Which 9A method is cheaper depends on one's circumstances. Generally speaking, the $30 Embassy visa is going to cost you time and money to get. Time to visit an Embassy in a downtown location even if you are in an Embassy city. Courier costs and money order costs if you are doing it remotely. If you do the 29 day extension at the airport or at a local BI, it costs about p3030, ~$60.
Thought this discussion was about the current situation not something in the future. So currently they must procure the 9a(59 days) in advance of arrival , so would the airport BI office be issuing 29 day waivers? I don't think so! Getting the 9a currently is going to entail what ever the cost are. Seems the Chicago Consulate is by mail only according to their website.

Yes, I was wondering why you brought up the 29 day extension that is not available now. I thought you wanted to discuss the pre-covid or post-covid reasons to get the $30 embassy visa.

Anyway, ignore me. I have covid on the brain, face mask sunburn and face shield dizziness. I'll be better tomorrow.

London is also only operating by mail. You have to book your hotel ahead of travelling, also the covid test, how do you do that. And if you are bumped from your flight you stand to loose a heap of money. And if you are bumped from your connecting flight, ouch.
