    That will be difficult, but it's not impossible.


  • SFO/ IAH/BON Connections
    Oct 2, 2016
    Do I have enough time? From SFO to Bonaire with a 1 hour connection in IAH? On the return from Bonaire to SFO I have 1 hour and 20 minutes. Is that enough time to get through immigration? No checked bags. Thanks


    Forgot to mention all flights are United


    On the way there that is enough time. On the way back that will be difficult, even without checked bags. Luckily United has frequent flights from IAH to SFO.

    It's possible, but it obviously leaves no time to spare if the flight from DFW is delayed at all.


  • Edmonton - Houston

    I have a flight from Edmonton to Houston with a 40min connection before my flight to Miami. Is this enough time? Carry on bags only


    Yes, that is possible if the flight from Edmonton is on-time. You will pre-clear US Immigration and Customs in Edmonton.

    I have a flight from Venezuela to Delhi (India) with connections in Houston IAH and Newark, all with United. Do I need to claim my baggage in Houston? and pass through Customs ??


    Yes, in Houston you will have to go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk, and go through security. If you are a Venezuelan or Indian citizen you will need a transit visa.


    Thanks a lot for you response

    Yes, all you have to do in Houston is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.


    Uhh oh I meant 42 minute layover to get to terminal b to c at Houston for flight to Calgary thanks for any help


    Still possible. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.


  • Booked with United but flying Air Canada to Toronto, then to Milan
    Sep 28, 2016
    I booked my flight with United but am flying Air Canada to Toronto for a layover, then to Milan. So do I go to IAH Terminal A where Air Canada departs or Terminal E for United international flights?


    If the first flight is operated by Air Canada then you check in with Air Canada in Terminal A.


  • Intl to Domestic transfer: Auckland (NZ) to Houston to Denver
    Sep 28, 2016
    We have had an itinerary change and now have a TWO hour layover in Houston, we are 5 people (2 Adults plus older kids/teens), with luggage including ski gear in holiday season (Dec 27. '17; Arr 13:40 - Dep 15:40) Both flights are United (although NZ to Houston is code share with Air NZ) Is this enough time to get through customs, security etc to make the connection to Denver? Or should I NOT accept the itinerary change?


    Yes, that is enough time if the first flight is on-time. You could ask for a later flight to Denver if that makes you more comfortable though.


  • SAT IAH Connection
    Sep 25, 2016
    I have a scheduled 530 pm flight departing SAT arriving in IAH around 635pm. My layover is 40min for the next international flight to Frankfurt. Is that enough time to arrive at the gate or will it be pushing the buttons? thank you for the response. Another option would be leaving SAT to IAD with a 1hr 25 min layover and departure for Frankfurt. Is that enough time with assuming everything already checked in?


    It's possible but obviously doesn't leave much time to spare. If you haven't booked it yet, I would book the 1 hr 25 min layover at IAD.


    thx! So going with the 435 from SAT to IAD with a 1hr 25 layover is doable? It is in the holiday timeframe December 20/21. I don't know how IAD is connection wise..

    Hi, Arriving on a Monday morning from Tokyo on NH, and have a connection to YUL via IAD on UA. Transit time is 2:35. Is this enough time to clear customs etc and re check in? Alas due to work ticketing restrictions it will be seperate tickets, and won't be able to check through my bags all the way from Tokyo. Thanks in advance


    WIthout bags checked through this is just enough time if everything goes smoothly. You can also show your United confirmation to the ANA agent in Tokyo when checking in and ask that your bags be checked through to Montreal.


  • Transit time for international international connection
    Sep 24, 2016
    Hi, I want to travel back from Cancun via Hou to Frankfurt. Lay over would be 3 hrs. Is that enough to pass US customs and get from Terminal E to D? It'll be Jan 3rd 2017 or is there a lot of travelers due to holidays?


    Yes, that should be enough time if everything goes smoothly. January 3 is the end of the holiday season.

    I am flying Memphis to Houston to Belize City and have a 51 minute layover at IAH. Is that enough time to get off our flight to the Int'l terminal if we carry on bags? I'm assuming there's no way we'd make it with checked luggage. Me and wife traveling


    If both flights are on the same reservation it doesn't matter if you have checked bags or not, you don't have to do anything with them on your way to Belize. All you have to do in Houston is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time. The Skyway train connects all terminals inside security.

    Hi, chilean citizen here. I am fliying (January) from Toronto to Houston, and then from Houston to Santiago Chile. My layover in Houston to take my connection to Chile is only 1 hr... do you think is enough time? will they make me take my luggage and go thru security in Houston or they will send it straight to Chile? Thank you!

  • Luggage Drop after customs
    Sep 23, 2016
    Hi, I'm flying by EVA BR52 next Tuesday to IAH arriving at 11PM, then I have a very long stopover, about 17hrs in IAH. Departing on Wednesday 5:40PM to GDL with United. Would UA accept I drop my luggage after passing customs despite the long stop over time? Or I have to take my luggage out of the airport with me to kill time? Both flights are one ticket.


    No, you will have to wait until at least the next morning to check your bags with united.
