Clear Lanes Airport Security Line Goes Bankrupt and Closes

Clear Lanes Airport Security Pass Is Bankrupt, Closing Doors

Did you have aspirations of being a Clear pass holder — the paid service that let you breeze through airport security? Every time I went to the airport and saw the empty Clear Lanes line — contrasted with the long line of all us regular peoples, I promised myself: One day, I'd have a Clear pass. Well, my dream will never come true, because Clear and its parent company, Verified Identity Pass, Inc., have just filed for bankruptcy and are closing down.

On their website, they assure their current customers (whoever you lucky dogs were) that your information will remain secure, but that they won't be able to issue refunds. And you'll have to go back to waiting in the security line with us regular folks and our cats.

I laughed out loud when I read this. I have only encountered Clear Lanes once on my way home from a business trip and my encounter with the service was a little less than pleasant. In fact a TSA representative pushed her way to the front of the line, all of my things and the things of the gentleman in front of me were on the belt ready to go in. The TSA gal pushed our stuff back and put two people in front of us and was about to put a third when I asked what was going on. She got terribly pissed and started yelling at me that "they had paid for that right" and on and on. The guy in front of me turned to me was just as shocked as I was and replied to the TSA agent, you could use some customer service training, she simply asked a question. Good idea- HORRIBLE implementation!
