This struck me as particularly unfair:

"Nicolas Rollason, a partner at Kingsley Napley law firm, said the Vissings had come up against a “longstanding” difference in treatment of family members of EU nationals from countries who require visas to visit the UK and those who do not, such as US citizens.

Americans can board flights and be “re-admitted at the border as a matter of course” but airlines often refuse other non-EU nationals “even if they have the required proof of the status as an EU family member”."

Why are Americans an exception to the rule?

No idea, but it quite possibly dates back to the UKs pre-EU days and the "special relationship" :roll:
