Because TSA precheck is random. You are not guaranteed to get it every time you fly, even though your numbers are correctly recorded in your airline profile.




My understanding is that if you have global entry, you can enjoy Tsa precheck as well if you provide your known traveler number/passid when making your reservation. We always enter our numbers regardless if the airport or airline participate. Prior to travel, I check the goes website to see if Tsa precheck is an option.

We had TSA Precheck on both our boarding passes on our recent trip to SXM. It really saved our butts on the return flight when we had only about 30 mins to make our connection in Charlotte! Also, the AARP Magazine just had a small article about this. It said the PreCheck is now used by 9 airlines and at some 120 US airports. It did note, however, that even if you become a certified PreCheck flier, you will still sometimes be asked to enter the full-security line.

My interview appointment is at 1:00 PM at the airport on the same day we fly to SXM at 9:20pm. Should make for a fun busy day. Luckily we are only 30 min from the airport.

The same here Bucky...printed on my boarding pass not my husbands. The strange thing with it was after we put all our stuff in the bins and on the belt a TSA officer came over to me and told me to put my shoes back on and come with him. People around us were all "big eyed"....I'm sure wondering what I had done....LOL. After walking a good 20 feet away from the bin/belt and of course my husband, he says go thru there and gave me a green card. I said to him my husband is back with all our stuff...cash, coats, shoes, laptop, two carry-ons, belts, watches, all of course in seperate bins because he [TSA guy] told us to, I asked if I could help him and he said no that I had to stay where I was. Needless to say, it was sheer confusion for my husband, one - he didn't know what was going on or where I was and two - making sure he has all of our belongings!! If I had known what was up, I would have said no thanks I'll stay here, but he was acting all official [which he should], and I wasn't going to say no...LOL

I had the TSA precheck going to SXM (JFK) this month, but wasn't sent to a different line.
I was just told I didn't have to take off items, BUT when I tried to walk through with my purse I was told to go back and put it in a bin where my husband was.
Didn't seem to make much of a difference.

My husband had it on the way back and, like someone said, nothing happened from SXM.

Yeah, you still have to put all bags on the belt, but you shouldn't have to take anything out of your bags (laptops, liquid bag) or remove shoes/belts.

I've used it three times now and it makes life SO much easier!

for some reason I had it on my ticket out of SXM - they don't have it, but in Miami it was great...different line and didn't have to take out the laptop or take off my shoes...do they randomly give it to travelers??

You have to go to the "TSA precheck" security line. Even with pre check on boarding pass, if you get in standard line then you go through normal

security screening process.

More security theatre...why pay $85-$100 when they are giving it away?
Love when we get it, but makes no sense when my wife and I are spilt up!
More TSA nonsense.
