The answer is yes if you were at JFK Airport Sunday. We had to connect through JFK on a flight from Antigua to DC and I heard that people took 90 minutes to get through. Thank GOODNESS we had TSA Security Pre-Check! I can’t say enough about this, get Global Entry/Pre-Check. We whizzed through immigration while a line snaked row after row and spent 2 minutes going back through security for our connecting flight. PRICELESS – ok it really cost $100 for 2 years. HOWEVER, if you get certain cards, which include the following, they will reimburse you the fee:
Citi AAdvantage Executive World Elite MasterCard
I would say ‘definitely worth it’ even if you have to pay the fee yourself.
