I am so used to clearing customs at IAD
for the last 10 years, I ljust adapted to their attitude which can be reasonable at times, and other times, lets say "difficult". A year after i moved back to Dubai, I would like to go back to the USA and visit. This Time i won't be going to IAD
area, but i will go to Phoenix, AZ
, my favorite city.
Looking at tickets and connection possibilities, i was faced with few delimmas. since I still hold my silver status with United Airlines, thus with *A, I would like to take United International Business, however i am confused on were would I clear customs as my first point of entry to the USA. (being used to IAD
, I would like to experience clearing customs at other parts of that wonderful country)
1 - Should i clear customs at IAD
since i am used to it?
2- Should I clear customs at ORD
3- Should I clear Customs at DEN
(if i take the LH
or should i just
4- take British Airways from Dubai, connect via LHR
and just clear customs in Phoenix?
My questions are in terms of convinience of the Airport, attitude of immigration officers, finally ease of connecting to domestic flights from international, and finally the convinience of United Red Carpet club at the same airport. (all from the prospective of a non US citizen)
any opinions would be greatly appreciated
**** My own Airline to JFK
(out of the question)
