Hi! On Dec 11, 2017 I'll be traveling on United Airlines from Toronto to SJO, Costa Rica.

I'll be arriving on a United flight from Toronto at 9am in Terminal B at IAH and have a 45min layover to catch my United flight at 9:45am to Costa Rica.

I'll have to check a bag in Toronto and I'll do my best to advise the flight attendants that I have a connecting.

Few questions:
1. Will my bags make the flight?
2. Will I have enough time to make the connecting?
3. Do i need to go through security at Terminal B or Terminal E?
4. Any other measures I can take to ensure I make that flight that is in my control?

Thank you in advance!
You and your bags should have enough time. All you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate using the Skyway train.
Thank you ZAP
Arrive from Oma in terminal A, leave 57 minutes later in terminal C to Costa Rica. Should I invest in arriving day earlier?
Flights from Omaha usually don't arrive in A and flights to Costa Rica usually depart from E. What airlines are you flying?
arrive united flight 6223
depart united flight 1512
You are right arrive gate B
& depart Gate C
Tks

Flying Guadalajara to Calgary with a stop in Houston. Do I have to collect my bags in Houston to go through customs or can they be checked all the way to Calgary as it is international to international? In addition, is the one stop customs line still being utilized as it was a few years back? I've only got 1 hour 37 minute layover.
You do not have to claim your bags in Houston. Yes, Onestop still exists and you can use it. You should have enough time.
Travelling from Chicago to Costa Rica. First flight arrives to terminal C, next depart from terminal E. is 58min enough time for this connection?
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
Arriving United from Costa Rica, connecting to United flight to Albuquerque: do I have to go through security?
Yes, you have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, go through security, and to your departure gate in Houston.
Hi there
I will be travelling on the 23th December and got 1 h 25 minutes to change flights, Both of them in the same terminal E. times around 18:25 to 19:40

is that enoght time? Travelling on ESTA waiver being Spanish National.
That's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly.
I have 1 hour 15 minutes to change flights within terminal E.
Flight is to Panama so pure transit. I will be travelling on a ESTA waiver visa from UK.
is that enough time in this case. I have no idea how large is terminal E. Time is between 18:20 and 17:40
That is not realistically enough time as you still have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security.
Traveling on Canadian passport on United from SJO through IAH to Los Cabos, Mexico. I have 1 hr 40 min in Houston . Enough time???
Arriving at 10:15 am, if that makes any difference. On return trip, I have 1 hr 55 min for the transfer and I arrive at 4:25 pm. Don't know if time of day plays a factor.???
Both ways it should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hi, US passport coming into IAH from Cancun at 8:15am on 11/13, Terminal E, Gate 14. I have a connecting flight with United Airlines at 9:45am to Seattle, terminal C, Gate 36. Is 1 hour 45 minutes enough time to get through customs and onto my flight to Seattle? Or is that too short of time?
Shoot, I guess I mean 1.5 hours. I'm already losing my mind, my apologies.
That should be just enough time if everything goes perfectly. With the mid-morning arrival immigration and customs shouldn't be too crowded.
Thank you!!!
Is 1h25m enough time to connect at Houston from London to Managua? The flight is with United Airlines all the way through (although looks like it may be a codeshare). Thanks very much.
That is not realistically enough time as you have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and Security. It may be possible if the flight from London arrives early.
