    PreCheck, the Transportation Security Administration’s expedited security program, is expanding to include US Airways at Reagan Washington National Airport and United Airlines at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport.

  • Column: Not all PreCheck travelers get to the fast lane
    Not all travelers who are approved to participate in the Transportation Security Administration’s PreCheck program are allowed to use the "fast lane" at security checkpoints all the time, Carol Pucci writes. She notes that some travelers may end up in the slow lane because the TSA continues to randomly select travelers for full screening. The TSA noted that the program is still in the test phase.

  • American to launch sliding seats, confident passengers will like them
    American Airlines is set to introduce "articulating" or sliding economy seats in its new fleet of Boeing 777-300ER wide-body aircraft. Current American 777-200ERs seat nine across in economy, while this new configuration will allow the carrier to fit 10 across. Air France and Emirates also seat 10 across. Jim Butler, American’s managing director of commercial planning and performance, says the sliding seats will "give the customer a feeling of a lot more space than they’re used to seeing." Butler says the seats are "well-tested" and that "the customer will see a very good experience." APEX Editor’s Blog (6/29) sm_share.gifLinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • Vitual assistant offers security tips at Boston airport
    Carla, a virtual assistant hologram, guides travelers through security checkpoints at Boston’s Logan International Airport. She speaks two languages and offers a variety of tips for travelers. "She doesn’t replace any staff. We just want to have a more effective way to communicate with our customers. … She’s an attention-grabber and is much more effective than some of the signs and some of the videos we have," says Ed Freni, the Massachusetts Port Authority’s director of aviation.
