Almost another Advanced Imaging Technology (AIT) Opt-Out

Today I was flying out of SEA and at the check point I was at it appeared that all of the Backscatter machines were in use so it didn’t matter what line I chose.

I also noticed that instead of the TSOs directing people whether to use the Backscatter or the metal detector, people just self-queued in front of the AIT.  Instead of queuing, I just approached the metal detector and I was motioned right through.  No one questioned why I wasn’t queuing for the AIT.  No one made me wait for a pat down.  People were just choosing the line the person before them went through.
