No more freebies. http://www.travelmarketreport.com/articles/TSA-Ends-Free-Passes-to-Airport-Pre-Check-Lines I had to read a few articles before I got that there were two parts to this: 1. Where some people would get the Pre-Check designation on their boarding pass (which I got more than half the time) 2. When the regular lines got really long, they would profile the lines and wave some people over to Pre-Check. They're getting rid of both.
