    TSA Tuesday announced the start of TSA PreCheck operations with Alaska Airlines at Seattle-Tacoma International. Alaska Airlines is the third airline to begin offering TSA PreCheck to select members of their frequent flyer program, in addition to Delta and American, TSA said. TSA PreCheck is a pre-screening initiative and allows select passengers to receive expedited screening for domestic travel.

    TSA PreCheck is part of the agency's broader effort to implement risk-based security concepts to enhance security by focusing on travelers the agency knows less about. More than 820,000 passengers have received expedited screening through TSA PreCheck security lanes since the initiative began in October, 2011. TSA PreCheck is now available in 13 airports for select U.S. citizens traveling on Alaska, American and Delta Air Lines and members of U.S. Customs and Border Protection Trusted Traveler programs.

    I wonder how long it will take until they bring UA into the mix. I've been "opted in" on the UA(CO) website for several months now.
