Quoting mesaflyguy (Reply 2), "I'd think they'd bring it to T8
as it was about 11pm and T8
was practically empty."
mesaflyguy, it is possible that at that time (11:00 pm) the Federal Inspection Service (i.e. Customs) had already closed and U.S. Customs were only available at Terminal 4. If T8
was "practically empty" as you stated, I would imagine all of the incoming international flights of American (and other airlines that use T8
) had already arrived and Customs at T8
had closed for the night. I think they run Customs at T4
