I purposely picked Philadelphia as my POE because I've had years of experience flying and connecting through there, and I always have a pleasant experience through customs & immigration. Whilst Chicago would have been easier, I wanted to go with the option that seemed 'friendlier'. Flights booked from Manchester to Philadelphia via Reykjavik with Icelandair (Cheapest 1 way carrier), with a very short 90min layover onto American Airlines domestic from Philly to Kansas City. When I arrived around 7pm, Customs & Immigration had 0 line, I went straight to the desk via the American Citizen line (I asked the TSA agent which line and she said either was fine). I greeted the agent, explained I was entering on a K1 visa intending to marry a citizen, he asked for my envelope so I handed it to him, did my fingerprints and then a colleague took me over to the office, asking how my flights were, if I was excited for my wedding (of course yes!). He yelled at the lady at the desk 'We got another Brit running away with our ladies' in a joking manner, to which the lady responded 'mmhmm'. You could tell there was an actual good atmosphere when around the agents, which put me at ease. The lady asked me when I intended to get married, then handed my passport and wished me luck. The entire process from fingerprints to collecting baggage was just 5 minutes. If I could rate philly better than 0 I really would. I was worried about nothing.
