  • Is there a place to leave luggage for the night?

    Hy, I'm flying from Montreal landing in Houston Friday Nov 7. I have a 24 jours lay over and I am wondering if there is a service at the airport where I can leave my bags for the night so I don't have to bring them downtown where I am spending the night. If so what is the cost and where do I locate this service at the airport? Thank you

     

    There are no baggage storage facilities at the airport for security reasons. You will have to bring it with you to your hotel.

     

    well I'm staying with some people and do not hope to carry my 2 bags on the bus. Is there any way I might leave them at one hotel or any other place? I have to roam in the city a few hours before going to my hosts. Thanks

    Hi Im arriving from mexico city to HIA in aeromexico to take a connection flight in turkish airlines to istambul , i have 3 hours between flights is that enought to go throught custums, get out of security go to counters of turkish airlines and get my ticket to the secund flight all the tickets are in a single E ticket so is the airlines in mexico supposed to give me all the tickets and i just go to recheking or do i really have to get out of security and go to the counters

     

    IAH has a system where passengers on a single international->international itinerary often do not have to claim their baggage to go through US Customs. However, Aeromexico does not connect many passenger at IAH so they may not know about it. However, they will tag your bag through to IST. You likely will not have to claim it in IAH, but if you do you should be able to re-check it immediately after clearing customs. You will then still have to go through security. I'm not sure if Aeromexico will be able to issue your Turkish boarding passes as they are not in the same alliance. If they can't you will have to go to the Turkish counter anyway before going through security. Everything will be in Terminal D. You should have enough time, even if you have to do all those things, but you will have very little time to spare.

    Hi, I'm flying from MTY to LAX with a 1h 5 min stop in Houston. I'm flying with UA all the way, arriving and leaving from IAH. Do I have to go through customs and recheck my luggage ect...? In that case is that connection time possible?

     

    Yes, in Houston you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your baggage, clear customs and re-check your baggage, then go to the departure level and go through security and to your gate. 1 hr 5 minutes probably isn't enough time to do all that. Did United change your flights' schedule? If so you should call them and ask for an earlier flight from MTY or a later flight to LAX.

     

    1. International Arrivals arrive either at Terminals D or E. From there they go through secure corridors, walk across the sky bridges to adjoining Federal Inspection Services (FIS), where they will claim baggage & clear U.S. Customs. If continuing your journey, re-check in your baggage at the recheck counters and proceed to the Arrivals Lobby, which has an escalator down to the Inter-Terminal Train taking you to your connecting terminal. (As United uses all of IAH's terminals, look at overhead screen to find your connecting flight & gate number.) 2. For International departures: United Airlines at Terminal E; all other airlines at Terminal D.)
