Huh?

I know you can use GE domestically but it serves no purpose for someone like me who is a domestic elite flyer. I use TSA Pre check with the same benefits as GE.

Heck, even when I was coming back through customs in Montreal last month the Elites shared a line with the GE's until we got to the kiosks or to the human customs agent.

I go offer to volunteer each time right when they open the desk. Even if they don't need them or haven't asked.

As a somewhat frequent flier (not so much lately), I mostly agree with you.

I sort of agree with this. I have had a number of overnight layovers and people who are loud late night in airports really make me mad. Even during the day in certain areas of airports I would hope people could try to be as quiet as you can.

I only take them when they offer me $400 or more to get on a later flight...

Also got a $100 one because they soaked both my checked bags and had to get everything drycleaned again... But they picked up my dry cleaning tab as well

But you don't get pre just due to your status.

You only get priority.

Now, at some airports they might be the same, but not all.

Austin combines, but SFO and LAX do not.

Yea they lost my luggage last year when I was heading out to SFO and I had a mtg that night. Delta paid for some dress pants, shirt, and tie since I was traveling in casual clothes.

Off to bed. 6am flight out of MSY

Yes you do, on delta at least. All Gold, plat, and diamond who have their DOB and full name in the system are eligible for Pre check

I made my flight at 10:50 tomorrow so I could sleep in a little, get breakfast, and gradually get myself to the airport to get home just before 3

Damn Rummy you got the late flight in
