KTNs are nothing to do with your nationality - MrsNWI and I are British and we have one each because theyíre included with our Global Entry.

Discretionary granting of TSA Pre has now almost been eliminated, so the chances of it happening are exceptionally low.

The advice given to the OP about how to add the KTN number is sound and works reliably. Iíve only known it fail twice - the first time the AA agent could have corrected it at check-in but we were short of time after being delayed going to the airport and it was therefore quicker just to use the priority line rather than wait, and the second time we had ample time so got it done. I havenít known a failure for well over a year.
