It's possible TIMATIC will barf up something about no return ticket if you check in with your US passport. If that happens, just check in with your Dutch passport.
Agreed. Always use US outbound and inbound. I have US/UK dual nationality and have never had an issue arriving into the UK on my UK passport having never logged it into any airline API system. When its US to Not 2nd country of citizenship, I use whatever works best from an immigration perspective at the second location.
