Medical lanes and express services are for people with disabilities not allergies. These services are meant for people who have difficulty walking or standing due to a medical issue. Some "hidden" medical issues would be some people with heart conditions, arthritis, kidney disease, cancer, etc. that don't always manifest symptoms that are visible, but create issues walking, standing, or waiting in lines.

I too am allergic to bees, but I would never think that I should be in a medical line. If people with allergies are allowed to "cut the line" it will be clogged with those with peanut allergies, bee allergies, etc. causing longer lines and wait time those with more pressing issues.

This post is from a year ago, and no one was asking about cutting the line. You missed the point entirely.

Medical Lane? I travel 100,000 miles annually and have never seen such a thing either. I travel with many folks with disabilities, and if they're in a wheelchair they have to bring them through a gate then do a physical inspection of them and their wheelchair.

Everytime I see this thread I giggle at the title - sorry!

It sounds like Epipen is having an advernture at the airport, as in the kids books......

"Epipen at the airport".

Next: "What Epipen did next!"

I fly extensively and have never been asked about the Epipens or taken them out of my purse. Either they don't scan as looking like a weapon or they recognize them.

Elaine this post is two years old.

And next time please try a few paragraphs and some punctuation, since your post is close to unreadable.

I can't understand a word of what you wrote either Elaine.

I've been carrying epipens for years and never used a fast track lane.

I think this thread is well past its sell by date.
