I've had it happen to me a few times, I most often notice it when the security lines are beginning to really back up and they need to get people thru.

The last couple times my wife and I have traveled we paid extra to get more space. We had precheck on all the flights. Pay more = precheck?

You must be doing something wrong then.

You should've been given a known traveller number which you should be supplying to the airline every time you book a flight.

Or you're flying with an airline that doesn't participate in the program.

Otherwise, if you passed the screening, you should get precheck every single time.


Southwest and Egencia have my known traveler number. It's in my profile. SW says it must be a TSA thing

when flying SouthWest, I would get Pre-Check on one leg of every flight

was not signed up, just got it - almost good enough to set a watch by it

I now have Global Entry so its every single trip

Check your profile info that is on file with SW. There was a discrepancy on mine that held up my TSA-Pre on a number of flights. I finally checked with a ticket agent and found out someone had transposed numbers on my birthdate, so it conflicted with the TSA info. Once I got that straightened out, I've gotten it ever since.

Just got a random precheck too on my last flight. One of the TSA officers told me it is random, and its really nothing more than a teaser to get you to sign up and pay the fee for precheck status.

When you call the airline make sure you have the TSA number with you. Then have the airline read the number to you BACKWARDS. I made a transposition error when I typed in my TSA number into the firm's travel portal (which fed the number to multiple airlines when I made reservations). It took me a while to get it fixed in all of the airline databases.

I've gotten precheck a few times. Never any where when it would be nice like ATL. I had it once in Layfayette LA. The precheck line had five people in it and the regular line had one person.

My bad. The last letter is an X, but I input a K. Crap. Hopefully I get it Wednesday. Ugh.

SW wasn't acknowledging mine on mobile passes but they were able to fix at the ticket counter. Haven't flown with them since this incident so I don't know if its fixed. It's worth checking BEFORE you stand in the PreCheck line as I did a week ago only to be turned away. Frown
