I was talking about reservations not yet attached by NC TPs before 3/5/2019, not OC TPs. The issue is whether NC TPs can be attached to a point reservation at the pre-change category.

At T3 you either use GS lobby or Clear. It makes little sense to use both. At international terminal Clear is much better because most of the time you are moved to the beginning of the conveyor,...
