Overseas SSSS followed by domestic cxn.
I sometimes get SSSS at foreign airports, and it has been easy to deal with. I also have Pre-check and GE.
After I clear the SSSS overseas, sometimes my inbound flight back to US is followed by a domestic connection, and my domestic boarding pass does not display the TSA Pre-check icon.
Occasionally I have a tight connection and would really benefit from Pre-check.
Does anyone have experience with recovering TSA Pre-check on a connecting flight after clearing the SSSS on the first flight?
It depends on what airline issues the boarding pass. If it’s a foreign carrier that does not participate in PreCheck then you won’t get the PreCheck designation on your domestic connection.
In such situations, after clearing Customs before going through security, I go to the airline counter next to the baggage re-check area, provide them with my KTN and get a new boarding pass issued with PreCheck designated.

Thanks for the quick response. I will try to remember not to rush past the baggage claim area when I have a tight connection.
