    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.)
