    Hi, Sometime next month, I'll be arriving from Dubai at 1545, need to clear customs/immigration and catch a connecting flight to MSY on Spirit just before 6 pm. Is this slightly under 2hr connection sufficient? Thanks!

     

    If you had no checked bags it might be barely possible if everything goes perfectly. With checked bags you have no chance. Get a later flight to New Orleans on United.

    I am arriving from Auckland into terminal D at 12.40 and departing on to Post of Spain from terminal E at 1.50 both flights are with United. Is it possible to make this connection, please

     

    The first flight is on Air New Zealand. No, that connection is NOT possible.

    i´m arriving from argentina at 5.20 am to IAH and then taking a domestic flight to Portland oregon at 9 am. the airline is UA and i have 1 reservation. do i have to get my baggage from one flight to another or the airline takes care of it? which transportation is recommended to connect terminal e to c. thank you!

     

    Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then you can go through security in E and walk to C. You have enough time.

     

    Thanks for the explanation!

    Arriving to Houston at 6:25am in terminal C and need to get to terminal E for a connecting flight. Our flight will be departing at 7:24am in terminal E. Will I have enough time to get to the gate? Do i have to go through security going from one terminal to the next?

     

    Yes, that is enough time. No you do not have to go through security.

    Arriving in Houston from Managua at UA 1423 at 11:20a.m., is it enough time to board UA 0508 to MSY at 1:10 p.m.?

     

    That is barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    How long does it take to get from gate 17 to gate 1 in terminal A. If lucky my flight is scheduled to arrive at 3pm but my next flight departs at 3:30pm. So at 3pm the plane will start boarding. Could they call down to a gate letting them know I'm on my way?

     

    What airlines are you flying? That should take less than 10 minutes.

    Arriving from Auckland into IAH. How long should I allow to clear customs and get to gate for a flight to Newark (EWR) please.

     

    If everything is on the same reservation, I recommend 2-3 hours. If it's two separate reservations I recommend 3+ hours.

    Have only a 51 minute connect time is this enough to get from B to E. What is the best way to get there ? Thx.

     

    The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.

    What terminal(s) does Copa Air use for domestic arrivals and international departures. Do we go through immigration for connecting flight departure to Colombia? Is there a lounge with one time pass?

     

    Copa does not fly domestic flights. Copa in fact does not fly to Houston. Both of your flights will be on United. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate in Houston. Yes, you can buy a one-time pass for the United Club.

     

  • Is layover time enough from Austin-Houston-Bogota?

    Coming from Austin to Houston (final destination Bogota), is layover time of 50 minutes enough (in Hou)?

     

    Yes, all you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate if both flights are on the same reservation.

    We are flying into IAH on AirNZ arriving 12.40. We want to catch a flight to Mexico City on UA (departing 15.44) or Interjet (departing 16.50). Which do you recommend for a safe connection time? Would obviously prefer to take the earlier flight if possible.

     

    Either should work.

    Hi there, I am trying to get tickets from MSY to IAH (on UA) to connect to a flight to AKL (on NZ) that leaves at 10.15pm. The latest one I can get in arrives at 8.37pm - will I be able to make that connection considering that I have to pick up bags and check them back in? They will be on separate tickets, I will have checked luggage and I am *G (if that helps me in any way). Otherwise the next one arrives at 6.15pm, plenty of time to connect - any point in hopping out of the terminal rather than sitting in a United Club? Thanks in advance!

     

    The 8:37 arrival works if you get your bags checked through to Auckland. If you show your ANZ confirmation to the United Agent in New Orleans they should be able to do that for you (but there's no guarantee).

    Flight from Guadalajara arriving at 8:50 am connecting to a flight departing at 10:15 am to Chicago. Will that be enough time to clear out customs? Will I have to recheck my baggage again? Is the airport (lines) too saturated by that time?

     

    Yes, you will 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. I recommend at least 2 hours.

    Hello, Travelling from Belize through Houston and connecting to Denver with 1 hour and 20 minutes between flights. We are Nexus/GOES card holders. Would this be enough time to make the Denver flight? Or at least possible?

     

    With Global Entry it's possible if you don't have checked bags. Note that if you only have Nexus and not Global Entry then you can't use the expedited line coming from Belize.
