  • The Netherlands > Housten > Vegas: 1 hr 45 min connect time
    Mar 3, 2016

    Hi, I'm traveling to Las Vegas from Amsterdam Schiphol via Houston IAH with a 1 hr 45 min connect time in Houston. Both flights are United Airlines. Do you think I have enough time?

     

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

     

  • LAX to VER

    I'm arriving from LAX to terminal C at IAH. Then I need to transfer to terminal B for the flight to Veracruz Mexico. Got 90 mins layover. I noticed on a map that terminal C is split into two with a TSA checkpoint in the middle. My flight from LAX is with United, the one to Veracruz with Expressjet/United Express. My concern is making the connection. Ideas, tips? Thank you!

     

    You do not have to go through security. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security. You just have to take the train from C to B.

     

  • International arrival to United 2011 to Atlanta.

    We are flying in at 12.45pm April 4th from Auckland NZ and need to catch a 3pm United flight. Will this be enough time to clear customs and get to our gate? How do i find instructions from terminal D to wherever teh United flight leaves from?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate. United flights can leave from Terminal A, B, C, D, or E. They are all connected inside security by the Skyway train.

    Hi, I have only a 66 minute layover and am a bit worried about my checked luggage getting transferred over in time, since it is going to an international flight. Will my suitcase be transferred automatically? Both flights are via United. Also, I hope I will make it on time!

     

    Yes, your bags will be transferred for you. There is no US customs when exiting the US. All you have to do in Houston on your way to San Jose is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. All gates are connected inside security.

    Is 53 min enough time to connect, both United flights domestic to the international terminal. all checked bags

     

    That should be enough time as long as your flight from Nashville is on-time. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security and all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.

    Flying United with a 55 minute connection time in Houston and will have checked luggage. I am wondering if this is enough time to allow for the transfer of luggage from one plane to another, even though both flights are with United.

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Calgary. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.

    I'm travelling from San Antonio to Toronto and considering a 45 minute at IAH on United. I'll have no checked luggage... Will I make that?

     

    Yes, if your first flight is on-time you have enough time. The Skyway train connects all Terminals inside security.

     

    Thanks

    arrive Terminal D from AKL at 14.15 on Air NZ, depart Terminal B at 15.45 on United to DCA. will I make it and where do I clear customs IAH or DCA?

     

    In IAH you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, then go through security and to your departure gate (which will actually likely be in Terminal C). You barely have enough time if everything goes perfectly.

     

  • Calgary to Houston to Roatan

    Two questions : ) My family is flying from Calgary to Houston to Roatan, arriving in Houston around midnight and then flying to Roatan the next morning at 10:30. Do our bags get checked through? Or do we pick them up and then recheck the next morning? Also, my daughter flight back home goes from Roatan to Houston to Vancouver. She only has a 1 1/2 hour layover in Houston. Will that be enough time for her to go through customs etc? Can you please describe for her what process she will need to do and where? She has nexus global entry so maybe that will help with timing?

     

    You will have to ask the United agent in Calgary if your bags can be checked through. Your connection may be considered "overnight" and thus it may not be allowed. 1 and a half hours is possible if both flights are on United and she has Global Entry. Since she is on an international to International connection she shouldn't have to claim her bags - just go through US Immigration, customs, and security.

     

    Wow thanks for the quick reply Zap! Very helpful and much appreciated!

     

  • Connecting flights?

    Will I have time to get my flight going to Toronto. Tomorrow morning I will arrive at Houston Airport (from Guatemala) at Terminal E and I have to go to Terminal A to get my flight for Toronto. I will probably have to go get my luggage, change terminal, check in my luggage and pass to security and custom. I have one hour and twenty five minutes to do all that. It does not seem realistic... How long does it take to change terminal? What do you think I should do? It is not fault. My flight from Guatemala has been postponed and the one going to Toronto advanced.

     

    You will arrive in terminal e, go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US customs, re-check your bags at the recheck desk if they are tagged through to Toronto, then go through security and take the skyway train to Terminal A. 85 minutes is likely not enough time. If you arrive early in the day you can likely be rebooked on another flight to Toronto.

    Hi I have a flight out of Canada going to Houston and then have a 1 hour layover to catch my connecting flight going to New Orleans. Both are with united and I will have checked baggage. Will this be enough time for me and my bags to get to my connecting flight? Will I have to go through security again? Will I have to collect my checked baggage in houston or will it automatically be transferred?

     

    You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Canada. 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 should have enough time.

     

  • Is 90min enough time to move from terminal A to Terminal D

    I arrive from Canada at terminal A making a connecting flight at terminal D. I have 90min. do I need to clear any security checks or is it straight from A to D.

     

    If both tickets are on the same reservation you can go straight from A to D on the Skyway train inside security.

     

  • DTW --> IAH --> BZE (Domestic arrival --> International Departure)

    I will have 1hr 10mins to make my International connection flight to Belize after arriving domestically from Detroit. I am flying United and will have checked bag. Two questions: 1) Do I have to reclaim my checked bag in Houston and go through security again, and 2) Do I have enough time to comfortably make my international flight? Thank you for your input.

     

    If both flights are on United all you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security. There is no US Customs when leaving the US. You should have plenty of time.

    1/6/2016 Lhr iah Rsw arrived iah ua4 at 6:15 on time,but missed connection to ua1588 which boarding ended at 7:15 due to the walk,immigration,bag collect and drop,customs,tsa,and walk to next gate.was this a legal connection time 1hr?

     

    No, 1 hour is not a legal connection time. The minimum International to Domestic connection time at IAH is 90 minutes, with 2 hours recommended. Whoever sold you that ticket should not have.
