    Has anyone else noticed that the ID Checker machines at security are giving a single long beep for PreCheck and a triple beep for standard screening? I noticed it last week in Buffalo and today in Newark.

    You know, I've noticed that recently. I still get the 3 beeps occasionally. Maybe those locations haven't gotten a software update yet?

    I've noticed it's now that way at SEA, ORD, MKE, JFK, PHL and SFO.

    A week ago I got one beep at AUS for PreCheck. The TSA agent said that's the new signal. I did not hear anyone in the regular line getting 3 beeps.

    A few days later I got 3 beeps at DRO (Durango, CO).

    Also, the double beep flags you as the Road Runner.
