The line and the Flash Pass

Via Slacktivist, a wonderful metaphor of America - and I'm not joking. Read it.

What's your view on business fliers who pay for special passes to expedite them through TSA in airports?

I find them somewhat annoying, but bottom line: I've never missed a flight because of them, and I've never lost a seat because of them. To my mind, that's the difference with the Flash Pass this person was describing: those people were interfering with and in some cases denying the experience others had paid for.

Good points. It might be different if there were an airline policy that enabled them to swan up to the counter at the last minute and bump us budget-fare fliers from our flights, even if we'd arrived well in advance (and weren't consenting, in return for other considerations from the airline).

Exactly. They avoid some of the annoyance, but in the end they're on the same plane as we are - and most importantly, we're on the same plane they are.
