I'm taking a quick flight out tomorrow morning to helpout my sister with something and while trying to checkin to my flight online today I kept getting a message from the (expletive deleted) airlines website that it was "unable to process my request, please see a ticket agent at the airport" not being happy with not checking ahead of time I called their support telephone number and waited more than 45 minutes to talk to someone who was able to tell me right away that I had been randomly flagged by the TSA and that they required a certain number of people to checkin in person, thats all, nothing they could do.
OK, first of all an extra sentence or 2 on their (expletive deleted) website would have saved me nearly 2 hours of frustration, but I already emailed their (expletive deleted) support department about that.
But what does this mean that I've been "randomly flagged" by the TSA? Is this just that they want to see the person across the desk to check them in? Or am I going to be subject to further pointless cruelty when I get there?
Has anybody else had this happen to them? Did you survive?
