Just How Stupid is the TSA?

February 18, 2013 13:33:10.546

Pretty stupid, as it turns out. I have pre-check status through my Platinum status on American Airlines. That means that within the bowels of TSA, I have a known traveler number, which means that I should be able to have pre-check regardless of what airline I travel on. Except....

  • American doesn't have access to that number
  • TSA says they can't provide it to me
  • USAirways can't request it

In fact, USAirways tells me that I need to give them the number, which I can't get access to. If this isn't a modern day example of catch-22 in operation, I don't know what is.
