  • 1hr Layover enough time?!

    I have 1hour to catch my flight from terminal D to terminal A - do you guys think I'll be able to make it?!

     

    Yes, 1 hr transfer at IAH will suffice: The above-ground TerminaLink train, which starts its service at the Terminal A station, connects terminals A, B, C, D/E inside security (allow for 30 mins transfer from A to D).

    layover time 2 hour 20 minutes. Is it sufficient ? internation flight from terminal D. how to reach from terminal A to terminal D? surface train or under ground? will United A will transfer the kuggage to Lufthansa?

     

    You take the TerminaLink train between terminals which runs inside the secure area. Yes, if your tickets were bought on one reservation then United will transfer your bags to Lufthansa. You have plenty of time.

     

    thanks

    Is an 1 hour and 15 min loyover enough time to exit security and smoke and get back through security?

     

    Yeah, that's probably enough time. Especially if both of your flights are in the same terminal.

    I'm arriving at IHA on United UA 3262 at 0637 hrs. to connect with United UA 3262 at 0727 hrs. I have a problem walking at times Will I have enough time to make the transfer?

     

    Are both of your flights really 3262? If so everything will likely be in Termianal B and close together.

    we have a 10 hour lay over at IAH. We get to IAH at 1am with connecting flight the next day at 10:30 am. Besides sleeping at the airport floor, do you have any suggestions?

     

    According to Google Maps there's 2 Denny's not too far from IAH - you could take a cab there then call another cab when you're sick of killing time there. There's also an on-site hotel at IAH if you want to actually try to sleep. http://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/iahap-houston-airport-marriott-at-george-bush-intercontinental/

    can I meet someone for lunch at IAH terminal B without going through security?

     

    Terminal B has no outside security restaurants and you won't be able to go through security. The only place on airport grounds that I can find to eat at would be the Marriott - http://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/iahap-houston-airport-marriott-at-george-bush-intercontinental/ I wouldn't recommend trying to do that unless your friend's layover is at least 3 hours, preferably 4.

     

  • IAH to HOBBY 3 hrs 25 min layover

    We are arriving at IAH 16:25 and needd to catch another domestic flight from HOBBY at 19:45. For an Indian passenger arriving first time in US,is the layover enough to clear immigration, baggage customes, travel to Hobby visa taxi and checkin over there

     

    That is barely enough time - you will be traveling during the middle of rush hour and Houston traffic is pretty bad. However, I think it will be enough time.

     

  • how to re enter boarding area?

    We just found out that close friends are just 45 min from the IAH airport. We have a 1 hr layover in Teminal C. Is there an area of the airport that we could visit with them for a few minutes before reboarding our flight? Can they enter the resturant area? Or can we exit to a pre boarding area and then re enter to board our plane?

     

    You could exit security and re-enter, but realistically with just a 1 hr layover you would only be seeing your friends for 15 minutes tops before you have to get back in the security line again.

     

    Thank you! It would be worth it! We haven't seen them in over a year and didn't realize they were that close to the airport. Thank you!

    is 1 hr. and 30 minutes enough to go terminal c from terminal b

     

    On arrival at IAH take the above-ground TerminaLink train, which starts its service at the Terminal A station, connects terminals A, B, C, D/E inside security. Terminal C has three gateways - follow signs to your gate - hurry!

    Is there an area in the terminal where I can walk my dog while waiting for connecting flight?

     

    At IAH, Pet Relief Areas are located (a) outside of Arrivals at Terminals A, B, & C (follow pet relief signs in the Baggage Claim Hall); (b) outside of Departures /Ticketing at Terminal D. Just follow signs.

    flying UNITED : SFO-through IAH-to Cozumel Mexico. We are arriving to Houston 10pm on a FRI night. flight to Cozumel leave next morning at 9am. Planning on checking into onsite airport Marriott for the overnight layover to let my 5 y.o (and us) sleep. Just want to be sure arrival, leaving terminal to hotel then going through security in am should be seamless? doable?

     

    Make sure you have a boarding pass for your connecting flight; if not, on arrival at IAH, go to the United counter on the Departures level and get your boarding card which you will need the next day.

     

    Will be traveling 10/3 with a small carry on containing a dog around 2300 and leaving IAH on an early am flight. Am I able to take the animal to the pet area and reenter through security during the night?
