I am flying from Fort lauderdale to houston and connecting to a flight to new zealand flight arrives at 8.45 pm and departs at 10.05 pm is this enough time to transfer
Yes, that is enough time. All you have to do on your way to New Zealand is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.
I will be travelling from Tucson to Houston Terminal B then Houston Terminal E to Monterrey Mexico with 47min lay over, would it be OK?
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security. Also be aware that many flights to Monterrey leave from Terminal B.
Hi. I will be arriving from New Zealand, landing at terminal D and my connection to Frankfurt also departs terminal D, all on Lufthansa. Will I have to claim my bags between flights?
I also have my eye on a restaurant in terminal E, is it easy to get between these terminals, ie no security barriers?
Your first flight will be on Air New Zealand. Yes, I believe you will have to claim your bags between flights. D and E are just two sides of the same building.
Thanks ZAP 😊
I will be flying from Newark to Ho chi minh, Vietnam with a 1 hr 5 m layover in Houston. Is this enough time?
Yes, all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate if both flights are on the same reservation.
I assume yes...I've been given a transfer time of 36 minutes. Arriving in IAH from MCI and then heading to Vancouver. Guessing both will be in Terminal C? (too early for Flight Aware to have gate/terminal info)
Yes, mainline flights to Canada usually leave from C.
Thanks. I had forgotten to mention they're both United flights.
Hello, I am due to arrive a IAH from London Heathrow with British Airways and connect to a flight from IAH to Panama with Copa. I have a 1hr 15mins transit time to do so. Do you think this will be enough time at all? Also will I have to collect my bags or will they move between the airlines?
That is completely impossible. Yes, you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, take your bags to Copa, re-check them, and go through security.

I arrive from Amsterdam in IAH terminal E with a connection to SFO and further on to HNL. I have 1 hour 40 minutes. Need to clear customs? Bagage claim?
I'm so worried me and my family including baggage won't make it.
By the way we fly UA ica and domestic.

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. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
