Received an email today from United allowing me to enroll into the TSA’s prescreening program. Initially the program will roll out at Chicago’s O’hare and New York’s Newark (Well New Jersey actually, but I won’t give Jersey the the benefit of the doubt!).
According to the program, you will no longer have to remove Shoes, Belts or Jackets or your Liquids (the 3-1-1 bag). Additionally, your laptop can stay in your carry-on as well!
It looks like a targeted email. When I clicked on the link it had my Trusted Traveller Program ID # already prefilled. Several months ago Continental was letting you sign up to be alerted when the Trusted Traveler Program came to the airline. I suspect anyone that signed up at that point was targeted for this email!
