If you join Clear, there is.

I love Clear.

Otherwise, the TSA pre-check line is your only option.

I haven't seen a separate line in domestic but I haven't really looked. I use Clear or Precheck. There's definitely not a separate first class line in the international terminal.

JAtlanta brings up a good point. Is this for an international trip?

There is no Clear at international AND the TSA pre-check closes early.

Does American offer priority security at any airport?

Just curious about the initial question.

I know it's common at European airports to have a priority line for first class. I used one in Munich 2 weeks ago. And I'm pretty sure there's one at JFK. Just not at Atlanta.

I Googled and found this suggestion to bypass the hour+ waits -

For Domestic travel, have only seen FC for UA in T2 at PHX. However, that was recently replaced by the Clear lane - so 3 lanes, Clear, TSA Pre, and regular.

That is what I have seen at most USA airports, if they do have Clear.

Best of luck,

YES!! If the North security check is open, there is a Priority line for Premium passengers of the airlines in the North terminal. The North security check is located behind Southwest Airlines check in. You still have to get in the same line as all the others but about mid-way, there's a Priority lane for Premium passengers. I am a premium passenger of Southwest and I look forward to getting to that lane.

There's no Priority lane if you use the main security check and the South security check has a Priority lane for Delta customers only (I found this lane the hard way).
