Red face Regarding TSA Pre-check

This was posted on the United Airlines site some time ago:

"As of February 2017, TSA will significantly reduce access to TSA Pre✓ expedited screening for non-enrolled travelers. TSA strongly recommends that you enroll in a DHS Trusted Traveler program such as TSA Pre✓, Global Entry, NEXUS or SENTRI to obtain access to expedited airport security screening."

I used to generally get Pre-check because of my frequent flier status, but that is no longer the case, at least not regularly. That said, I was never impressed with Pre-check, it often had long lines and was not significantly faster, mainly due to poor organization and confusion. But perhaps that was just at the airports I frequent, and maybe it will become more organized over time.
