Global entry card: willl it help?
Part of the plan is the the card will help me get home sooner. No matter where I come back into the US, there's usually a long layover for a flight to Cleveland. And hanging aorund an airport is the last thing I want to do after the end of a long flight home,which often means 24 hours en route before I hit my bed in Mentor. If I can get through customs quickly on Sept 21 I have hope of being able to catch a 3 p.m. flight back to Cleveland instead of waiting at Dulles another couple hours for a later flight. But since my Air France flight will arrive at 1 p.m. and westward fflights not only take longer they are ferequnelty late because of prevailing winds, a 1 pm arrival likely wont give me anough wiggle room to make a 3pm flight home, given how long the customs precess will likely take with 450 passengers aboard .
So wish me luck. I'l let you know. This could be the best thing since hot bread...or not.
