FAA looking at ways to prescreen frequent flyers

Quote:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Airline passengers who volunteer for background checks could bypass long lines at security checkpoints under a plan being considered by the Transportation Department.

The plan hinges on technology to verify a passenger's identity, such as a retinal scan or fingerprint. Airlines and airports are pushing for tamperproof "smart cards" that passengers would show at the screening area.
