    Obviously you’ve been traveling through Pearson lately. LOL. What is up with that place? The Nexus lines have been almost as bad as the regular ones, thanks to all the broken kiosks.
    It's not nearly as bad as the regular ones, but they really should have done a better job of maintaining those things. I say should have, because of course they're going to facial recognition instead of iris scans. Which will cause headaches of their own, but at least the machines will be new and won't break down for 18 months or so. Maybe.

    There is also an irony at land border crossings too. They will switch the Nexus lane to a generic gate when it gets busy to handle more traffic overall. So, you won’t have access to Nexus speed when you want it most there either.

    But generally, Nexus is faster.

    There have been times the Trusted Traveller line has been slower through security due to there only being one scanner. However, Nexus has always gotten me out faster at customs. That is with confirmed times since I had to wait for my non Nexus friends. Anywhere from 5-mins to 3-mins. Plus the seemingly endless non-nexus lines when I didn’t have to wait for anyone but guess it would be 45 minutes or more.

    I’m on my 3rd Nexus card.
    Overall, it helps expedite .. but certainly not what it’s hyped to be.

    That's awesome that you got your approval and interview done.

    My approval was quick... within the 35 business days. Still need to book the interview. Waiting for my kids to co-ordinate with me as we all need to book our appointments ourselves even though they are 13 and 15. So they need to log into their dashboards as the same time as me. I won't bother to get that done before my Disney trip next week (and it takes another 10 days or so to get the card) but will do it after so we are set for next time.

    My husbands application is still pending however.... He applied the same day as me.

    We had a Nexus rebate with our credit cards for our applications and the kids were free so we figured why not apply.

    I can’t wait to finally use mine for our trip to Arizona in January. We’d hoped to use them last September for our Disneyland trip but with the government shut down our applications took a while and we didn’t get advanced to the interviews until after our trip.
