  • Connecting Flight Time

    Arriving UA Flight 3853 and connecting to UA Filght 1012 to Cancun, 55 minutes between flights. Is this enough time to make the connection ?

     

    Yes, that will be enough time if your first flight is on-time. You will likely arrive in concourse B and depart from E. If that's the case take the TerminaLink train which connects all concourses inside security. Also, if you do miss your connection United has numerous flights from Houston to Cancun on most days so you have ample opportunity to be rebooked.

    I am arriving at Terminal A from Toronto10:59 with connecting flight at Terminal C 12:56 going toTampa, what is the quickest way to get from A to C.

     

    Make sure you go through U.S. customs clearance in Toronto - you arrive then as domestic arrivals and merely need to board the above-ground TerminaLink train, which starts its service at the Terminal A station, & connects terminals A, B, C inside security. After the TerminaLink train station at TC, the gateways split into the gateway to gates C24 to C 27, to the right, gateway to gates C14 to C23 in the center, and C2 to C14 to the left. You have plenty of time.

     

  • Time to tranfer to an internal flight

    We have booked to travel to IAH from London UK and have a connecting flight to New orleans. From arrival at IAH to departure of our connecting flight we have 1hour and 15 minutes. We have been assured that our checked in baggage will be routed directly to new orleans without the need for us to collect it at IAH and recheck it for the connecting flight. We have also been informed that we will be able to go through the arrivals procedure in time to make the connection. Can anyone comment on how realistic all this is?

     

    Whatever information you got is wrong - you WILL have to collect it after clearing immigration in Houston and then re-check it at the re-check desk after clearing customs. You will also have to go through security after you drop your bags back off. I think that doing all this in only 75 minutes is highly optimistic. However, United does have almost hourly flights from Houston to New Orleans, so if you do miss your connection you will likely have ample opportunity to be rebooked.

     

    Thanks for the reply and it is what we thought. However, our travel agent is adamant that we do not have to collect checked in baggage at Houston. Here is their replay: "With a through-fare the customers check their bags in a LHR and will collect them at their final destination, New Orleans, without any need to collect or recheck these in Houston. The airline will unload their bags in Houston and move these straight to the connecting flight. In very rare circumstances customers may need to identify their bags at the connecting airport, however this is only in exceptional circumstances (i.e. damage to the bag in transit)and is highly unlikely to happen." please can you comment.

     

    Your travel agent is likely not familiar with the immigration requirements in the United States.

     

    Thanks for your help. We have changed our flight times after your reply.

    i am flying from pearson international arriving at george bush airport houston texas terminal A then taking an international flight terminal E my stop over time says 1hr 30 mins would that be enough time to clear Immigration/customs and get to teminal E

     

    At Pearson you will complete U.S. customs clearance. At IAH, after arrival at Terminal A, take the above-ground TerminaLink train, which starts its service at the Terminal A station, connects terminals A, B, C, D/E inside security; then follow signs to your connecting gate. Bush estimates a 30-min. transfer from A to E - this would not allow for incoming plane delay.

    I am arriving at Terminal A and have a 47 minute window to depart from Terminal C - Is this enough time. Would the outside train or the underground train be quicker ?

     

    On arrival at IAH, take the above-ground TerminaLink train, which starts its service at the Terminal A station, connects terminals B, & C - Hurry!

    If the flight connections is 30 minutes, and the conections is from B to E and is the last flight to connect, it is enough?

     

    You would make it barely: the above-ground TerminaLink train, which starts its service at the Terminal A station, connects terminals A, B, C, D/E inside security (allow for 30 mins transfer from A to D), then follow signs to your D gates. (there is also a tunnel between TD & TE.

    How to get from terminal C to B

     

    While Terminals B & C are close to each other - you can also take the above-ground TerminaLink train, which starts its service at the Terminal A station, connects terminals A, B, C, D/E inside security.

    I will take UA1178 to SanFrancisco and then take connective flight UA889 to Beijing. I want to know which terminal I should check in, terminal C or E. I was informed the depart gate for UA1178 is E20.

     

    On arrival at IAH, take the above-ground TerminaLink train, which starts its service at the Terminal A station, connects terminals A, B, C, D/E inside security (allow for 30 mins transfer from A to D). At the D/E station follow sign to Concourse E, gate E20.

     

    You can check-in in either Terminal, but since the departure is from E, I would check-in in E.

    Will I have enough time to connect from an American airline flight arriving at 5:10pm to a Delta flight departing at 6:00pm

     

    Both AA & DL airlines use Terminal A of IAH, which has gates 1-15 and 17-30 on opposite sides. Just walk over to your connecting gate.

    I have a two hour layover from Cancun to LAX, on united is this enough time to make my flight?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. If for some reason you don't make your connection, United has almost hourly flights from IAH to LAX that you can be rebooked on.

     

  • United Terminal Connection at IAH

    I'm fling from San Francisco to Rio De Janiero Brazil this coming Friday and I have a 40 minute layover at Houston IAH airport. Is this doable? Or should I pay the extra $700 they want to change the flight? What's my chances of getting my baggage lost in the plane change?

     

    I should have mentioned that I'm flying United

     

    If your first flight is on-time that will be enough time. You will arrive in C and depart from E which are connected. If you miss your connection it will be their fault and they will have to reaccommadate you on a different flight.

     

    Thank you for the response ZAP. Do you have any thoughts on the chances of my baggage getting lost in the plane change?

     

    Usually if a person can make it bags can make it as well.

    What is the most efficient way to get from Terminal B to Terminal C? Does one have to go through Security again? Is 39 minutes enough time?

     

    At IAH the above-ground TerminaLink train, starts its service at the Terminal A station, ad connects terminals A, B, C, D/E inside security - you have enough time.

    Flying from Birmingham to San Diego on United changing planes with 21 minutes between flights. The airline changed my flight with this new time. Is it even possible?

     

    It's possible but it will depend on your first flight getting in on-time or preferably early and running. If you call United they should put you on a later flight to SAN or earlier flight from BHM free of charge due to the schedule change. Or, alternatively they could re-book you to connect in Denver if that works better.

    I´ll arrive from Dallas (UA 5265) at 8:26PM with a connecting flight to Rio de Janeiro (UA 129) departing at 21:10PM. Do you think Its a doable connecting time? tks

     

    That's very tight. Flights are frequently delayed late in the day. You will arrive in Terminal B and depart from Terminal E, which are connected beyond security by the TerminaLink Train. If you miss your connection you'll be spending the night and the whole next day in Houston.
