You do not want to see this on your boarding pass

BBC Persian correspendent, Bahman Kalbasi, tweeted:

"I’m SSSS on EVERY flight. Special treatment includes @TSA feeling & squeezing you & every single item in the luggage"

If you see this code on any USA boarding pass, get ready for some extra attention from airport security.

According to the TSA, this code denotes 'special screening' procedures called 'Secure Flight'.

“Secure Flight is a risk-based passenger pre-screening program that enhances security by identifying low and high-risk passengers before they arrive at the airport by matching their names against trusted traveler lists and watchlists,” a TSA spokesman said.

Another passenger, Dr. Maryam Ahmad, a self-proclaimed 'proud American-Muslim and Civil Rights Activist' also noted:

"Again I've been "randomly" selected for secondary security screening SSSS printed on JFK boarding pass. Funny, not ONE white person selected."
