Submission + - Flyclear shuts down operations (latimes.com)

torrentami writes: Flyclear sent out emails to its subscribers today informing them that as of 11 p.m. PST they will cease operations. Flyclear was a pioneer in speeding customers through security at airports and had planned on expanding to large events. The service, where it was available, offered a first class security experience for travelers willing to fork over $200 a year and their biometrics. Customers are now left holding their Flyclear cards with encrypted biometrics. The question now becomes, what happens to all that information? This is not the first time Flyclear has been in the news. A laptop containing customer records was reportedly missing from the San Francisco International airport recently but then turned up shortly thereafter. Another casualty of the recession's downturn in business travel.
