Hi,
I have a two hour layover on July 8th from 7:45 pm to 9:45 pm departing to Sao Paulo, I arrive at Terminal A and must get to Terminal E. Is this enough time and what should I expect?
Thank You.
Where are you flying into Houston from? Are both flights on the same reservation?
I'm flying in from Calgary and yes they are on the same reservation
Then yes, all you have to do is take the Skyway train from A to E and walk to your departure gate. You have plenty of time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and customs in Calgary.
Hi there! I was wondering if 1h20m would be enough for connection time in a international United flight from Tokyo (Japan) via IAH to Panama City with final destination Bogota, Colombia... Last time, I made US immigration process in San Francisco from Japan and it was very slow (more than 2h)... I'm going to travel with my daughter (9 years-old) and for sure, I'm going to have checked bags but all flights are under UA...
No, that's not enough time.
Hi I am flying from Auckland to Houston and connecting to Chicago. I got transit time 1 hour 50 minutes. I have to claim baggage and re-check in to United Airline and go to Security check point. Is it enough time for me? How to go to United Airline Check in and Security ?
Hi, I'm flying with Air New Zealand and we will be arriving to Houston from Auckland. Catching a connecting flight with United to Chicago on the same ticket. Will that be enough time to clear custom, transfer to correct terminal? Lay over time is 1 hour 50minutes
Yes, that is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Hi I am wondering which connection is better: 1 hour 50 mins or 5hours transit between flight in from Auckland transferring from air NZ to United to Fort Lauderdale? thanks
1 hr 50 minutes should be possible.
Hi,

I'm wondering would I have enough time in 40 minutes to transfer from a flight from NYC to Cabo in Mexico. Both flights are with United.

Thanks in advance! 😊
It is just enough time if the first flight is on-time but leaves no time to spare if it's not.
Hi, I'm flying with Air New Zealand and we will be arriving to Houston from Auckland. Catching a connecting flight with United to Orlando on the same ticket. Will that be enough time to clear custom, transfer to correct terminal? Will have a 6 and 3 years old in toll.
That is just enough time if everything goes smoothly.
Iam arriving to IAH from Amsterdam on KLM airline at 1:05 P in Aughst >> how much time do i need to realistically catch the next flight out of IAH to DFW?
On two separate reservations with checked bags you realistically need at least 3 hours.
Hi, I'm flying from Seattle to IAH on Spirit airlines, arriving at 7 am, then I have to get my checked baggage from baggage claim, re-check in with United, go back through security, and catch a United flight at 9:15- is there enough time for that? How do I figure out which gate I arrive and and leave from to plan ahead?
That's just enough time if everything goes smoothly. You will arrive in Terminal A. You won't know where you depart until the day of your flight. Where are you flying to on United?
Thanks for the response! I'm flying from Houston to Nicaragua. At IAH are the United check in desks also in Terminal A?
No, the check in desks you need are in Terminal E.
We have a connecting flight with 35 minutes to get from B to E. Will we have enough time
Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security. However, it leaves no time to spare.
