Hi, looking to get a flight in from Santiago to NYC via IAH with a 1hr20min connection to go from an international United flight to a domestic United flight. Is this cutting it too close with immigration and security? I will only have carry-on luggage with me.
Yes, that is cutting it close but with carry ons only it might be enough time if the flight from Santiago is on-time.
Arriving from Ams on UA connecting to UA to Port of Spain; -Do I pick up and check luggage in again? -2 hours enough? -What is min time advisable?
You won't have to claim and re-check your luggage since it is an International to International connection all on UA. You just have to go through US Immigration, customs, and security. You can use OneStop. You should have enough time.
Thanks for the guidance. What is "one stop" exactly?
I also see "Onestop" is only for passengers with no check in luggage and/or not for United passengers?
Onestop is for passengers with no checked luggage OR passengers on ITI connections where their bags are being transferred through to their final destination.
We have flown into Terminal C from NYC but now am flying out of Terminal D to New Zealand, but we came across no security check for leaving the country? Is this normal or have we missed something? We walked from C to D and didn't take the skyway.
Correct, there is no special security when leaving the US.
