Maybe Atlas could have weeded out that FO during the interview process. Ya know....the one that was apparently so weak he grossly overreacted to a pitching up moment and killed the two innocent pilots that were in the cockpit with him.

GMAFB!
Is that really what happened?

I don’t agree either, but I’m also not going to waste valuable time fighting it.

$20 a year for Global.

Even better is when I go through KCM and she has to go through security...have you seen the non PreCheck line at these airports? My wife would divorce me if I said "Stand in that line, ill see you 2 hours on the other side of security"

In the end I enjoy the dedicated lines for Global, the kiosks, and the priority to get through, regardless of in uniform or not. I have noticed Mobile Passport lines getting longer at airports as more people download it.

Its $100 for 5 years and my credit card reimburses it anyways. Enjoy your mobile, just remember, I get to cut in front of you...wait your turn.
Do you need to carry the Global Entry card for Pre Check? I have just been using my passport at the Kiosks when returning from International.

Yes. Use the Global Entry line.

Not SWA. Not even remotely close.

Companies: we like to hire well rounded people who show empathy with others, build communities, and better themselves personally.

There’s something on your shoulder you might want to get checked out.
