    [Verb] queue

    Hundreds queue for food after Spanish earthquake - chicagotribune.com
    Hundreds of people queued for food Thursday from emergency workers in the Spanish town of Lorca, prevented from returning to their homes damaged by an unusually strong earthquake that killed eight people.

    Do AmE speakers use "queue" as a verb?

    While we clearly understand its meaning, we would be more likely to say "line up."
