During the past few years, my wife and I have routinely gotten into the Pre-Chek lane without have applied, paid $85, etc. I think this might be age-related. Recently, I read something that suggested that would not happen again because of a change in TSA policy and that the only way to get Pre-Chek was to apply and pay for it. But then relatives who flew domestically in the past week told me they got into Pre-Chek and they haven't applied and paid. What have others experienced in May or June 2016? Is free Pre-Chek still occurring, including on overseas flights?
