Otherwise they can join the stack of cardboard QF and NZ lounge passes that became useless overnight many years ago....
I find them useful because smartgate never works for me in Australia.

Are they at least accurate for IAH which apparently now has a wildly different arrival process?

I stepped off in IAH last week to a shambles. Random queues, no explanation of US or non US queues...and to top it off no APEC lane.

I just stepped off one. Shouty lady yelling "Air New Zealand passengers that way, Global Entry that way"

Turns out apparently US passports and Air New Zealand passengers are treated the same way now.

They seem to be back on NZ101 this morning, although there is only 4 passengers in J so that might be why everyone got one.

NZ135 25/12, Express Path card handed out with arrival cards for BP pax - only one of the BP cabins was half full though, the other was totally empty. Ended up not using it as BNE pax throughput was so low, you could clear passport control in 30 seconds flat without it. APEC holders dumped in regular lane.
