  • 10 hour layover
    Jan 6, 2015
    hello I will be in IAH during 10 hours on February. I was thinking on visiting the Woodlands? Is it worth going there?

    I'll be Arriving at 1am - leaving at 8am - anything open at this hour? any recs?


    Pretty much everything will be closed until around 4:30. You could go to a hotel, but it's probably not really worth it.


  • Nice restaurant for breakfast in Terminal C?
    Dec 16, 2014
    I'm arriving from SFO at 5:10am Saturday, and departing for Mexico at 11:38. My son is going to drive to Houston from Beaumont to have breakfast with me at the airport. What restaurant is nice and relaxing to hang out for a few hours? I guess I'll have to leave security and we'll meet in a public part of the airport.


    Can my son who isn't flying get a Gate Pass to meet me at a restaurant in Terminal C?


    No, he can't.


  • 40 min layover with checked bag
    Dec 2, 2014
    I have a united flight that gets into Houston at 5:05pm and a united flight that leaves at 5:45pm, if I check my bags do i have to get them and re-check them, or does the airline handle that?


    You do not have to do anything with your bags in Houston if the first flight is domestic. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The TerminaLink train connects all terminals inside security.


  • Meeting someone arriving in IAH
    Nov 7, 2014
    My friend will be flying on United Airlines from Gulfport, Mississippi to Houston, Texas on December 21. She will fly on flight UA4588. Her flight arrives in Houston at 7:57 AM, and then she will fly out at 11:25 AM that morning. We plan to meet during this time, which is the reason for her long layover. Arriving in Terminal A that morning, where would be the place to meet her at? I will not be going through security as I will not be flying, so I need somewhere to meet that is outside security. She will need to head back through security and get to Terminal B to catch her departing flight. I have 2 questions: a) Where does she go after arriving in Terminal A to meet me? b) Where do I go after parking to go meet her? Thank you very much for any help!
