FAA fines and Pre√

This item appears on page 28 of the February 2022 issue.

An agreement between the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), announced on Dec. 22, allows the FAA to share, with the TSA, information identifying passengers facing fines for unruly behavior. The TSA said that any of those passengers who are members of their Pre√ program will have that membership revoked.

It was not known, at press time, whether Pre√ members will have their membership restored if the FAA fines are later rescinded after an appeal.
