JAL is liable to the USA, but not to you. There is no chance that JAL will refund the amount you paid and they might even attempt to get back the money they paid as fine to USCBP.

As you're a British citizen, you'll be allowed into the UK with minimal fuss whether or not you actually live there. The border guards won't know or care what country you're living in, and are very unlikely to ask you any questions at all. When you arrive in the UK, join the "UK and EU passports" line at passport control. You'll still have to wait (possibly ...

Yes, it is possible (assuming you are not inadmissible under US law), but you will need a visa. It's hard to find the right page on the US embassy's pages because Canadian citizens generally don't need visas, and most of the content was prepared with them in mind. A good place to start is the page on visa categories and requirements. From there you can ...

(You still can't stay in the US for more ...

So it seems they approve only for approval date + 90 days regardless of when you actually want to travel. They won't change the dates on my ETA and I have to pay the fees again and apply again if I want to travel in December. Looks like I will be going elsewhere for vacation.
