comment Why does US Customs & Immigration ask the purpose of my trip when I'm returning home?
OP asked "Why am I asked these things?" - often it is so they can decide whether or not to search your stuff.

you can come in. Doesn't mean your stuff can, or that you don't owe duty. The questions are mostly about that.

comment Am I likely to get a cheaper flight with a long layover?
@CSJC you certainly can, but I would start on a general search website like Kayak or Expedia and see what they offer you with connections. Then try some multi city searches with suggestions you already have like Montreal or Rejyavik, as well as any cities that showed up in one-stop flights in your search results. It is a lot of work it's true. You could also pay a travel agent to do it. That's who found my flight through Istanbul. If it was easy, everyone would do it.

comment Cuban US resident traveling from Canada to Cuba and back
you are just repeating what is in your question. I don't understand why you are concerned about going from Cuba to Canada but don't appear concerned about the first step, going from the US to Canada. If you expect them to easily let you in that time, at the start of your trip, why do you expect any issues the second time you enter Canada, after having been in Cuba? Either you're admissible to Canada or you're not, and entering from the US is not that different from entering from Cuba.

that's not my question. Unless you were born in Canada, you got in somehow, yes? Did you use your Cuban passport? Did you need a visa?

comment Does booking directly from an airline improve customer service in resolving problems?
@MonicaCellio do you have status with either AC or UA? This can make a huge difference, and if you're making international flights reasonably often, you might have status, so it's worth mentioning whether you do or not.

comment 10 year ban for overstaying a US visa
Have you been served with a ban? Did you come to the attention of the authorities during those 20 years? Or do you just feel that when you apply, they will issue a ban?
