I'm hoping to make several trips to Vegas this year and a couple or more to Texas. I finally decided to apply for TSA Pre-Check. I did the online application this past Sunday and scheduled the interview for 1pm the next day. It took about an hour to drive there, the interview was basically me providing my id, birth certificate, and finger prints. They took a picture of me. I was back on the road by 1:15. Around 5:00 that same day I got an email update. My status had changed to Eligibility Determined, I Googled this and it seemed to me I was approved. Today I received another email saying I was approved and a link to get my known traveler number. My wife has a KTN through her job. In the past I would get Pre-Check if I booked my flight along with hers. But if I go to Vegas before her and we travel home together she would get Pre and I would not. We flew ATL to Hobby recently and both got Pre. They had a new thing in place that scans your ID. This took a minute and became the choke-point. Getting through the luggage scanners took no time, you kinda had the place to yourself.
