  • Can I get thru security without plane ticket?
    May 5, 2016
    I am wondering if I can go thru security with just my ID if I am not getting on a flight? I am just going to surprise someone at their terminal when they exit their plane and I'm wondering if I can get thru security to do so.


    No, you can't.


  • 43 minute connection time

    Hi, Flying into Houston Terminal B from Memphis with a 43 min connection time (assuming no delays) and flying out to Las Vegas from Terminal C. I don't have to collect baggage but is this enough time and do I have to go thro' security.


    The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security. That is enough time. Obviously it doesn't leave much time to spare if your first flight is delayed.


    Thanks ZAP...was a bit concerned as never been thro' Houston before Cheers


  • SJO > IAH > ORD

    Help! United 1490 to IAH has been delayed 26 minutes (now landing at 1734), leaving me 1 hour 40 minutes to get through customs/immigration in Houston and make it to UA 1027 (scheduled depart 1920). I have several checked bags. TSA prechecked, if that makes a difference, and both flights are on the same reservation. Can this be done?? Thank you!


    That should still be enough time. If your flight gets delayed more United has almost hourly flights from Houston to Chicago.


    now not landing in houston until 1759.. looking less and less likely that this is going to work. ugh!


    There's an 11:55 pm IAH-ORD flight that looks to have plenty of empty seats, so you'll get to Chicago tonight, just really late.

    If Im flying domestic airlines from jfk to houston. Do I need to go thru immigration?


    If you are just flying from JFK to Houston no, you do not go through Immigration, New York and Texas are both part of the United States.

    I am flying in on a Saturday from Jamaica and have a 93 min layover. Is this long enough to make it thru customs before I depart for Los Angeles


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will arrive in Terminal E, go through US Immigration, collect your baggage, go through US Customs, re-check your bags, and go through security and then to your departure gate, which will likely be in Terminal C, which is directly connected to E.
