Just curious - on a recent trip to LA, our 11 y.o was given Pre-Clearamce on both flights (it printed up on his boarding pass at the airport) there and back. Neither of us were given it, although we were allowed to go theough Pre-Clearance with him. He is not a frequent flyer (!) and I thought that you had to apply for this program. It certainly was quick (no liquids or electronics out, just shove your bag in the machine and walk through the detector), but as i thought about it more, what is the point of having this program if anyone can randomly be chosen to walk through? Any ideas what happened?
