One of the best programs in air travel is TSA Precheck which is a way to shortcut security for “low risk” passengers.  When you travel through the TSA precheck part of line at the airport for your domestic travels, you don’t have to take off your shoes, you generally don’t have to take out laptops from your luggage, and you get to skip the long regular security line.

 It’s a privilege that helps one save time at the airport, which because of all we go through while traveling, time is at a premium.

Since airports and airlines have required that passengers must wear a mask on planes and inside of planes, there have been a large spike in incidents on planes.  Mostly from unruly passengers that did not want to comply with health and safety protocols, some of the events were tied into the consumption of alcohol as well.

“If you act out of line, you will wait in line,” FAA Administrator Steve Dickson said. “Our partnership aims to promote safe and responsible passenger behavior. One unruly incident is one too many.”

“TSA has zero tolerance for the unruly behaviors, especially those involving physical assault occurring aboard aircraft. We have tremendous respect for airport staff, gate agents and flight crews that get people safely to their destinations,” said TSA Administrator David Pekoske.

“This partnership with FAA will help ensure the safety and security of all passengers and hold those who violate federal regulations accountable for their actions.”
