Besides, their main goal is fear, and for the past 16 years America has been too scared to let kids watch planes take off unless they have a ticket to fly. Mission accomplished I'd say.

then Dan can buy ticket and henche can fly on it

That can and does happen now.

Why should the TSA care who is flying where? If you made it through security to get an airside pass, you would have made it through security to get on a plane. Who's name is on the ticket matters to the airline. They don't do checks at the gate now, don't see how airside passes would change that.

It needs to be arranged beforehand?
You go to a special desk near the checkin counters to get an airside pass. If you are 18+ you need to show ID and be checked against the no-fly list, same as with an airline ticket.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

oh. 

You can do that now, by buying a refundable ticket, but I see how the transaction costs are lower your way.

I got a pass through TLV security, except that since it was a non-flying pass, they let me skip the metal detectors, just scanned bags and asked standard "Neshek?"

They let us skip security when flying because the kids were in their carseats with gogobabyz attached :)

You didn't have to go through a metal detector?

I pushed the kids through in the carseats. It beeped. They waived us through.

Wow.
They rarely make you take kids out of car seats or strollers in TLV. Just never heard of letting an adult through

TLV does PROFILING along with special training where they engage people in conversations and look straight at them (including driving into the airport).

So far, it has worked without failure IINM, and is a lot more efficient than TSA.

Or as the LLBG exec that gave us the tour said "We don't like calling is profiling (with a hard reish), we call it classification"

Classification sound a lot less PC than Profiling does!!! They don't mince words!

iirc correctly, they told us that they dont profile based on race, but rather based on threat level

With race being part of assessing the threat level....
