  • Connection Time
    Jan 16, 2017
    I am looking at a flight from Tampa to Puerto Vallarta Mexico with a 51 minute layover in Houston. The flight gets into Houston at 11:40 am on a Thursday. Is 51 minutes enough to make it to the gate for the flight to Mexico?


    Yes, that is enough time if the flight from Tampa is on-time.


  • 35 Minutes

    Hi we're flying from SFO to IAH then to Costa Rica we have 35 minutes to change planes once we are at IAH both flights are United. Is the time enough?


    It's possible but it leaves absolutely no time to spare if the first flight is delayed.


  • Connection time?

    Hi, we are flying from Orlando to London Heathrow, with a connection at IAD and 37 mins stopover. Is this enough time to get from Terminal C to E?


    Both flights are United


    Do you mean IAH? If so that's barely enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate, but it still leaves no time to spare.


    Yes, apologies for the typo, I meant IAH. I thought it was tight, I'll speak to my travel agent. What's the minimum you recommend? Thank you


    45 minutes is doable but I personally wouldn't book anything under an hour.


  • enough time to make connection

    Arriving on United 1077 from New Orleans at terminal C at 9;20 am and leaving on United 6297 to Monterrey Mexico from Terminal B at 11:50am. We have NZ passports. Is this a comfortable connection time or should we book a later flight?


    Yes, that is plenty of time. All you have to do is take the Skyway train to Terminal B and board your flight.

    First time flying with a connection stop. So I'm a Canadian who is travelling to Mexico via Houston. I have 1hr30 mins in Houston. What is the first thing I look for once I get off the plane in Houston in order to catch my next flight?? I'm not bringing luggage just carry on and both flights are with united. Thanks!


    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Toronto. All you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. If you have to change terminals the Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.


  • LAX to IAH to MUC
    Jan 14, 2017
    We are flying from LA to MUC with a connection in IAH. UA 1578 from LAX-IAH, and then UA 102 from IAH to MUC. Connection time is 1h 40m and "terminal change" is listed, although the terminals aren't listed. 1) Does anyone know what terminals are involved? 2) Will we be able to make that connection? 3) We only have carry-ons. Do we have to go out of security and then back through security again at the different terminal?


    You arrive in Terminal C and depart from Terminal E. You can just walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You do not have to go through security. You have enough time.


    Thank you very much.


  • 48 min layover in IAH --> TGU
    Jan 13, 2017
    I fly into IAH (Houston) from DCA (Washington DC) and then have a 48-minute layover before the next plane leaves for TGU (Tegucigalpa, Honduras). Do you think I will have enough time to make the plane leaving for TGU?


    It's enough time if the flight from DCA is on-time. You just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Is this enough time when flying in from Guadalajara to Toronto. Both flights are on United


    Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • connecting flight time aa to ba
    Jan 13, 2017
    i have a connecting flight from lax on aa to lhr on ba. is 1 hour 15 min enough time?


    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do is take the skyway train to Terminal D.


  • Inquiry of enough connection time through customs from MEX on UA
    Jan 13, 2017
    My flight arrives in IAH at 7:53pm and departs 9:20pm Mex-Iah-elp


    I need to add, arriving TER E from MEX go through customs and then depart TER B ... Thank you.


    That is a difficult connection, but I think later in the evening it should be possible.


  • Best Place to Meet
    Jan 12, 2017
    I'm coming in on Terminal C and my co-worker is coming into A. Where is the best place to hook up so we can share a ride?


    If one of you don't have checked bags, then that person can meet the other at their gate using the Skyway train. If you both have checked bags then the earlier arriver should take the Subway train to the later arriver's terminal and meet in the baggage claim.


  • 2 hrs to Clear Customs Transfer D to A Terminal - Help?
    Jan 13, 2017
    My son's KLM flight was delayed 30 minutes, now he has 1:59 minutes to gather bags, clear customs, get from Terminal D to Terminal A, check his bag with AA and catch his flight home. Any advice I can pass on to him when he lands?


    Just hurry and hope everything goes smoothly when he lands. If he has to transfer bags to AA himself he will have to take the Subway, which is located in an underground corridor.


    So now the inbound flight is 35 minutes late, squeezing transfer time to 1:54. Any secrets to expediting from terminal D, through customs, then to check in at Terminal A for 4:21PM departure?


    Thank you! I didn't know about the subway. He is changing airlines and going through customs, so it will be all on him to hustle through quickly.


    So, they didn't make the flight. Ticket counter said couldn't get bags checked in on time, so she put them on a later flight. . Then the original outbound flight was delayed. I called AA. Agent gave them seats and instructed me to tell them to get in boarding line. They rushed to the door, but the gate agent closed the door and said too late. Ugh! They caught next flight out, but the lesson is persistence. If the boys had stayed by the original gate and asked to fly stand by, they could have made it.


    They also flew stand by on their last connecting flight home, so we are returning to airport today to retrieve baggage. It was worth it to get them home earlier.

    I'm flying into houston from Heathrow with United and have 1hr 40 minutes before my next flight to Guatemala? Is this enough time? My luggage is small enough for carry on, so is this an option if it takes too long?


    It's just enough time if everything goes perfectly.


  • Enough time
    Jan 12, 2017
    I'm flying from Leon Mexico into Houston that lands at 8:50am with a connection to Chicago at 10:15am. Do I have enough time to collect and recheck my bags and still make my flight?


    That's a pretty difficult connection but not impossible. If you miss your connection, United runs nearly hourly flights from Houston to Chicago.


  • Will there be enough time
    Jan 12, 2017
    I'm looking at United flights from Tulsa to IAH to Puerto Vallarta Mexico. At IAH I'd have an hour layover to get on my flight to Mexico, would that be enough time to make it work?


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The skyway train connects all terminals inside security.
