I had the enjoyment of whisking myself for the first time through the TSA Pre lane at Newark Airport this morning and I can say without hyperbole that it is the greatest thing to happen to travel since the Wright Brothers invented the airplane.
If you haven’t experienced TSA Pre, get this: you go through security with your shoes on, your belt on, and your laptop in your bag. And because it’s currently limited to some frequent flyers and Global Entry members, there is no one in the line. It’s like flying private (or whatever). My pants did not fall down. Just throw your bags on and go. It’s like 1988 all over again!
I’m sure this giddiness will wear off at some point, but let me enjoy it for now. Thanks.
