    newly minted elite with *A. Travelling with family - non status members. Can all 3 of us get checked in in the Elite line? Wouldn't that be infuriating for other members?

    Yes to the first, and no to the second. Seeing three people get into the short line is no more infuriating than seeing one. To minimize fuss, when they ask to check your bp to verify you are elite, hand them the stack with yours on top.

    The infuriating thing is when your non-elite family or friends don't understand what's going on or stop and argue or whatever. I have to explain at the beginning what the elite line is and that as long as they keep up the pace they can go with me.

    Yes!!! I am the same way. I normally tell them to just let me do the talking and to keep up with me.

    If you bring your family through an elite security line, please be sure they are prepared regarding what to do and can do it quickly. It's not nice to slow down the process for other elites.
