United Airlines customers can now bribe – er, I mean, enjoy premier access – to shorter airport lines.

United Airlines is the latest (after JetBlue and Southwest) to offer a shorter path through security at the airport. They announced it last week.

For a minimum of $9 per flight segment, a limited number of customers per flight can take the fast lane through security and also get to board earlier. VIPs with affiliated credit cards will also eat up some of those slots.

The fine print indicates the fee is nonrefundable and nontransferable, meaning if you change your flight you’re probably paying it again. If you’re forced to change because of weather or the airline’s stupidity, then you still get a refund.

You can choose to include it only for specific segments of the flight – so if you know you’re heading through an airport known for particularly evil security lines (looking at you, LAX) it might be worth it. The service is currently offered at 29 airports, which includes most of the big ones.

The announcement also mentions a baggage delivery service, letting customers skip baggage claim. It’s $30 for one bag, $40 for two, and $50 for up to eight. They’ll drop them off at your doorstep (within 100 miles of your destination airport). That’s if you trust them any further than they can throw your luggage.
