CLEAR Picking Up A Bit Of Steam? Adds San Jose, Second New Airport In Roughly 30 Days

I don’t imagine there are a ton of fans of CLEAR right now.  When they folded a few years ago they lost all mindshare.  They were resurrected from the dead but didn’t have much relevancy because not too many airports signed on. Add to that the ability to apply for Global Entry to access TSA PreCheck and the proliferation of PreCheck, and CLEAR became pretty much obsolete.

News And Notes For Monday, December 10th

Wandering Aramean reports that United has joined the club in shutting off aggregation sites like Award Wallet.  Just more piling on for some of my favorite services.  Award Wallet is a big part of being able to manage all the different accounts our family has.  While I’m disappointed that the major airlines are chipping away at it’s effectiveness I’m hopeful there will be a resolution that satisfies the airlines while providing their customers with this integral service. American Airlines is teasing us about their new paint job.  View From the […]
