American gave us a tour of their newly opened Flagship check-in area at LAX. While normally reserved for Concierge Key members and passengers traveling in international or transcontinental, 3-cabin first class, they permitted us to come back to use the check-in area for our flights home from LAX (if, of course, we were traveling on American).
The main perk of this area? They drop you off at the very head of the TSA name checking line. Consider my experience the week prior at LAX: I waited 20 minutes to get my boarding pass and ID checked and then spent 20 seconds in the actual screening process thanks to TSA Pre.
