100 bucks isn't a bad deal.

this is ridiculous.

walk through an unsafe radiation field, be sexually assaulted, or pay $100 to do both and be approved to fly through the airport. we already give the TSA too much of our tax money for no reason, eff that. I've boycotted flying altogether.

what a rimshot

Please people! If everybody quits flying for just one week in protest of scanners, they will go bye-bye.

i haven't flown since the TSA was brought into airports.

TSA = Totally Senseless Administration

The same here! I'll never fly again until TSA is removed from the airport screening process along with their machines.

Another hypothetical question:

Let's say TSA does discontinue their passenger screening process. You would be OK with passengers taking whatever guns, explosives, pressurized toxic gases or whatever on board, and maybe checking 50 pounds of C4 and a detonator in their luggage?

You would start flying again then, right?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 12501673


So let's say TSA does remove their screening process and machines. I guess you will be limited to domestic flights, since every other country in the world does the same thing and you would have to go through the same process if you wanted to go home.

Hate the full-body scans, pat-downs and slow going at TSA airport security screening checkpoints? For $100, you can now bypass the hassle.

The Transportation Security Administration is rolling out expedited screening at big airports called "Precheck." It has special lanes for background-checked travelers, who can keep their shoes, belt and jacket on, leave laptops and liquids in carry-on bags and walk through a metal detector rather than a full-body scan. The process, now at two airlines and nine airports, is much like how screenings worked before the Sept. 11 attacks.

To qualify, frequent fliers must meet undisclosed TSA criteria and get invited in by the airlines. There is also a backdoor in. Approved travelers who are in the U.S. Customs and Border Protection's "Global Entry" program can transfer into Precheck using their Global Entry number.

"It's a completely different experience than what you're used to," said Matt Stegmeir, a platinum-level Delta Air Lines Inc. frequent flier who was invited into Precheck when it opened at his home airport, Minneapolis-St. Paul. Besides zipping through security screening quickly and easily, Mr. Stegmeir noticed another difference: TSA agents at the Precheck lane are usually smiling.
