A program that gets you through the airport faster?
CLEAR does just that. We recently used Clear for the first time from LAX to JFK and it was so easy.
Basically, there are kiosks (and an associate to help you) before the security lines where you do your fingerprints and even eye recognition (seriously, we’re living in the future).
We were escorted to the front of the line, didn’t even need to show ID or ticket again and we were walking through the security x-ray machine.
The time from the kiosk to our gate was probably five minutes.
If you already checked in online and just need to drop off your bag, the whole process from entering the airport to getting to your gate could be less than ten minutes. It was ridiculously insane how easy it was. It totally helps when you have your dog with you, as that can already be stressful as it is.
I’m not getting paid for this at all — I just love the service. It’s less than $15/month (one year subscription) and if you use my referral link, you’ll get 2 months free! So. Worth. It.
