Apparently the TSA’s trial Pre Check expedited security program went well enough at the seven test airports—Atlanta, Dallas, Detroit, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami and Minneapolis—that the TSA announced it will roll out the program to an additional 28 airports throughout 2012.
Though it doesn’t give details on which airlines will be participating at each, United, US Airways and Alaska will be among them, and the 28 new airports will be:
-Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI)
-Boston Logan International Airport (BOS)
-Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT)
-Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG)
-Denver International Airport (DEN)
-Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL)
-George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH)

Whenever I fly out of Miami on American Airlines I usually get to use the expedited lane and it’s really nice. Some of the perks include being able to keep your shoes on, leaving laptops and carry-on toiletries inside your bag, keeping your jacket or outerwear on, and leaving your belt on—so no stripping then dressing again as you make your way through security.
