Global entry is amazing. It's $100 for 5-years and you get TSA pre ✔.
This has nothing to do with kiosks at the ticket counter for self service checkin.
Global entry allows you to skip the customs lines. How sweet is that?
expedited check in for business and 1st class
CHECK IN is only expedited at the ticketing area for your airline. = probably shorter line.
the rest of the process is equal for all passengers no matter what the class of air service;
equal access for immigration and security area
equal going through US Customs
equal access then going thru the final security
so the only benefit of first or business class INSIDE the airport is getting to the ticketing agent faster and being able to board the plane at the gate earlier, the rest is the same as all of the folks in coach (steerage)
