Clear Ceases Operations

Saw this in email this morning, Clear has ceased operations after failing to negotiate with its senior creditor. I’ve written previously about trying it for a year and deciding that the benefit didn’t align very well with the cost, and maybe I wasn’t the only one that made that decision. Too bad, was nice to see a private company competing with the government (TSA) and driving some improvements in the process.


I'm Andy Warren, currently a SQL Server trainer with End to End Training. Over the past few years I've been a developer, DBA, and IT Director. I was one of the original founders of SQLServerCentral.com and helped grow that community from zero to about 300k members before deciding to move on to other ventures.

I think that was definitely a case of lack of value for the cost. As post 9/11 security has relaxed, and with fewer flights, less waiting around. Or maybe we're used to it. At least in Denver, not enough of a wait most times to even think about Clear. Plus what about me flying with me kids? Useless.

Not a bad idea, didn't really seem to help me, and apparently, not enough others.
