with a parent or guardian with TSA PreCheck®. Family members ages 12 and under traveling with an eligible parent or guardian with a TSA PreCheck® indicator on their boarding pass can join them in the TSA PreCheck® lanes without applying. Children between the ages of 13 and 17 who will be traveling on the same reservation as an enrolled parent or guardian may also access the TSA PreCheck® lanes, provided the children have the TSA PreCheck® indicator on their boarding pass. Children 13 to 17 may be randomly excluded from receiving TSA PreCheck® on their boarding pass. In these cases, they must go through standard security screening. Children 17 and under who will be traveling alone or without a TSA PreCheck®-eligible parent or guardian must apply for TSA PreCheck® to have access to expedited screening.

    Some prechecks are more precheck than others?

    I’m in BW’a boat (er, plane) never once in 5 years of having precheck have my family not once gotten the little green check even though I’m the only one with it.

    Must be all that good airport karma I’m tossing out there in the SkyLounge.

    Sounds like it's kind of random. I've never had my 13-17yos get pre check with me in 5+ years of traveling with it. Not sure what the criteria is but it's definitely not automatic. All of mine have originated in Seattle (at least outbound) so maybe it's just that SeaTac hates my family? Who knows. I asked Delta agent last time and they told me it was not automatic unless they were 12 or younger. Count your blessings if your family is getting it every time.

    Wouldn't it be the airline that assigns precheck to family members of people with trusted traveler credentials, or to non-TT's for their return flights? The govt may issue the TT number but it's the airline who puts pre check on the boarding pass after you give the airline the TT number. So maybe the policy varies with the airline?
