    The long lines at airport security may get shorter, at least for passengers the government believes are not a threat.

    Starting Tuesday, designated travelers will not have to remove their shoes, take off their belts and coats, or pull laptops and liquids out of their carry-on bags when they go through security in Terminal A at Logan International Airport — part of a new Transportation Security Administration program that streamlines the process so security personnel can do “a better job of looking for those rare characters that may want to cause trouble on a flight,” said George Naccara, the TSA’s federal security director at Logan.

    The program, called PreCheck, was launched in October and was established in 15 US airports before it came to Logan; since then, 1.4 million passengers have passed through designated PreCheck security lanes. Once the program is fully implemented nationwide, up to 70 percent of all airline passengers could be using PreCheck, according to the TSA.

    Supposedly, UA now has PreCheck @ Logan as well (at least in A where the exCO flights fly from).

    Flying out of Logan early Saturday morning out of A, hope to see if PreCheck is working... :)
