  • Arriving Internation - Connecting to Domestic Flight
    Jun 2, 2016
    We are arriving from Roatan on a Sunday afternoon, with 61 minutes to make it to a connecting flight to STL. Is this enough time to get through customs and security?


    No, that is absolutely not enough time.


  • International connection to domestic flight
    Jun 2, 2016
    United Flight 1025 on 8/7 from Mexico City to Houston, and connecting to United Flight 375, with 1h 55m layover. I assume I'll have to go through Customs in Houston, and then connect to Chicago? Can I check my bag all the way through?


    Your bags will be tagged all the way though but you will have to claim your bags in Houston to go through US Customs. You will re-check them immediately after at the re-check desk. you should have enough time.


  • flight from dfw to iah, and from iah to mbj
    May 25, 2016
    I plan to book trip from dfw to jamaica, and the layover at IAH for 53 minutes, is 53 minutes enough? I hate to miss a flight


    Yes, it is enough time if the flight from DFW is on-time. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.


  • Domestic to International flight in 75mins?
    May 23, 2016
    Flying into Terminal A with AA then have 75 mins to make our connecting International Flight with AirNZ out of terminal D. Will this be enough time?


    On two separate reservations it will be very difficult for you to get your bags, take them to ANZ to re-check, and get through security in time.


  • Transfer from UA domestic flight to UA international flight
    May 23, 2016
    In December I will be transferirng from a UA flight from SFO to an international UA flight to Lima, Peru. Is 70 minutes enough time to make it? Thanks.


    Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


  • Terminal C to B in 51 minutes?
    May 23, 2016
    We're arriving from LAX and connecting to CHS with a layover of 51 minutes. The arrival is into terminal C and the departure from terminal B. Is the layover doable?


    Yes, the skyway train connects all terminals inside security.


  • Changing from domestic to international on a separate ticket
    May 23, 2016
    I'm flying to IAH with United on a separate ticket and have to get to Turkish airline gate after I claim my luggage. I do know I have to security and wonder if 3 hours will be enough time to do all that! Thanks


    3 hours should be enough time as long as your first flight is on-time.


    May 23, 2016
    I have a missionary team traveling to Managua, Nicaragua (about 8-10 people) and am considering taking a United Flight through IAH that has a 1 hr 4 min. layover, and I'm pretty sure we'd be changing termnals. Would this be enough time, considering we'd be taking a 6:10 flight, getting to IAh at 7:56 a.m.?


    Yes, that is enough time. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.

    Arr UA5625, depart UA6135. Need clear security or claim baggage?GDL to YUL.


    Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration,h US Customs, go through security and take the Skyway train to your departure terminal.


  • Checked baggage & Security
    May 20, 2016
    I am flying into Houston from Denver on United, and flying out on a separate ticket with EVA Air. Will I need to go through security again after I pick up my checked bag? Thank you


    Yes, you will have to go through security again. baggage claim is outside security. However, since United and Eva are Star Alliance partners you can show your Eva confirmation to the United agent in Denver and ask that your bag be checked through to Taipei or your final destination.


  • Flying from DFW to Cancun via IAH with one hour transit time in IAH
    Jun 2, 2016
    Flying from DFW to Cancun via IAH with one hour transit time in IAH. Is one hour sufficient to make the transit? Thanks.


    Yes, that is possible as long as the flight from DFW is on-time. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.


    Hello, I will fly next week from London to Managua with 2 hours connection in Houston. Do I have enought time? In order, once in Houston what do I need to do? Thank you.


    May 20, 2016
    Have a 49 min connection in IAH coming from SFO, going to GIG. Looks like SFO->IAH will land in terminal C, IAH->GIG will leave from terminal E. No checked bags, no customs to deal with. Will I be able to get from C to E without leaving secure area and needing to screen again? Both flights are United.


    Yes, you can walk from C to E inside security. You have enough time if your flight from SFO is on-time.


  • London Heathrown - Panama via Houston
    May 20, 2016
    Hi, We are flying from London to panama city via houston and have 1hour 50 to make the connecting flight. We are flying with Austrian airlines. I was wondering if that would be enough time? Thanks, wayne


    Both flights are operated by United. it is technically a legal connection, but it will be very difficult to actually accomplish, bordering on impossible. You have to go through US Immigration, Customs, and security in Houston.


    Hi, Thanks very much for your comment. I have just booked an alternative with a 2hr 32 layover in Newark on route to Panama so I hope that will be better? Thanks very much for your feedback. I hope the new extended period of time will help.. Wayne


    Yes, that is a bit more doable.


  • time for connection
    May 17, 2016
    I will be arriving from Toronto and connecting for a flight to Little Rock. I have 1.5 h between flights. Is it enough? DO I have to go through customs? Do I have to collect my bagage?


    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. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security. You don't have to do anything with your bags, you have enough time.


  • Connection to Orlando
    May 16, 2016
    We are flyin Air NZ Auckland to Houston on Friday Jul 1st arriving at 12.30pm. Our flight to Orlando departs at 2.40pm. Do we have enough time to make this connections


    That is barely enough time if everything goes smoothly and they get the security issues sorted out by july.
